Secured Cleaner Club Virus

Secured Cleaner Club

In the event that your iOS device has been infected with Secured Cleaner Club, your browser has likely undergone some serious changes. Secured Cleaner Club will have probably changed the homepage and search engine of your Safari, Chrome or other browsing program.

The Secured Cleaner Club Virus will fill your calendar with fake notifications.

Secured Cleaner Club belongs to the category of so-called browser hijackers. These are very widespread pieces of software, but it wasn’t until recently that they also started targeting iOS users. There’s nothing to worry about, though, as Secured Cleaner Club is not some virus like a Trojan or ransomware that will harm your iPhone or iPad.

Yet despite not being a virus, the presence of such software on your device is still rather undesirable – and for a number of reasons at that. Of course, the most obvious of these are the frustration that is caused by the changes made to the browser’s settings. These may also include the addition of new browser elements like buttons and toolbars. But alongside those, users are normally always plagued by popups, banners and other forms of online advertising.

And speaking of advertising, since hijackers are often also tasked with the promotion of various websites, page redirects can become an everyday occurrence as well. So when you start being forwarded to various irrelevant web locations multiple times a day during browsing sessions, it’s more than understandable that you would want to remove Secured Cleaner Club as soon as possible.

And with the help of the below removal guide – you can do just that. This will enable you to also restore your original browser settings.

Note that after you do that, you will no longer get any events automatically added to your Calendar. Instead, theyd go to the email you have provided.

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:

  1. Select the Security icon and then click on “Block pop-up windows“. This should stop many types of pop-ups from appearing.
  1. 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.
