Yourtechsupport Removal Tips
Yourtechsupport, also known as Yourtechsupport.org, is a website that keeps reappearing on your screen when you have an ad-supported program installed on it. The malicious page tries to convince you that you have problems with your computer like spyware or adware and that your personal data is at risk. That is not entirely true. Although you do have an ad-supported program installed, it can not steal your personal data.
What it can do is present you with fake ads like Yourtechsupport. The creators of this scam try to convince you to call a “free expert tech support” number. Needless to say, if you do make the call, you will not reach computer experts, but rather contact the cyber criminals. Do not follow the instructions on the fake site and get rid of Yourtechsupport right away.
How does Yourtechsupport work?
You may get redirected to Yourtechsupport.org when you search for something online or click on new tab. It may even be set as your home page. The information provided on the site may seem reliable for someone who has never encountered similar scams before, but we assure you, it is completely misleading. You do not have spyware or malware on your computer, and you most certainly do not need to call any numbers to clean your PC. The schemers try to convince you that your personal data such as logins and passwords, private photos and banking information is at risk. These scare tactics are used in order to persuade you into purchasing the fake software that you will be offered if you call the provided number. Do not fall for this trick and do not believe a single word presented on the malicious site.
In order to eliminate Yourtechsupport, you will have to deal with the adware that is responsible for it. If you see the fake page, chances are, you are also exposed to other pop-ups, ads and banners. Once you delete Yourtechsupport, you will get rid of those as well.
