About this infection

Your browser has been blocked is a bogus alert claiming that your machine has been infected with damaging software or encountered a serious issue. These scam warnings will attempt to to make you call Tech support so that con artists could sell you pointless tools or get access to your OS remotely. If an advertising-supported application is behind these ads, they will be highly intrusive, appear over and over again, no matter how many times you close them. An ad-supported application is often attached to freeware, and if it isn’t unmarked, it will install alongside the application. You don’t need to worry about the warnings harming your machine, and as long as you do not call the supposed tech support, you will be fine. The reason calling them is not a good idea is because they would try to scam you out of a lot of money, or some malware would be installed. Authorizing some dubious tech-support remote access to your OS might turn out to be a very bad idea, so be careful. And if you are still worried about the advert you are getting, it’s false, and your PC is secure. If you want the warnings to no longer appear, all you need to do is erase  Your browser has been blocked.

How does it behave

The most possible way you got the infection is through free application packages. It arrives attached as an optional offer which Default mode do not show, and you can not deselect it if you can’t see it, which is practically like providing the adjoined items the authorization to install. Instead of Default, you should use Advanced (Custom) settings. Advanced will make the offers visible, and you just need to unmark them. And while those items might not necessarily cause harm, if you weren’t properly informed about their installation, they should not be allowed to install. It is important that you pay attention when installing software because otherwise, you will end up having to delete Your browser has been blocked or similar regularly.

All of these kinds of alerts are identical, they all want users to believe that their device has ran into a problem. You’re probably seeing a alleged malware, licensing or computer issues, because con artists are not very original when it comes to schemes, and they’re all basically the same. It is also not uncommon for the alert to warn you about data loss or leaks because this makes users panic. People would then be recommended to call tech-support using the given number, where they would be scammed. No legitimate company will ever ask you to call them, so remember that. So if supposedly Microsoft or Apple is requesting you to call them via some warnings, know that it’s not legitimate. The scammers would remotely connect to your system, pretend to find some issue, very quickly explain it to you and suggest a way to fix everything, for which you would have to pay a lot of money. A fairly large number of users fall for these scams because they may be somewhat elaborate, which is why tech-support scams still exist. And we can see how some less computer knowledgeable users could fall for them, because even if they do not fall for the first attempt, after they start showing up over and over again, they might think that it’s a trustworthy warning. However, even if the warning looks completely legitimate, you should still investigate using a reliable search engine. Most results will include comments from victims about being scammed. Now that it’s been confirmed to be a scam, just close the warnings and deal with what is causing them. If you regularly get these alerts, you just have to delete Your browser has been blocked advertising-supported program to make them stop.
