Do you know what Google Chrome Warning Alert Scam is?
If you ever encounter Google Chrome Warning Alert Scam, i.e., see a warning from support.google.com claiming that your system is infected with malware on your screen, you should know that your system is fine and you have just landed on an untrustworthy page containing a fake alert. Malware researchers say that users usually encounter Google Chrome Warning Alert Scam when they open an untrustworthy page and get redirected to another domain disseminating fake alerts. Also, users who see scary warnings might have malware automatically opening them periodically installed on their systems. It does not mean that your system is clean if you know nothing about the entrance of bad software on your computer. Unfortunately, the majority of users who see disturbing fake warnings have some kind of untrustworthy software installed on their PCs, and it is very likely that you are one of them if you have found that it is not enough to close the web browser to get rid of Google Chrome Warning Alert Scam. Most probably, it is adware, a potentially unwanted program, or another suspicious application. Although its name is unknown, we are sure you will manage to delete it and get rid of Google Chrome Warning Alert Scam once and for all yourself.
Fake alerts like Google Chrome Warning Alert are usually shown to users seeking to scare them into dialing the telephone number they promote. In the case of Google Chrome Warning Alert Scam, this number is 0-800-090-3913. It is not the telephone number of the Google Chrome support, we can assure you, so we do not see any reason users should go to dial it. Additionally, users do not have “pornographic malware” these fake alerts warn them about active on their PCs, so the only thing they should focus on is the Google Chrome Warning Alert Scam removal. If you ignore the piece of advice we have for you and make a call, cyber criminals might try to convince you that you need special software to remove malware from your computer. It is, of course, not true, so do not even think about purchasing the promoted tool. Also, they might offer to delete malware for you remotely, but you should not grant them access to your PC on any account because they might steal the personal information stored on the system. Last but not least, they might try to obtain valuable information about you, but you should not tell them any personal details because this information might be shared with disreputable companies or people having bad intentions and, as a consequence, privacy-related problems might quickly emerge. As you can see, dialing the number fake alerts promote might only result in a bunch of problems, so refrain yourself from making a call even if you see these disturbing fake warnings periodically.
As you already know, malware is usually the major reason users encounter Google Chrome Warning Alert Scam. Most likely, it is an advertising-supported application, but other undesirable programs might disseminate fake alerts too. Undesirable software usually enters users’ PCs when they install an entire malicious software bundle on their systems, open an infections email attachment, or download bad software from third-party pages thinking that it is beneficial software, just to name a few. It is not always a piece of cake to prevent undesirable software from entering the system, so our advice for you would be to install a security application as soon as possible. You must install a new tool even if you already have one because, evidently, it is not as trustworthy as it seems to be if untrustworthy applications have managed to bypass it and entered your computer.
Technically, any untrustworthy application can be associated with Google Chrome Warning Alert Scam, so we cannot promise that it will be easy to detect and erase it. The quickest way to remove it is to scan the system with an automated malware remover – it will detect and erase all active infections after the first scan, but, of course, it does not mean that undesirable software cannot be erased manually as well. You first need to find it – start from checking Control Panel and removing suspicious software. Then, we recommend resetting all browsers to default settings.
