Notice Cellphone Club
Notice Cellphone Club is a browser hijacking program that targets the browsers on Apple iOS devices in particular. Namely, Notice Cellphone Club can integrate with your Chrome, Safari or whatever other browsing program you may be using on your iPad, iPhone or iPod.
To be specific, software of this type infiltrates your browser with the aim of turning it into a platform for displaying various online ads directly on your screen. Therefore, the presence of a browser hijacker like Notice Cellphone Club is typically accompanied by numerous banners, box messages, popups, etc. In addition, hijackers like this also trigger page redirects and can uproot your traffic and forward it to some sponsored web location.
The only way you will be able to get rid of all these effects is if you remove the program that is responsible for them. Below is a detailed removal guide for Notice Cellphone Club which can help you take care of this process.
Is Notice Cellphone Club virus dangerous?
Many users often panic when they discover that their device has been invaded by a browser hijacker like Notice Cellphone Club. However, the situation isn’t as severe as it may appear and Notice Cellphone Club doesn’t have any harmful capacities, unlike real viruses and malware.
However, as a result of its activities, your device may become more vulnerable to external threats such as Trojans, ransomware and other viruses. This is why we generally don’t recommend interacting with any of the content that this hijacker may push on you, and instead simply remove it from your system to avoid exposing your iOS device to any danger.
Notice Cellphone Club Virus Removal
If you have an iPhone virus, continue with the guide below.
If you have an Android virus, please use our Android Malware Removal guide.
If you have a Mac virus, please use our How to remove Ads on Mac guide.
If you have a Windows virus, please use our Windows Virus Removal guide.
First you need to close all pop-ups that are currently open.
- If the pop-up has a checkbox named “Don’t show more alerts from this webpage” click on the checkbox before closing the Ad.
- If a Block Alerts button happens to appear after you shut down a pop-up on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch tab that button to stop receiving alerts from the same page.
In case that a pop-up fails to close after performing the above operations:
- On your Mac you should make your Safari browser close forcibly by pressing Command-Option-Esc. Select Safari from the list of Apps and force close it. After you force close it you need to restart Safari, but please hold the shift button while it starts. This will prevent any pesky Ads from opening automatically.
- On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch you can do the same by pressing the home button twice in a quick succession. You’ll then see a preview of all apps that have been recently used. Swipe left to find Safari and then swipe up on the app’s preview to close it forcibly In order to prevent Safari from opening unwanted windows on startup go to Settings->Safari and Clear History, as well as Website Data. This will also clear your browser history and cookies so keep that in mind and export them if you want to keep them.
Choose Preferences from the Safari menu. Then do the following:
- Select the Security icon and then click on “Block pop-up windows“. This should stop many types of pop-ups from appearing.
- Next check on your homepage and the settings for the search engines. Adware likes messing with those. We can not provide more specific instructions for this, as you may be using many different browsers.
- Select the General icon and look at the Homepage field. It should either be empty or filled with the address of the Homepage you want.
- Follow up on the Search icon. Again it should be either the default search engine or any that you have set for yourself. Note that in some versions of Safari these settings are found in the General panel/
Open Safari and click on the Extensions button. Note that Adware use extensions almost exclusively to inject the pop-up Ads into your browser. Any extension on this list that you do not remember installing yourself is likely planted there by the Adware. Remove ALL extensions you are unfamiliar with.
