BlockAndSurf Removal Guide
BlockAndSurf, also spelled Block-N-Surf, is a browser extension that is classified as an ad-supported application or adware for short. It was created by Revizer Technology Ltd. and is promoted as a tool that will help you avoid unwanted online content.
The program is mostly targeted at parents who want to protect their children from viewing adult content websites. Unfortunately, the software also has its drawbacks. It displays third party advertisements in your browsers regardless of which page you open. If you want to get rid of of these ads, you will have to remove BlockAndSurf from your computer.
How does BlockAndSurf work?
BlockAndSurf has an official website, block-n-surf.com, where you can download it. On this page you will also find information about the program and its use. Although the provided download link is working, the adware is also known to be distributed via third party freeware. It comes bundled with free software that you can download from sites like filewin.com, softpedia.com, cnet.com and similar. You need to pay extra attention to the installation process of these programs as they are often accompanied by adware or browser hijackers. Do not agree to the additional offers presented to you in the installation wizard if you do not wish to get stuck with potentially unwanted applications again.
BlockAndSurf is similar to other programs of this type. It enters your computer and starts displaying various advertisements on your screen. The reason it does that is because by exposing you to these ads, the developers of the adware make profit. Some commercials may even be based on your Internet browsing history. We urge you to be cautious when it comes to the adverts as there is no way to know if they are reliable. Some of them certainly are not. Clicking on a fake ad could result in malware infection, data loss and even financial consequences. We suggest that you delete BlockAndSurf and use a more reliable tool to manage web content.
How to uninstall BlockAndSurf?
You can terminate BlockAndSurf manually or automatically. If you decide to go with manual removal, you will have to eliminate BlockAndSurf from your system and your browsers. Instructions below can help you with both of these tasks. It is possible that once you uninstall BlockAndSurf via Control Panel, it will also be removed from browser extensions, however, it never hurts to be sure. Alternatively, you can use an anti-malware utility and clean your computer from all possible threats.
