Update August 2019. What is Loompasplace (loompasplace.com) and why does it pop-up on your iPhone / Mac device?

Loomasplace is an invasive pop-up stemming from a suspicious domain that has been reported to harass Apple users.

Loompasplace Pop-Up – What is It All About?

The Loompasplace pop-up may be considered a “virus” due to its sudden appearance. In fact, this pop-up is not a virus at all. Its annoying presence on Mac devices is usually a result of an unattended installation of a potentially unwanted program with browser-hijacking capabilities.

It’s very likely that you may have installed an extra (bundled) app along with a recently downloaded program. A way to prevent installing undesired apps is the Advanced/Custom installer option as sometimes it reveals the presence of PUPs and enables you to opt out their installation.

Another issue that may be a result of the Loompasplace pop-up pop-up is intensive browser crashes. To fix this issue you need to restart the device and relaunch the browser by holding the shift key down. Then you should remove all unknown profiles and bogus extensions. You should also reset your search engine and homepage, if needed.

If the completion of these steps doesn’t solve the problem and the pop-up keeps showing up either on your iPhone or your Mac, have a look at our corresponding removal guides and find out how to fully get rid of the Loompasplace pop-up.
