What is Blockandsurf?
Blockandsurf is an ad-supported program that is promoted as a helpful tool that you can use in order to block third-party content online. Unfortunately, usually all adware applications are advertised as something they are not. Contrary to its name, the main function of the program is to fill your browser with various advertisements. Blockandsurf is compatible with all popular web browsers and is very similar to other programs of this type such as BlockUTubeAde and TUbeltAdBlockApp.
Moreover, the ads displayed by the adware are not endorsed by it which means you could be presented with false data. We recommend to delete Blockandsurf if you do not want your computer to be exposed to unnecessary Internet security risks.
How does Blockandsurf work?
Blockandsurf usually comes bundled with freeware and shareware. Not only does it not block the third-party content like it is stated in the description of the application, it actually provides it. Once Blockandsurf gets access to your system, it displays ads, pop-ups, sponsored links, banners and other types of adverts in all of your browsers. All of this useless data will noticeably slow down your Internet connection and webpages will take longer to load. You will only be able to return your browser back to normal and eliminate all of the advertisements if you uninstall Blockandsurf. It is not possible to make these changes just via browser settings.
You should be aware of the fact that the ads brought to you by Blockandsurf may not all be trustworthy. If some adverts seem suspicious to you, you should stay away from them. Some of the advertisements may have been created by cyber criminals and clicking on them may cause a redirect to a corrupted page where you could get infected by a malicious program. As the adware does not have any beneficial features and displays unsafe content, our advice is to terminate Blockandsurf.
How to remove Blockandsurf?
Although adware programs are not malicious and do not harm your computer themselves it would still be best to remove Blockandsurf from your PC. The fastest and easiest way to do that is by downloading an anti-malware utility that will scan your PC, detect the threats and eliminate them.
