Push-checking.com – Spread Techniques

One of the reasons for the unwanted appearance of Push-checking.com redirect in your web browser could be a potentially unwanted program that has managed to gain access to your device. Such a program may have landed on your system as part of a software bundle. There are various free third-party programs available across the web that seem to be useful but instead aim to install undesired extras.

Unfortunately, affected installers rarely reveal the presence of added extras. That’s why users often get tricked into running them along with the primary app. Since the information about all installer’s components is sometimes hidden in Advanced/Custom configuration options, we recommend you to select it every time when it is available.

As of the spread channels for compromised freeware they could be torrent websites, online stores, P2P networks, and others.

Popular web browsers like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Opera and Safari could be affected by Push-checking.com redirect.
