What Are and and Warrantsafety.infoThere are many schemes which cyber criminals use to scam users out of their personal information and their money. They will try to make it seem as though they are helping you, but this will not be the case. The websites and are a perfect example of this. If you go to these websites, you will notice that they are totally the same. Even the service is called Instant Tech Expert, but the domain names are not even remotely related to that name. This should already alert you whether these websites should be trusted or not. They will definitely not provide you with any tech support. Instead, they will try to scam you. This is why you should avoid them at all costs.

What Are the Dangers of and

The websites will offer you to call their tech support hotline. Calling the phone number is quite expensive. However, you will discover this only when you receive your phone bill. What is more, cyber criminals may ask you for your personal and credit card details. If you give your information to them, they will be able to steal your identity and your money. This is why you should not trust these websites.

The fact that both websites do not have Privacy Policy and Terms and Conditions pages on them should raise your suspicions. Also, the links to their social media profiles are also inactive. That is because they do not have any profiles on social media. The websites are designed to mimic what an actual tech support website should look like. And they may seem quite convincing to most users. Still, we do not recommend trusting them as they will cause nothing but trouble for you.

Ads for and Keep Appearing

If ads for these websites start showing up while you are browsing the web, then one of two things is happening:

→You are on an unreliable website
There is adware on your computer

In the first case all you need to do is leave the website, while in the latter one, you will have to uninstall the program. If the ads keep appearing on reliable websites, then there definitely is adware on the PC. Typically, adware programs can be uninstalled just like any other program, but some of them may be harder to handle. If this is the case, we recommend using a reliable antimalware tool. This will completely remove the adware. What is more, it will also prevent any unwanted programs from entering your PC in the future, and it will also protect it against more severe threats such as malware.

We recommend that in the future you do your research before trusting any tech support. This also goes for any system cleaning tools as there are a lot of fake ones being offered around the web. As you can see, cyber criminals have many ways of scamming users. The web is a place that is not all that safe. This is why you should stay vigilant at all times.

Spy Hunter scanner will only detect the threat. If you want the threat to be automatically removed, you need to purchase the full version of the anti-malware tool.Find Out More About SpyHunter Anti-Malware Tool / How to Uninstall SpyHunter
