How to uninstall unwanted apps designed to open earntthatyo.biz?

Also Known As: Ads by earntthatyo.biz
Damage level: Medium

What is earntthatyo[.]biz?

The earntthatyo[.]biz website can open shady websites and display its content. It depends on the visitor's IP address/geolocation.

In one way or another, earntthatyo[.]biz is not a trustworthy website. It is noteworthy that there are many pages like earntthatyo[.]biz, for example, rtenmy[.]com, oundoutth[.]biz, and pplyforthe[.]biz.

It is very uncommon for them to be visited on purpose. Quite often, browsers open them on a regular basis because they have one or another potentially unwanted application (PUA) installed on them.

Also, pages like oearntthatyo[.]biz can be promoted through untrustworthy advertisements and dubious web pages.

As a rule, websites like earntthatyo[.]biz are used to promote various untrustworthy websites. Once visited, they open deceptive download pages for browser hijackers, adware, scam pages like "Chance To Win The New iPad Pro", "Norton Antivirus 2021 Update", "Error Code: #0x564897", and other untrustworthy, potentially malicious sites.

In some cases, they promote legitimate pages. However, it does not make them legitimate. Another problem with such pages is that they can load deceptive content.

In most cases, they load content designed to trick visitors into allowing them to show notifications. Earntthatyo[.]biz loads a message saying that it is necessary to click the "Allow" button to continue loading the page.

Other pages use other clickbait techniques to trick visitors into agreeing to receive their notifications. For example, they load a fake CAPTCHA test suggesting that visitors will prove that they are not robots by clicking the "Allow" button.

It is highly advisable not to agree to see notifications from pages like earntthatyo[.]biz. Their notifications usually contain deceptive ads, promote shady websites, etc.

It is important to mention that PUAs can be designed to display pop-up ads, coupons, banners surveys, and other advertisements. What is worse, their ads can promote questionable pages or distribute unwanted applications by designing them to run certain scripts.

Another common problem with PUAs is that they are designed to collect IP addresses, geolocations, entered search queries, addresses of visited pages, etc., or even sensitive information (e.g., credit card details, passwords). Users should never have any PUAs installed on browsers or computers because gathered information may be sold to third parties (potentially cybercriminals), used for marketing purposes, identity fraud, and so on.

In conclusion, earntthatyo[.]biz and all the other similar pages are not trustworthy and should never be visited. Although, most users end up on those pages unintentionally.

As mentioned in previous paragraphs, it is common for pages like earntthatyo[.]biz to be promoted via PUAs. It is not common for such apps to be downloaded and installed on purpose.

A couple of examples of occasions when users cause unwanted, unexpected downloads and installations are provided in the next paragraph.

How did adware install on my computer?

In most cases, users download or install potentially unwanted applications when they are bundled with other programs - when those apps are offered in downloaders and installers, and users do not decline them.

As a rule, offers to download or install bundled PUAs can be found in settings like "Advanced", "Custom", "Manual" or alongside checkboxes that those downloaders, installers have. By leaving those settings unchanged (or checkboxes ticked), users agree to download or install PUAs together with wanted programs.

In some cases, users cause unwanted downloads or installations by clicking deceptive advertisements that are designed to execute certain scripts. Usually, such ads appear on potentially malicious, shady websites.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

Files and software should be downloaded from official sites via direct links only. Other sources, channels like third-party downloaders, Peer-to-Peer networks like torrent clients, eMule, etc., can be used to distribute PUAs and even malicious apps.

Downloaders and installers that have "Advanced" "Custom", "Manual", or other settings, or checkboxes should be checked for additional offers. It is common that those settings, checkboxes can be used to decline, opt out unwanted offers.

Advertisements appearing on questionable pages should not be clicked as well. Those ads can be designed to open untrustworthy websites or even worse - to execute scripts designed to start unwanted downloads, installations.

All unwanted, unknown, or suspicious apps (extensions, plug-ins, add-ons) installed on a browser should be removed from it as soon as possible. The same applies to software of this kind installed on the operating system.

If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.

How to avoid browser notification spam?

Only allow notifications from websites that you fully trust. For added security - use an anti-malware application with a real-time web browsing monitor to block shady websites that tries to trick you into allowing spam notifications. We recommend using Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows.
