The main aim of these false adverts is to deceive users into dialing supposed tech-support who would first ask for remote access to your computer, and then install overpriced, possibly useless software.

Are the warnings legitimate

You probably got the threat through free program packages. You will normally encounter these types of items as extra offers, and while they are optional, many users end up installing them as they do not see them. Advanced or Custom settings are the settings you should choose. If any offers become visible in Advanced, just unmark them, and they will not be permitted to install. And while those items might not necessarily bring about harm, if they did not inform you about their installation properly, they shouldn’t be permitted to install. If you want to have to remove Fb.com-directory.co or similar for the last time, start paying attention to how you install applications, and where you get them from.

The fake warnings intend to fool users into thinking that their OS has ran into some kind of issue. You’re likely seeing a supposed malware, licensing or system issues, because con artists are not very original when it comes to schemes, and they’re all basically identical. It’s also common for the alert to warn you about data loss or leaks since users will panic and would be more likely to fall for the scam. According to the advert, so as to solve the supposed problems and prevent data loss, you must dial the given number, where con artists would tinker with your device and charge you loads of money for it. Take into consideration that real software or security company would never ask users to call them. So if you see such advertisements, claiming to come from Apple or Microsoft, know that it is a scam. These con artists would try to convince you that there is something seriously wrong with your computer, and that they are the only ones who can solve the issue, which of course, would cost you a lot. A somewhat big amount of users fall for these scams since they might be less knowledgeable when it comes to computers, which is why tech-support scams still exist. Even if you dismiss the first pop-up, it would appear over and over again later on, so it is not difficult to see why some people would fall for these scams. However, even if the warning seems completely legitimate, you should still investigate using a trustworthy search engine. We can assure that the first couple of results will be of people talking about con artists. Now that you’re certain it is a scam, just close the alert and deal with what’s causing them. If the alerts are appearing frequently, you will need to find and eliminate Fb.com-directory.co adware.
