Do you know what Click-now-on.me is?
Click-now-on.me is an advertising network that, as research conducted by our experienced specialists has shown, bothers both Android and Windows users. Users do not open this domain consciously. They often get redirected to it from another domain or after clicking on an untrustworthy link, but, according to specialists, the majority of users who see Click-now-on.me advertisements on their screens have an advertising-supported application (adware) installed on their computers. These applications distribute commercials and their authors usually get some money for users’ clicks. Since they want users’ clicks, they also often collect information about them so that they could present them with relevant advertisements. You should not click on any advertisements even if you find them quite interesting and want to find more about the promoted product, service, or something else because you might be exposed to potential threats. Specifically speaking, you might be taken to dubious websites. This might happen even if you click on any of Click-now-on.me ads accidentally, so it would be best to remove them all from the screen today. If an ad-supported program is the one responsible for the appearance of these advertisements, you will make them gone only when you clean your system.
Click-now-on.me does not show advertisements itself. Instead, it redirects users to other pages through various other domains. In other words, users experience several redirections before they find a commercial advertisement displayed to them. These ads might have several different forms, e.g. pop-ups, banners, and coupons. Their content might depend on websites you visit, advertisements you tend to click, and other information, so you might find them quite appealing. Of course, it does not mean that you can click on the advertisement if you have found it interesting. No matter how the advertisement looks like, it might still be dangerous since it might cause a redirection straight to a dubious website, so we highly recommend staying away from all advertisements associated with the Click-now-on.me advertising domain. In the worst-case scenario, you might even end up on a page promoting malicious software. If it turns out that all these advertisements you see are directly associated with adware, you must delete it right away not only to stop those advertisements from appearing to you. Adware programs usually gather various details about users so that they could show them personalized advertisements. These details are mainly non-personally identifiable, but you should still not let untrustworthy software collect information about you because it might be disclosed to third parties and then used for various purposes without your knowledge.
It is not very likely that you have installed the adware program linked to the Click-now-on.me advertising server yourself. We believe that you have installed it together with other programs instead because these applications are often spread in software bundles. The adware program might start displaying advertisements only after some time, so it is not surprising that users find it hard to associate these annoying commercials they see with any specific program. Adware programs rarely stop distributing advertisements themselves, so we recommend that you take action to get rid of that program today. Applications showing commercials usually successfully enter computers unnoticed, but it does not mean that there is nothing users can do to prevent them from infiltrating their computers. Our security specialists say that users must, first, be more cautious, e.g. do not click on suspicious links, do not download applications from suspicious torrent websites, and, finally, do not go anywhere near suspicious emails and advertisements. If you do not think that you could protect your system from threats all alone, we recommend installing security software on the system as well. It will not allow programs you do not recognize as malware to infiltrate your computer without your permission.
If you see Click-now-on.me ads periodically and suspect that some kind of adware program might be responsible for this, check Control Panel and remove all unknown/suspicious programs. Then, reset your affected browsers to default settings. If this does not help, perform a scan with an antimalware scanner.
