Are the warnings real

Most commonly, advertising-supported software are obtained via free program packages. A lot of freeware come together with certain offers attached to them, and by picking Default settings, you are authorizing them to install. We encourage choosing Advanced (Custom) settings since otherwise, the added offers will not become visible. You will see the extra offers in Advanced, so just uncheck the boxes.

The fake ads aim to fool users into thinking that there are serious issues with their system. You’re probably seeing a supposed malware, licensing or computer problems, because con artists are not very creative when it comes to schemes, and they are all essentially identical. Expect to see alerts about data being stolen since less computer savvy users would be more likely to fall for this scam. The pop-up would also be requiring you to call the number provided, and if you did, you would be connected to skilled con artists. Legitimate companies won’t request you to call them, and especially not via some random pop-up, so remember that the next time you run into similar alerts. So if you get an advert from Apple, Microsoft, or some other technology company, and are required to call them, you are being tricked. If you did call the number, con artists would declare that the problem has to be dealt with immediately but that would cost you a lot of money. Tech-support scams are not very convincing but because less-computer knowledgeable users aren’t aware of them, they might become victims. Even if you don’t pay attention to the first pop-up, it would pop-up again and again later on, so users falling for such a scam isn’t difficult to imagine. However, if you simply use a trustworthy search engine to look into it, everything would become clear instantly. We can promise that the first results will be of users complaining about con artists.
