How to defend your system from Youtubeconverter.io

You can easily defend the system against Youtubeconverter.io, but it requires some effort. We know a few tips suitable for everyone, which may assist in making your OS secure and fast. The single problem is that you'll need to forget about many of your browsing customs, such as downloading useless tools, clicking through every link you like, installing pirated tools, not using a valid antivirus, etc. The crucial tip is to overlook the process of installation of every tool. Let’s see how it goes:

  • During the installation of any program, there’s a moment when the installer suggests you to choose some attached pieces, according to your tasks. That’s when you install a good tool. If you’re installing a dubious tool, you’ll get a suggestion to install a bunch of tools which aren't connected to the one that you wanted, and in most cases they aren't good anyway.
  • Such a trap is quite simple to avoid – use a not recommended manner, and choose only the programs you need. If there’s no way to de-select the fields with pointless tools – you should rethink your decision about downloading anything at all.
  • You should realize when it happens, familiarize with a rooster of proposed tools, and pick only the helpful ones. Youtubeconverter.io uses the words “safe installation” to trick you into allowing more perilous tools. Generally speaking, the suggested installation way leads you to getting lots of unwanted programs.

How Youtubeconverter.io Infects The System

Youtubeconverter.io is simultaneously completely irritative, perilous, time-consuming and useless. Why would any operator try to download such a program? There's just one apparent option – since he's sure that he downloads something helpful. Even with no beneficial features, Youtubeconverter.io manages its aims thanks to having a skillful team of swindlers, versed in psychological tricks, and they are well aware of the methods to force a victim do what they want. The only technique for Youtubeconverter.io to infect a user’s system consists of making him believe that he installs something useful. Let's see how they do it:

  • When adware is in the OS – there’s nothing preventing it from messing with user's workstation. It begins with showing advertisement links everywhere, and some of them get clicked since you try to hide them.
  • It all boils down to two scenarios when the package is into the OS. The customer either doesn't notice a thing and clicks through all windows to install a lot of adware or sees an unpleasant fact that he's only able to install the entire bundle of pointless software. Usually, a customer ends up with Youtubeconverter.io installed. The easiest way to escape this is to read all information that’s written in the dialogue windows popping up while you're installing any cracked utility.
  • Fraudsters make customers believe that they're willingly downloading a harmful tool. They secure it by placing Youtubeconverter.io in an installer with 2-3 other utilities, of which only one is comparatively good. In most cases, it's a cracked version of a useful utility. You can simply get around it by ensuring that you won't download only the popular utilities.

The aforementioned manner of infection is also known as bundled installation, and it is the most usual among Internet criminals all over the world. They make you allow a hazardous program in on your own accord, which makes them blameless. This manner relieves swindlers from any obligations towards a customer, as he downloaded adware of his own free will, and accepted its user agreement.
