About these scam pop-ups

Apple “Warning Virus Detected” virus refers to scam pop-ups that try to get users to call bogus tech-support. Those kinds of pop-ups appear randomly and inform users that their devices are infected with some kind of virus, and that immediate action if required. Which basically means they want you to call their ‘tech-support’. Let’s get one thing clear, any kind of pop-up you get in your browser about viruses on your computer is always a scam. Apple Warning Virus Detected virus

Always. Not buts or ifs about it. You see such pop-up, you ignore it. Do not install the offered ‘security software’ and do not call the provided numbers. If you did, you would be connected to professional scammers who would try their best to convince you that your device is in serious danger and you need to buy some kind of security software. The software would be expensive, not to mention useless, seeing as your computer is fine.

If you get one such pop-up, close it and clear your history/cache. If they are constantly appearing, even after you close them numerous times, you could be dealing with adware. It’s the kind of infection that generates ads to display on your screen, thus making ad revenue. If that was the case, you would need to delete Apple “Warning Virus Detected” virus adware.

What is causing the pop-ups?

If you’ve encountered such a pop-up once, it’s probably because you were visiting some questionable website. Free streaming, torrent, adult-entertainment, betting websites can trigger those fake ‘tech-support’ pop-ups to appear, so you can expect them when visiting them. If, however, you are seeing them often, even when you are nowhere near dubious sites, adware may be to blame. You could have picked up adware when installing a free program. Many free software come together with additional offers, such as browser hijackers and adware. People don’t notice them because they don’t pay attention to how they install programs. If you want to prevent these kinds of infections, you need to be attentive. Make sure you read the information provided, and always choose Advanced or Custom settings. If you choose Default (Quick or Basic), you won’t see the attached items, and they will be allowed to install. Advanced, on the other hand, make everything attached visible, and you are allowed to deselect it. After you uncheck all the boxes, you can continue installing the program.

Are they legitimate?

No. They never are. Whatever a pop-up in your browser is warning you about, whether it’s a virus, suspicious connection, invalid product key, etc., it’s always a scam. No question about it. Your browser or a website is not capable of telling you those things. Those pop-ups ask that you call tech-support, usually either for Windows or Apple, and those companies will never ask you to call them. Ever. So whenever you see a ‘tech-support’ number on an alert in your browser, know that it’s a scam.

If you did dial the number, you would be connected to scammers. They would do their best to convince you that there is a virus on your system, and that they need to remotely connect to your computer in order to solve the problem for you. If you allow them access, they would pretend to do some fixing, maybe install some kind of program, and then charge you a couple of hundred of dollars, which would be a waste of money, seeing as there is nothing wrong with your computer. And the scammers could install malware, or steal your personal information.
