NewTaber Redirect – What Does It Do
NewTaber can end up being added to your Mac via a software that may be added to it recently. Such technique is known as bundling and it means that NewTaber could be included as a “free extra” or “optional offer” that is included in the setup steps of another freeware that you may have recently downloaded on your machine. And it is easy to miss such install steps because they are often concealed in the “Custom” or “Advanced” install modes.
The main activity of NewTaber revolves around the ads it may display on your computer. These advertisements could be of the below-mentioned types:
- Banner adverts.
- Ads appearing instead of search results.
- Browser pop-ups.
- Redirects and transfers to third-party sites.
- Text-embedded advertisements.
- Push notifications promotions.
NewTaber or the ads it may display on your computer could eventually use trackers of various types to obtain information from you. These trackers could be from the below-mentioned types:
- Geo-location trackers.
- LSOs (Locally Shared Objects, also known as flash cookies).
NewTaber can use those trackers to obtain different types of information from your computer, such as the following details on your online activity:
- Bookmarked sites.
- Browser history.
- Pages visited.
- Your clicks made online.
NewTaber is not dangerous because of the trackers it uses, though. Other risks because of which this program could be a problem on your computer are that it could lead you to very risky sites, such as:
- Scam surveys.
- Phishing or “Fake” sites.
- Tech support scams.
- Scamming sites.
- Virus domains.
- Rogue software download frauds.
- Endless redirect loop schemes.
These are what make NewTaber indirectly risky for your computer and removing it is strongly reccomended.
