Appstoresmobiles.com is the extremely aggressive browser hijacker which has the malicious potential to endanger and damage your online experience, your data and your privacy in many ways. From “kidnapping” you onto its websites to stealing your most valuable information, Appstoresmobiles.com constitutes a solid threat which you need to deal with quickly and decisively.
It is by far not surprising software bundling is the most typical means of distributing Appstoresmobiles.com. Because of its legally debatable nature and the huge corporate interests involved, many computer security companies don’t directly identify browser hijacking programs as malicious. Furthermore, tempted by the considerable financial opportunity, popular freeware download portals such as Download.com, Brothersoft.com and even Sourceforge.net (once meant to only feature open source code) deliberately and massively foist offensive software by wrapping browser hijackers, adware and fake system optimizers with most of the programs they list. Absurdly, quite a few free antivirus programs don’t shy from bundling with browser hijackers either.
As users are not very likely to opt in for installing sometimes a whole series of additional software features while only looking for a video player, taken as an example, developers and freeware vendors cunningly design and re-design the customized installers used for setting up software bundles. Extra applications are presented as hard-to-visually-detect preselected bonus offers. Even if you choose the custom (or advanced) installation method – which we strictly and strongly recommend you – installation menus and confirmation buttons appear in a graphically and sequentially misleading manner. Therefore, each time you are deal with freeware, please use commonsense and great caution, taking the time to follow each step of the setup process and read through the diverse User Agreements.
