Stop browser redirects to streamit-online.com by removing the adware responsible for the redirects in your browser. Adware uses a deceptive technique to install on the PC, this technique is called bundling. Download managers that use “bundling” are known as “Pay-Per-Install” (PPI) or “monetization” installation bundles. Pay, Per Install download managers are an adware deployment tool for adware publishers to get paid for every new adware installation.
The installation user interface of the Download manager does not directly disclosure the adware present; it’s hidden by a human psychology trick called Dark Patterns. A Dark Pattern is a technique used to create a graphical user interface with a remarkable big next or install button, and a very small decline button. It’s deceptive, these download managers don’t want you to notice the additional adware that is secretly installed with the initial software you would like to download. This is the most common way for adware to infect the computer and start browser redirects to the streamit-online.com ad.
