What is Please Report This Activity popup
The reason you are seeing Please Report This Activity popup advertisements is because of an ad-supported application infection. This is a classic tech-support scam that uses scare tactics to pressure users into calling certain numbers where they would be requested to provide remote access to their device. If an ad-supported software is indeed to blame, expect highly intrusive adverts. If you negligently install freeware, it is not shocking that an ad-supported program is installed. The advertisements are not going to endanger your device, as long as you don’t call the scammers. However, if you did call them, you could be cheated out of a lot of money, or more serious malware could be installed, and that might lead to stolen private information. Allowing some questionable tech-support to have remote access to your PC can turn out to be a very bad idea, so be cautious. You can be calm that this contamination indicated in the alert it’s not real, and that your device is safe. The warnings will only stop popping when you remove Please Report This Activity popup, so the sooner you do that, the better.
How does it behave
You most probably obtained the threat via free program packages. It comes adjoined as an optional item which is hidden in Default settings, and if you don’t see it, you can’t deselect it, which will permit it to install. Instead of Default, pick Advanced or Custom settings. You will see the extra items in Advanced, so just unmark the boxes. And if you think they might be of use, take into consideration that they did not intend to correctly disclose their installation, and you would have installed them unknowingly. If you wish to have to eliminate Please Report This Activity popup or similar for the last time, start be more attentive when it comes to what you install onto your device.
These types of bogus adverts aim to fool users into thinking that their computer has ran into some type of problem. Scammers will create all kinds schemes, such as malevolent programs, licensing or computer problems. Expect to see warnings about data being stolen because scare tactics work with less computer savvy users. Users would then be encouraged to dial the give number, which would supposedly connect them to technical support. No trustworthy company will ever ask you to call them, so remember that. So if supposedly Microsoft or Apple is requesting you to call them through some advertisements, know that it’s a scam. The con artists would request to access your OS remotely, they would then try to repair the fictional problem and charge you a lot of money. Tech-support scams are not a threat to regular computer users because they do not even resemble legitimate alerts but less computer experienced users may fall for them because they haven’t encountered one before. And we can see how some less computer savvy people could fall for them, as even if they do not believe the first warning, after they start popping up regularly, they may think that something is actually wrong. However, even if the warning appears fully real, you should still investigate using a reliable search engine. Most results will include comments from people advising to be careful of these scammers. Now that you are certain it is a scam, just close the warnings and deal with what is bringing them about. If the alerts are frequent, you will need to terminate Please Report This Activity popup ad-supported program to make them stop.
