Terminate YOUR DEVICE HAS BEEN BLOCKED

About this infection

YOUR DEVICE HAS BEEN BLOCKED is a bogus warning falsely warning that your PC has a damaging program or that there is a serious issue. These tech-support scams are just aiming to fool you, nothing they claim is true, unless the problem is entirely unconnected. If an ad-supported application is indeed to blame, expect pretty invasive advertisements. If you carelessly install freeware, it isn’t shocking that an advertising-supported application is installed. In case you’re worried, the alerts are pretty harmless by themselves, and if you don’t call the con artists, no harm will be done. The reason calling them would be a mistake is because you would be tricked out of a lot of money, or some damaging program could be installed. Bear in mind that you should not permit some shady technicians to remotely access your operating system, particularly if you get their number through some advert that just popped up out of the blue in your browser. And when it comes to this alert, just ignore it, you’re device isn’t in jeopardy, neither is your data. The advertisements will only stop appearing if you erase YOUR DEVICE HAS BEEN BLOCKED, so you should do that as soon as possible.

Why are the alerts appearing

You must have recently installed a freeware, and through it you obtained the adware. If the application comes with extra items, you won’t see it if you opt for Default mode. Only in Advanced (Custom) mode will you be able to deselect everything so we recommend picking those settings. If any items become visible in Advanced, just unmark them, and they will not be authorized to install. We encourage that you always uncheck everything because if you weren’t correctly informed about their installation, they don’t belong on your system. It’s essential that you pay attention when installing programs because otherwise, you will end up having to eliminate YOUR DEVICE HAS BEEN BLOCKED or similar constantly.

The false advertisements plan to fool people into believing that their machine has came across some kind of issue. You are likely seeing a supposed malevolent software, licensing or computer problems, because con artists are not very original when it comes to schemes, and they are all basically identical. The alert will also caution you about data loss or leak of private data because these kinds of ploys are effective with less experienced users. A phone number would be flashing somewhere, the warning asking you to dial it, and if you did, you would be dealing with skilled con artists. Real companies will never request you to call them, and especially not via some random pop-up, so next time you encounter similar alerts, remember that. So if supposedly Microsoft or Apple is asking you to call them through some pop-ups, know that it’s a scam. The scammers would ask you to provide remote access to your system, they would then try to fix problems that don’t actually exist and charge you a lot of money. Tech-support scams are not dangerous to regular computer users because they don’t even resemble real warnings but less computer knowledgeable users may fall for them because they are not familiar with false tech-support. And we can see how some less computer knowledgeable users may fall for them, as even if they don’t fall for the first attempt, after they start popping up frequently, they may believe that it’s a legitimate alert. If you’re still in doubt, you could always use a search engine to look into it, and that would make everything clear. We can promise that the first couple of results will be of people complaining about con artists. So do not be afraid of ignoring the alerts while you get rid of what’s causing them. If it’s advertising-supported software that is causing them, you will have to locate and delete YOUR DEVICE HAS BEEN BLOCKED ad-supported software to make them stop.
