1-647-360-4454 Pop-Ups are misleading alerts that are known to appear on Safari on Mac. These pop-ups will claim that there are some viruses on your computer. You will also hear an automated voice recording warning you of the presence of threats on your Mac. The pop-up alert will also provide a phone number that you are supposed to call in order to fix the problem. We strongly advise against this as these pop-ups are scam aimed at stealing your money and possibly transferring infections onto your Mac. This is why it is important not to trust anything they say and not to call the number.1-647-360-4554 Pop-Ups

What Do 1-647-360-4454 Pop-Ups Do?

After these pop-ups appear, it will be almost impossible to close them. Even if you manage to do so, the pop-up will reappear right away. This makes it impossible to use Safari. However, this is just a ploy to get you to call the number. After you do so, you will contact a call center. There they will want you to subscribe to their service. The cheapest option has been reported to be $289 per year. Do not pay any money. This call center will not help you with anything. It does not offer any reliable services. They are a scam and they will steal your money. In fact, it is their software that is causing the 1-647-360-4454 Pop-Ups to appear on your Mac. The only “virus” that you have is precisely their doing.

How to Get Rid of 1-647-360-4454 Pop-Ups?

This is a JavaScript pop-up, so there is nothing has actually been transferred to your Mac as of yet, apart from some cookies that the website may use. This means that you have to close the tab that is showing you the fake pop-up alert. As we mentioned, if you click OK in an attempt to close it, it will just reopen again. So here are a few things you can try to remove the pop-up:

  • On the Menu bar, go to Safari > About Safari. Then click OK on the pop-up. After it closes, it should reappear, but with an option that says Don’t show more alerts from this webpage. Check this and click OK. Now, close the tab. If this does not work, then try one of the subsequent options.
  • Force-quitting Safari. It is possible that the menu bar has been blocked by the JavaScript. In this case, the former method will not work. You can press Command + Option + Esc, then select Safari, and clock on Force Quit. This will close Safari completely. When relaunching it, you have to be holding the Shift key. This will prevent tabs from the previous session from loading. However, if you have had important tabs opened, you will lose them. If you are not keen on this idea, move to the next option.
  • This method requires you to force-quit Safari. After you do so, disconnect from the Internet. Then, relaunch Safari as you would normally. The JavaScript will try to load, but as there is no internet connection it will fail, so you will be able to close the tab without any troubles. Once you do so, just reconnect to the Internet.

It is also recommended that you clean any information by the website stored on your browser. To do this:

→Go to Safari > Preferences… > Privacy > Remove All Website Data. Try to look for anything unfamiliar or that says macsecuirty-alert.com on it.
