Google Security Warning

What is Google Security Warning?

Fictitious security warnings have been on the rise recently, and one of them is the misleading Google Security Warning. Our research team has recently analyzed this bogus warning, and, unsurprisingly, it was discovered that it is 100% fictitious. It was created by schemers who want nothing more than to scam you. Unfortunately, in this case, it is hard to say exactly what would happen if you called the fictitious helpline number shown in the alert. The schemers answering your call could trick you into doing all kinds of things. For example, they could trick you into sharing personal information that might include full name, credit card information, home address, telephone number, and so on. Since the schemers should pose as “Windows” technicians, you might reveal information about yourself without even suspecting a scam. Unfortunately, that might not be the worst outcome. Please continue reading to learn how dangerous it is to communicate with schemers and if you need to delete Google Security Warning-related infections.

How does Google Security Warning work?

How were you introduced to the misleading Google Security Warning? If the alert was shown via a new browser window or a tab, there is a possibility that malware is involved. The same warning could be shown by redirecting you to the scam page when browsing the web. At this moment, an infection that would be responsible for introducing users to this scam cannot be identified. It is possible that it no longer exists. It is also possible that it has never existed at all. In this case, you are likely to be exposed to the Google Security Warning scam page via a misleading pop-up or link shown on a malicious website. In any case, you should install a legitimate malware scanner capable of detecting all kinds of threats. Even if Google Security Warning is not associated with malware that requires removal, you need to scan your PC to check for malicious cookies that might have been placed on your operating system to spy on you. Also, if you have doubts about the legitimacy of the alert and the infections represented via it, a legitimate malware scanner will give you a peace of mind. Needless to say, a reliable malware scanner will not find Zeus Virus, which you are warned about via the bogus alert.

Google Security Warning informs that your computer has been locked, but that is not the case. If you cannot close the browser, try using the Alt+Tab keys, or launch the Task Manager by tapping Ctrl+Shift+Esc and terminate the process of the browser that was corrupted. Another bogus thing that the alert introduces you to is a non-existent infection. As discussed previously, you can figure out if your operating system is corrupted by malware using a legitimate malware scanner. Another thing you can and should check is the number that is introduced to you, +1-844-843-5125. It is suggested that this number represents the Windows help desk, but, in reality, it represents schemers. If you do not want to be scammed, you should NOT call this number. If you have already done this, think if you have disclosed personal information or let in malware. In the case of the latter, you should delete this malware at once.

How to delete Google Security Warning

If malware exists, you need to delete it as soon as possible. If it does not, you should be able to remove Google Security Warning by closing the browser page this bogus alert is shown on.
