Rompilsy.com – Delivery Techniques

The Rompilsy.com redirect may occur after the installation of a potentially unwanted program or a suspicious browser extension. Freeware installation setups often provide additional components that remain hidden in the Advanced/Custom options. The good news is that when you select the Advanced option, you can opt out all unwanted elements or at least be informed that a potentially unwanted program is also to be installed. This act of caution can prevent the annoying Rompilsy.com infection.

The redirect may also find its way to your system via fake software update notifications. The pop up may seem entirely legit, but if you look carefully at all the details you will definitely notice that someone is trying to trick you into installing a malicious app.

Another possible way to get infected with Rompilsy.com redirect is via a corrupted web page that unnoticeably downloads it on the system.

Rompilsy.com redirect possibly occurs on all frequently used and trustworthy web browsers – Google, Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, Opera and Edge.

Rompilsy.com – Technical Details

Once Rompilsy.com gains access to the system it can alter essential browser settings so it can cause constant redirects to its domain. The modifications may affect the browser homepage, the new tab page and the default search engine. All can be set to display the Rompilsy.com browser hijacker.

The primary purpose of Rompilsy.com is to promote you various kinds of products, services, games and apps so its owners can monetize the project. As a result, you may have significantly diminished browsing experience due to a lot of annoying advertisements of all kind – banners, pop-ups, images, pages, pop-unders and links to sponsored content. All these ads expose your system at significant risk of severe malware infections, just a click on the wrong add can lead to a new malware infection on the computer.

Furthermore, the hijacker may install a browser add-on that is designed to collect either personal or non-personal information from the browser. Currently, there is no access to the Privacy Policy section of Rompilsy.com redirect, so it is not clear what information it collects and how it handles it. However, there is no doubt that being classified as a browser hijacker, Rompilsy.com gathers many details about you, your browsing habits and the device you use so it can then use the data for advertising purposes.

As long as it is installed on the computer it may obtain data about your email, your browser type and version, your search queries, all visited websites and web pages, your IP address, details about your computer operating system and cookies related data.

The bad news is that Rompilsy.com owners may disclose the collected information to third-party services or other obscure company partners. Then the receivers will be able to deliver you additional sponsored content and send annoying emails that at worst may deliver devastating computer infections like ransomware.
