The Apple Rewards Event notification might be shown to you via a random page or represented via a pop-up. Regardless of how it is introduced to you, do not click it. The best thing you can do is close the page/pop-up representing it and then immediately scan your operating system. Hopefully, no threats are found, but since there is a possibility that something has injected the scam alert, you cannot skip the scan. If the scanner declares that your system is clean, the only thing left for you to do is reset your browser and clear the browsing data, which you can do using the removal instructions shown below. We suggest doing that because you want to delete Apple Rewards Event scam components, such as web cookies and other data-tracking technologies that could be used to track you. Want to learn more?

According to our research team, the misleading Apple Rewards Event scam is very similar to the Fake Amazon Gift Card fake alert and You Have Won A Google Gift fake alert, both of which introduced users to fictitious gift cards to either make them visit questionable websites or disclose personal information. That is how the Apple Rewards Event alert works as well. When it shows up on your screen, it pushes you to believe that you were contacted by Apple, which, of course, you were not. If you do not use Apple, you should recognize the scam right away because it is meant to reward allegedly “loyal” users. If you do use Apple, a glance at the URL of the scam page should be enough to help you realize that the notification is not authentic. In general, companies that produce popular products do not just give them away for free to random users using prize giveaways and surveys, which is why you should never fall for such scams.
Have you interacted with the Apple Rewards Event scam already? If you have, you might have been tricked into disclosing your full name, email address, telephone number, and other personal details. Even if the information you have shared cannot be used to steal your identity or hijack your virtual accounts, you need to be cautious. Be careful about scam text messages and spam in your inbox that could be used to infiltrate malware. Have you visited any websites or downloaded any unfamiliar files or software when interacting with the Apple Rewards Event message? If you have, you need to be cautious about malware. Of course, if it existed, the malware scanner would have caught it. If you have not yet scanned your system, do it as soon as possible. And what should you do if you face malicious threats that require removal? If that happens, use the guides available on our site to erase all of them manually, or install an anti-malware program that would delete everything malicious automatically.
Hopefully, malware does not exist, and it is not responsible for exposing you to the Apple Rewards Event scam. If this is where the scam has come from, beware of other scams and misleading advertisements that could be shown to you. It might be possible for you to delete malware manually, but our recommendation is to install anti-malware software because it is built to automatically erase all malicious threats, as well as to keep them away in the future. Needless to say, you will not be completely safe if you erase all infections but do not ensure reliable protection. Whatever happens, we strongly advise resetting the browser and erasing browsing data to remove Apple Rewards Event completely. This is how you will get rid of any data-tracking technologies that might have been employed to spy on you.
