TVzone.tv – How Did I Get It?

You can get the TVzone.tv adware in a couple of ways. Third-party installer setups could have placed software on your computer that is generating the ads in your browser programs. Those installations usually arrive from freeware and bundled packages. Without your awareness, extra content can be installed to your personal computer. Preventing installations of that sort and any other unwanted software is possible if you manage to find Custom or Advanced settings in the setup.

Getting the TVzone.tv adware also happens with the aid of redirects and advertisements, which are hosted on other dubious websites. Pop-ups, pop-unders, and banners might have links inside them that will redirect you. Upon visiting such websites, especially if they are with unknown origins, might inject the adware inside your computer machine. Browsers which could be affected are: Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Safari.

TVzone.tv – What Does It Do?

TVzone.tv is the domain for a movie trailers platform. Alas, the platform is not exactly about that as its main goal is to push advertisements. Hence, it is considered an adware, which goes by the name of TVZONE – the same as the domain. The website is promoted as a platform for watching trailers of movies. However, it has only around twenty movie trailers, and most of them are for the newest and upcoming movies.

This is what the page TVzone.tv looks like:

stf-tvzone-tv-zone-adware-adverts-ads-main-site-page

As you can see above, TVzone.tv looks filled to the brim with movie trailers, but that is more or less the entirety of its content. The rest of the pages are filled with short thirty-second videos that look like fan-made and are random bits and pieces from the movie.

There might be advertisements related to movies on other websites that redirect to TVzone.tv. Some of them might even advertise that you can watch the whole movie on the site if you visit it. As tempting as that can be, refrain from clicking on similar ads, as not only will they waste your time, but might even have malware on them.

If your computer device has the adware which is associated with TVzone.tv installed or in another way set on it, you will witness lots of ads. That can happen instantly or when you are casually browsing internet pages. In case your browser applications have any add-on, plug-in or extension connected to this adware, you might see a wall of advertisements just like the website’s main page. The website and adware can redirect you regularly to other online pages which are affiliated or partnered with the owners of TVzone.tv. Advertisements can have a text message inside them.

Various texts which may show inside the adverts:

  • Ads by TVzone.tv
  • Advertisement by TVzone.tv
  • Ad by TVzone.tv
  • Advert from TVzone.tv
  • Powered by TVzone.tv
  • Brought to you by TVzone.tv

Each redirect could make money for the owners of this adware by using a pay-per-click plan. It is very probable to witness targeted advertisements, pop-ups on the website from its affiliates among other related content. That may be so, due to tracking cookies utilized by the website. Adverts which are connected to TVzone.tv are in the shape of pop-ups, pop-unders, movie ticket discounts, banners, interstitial and transitional ads, as well as sliders and a few more ad types.

TVzone.tv – Privacy Policy

The Privacy Policy of TVzone.tv, can be seen in the below screenshot. The Privacy Policy is quite short but provides some insight about how your privacy is intruded. The policy states that the website collects both personally and non-personally identifying information. Advertising networks who promote their products on this site use cookies to collect some of that information. With it, they show you with targeted advertisements based on your interests and interactions.

This is how the Privacy Policy looks like:

stf-tvzone-tv-zone-adware-adverts-ads-privacy-policy

From the Policy, here is what information will be collected from you:

Personally identifying information:
  • Your name
  • Your email address
  • Voluntarily submitted information
  • Other similar information
Non-personally identifying information:
  • Browser name
  • The type of your computer
  • Other technical information
  • Means of connection to the site
  • Operating system
  • Internet service provider
  • Other similar information

You will also want to see the following quotation from the Policy, which is about the third party websites, connected to TVzone.tv:

Users may find advertising or other content on our Site that link to the sites and services of our partners, suppliers, advertisers, sponsors, licensors and other third parties. We do not control the content or links that appear on these sites and are not responsible for the practices employed by websites linked to or from our Site. In addition, these sites or services, including their content and links, may be constantly changing. These sites and services may have their own privacy policies and customer service policies.

From that excerpt above it becomes apparent that the adware owners are working with third parties, which will also gather information from you, but act as they are not responsible for any of it, which is untrue.

Browser cookies can acquire some of the information that is listed above. The policy says that TVzone.tv will disclose any of the collected information to third party companies, such as business partners, trusted affiliates and advertisers. In case you don’t want for your privacy to be invaded in that way, you should remove this adware as soon as possible.
