Have you ever been redirected to Pcontentdelivery.info? This website appears on your browser due to an adware infection. You’ll also get bombarded with different ads that are ‘Powered by Pcontentdelivery.info’ or “Brought to you by Pcontentdelivery.info”. You should know that this malicious software cares only about how many ads it can produce, not if they lead to secure pages. That being said, there’s no way of knowing where such promotions can reroute you to. And, because of the large amount of sponsored content, your browser will be unable to run properly, making it difficult to have a normal online activity.
Adware’s main objective is to create revenue for its creators and the pages it will promote, via the pay-per-click method. And, to make sure its mission is successful, it will spy on your web actions. Every page that you visit, every word you type into your search engine, everything. This information is valuable to the parasite, since it allows it to customize the shown adverts, so they are more attractive to the user, and therefore, more likely to get clicked.
Don’t worry, you didn’t get hacked. Adware is not that advanced. The only way it can get access to your device, is if you give it permission. Yes, that’s right. You brought this nightmare upon yourself. Not consciously, of course. Many users unknowingly install dangerous parasites on their computer, without even realizing it. This often happens when they install under the Quick setup mode, and thus any hidden additional software gets automatically installed on their PC.
To make sure this doesn’t happen, we suggest selecting an Advanced/Custom type of installation. By following our advice, any bonus content that has been hidden from you, will become visible for you to opt out of. Adware can also sneak its way on your computer via spam email messages that contain attachments and/or executable files, as well as fake updates and torrent files. It would take just one click to unknowingly allow this parasite to infiltrate your computer. You might think you’re clicking on a seemingly reliable ad or link, but in reality, you might be falling into a malicious trap.
Do not ignore the danger that comes with this adware! A parasite from this category is anything but harmless. The longer you delay taking action, the worse your situation will get. As time goes by, this adware will get more and more aggressive. Not just that, but if you don’t get rid of this menace in time, your browsing history and search queries will not be the only private information exposed.
Crooks can exploit this opportunity to get their hands on sensitive data such as, but not limited to passwords, credit card numbers, bank account credentials, IP addresses, Login ID, etc. The good news is, you can protect your online security and privacy. All you have to do is to remove the Pcontentdelivery.info adware from your computer as soon as you notice its existence. Do not delay its removal! The sooner you get rid of it, the better!
