What Is 1-844-329-3153 Pop-Up?

This pop-up is supposed to warn you of security vulnerabilities. It will say that an immediate scan of your system is in order. However, it will offer that you call a number for tech support. This is quite suspicious as it wants you to do two contradicting things at the same time. This is because this is actually a fake alert designed to trick users into calling the support hotline. We do not recommend calling the number given by this bogus warning. The fact that it has appeared, however, is evidence that there is a potentially unwanted program on your computer that is generating it. You need to remove this as soon as possible.p2_0000

What Does 1-844-329-3153 Pop-Up Do?

The goal of 1-844-329-3153 Pop-Up is to scare users into calling the hotline. If you do so, a scam will be attempted. After all, at the other end of the line, there will be scammers. They will either try to try you into giving away your money or they will want you to install some software that will actually do harm to your computer rather than help. This is why it is important not to trust this pop-up. Browser pop-ups cannot warn you about problems on your computer. If you see any, be sure that they are fake.

Where Did 1-844-329-3153 Pop-Up Come from?

This misleading pop-up can appear when you access an unreliable website or have an adware program on your computer. In the latter case, the pop-up will appear frequently regardless of the websites you are browsing. Also, it will appear on Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome. Adware programs are not to be kept on your computer as they are regarded as potential security vulnerabilities.

You are probably wondering how this adware program has managed to enter your computer. Well, this is generally accomplished through bundled downloads. This means that it is attached to installers of free programs. Generally, these are ones that are available on third-party websites. There are a few things you can try to prevent unwanted programs such as this from entering your PC:

  • Do not download free software from third-party sources.
  • Skipping through the install wizard will not help you either. Be sure to pay attention.
  • Select Advanced/Custom installation in order to have the opportunity to prevent installation of additional software.

Adware programs can show misleading ads. This is what makes them risky for your system. Even the ones that are supposedly offering you discount, deals, or raffles are not to be trusted. They can take you to pages managed by cyber criminals, which will only put your system at risk.

How to Remove 1-844-329-3153 Pop-Up

Usually, adware programs can be removed manually. Go to Control Panel, access the list of programs, find any unfamiliar or suspicious entries and remove them.

Getting rid of this adware program cannot ensure that your system is safe. If this program has managed to enter your PC, more severe threats will easily do the same. It is strongly advised that you keep reliable security software on your computer. This will remove any programs that pose a threat for your system’s security. At the same time, it will also protect it against any attacks in the future.
