How to remove apps designed to promote liveredby.online?

Also Known As: liveredby.online
Damage level: Medium

What is liveredby[.]online?

Liveredby[.]online can load its deceptive content and open potentially malicious websites. This page is similar to wcoulditbe[.]club, eyourcom[.]fun, ompanied[.]top, and a great number of other pages that serve the same purpose.

Usually, pages like liveredby[.]online are promoted through shady advertisements, websites, and potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) - users do not visit them intentionally. It is noteworthy that users do not download and install PUAs on purpose either.

It is common that apps of this kind are designed to do more than promote untrustworthy websites - they also gather browsing-related and (or) other information, generate advertisements.

Whether the ompanied[.]top page opens a couple of other untrustworthy pages or loads its content depends on its visitor's geolocation. In one way or another, it is strongly recommended not to trust this page.

It is common that pages like this one open various scams used to extract sensitive information, money, trick users into installing browser hijackers, adware, or other unwanted, potentially malicious applications (or even paying money for them), and so on. A couple of examples of pages that ompanied[.]top is likely to open are "You Are Our Winner Today!", "Your System Detected Some Unusual Activity".

Another issue with the ompanied[.]top site is that it loads a deceptive message asking to click the "Allow" button suggesting that clicking it will continue the website. Other pages use other clickbait techniques to trick visitors into allowing them to show notifications.

For example, they display a fake CAPTCHA test suggesting that visitors need to click the "Allow" button to prove that they are not robots. In one way or another, websites like ompanied[.]top should never be allowed to display their notifications.

Usually, their notifications advertise untrustworthy pages, applications, etc. As mentioned in the introduction paragraph, it is common for pages like ompanied[.]top to be opened by browsers that have some PUA installed on them.

Two other reasons not to have any PUAs installed is because they can be designed to generate pop-up ads, coupons, banners surveys, and other advertisements and collect various data. It is important to know that those ads often are used to advertise potentially malicious pages or even to distribute (download, install) unwanted software by executing certain scripts.

Examples of details that PUAs usually collect are Internet Protocol addresses, geolocations, entered search queries, addresses of visited websites, and other browsing data. However, some apps of this kind can read sensitive details (e.g., credit card details, passwords).

Moreover, information collected by PUAs could be used for marketing purposes, to steal identities, make unauthorized purchases, or monetized in other ways.

To summarize, users do not open/visit websites like ompanied[.]top by themselves - it is common that installed PUAs make browsers open them. It is worth mentioning that PUAs can be advertised as useful applications with various features, etc.

However, most PUAs are useless and can cause issues related to online privacy, browsing safety, or other problems. Therefore, it is strongly recommended not to download or install apps of this kind and avoid visiting websites that use deceptive techniques to trick visitors into installing them.

How did adware install on my computer?

Typically, users cause unwanted downloads and installations through deceptive ads that appear mostly on shady websites and are designed to run certain scripts or, while downloading, installing other programs. In the second case, users download, install PUAs when they are bundled together with other programs.

More precisely, when PUAs are included in downloaders, installers of other programs as additional offers. Users agree to download or install PUAs when they leave certain checkboxes ticked or "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar settings unchanged. The aforementioned settings (or checkboxes) often can be used to decline unwanted offers.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

It is important to download programs, files from official websites (and via direct links), and avoid using third-party downloaders, Peer-to-Peer networks (for example, torrent clients, eMule), unofficial websites, and so on. Unofficial, third-party installers should not be used too.

Downloaders and installers that have settings like "Custom", "Advanced" or ticked checkboxes should be checked for offers to download or install bundled applications. Those applications should be opted out before finishing downloads or installations.

One more way to prevent unwanted downloads and installations is to avoid clicking ads that appear on pages relating to gambling, pornography, adult dating, or other shady pages. Quite often, those advertisements are designed to open potentially malicious pages or download, or even install unwanted applications.

Unwanted or suspicious add-ons, plug-ins, or extensions already installed on a browser or programs of this kind installed on the operating system should be removed. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
