What is AdBlock 360

AdBlock 360 is the name of a browser extension categorized as adware. This is due to its fake ad-blocking capabilities. Developers claim this browser extension will help you establish a better surfing experience by removing unwanted ads, banners, pop-ups, and other types of intrusive content. Unfortunately, AdBlock 360 does completely the opposite. It takes over browser settings to promote its own advertisements, surveys, coupons, pop-ups, and banners leading to suspicious pages. Adware uses this scheme to generate profits on collected visits. It is also possible that AdBlock 360 is able to track and therefore gather browsing data for future abuse. Data like IP-addresses, passwords and geolocation may leak to fraudulent servers and become useful for third-party figures. Thus, we highly advise you to not trust AdBlock 360’s activity and remove it as soon as possible. Follow our guide below to do it correctly and without traces.

How AdBlock 360 infected your computer

Users can be tricked into installing adware through banners or pop-up windows claiming the extension is useful. While it may sound helpful indeed, its real capacity to deliver practical value lies far off the actual expectations. Thus, it is recommended to avoid all sorts of ads even if they seem to be trustworthy. “Bundling” is also a method exploited to deliver unwanted apps without the consent of users. Add-ons like AdBlock 360 can be offered as a “useful” addition to installing some other program. Such a technique is often encountered in repacks where developers incorporate third-party software in order to monetize their business. The risk group consists of pirated, cracked, and freeware software promoted on unofficial pages for free. Always check “Advanced”, “Custom”, or similar sections for various sponsored offers.
