What Is Bestdealfor31.life

Bestdealfor31.life is a domain that belongs to a family of adware sites, known as the Best Deal for Life browser redirects.

These types of redirects often are related to various different unwanted applications. These programs, known as PUPs often aim to get slithered on your computer by being added through suspicious methods and you may not even recall installing those applications. Their main purpose is to show a lot of push notifications, banners, pop-ups, and other forms of ads without your consent.

Bestdealfor31.life Redirect Virus

Bestdealfor31.life is likely one of many sites of this type, and another example to prove that is another such site we detected a while back, called Bestdealfor20.life. By visiting this page, you may be asked to allow push notifications to run on your computer, and you may also see different spam messages, ads and other types of content that may ultimately lead you to sites that may be risky for your computer. Clicking on such ads may also lead you to third-party websites, that may seem as legitimate pages, but could be a scam that aims to get information out of you or even a fake login page of Facebook, Gmail and other notorious platforms. These scams and phishing pages may not be your only problem, since some of the pages to which Bestdealfor31.life may lead you to could eventually turn out to be malicious and infect your computer with a virus.

Bestdealfor31.life Redirect – Description

This redirect could make sure to get into your computer no matter what. This is why it uses multiple different methods to be replicated on machines. One of those which accounts for most such apps being distributed is called bundling. It is basically the including of the files of Bestdealfor31.life in the installation process of another free software you may have recently installed.

But it is not easy to opt-out of bundled apps, like the one that causes Bestdealfor31.life to appear on your computer, because not only it is advertised as a free and optional offer to your current installation process, but it is also well hidden in one of the “Custom” or “Advanced” install steps and since most users choose “Express Install”, they often tend to let Bestdealfor31.life slip past them.

The site itself is considered to not be exactly legitimate and as a risky domain, since the ads that it may show or the software causing redirects to it may display could end up slithering a virus inside your computer. But this is not the only reason why we advise you to stay away from it. This domain may also show ads that may be spreading scams or even pages that may trigger automatic downloads that may install multiple infections on your PC or Mac. If this occurs, the redirects may not be the only problem your computer could be facing.

Just like other redirect viruses, such as Quick Radio Search Redirect and Frugalshark.com Browser Hijacker, this web page may not appear to you as something that is dangerous, but in fact, it may be indirectly risky for your information and computer. Seeing it on your machine, could lead to dangerous websites, like the ones mentioned below:

  • Miner pages.
  • Fake retailer sites (financial phishing).
  • Tech support scams.
  • Phishing URLs.
  • Virus URLs.
  • Scam sites.
  • Malicious script sites.

These are the main reasons to consider removing Bestdealfor31.life as fast as possible from your computer.
