Delete Windows Firewall Warning Alert Scam

About this threat

The reason Windows Firewall Warning Alert Scam adverts are showing up is because of an advertising-supported program infection. This is a typical tech-support scam that tries to scare users into calling certain numbers where they would be tricked into giving remote access to their OS. If an adware is indeed to blame, expect adverts to be highly invasive. An adware may commonly be installed accidentally, during free software installation. The warnings themselves will not harm your operating system, as long as you don’t fall for the scam. However, if you did call them, you could be cheated out of a lot of money, or they would install some kind of spying malicious software, and that could lead to stolen personal data. Keep in mind that you should not allow some shady tech-support to remotely access your machine, especially when their warning pop-ups in your browser. You can be calm that this threat indicated in the warning it isn’t real, and that your machine is safe. If you want to stop the intrusive pop-ups, all you need to do is eliminate Windows Firewall Warning Alert Scam.

Are the warnings real

Since adware installation hardly occurs knowingly, it usually is distributed via freeware. Freeware come together with certain items attached to them, and you will not see them if Default settings are what you pick during installation. Advanced or Custom mode are the settings you should choose. Advanced will make the offers visible, and all you have to do is uncheck the boxes. We recommend that you always unmark everything because if you weren’t correctly informed about their installation, they do not belong on your device. It’s crucial that you pay attention when installing applications because otherwise, you will have to eliminate Windows Firewall Warning Alert Scam or similar constantly.

A large amount of tech-support scams are the same, they all want to trick users into thinking that their machine is experiencing some type of issues. You’re possibly seeing a supposed damaging software, licensing or computer issues, because con artists are not very creative when it comes to schemes, and they are all essentially identical. Expect to see alerts about data loss or leaks because less computer savvy people would be more likely to fall for this scam. People would then be suggested to dial the give number, which would connect them to scammers pretending to be tech-support. Keep in mind that real software or security company will never ask users to call them. So if supposedly Microsoft or Apple is asking you to call them through some ads, know that it’s a scam. The con artists would attempt to solve a non-existent problem on your system, for which of course, you would be charged. The reason these tech-support scams still exist is because less-computer knowledgeable people still fall for them. Even if you do not pay attention to the first advertisement, it would show up again and again later on, so it isn’t difficult to imagine why some users would fall for these scams. If you are still in doubt about whether the alert is legitimate, you can always use a search engine to investigate, and that would resolve all the doubts. Likely, the very first result will confirm that it’s a scam. So do not be afraid of closing the warning and completely overlooking it while you deal with the issue. If the alerts are constantly showing up on your screen, you will need to find and delete Windows Firewall Warning Alert Scam adware.
