Why Do I See (855) 981-9190 Pop-Ups?

Adware distribution usually follows the same path – bundling of software. Both developers and third party digital marketers rely on the method of packed downloads. Both sides turn to bundling for solely financial reasons. Developers tend to do it to cover financial losses or to monetize platforms. Marketers do it to generate traffic to predefined pages and to get hold of the users’ personal details.

Personally identifiable information (PII) consists of:

  • IP addresses (physical locations).
  • Website credentials (passwords, usernames).
  • Browsing habits (histories, search queries).

The listed details are gathered with the help of tracking cookies that are added to the browser with the silent installation of the adware. Keep in mind that some developers advertise their products on legitimate pages. Some products may even have their official pages. If the user pays close attention to the download agreement, he may notice that the developers disclose the addition of tracking cookies. However, the disclosure is usually done in a clever manner.
