Be on the lookout for a pop-up, called Removepop.co. It is classified by most browsers as a fraud and should not be trusted. Reports claim this pop up claims to have identified several issues in your system, for example ‘Your PC Has Been Infected’ or ‘Your Hard Drive Is Full’ along with buttons that may say ‘Scan Now’ or something similar to that. If you see any of those, it is recommended not to click on them since they might lead you to different risky websites that may cause harm to your PC or exploit you for information.
Removepop.co – How Does It Work?
The domain itself (removepop.com) is classified by some browsers as fraudulent and is usually blocked. However, Removepop may have many redirects to other domains via suspicious pop-up advertisements. This fake tech support site is believed to trick you into revealing your personal information, by possibly talking to a fake specialist. Also, reports indicate that it might charge customers unusually high amounts of money for their services. Another risk is that it might charge you insane rates for the talking time with the security ‘experts’.
Although it hasn’t been officially confirmed that these Removepop pop-ups can damage your system, you should be extremely careful, since there is absolutely no service that can identify viruses on your computer and then display a pop-up advert. That is highly unlikely because such ‘experts’ do not have an active connection or software installed on your systems. So it is recommended to never trust such pop-ups because this can result in numerous consequences, main of which are:
- You might be a victim of identity theft.
- You may experience financial losses.
- Cyber crooks might be able to access your PC by talking to you on the phone, using ‘social engineering.’
