Do you know what Videostripe Pop-up Ads are?
If your computer is infected with adware programs, your web surfing could be disrupted by Videostripe Pop-up Ads. These promotional advertisements are the product of an aggressive marketing technique by the authors of the Videostripe platform. This service provider claims to offer you the high-quality streaming of premium movies, but our researchers say that the real selection of movies is rather poor. Yet, we cannot say anything bad about this platform; at least, nothing that would make it a dangerous threat. However, even if you decide to go for a trial period and subscribe for the Videostripe service, we advise you to remove Videostripe Pop-up Ads from your computer along with any other potentially risky programs.
You can find the official site of this legitimate service at videostripe.com. The website looks all fine and professional. In fact, it looks very similar to other identical platforms, including silverscreen.cc and vodmatic.com. You can only try this service for 7 days for free and if you subscribe. The subscription process itself is a bit misleading and we do not consider it totally benign. First, you are only asked to enter your e-mail address and a password, and you are also led to believe that this will only take 5 second. However, once you fill out these fields, a bigger form appears suddenly that requires you to provide all your credit card details. Although it is mentioned in a notification that you will be charged 39.99 EUR monthly if you do not cancel your subscription, your eyes will most likely be drawn to the “FREE 7-day Trial Membership” row where it says “FREE 0.00 €” in red characters. This is a simple trick to try to lead your eyes so that you may overlook the other part about the price you will be charged after the 7 days are over. Of course, what could we say when the information is actually there? So it is up to you really whether you are cautious enough to read all there is.
We understand that this may not be enough for you to want to cancel your subscription and it is not even our goal to be frank. Our main concern is the annoying advertisements that could ruin your web surfing experience. These ads can come from adware applications that are residing on your system. They could be there thanks to a previous malicious attack, for example. When the number of third-party ads increase while you are browsing, you should suspect the presence of an adware app on your computer. It is quite easy to infect your PC with such a threat when you download free software from shady freeware or torrent pages. But it is also possible to end up with a bundle filled with all kinds of malware infections and potentially unwanted programs when you click on the wrong third-party ad or link. Such content can be displayed on your screen by suspicious websites (e.g., gaming, gambling, and file-sharing pages) or by adware programs already hiding on your PC. In any case, no matter how this and other malware threats found their way to your system, we recommend that you delete Videostripe Pop-up Ads by detecting the adware responsible and eliminating it along with all other possibly risky programs.Videostripe Pop-up Ads screenshot

Since these ads usually come from adware programs that can also promote unreliable third parties, it is possible that you could be introduced to harmful third-party content.
