YouJizz Virus Redirect – How to Remove It (Windows/Mac/Chrome/FF)




What are redirects, related to YouJizz? What is YouJizz? How to remove YouJizz viruses from redirects and stop YouJizz redirects?

YouJizz is the name of an adult site that is very well known and very widely used all over the world. In fact, the site has an alexa ranking of 932 at the time of writing this, making it one of the most popular sites in its category. But we have received multiple reports by users that have received redirects by using YouJizz without an AdBlocker and some of those reports even indicate a possible third-party virus that may be utilizing YouJizz to slither viruses on your computer and since these redirects often lead to third-party sites, YouJizz are not responsible. So it all comes down to you, the user, who has to learn how to protect him or herself from such potentially hazardous redirects.




YouJizz Virus Redirects – Where do They Lead to and What Are The Dangers?

YouJizz Virus redirects can appear during clicking on a banner that is posted on the site or simply by clicking on a video you want to watch. When clicked on a banner without Adblocker, in addition to where the banner lears, we also got a redirect to a website, asking us to accept push notifications:

Not only this, but if yo browse the site without a relevant ad blocking technology, you risk visiting sites via random redirects that appear when you click on a video. We tried to click on a random video and this was the result – a redirect to a live cam site, which also contained cookies and other information trackers:

These infotracking technologies could be of the following types:

  • Cookies.
  • Pixels.
  • Tags.
  • Geo-locators.
  • Other.

They can often be used by scam or other adult site to determine your location and send you messages, like:

Hey, you from “Your Location”. Let’s meet up!

And some of the trackers can be so specific that they can even point out your town or city, not just country. These types of ads may often lead you to sites that waant you to register and subscribe in yearly paid subscriptions on a dating sites, whose credibility cannot be confirmed.




But scam sites are not one of your worst problems if you receive a redirect. Since these redirects often tend to lead to third-party websites, be advised that these sites can often lead to malicious URLs as well. These virus links could in turn run a virus script or auto download and execute JavaScript, .VBS or other virus files that can directly cause an infection on your PC or Mac. This is the main reason why you should NOT trust such redirects and take masures atainst them.

Remove YouJizz Virus Redirects and Stop Them In The Future

If you want to stop advertisements and redirects, but still want to take advantage of the services offered by YouJizz, we strongly recommend that you immediately install an ad-blocking software. For this to happen, we strongly suggest that you follow the measures for protection below:

1.Install an Ad Blocker extension. – Since a big percentage of browser redirects get on your machine as a result of being caused by ads, we strongly suggest that you install an ad-blocker extension. One such extension is Adblock Plus, which is available for basically every browser.

2. Set up a Blacklist. – If you are using a mainstream browser, like Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome, we recommend that you install a web browser extension that is running a blacklist of the websites that cause redirects each time you visit them. One such extension is “Blacklist” for Google Chome, but there are many analogues of the extension for other web browsers as well.

3. Set up a VPN Connection. – Usually, some browser redirects tend to take you through sites that install cookies on your PC or Mac. These cookies stay on your system and they track your online behavior. Since they are authorized by your browser automatically, you have no way of knowing they exist. This is why, if you set up a VPN connection, the cookies may not actually track information linked to your IP address. And not only this, but you also become anonymous for any websites and redirect pages that may want to track your information. Below you can see the best VPN services for 2018:

4. (Optional) Install a Security Browser – With a big percentage of malware infecting victims via web browsers, you can now install a web browser that is specifically created for security. The security field has become denser and denser with security-specific browsers made by big cyber-sec companies. Below, in the related story, you can see secure web browsers among which you can choose. These browsers have all the necessary online protection that blocks redirects and performs scans of phishing and scam pages:

How to Stop Redirects on Your Android Smartphone?

For Android smartphone, there are many apps that can be installed and that aim to cut connection, but sometimes, these apps are not as effective. For example, Adblock Plus for Android might block ads on your browser, but then you have to disable certain defneses from our Android phone, like the ability to install it as a third-party app, for example. One way is to change your DNS to an ad-blocking type of DNS that will cut out any random redirections that appear on your smartphone. Below, you can see how you can use DNS66 to block out ads and redirects on your Android device:
