247tech.help is website hosting a tech support hotline and offering “a complete one-stop solution for all of your computer related problems”. As useful as this functionality may seem, experts report that the 247tech.help domain is used by adware developers to display fake system warnings suggesting the affected system is infected with malware. Naturally, the hotline number 0-800-051-3723 is promoted as a solution to the supposed problem.

Malware researchers advise you to stay calm if you are presented with the 247tech.help pop-up, because the warning message is generated by an adware program designed to convince the victims to contact the tech service team where they may receive instructions on how to download and install software that may harm your system. The adware responsible for the 247tech.help pop-up notifications is programmed to display fake malware detection in order to scare gullible users.

Instead of calling the provided tech support number, users are advised to run a full system scan and eliminate all adware programs that are active on it.

Why Do You Receive the 247tech.help Pop-up Warnings?

Adware programs can be present on your PC in the form of browser extensions, BHOs (browser helper objects), add-ons, etc. They are often installed alongside other software you download online but since they are not adequately disclosed you may not even realize they enter your system until it’s too late. Tо prevent additional programs and applications from ending up on your computer, it is imperative to select the Advanced installation options.

Why Is 247tech.help Dangerous?

Fake security warnings are often used by cyber criminals to scare users and sell them non-efficient anti-virus solutions. The tech support team promoted by the 247tech.help pop-up may sound like a logical option to solve your problem, but note that the reported issue is of no real value.

If you install any of the products suggested by the “technical specialists” on the line, you may actually expose your system to risk instead of resolving the supposed issue.

As a result of the active adware program in your system, you may see numerous advertisements in the web pages you view. Clicking on them is not advisory, because you may land on corrupted web pages and infect your system with malware.
