Are the alerts legitimate

You possibly recently installed a freeware, and through it you obtained the advertising-supported software. A lot of freeware have something added to them, and by choosing Default mode, you are allowing them to install. Advanced or Custom settings are the settings you should opt for. Those extra offers will be visible in Advanced, so just uncheck the boxes. It would be a wise idea to always deselect everything because if you weren’t properly informed about their installation, they don’t belong on your operating system. If you want to have to eliminate “Google Security Warning” virus or similar for the last time, start paying attention to how you install software, and where you get them from.

Most tech-support scams are identical, they all want users to think that their machine has encountered an issue. You’re probably seeing a supposed damaging program, licensing or computer issues, because con artists aren’t very creative when it comes to schemes, and they’re all basically identical. Since the likelihood of data loss seems pretty terrifying, the ad will most likely also include warnings about possible data loss or leak. In order to prevent those data loss scenarios, the user is required to call con artists who are acting as tech-support. No trustworthy company will ever ask you to call them, so remember that. So if you get an ad from Apple, Microsoft, or some other technology company, and are required to call them, you’re being scammed. These con artists would attempt to convince you that there is a lot wrong with your system, and while they could resolve it, it would cost money. Tech-support scams are not very convincing but because less-computer savvy users are not aware of them, they could become victims. It is not difficult to imagine why somebody would fall for these scams because if they are regularly popping up, they might look pretty real. If you do not believe us when we say real companies would never alert you about malware via browser, you could always investigate the given number. Most results will include comments from users advising to be careful of these con artists. So you could just safely ignore the alerts while you get rid of what’s causing them. There is nothing to worry about if you’ve encountered it once, but if you get them all the time, you will have to erase “Google Security Warning” virus advertising-supported software.
