1-647-360-4454 Pop-Ups are misleading alerts that are known to appear on Safari on Mac. These pop-ups will claim that there are some viruses on your computer. You will also hear an automated voice recording warning you of the presence of threats on your Mac. The pop-up alert will also provide a phone number that you are supposed to call in order to fix the problem. We strongly advise against this as these pop-ups are scam aimed at stealing your money and possibly transferring infections onto your Mac. This is why it is important not to trust anything they say and not to call the number.
What Do 1-647-360-4454 Pop-Ups Do?
After these pop-ups appear, it will be almost impossible to close them. Even if you manage to do so, the pop-up will reappear right away. This makes it impossible to use Safari. However, this is just a ploy to get you to call the number. After you do so, you will contact a call center. There they will want you to subscribe to their service. The cheapest option has been reported to be $289 per year. Do not pay any money. This call center will not help you with anything. It does not offer any reliable services. They are a scam and they will steal your money. In fact, it is their software that is causing the 1-647-360-4454 Pop-Ups to appear on your Mac. The only “virus” that you have is precisely their doing.
