Pirate Chick VPN PUP – How to remove?

What is Pirate Chick VPN PUP

The most probable reason you are seeing Pirate Chick VPN PUP advertisements is because of an adware infection. It is a scam that will possibly attempt to convince you to call Tech support so that con artists can get remote access to your machine and set up suspicious, expensive applications. If an advertising-supported program is indeed to blame, expect ads to be highly invasive. An adware may commonly be found together with free applications, and if it goes unnoticed, it will be authorized to install. The adverts are not dangerous, and as long as you do not fall for the scam, you’ll be fine. If you did call them, you would have to deal with professional scammers who would ask for authorization to remotely connect to your PC, do some weird fix, and then charge money, essentially for nothing. Bear in mind that you should not authorize some suspicious technicians to remotely access your OS, especially if you get their number via some advert that just popped up suddenly in your browser. And if you’re still concerned about the pop-up you are getting, it is false, and your computer is safe. The adverts will only stop popping when you remove Pirate Chick VPN PUP, so the sooner you do that, the better.

Are the warnings legitimate

An adware could generally be found bundled together with free programs. You will normally run into these kinds of offers as additional offers, and while they are not compulsory, a lot of users end up installing them as they do not notice them. In order to be able to unmark the offers, opt for Advanced or Custom mode. Advanced will show you the items, and all you have to do is deselect the boxes. We suggest that you always deselect everything because if you were not correctly informed about their installation, they don’t belong on your computer. Pay close attention to what type of programs are permitted to install onto the OS, and how you do it, since otherwise, you will regularly be stuck having to uninstall Pirate Chick VPN PUP or similar.

These kinds of bogus warnings aim to fool users into thinking that their OS has ran into some kind of issue. You are probably seeing a alleged malware, licensing or system issues, because con artists aren’t very creative when it comes to scenarios, and they are all basically the same. Since the possibility of information loss seems quite terrifying, the alert will also warn you about possible data loss or leak. People would then be suggested to dial the give number, which would allegedly connect them to technical support. No trustworthy company will ever ask you to call them, so keep that in mind. So if you get an ad from Apple, Microsoft, or some other technology company, and are asked to call them, you’re being fooled. If you did call the number, scammers would declare that the issue must be dealt with right away but that would cost you a lot of money. While to more computer experienced people tech-support scams can seem quite transparent, less computer savvy people might believe them, which is why those scams still exist. And it is not difficult to see how some less computer savvy people may believe the claims, as even if they do not believe the first warning, after they start appearing regularly, they might think that something is actually wrong. If you are still in doubt, you can always use a search engine to look into it, and that would clear up all the doubts. Most results will contain comments from people warning to be careful of these con artists. So don’t be afraid of ignoring the warnings while you get rid of what is causing them.
