We want to inform you about a newly found adware server that has been dubbed Movie2k Ads as it promotes Movie2k.io, a paid movie streaming platform that is regarded as highly unreliable. Movie2k Ads can get onto your PC along with a malicious browser extension that will open it on a separate pop-up window, so you ought to remove it if that is the case. It is also possible that certain shady websites promote it as well. Such websites can open a pop-up window or redirect you to it as a result of clicking a random link. In short, this adware server is next to useless and is definitely going to annoy you and hinder your browsing experience. For more information on this infection, please read this short description.

Movie2k Ads was set up by an unknown developer, so there is no reliable information on its real origins. We know that Movie2k.io is similar to Movie4.is and Movie4.to, so it is likely that all three of these sites were set up by the same developer. However, unlike its counterparts, Movie2k.io does not allow you to watch movies until you register an account which requires your credit card information, among other information. As mentioned in the introduction, Movie2k Ads can be distributed with malicious browser extensions that can be bundled with third-party software. These software bundles can inject the unknown browser extensions that feature Movie2k Ads secretly, and you may not have the opportunity to deselect their installation. Another possible way to encounter this adware server is by visiting websites that promote it. It will not end up on your PC, but if you visit Movie2k Ads-promoting websites often enough, then you may be inclined to look into the services that it offers.

Movie2k Ads is set to promote Movie2k.io which is an online movie streaming platform. While you may be allowed to watch some of the movies on this platform for free, this website is bound to redirect you to a certain other website that will ask you to register an account in order to watch them. The registration will require you to provide your email address and create a password. We have also found that this site will require you to provide it with credit card information and it may charge you for some of its services that can be unreliable. It is also worth mentioning that Movie2k.io is bound to open pop-up windows with promoted websites that will obstruct your browsing experience. Testing has shown that this site can promote shady online surveys, credit loans, gambling websites, and sites featuring adult content. In short, Movie2k Ads is bound to subject you to the most harmful of content possible to find online. Therefore, we do not recommend visiting Movie2k.io.

As you can see, Movie2k Ads is a mere adware server bound to subject you to various harmful and outright malicious content. It is rather disturbing that the ads are presented via an online movie streaming website that can attract much web traffic. Apart from that, Movie2k.io may require you to register an account and provide your credit card information which you should not do for security reasons. We recommend that you remove Movie2k Ads, provided that it is loaded by a browser extension or stop visiting sites that redirect you to it. Please see the guide below on how to get rid of an unwanted browser extension.
