Typically, Rapid 3.0 notifications refer to so-called ransomware, computer threat that appears in the system with the aim to lock particular files and require money revenue. Ransomware often asks to pay in BitCoins which are really expensive. It goes without saying that it is better to prevent the threat than find a solution.

When Rapid 3.0 blocks your OS, it does it for the money revenue. If you agree to pay, it will never stop alerting you and blocking the system. That is why we recommend avoiding any interaction with the alarming messages. It is better to scan the system as fast as possible and eliminate the threat before it steals your credit card information and gets access to your money.
