Stop Redirects in Chrome
Adware is responsible for the disturbing, often useless pop-up advertisements in one or more of your installed browser(s). These advertisements open a new window in Google Chrome and redirect the browser to suspicious advertisements from even more suspicious advertisement networks.
Adware is known to target Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10, MacOS and even Android devices. It’s very common these days for cybercriminals to make money online with malicious, forced advertisements. This has nothing to do with the legitimate advertisements as you see on lot’s of websites online.
Because adware is making lots of money for suspicious advertisers and their networks, the crooks always find new ways of monetizing their software. This is not a bad thing, as long as you do not hide this information from the computer-user or over-do the computer and browser with intrusive ads and redirects. Adware is known to do both.
How did the redirects in Chrome occur?
Adware is responsible for the redirects in Google Chrome. Adware uses a deceptive technique to enter the computer, this technique is called bundling or pay per install. This a technique where the software producers add additional adware to the original software installation process for revenue.
The installation process of the software you wanted to download does not directly disclosure their present, it’s hidden by a human psychology trick named Dark Patterns. These Dark Patterns are used to make sure people click thru their installation process without noticing what they actually install on their computer.
There is, however, a very small button, or a checkbox that might disclosure the presence of the additional adware but a lot of people do not see it as they click the Next button to install their desired software. Adware is known to cause intrusive redirects in Google Chrome.
How to avoid adware and the redirects in Google Chrome?
To avoid adware and their intrusive pop-up redirects, do not click too fast on the Next button during installation of any software installation.
Instead, read what you actually install. Click every button to see if it exposes some form or adware, especially “custom”, “advanced” or a “more” button. Adware is most of the time installed by the computer user itself. Uncheck all items you do not wish to install.
If the software installation has an EULA (end user license agreement), read this EULA to find out what kind of software is included during installation. It may prevent adware from installing by recognizing and uncheck adware and potentially unwanted programs during installation of free software downloaded from the internet.
