You cannot trust the information demonstrated via the misleading Facebook News pop-up. The pop-up we are discussing in this article does not show up on facebook.com, and it has not been released by the representatives of the social networking site. The name of Facebook has been employed only to trick computer users into thinking that they can trust the offers presented. Our malware researchers guarantee that this pop-up is unreliable and that you need to remove the advertisement-supported software that has been set up to release it. Do you know how to identify and delete Facebook News pop-up related programs? We do.

There are plenty of unreliable ad-supported programs that can unleash misleading pop-ups. Our malware researchers have previously reported Media-fire.org Pop-up, Cdn.adsrvmedia.net Pop-up, Easycomputerinstaller.info pop-ups, and a bunch of other unreliable pop-ups that have been discovered to open up security backdoors. In all cases, computer users had to remove adware to eliminate the unreliable ads, which is why it is not surprising that you will need to delete adware to get rid of Facebook News pop-ups as well.

Due to this, we identify Facebook News pop-up as a serious security threat!

Have you downloaded an extension called Facebook News, but no pop-ups have appeared yet? If you have downloaded this extension from the Google Web Store, we are sure that the misleading Facebook News pop-up will not show up at all, because the extension is not related to the scam. In fact, this application has been set up to route users to the so-called Unofficial Facebook Blog at sociotrope.com. Have you come across this article, in your attempts to remove Facebook News from your Chrome browser? Enter “chrome://apps/” into the address bar to open the Chrome App Launcher, right-click the undesirable app, and choose the removal option. As mentioned before, this app is not related to the Facebook News pop-up, so the pop-up will reappear even if you delete Facebook News.
