What is Adblockerr?
Initially, Adblockerr may seem legitimate and useful by offering useful functionality to prevent various adware and malware infections - "Adblockerr helps thousand of users daily protect their PC from malicious websites adware, online fraud,virus attacks,phasing websites and cookie tracking based advertisements."
These claims are false, since Adblockerr is classed as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) and adware - it infiltrates systems without users' permission, displays intrusive ads, and tracks Internet browsing activity.
This adware displays a variety of third party advertisements, none of which originate from the visited websites - they conceal underlying content, thereby significantly diminishing the Internet browsing experience. Furthermore, some may redirect to potentially infectious sites, and thus, clicking them can lead to further computer infections.
This is achieved using a virtual layer, which enables placement of any third party graphical content on visited websites. Be aware that Adblockerr monitors Internet browsing activity and collects data that may be personally identifiable. The developers of Adblockerr later share these details with third parties who can misuse it to generate revenue.
Therefore, having this application installed on your system can lead to various privacy issues or even identity theft. You are strongly advised to uninstall Adblockerr immediately.
Adblockerr is not the only deceptive application claiming to enhance the Internet browsing experience.
There are hundreds of adware-type apps (including Deal Maverick, PlayGEM, ZiperFly, and YellowSend) that also claim to provide 'useful' features. In fact, their purpose is to display ads and collect personally identifiable information after infiltrating the system. These apps are designed simply to generate revenue for the developers - they provide no real value for users.
How did Adblockerr install on my computer?
Although Adblockerr is available for download on its official website, many users install this application inadvertently without their consent. Adblockerr is likely to be distributed using a deceptive software marketing method called 'bundling' - stealth installation of PUPs.
Developers conceal PUPs within the 'Custom' or 'Advanced' settings, since many users do not pay enough attention when downloading and installing software. By rushing these processes, and skipping most/all steps, they inadvertently install rogue apps and expose their systems to risk of infection.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Do not rush the download or installation processes. Closely analyze each step and decline all offers to download or install additional apps. Furthermore, all software should be downloaded and installed with the 'Custom' or 'Advanced' options - this will reveal any bundled software listed for installation and allow you to opt-out.
