Flash Player Premium Sms is an adware server that may redirect users to a suspicious website offering to install a fake Adobe Flash Player. In fact, what the user might receive could be a completely different software called Update Checker. We do not know what kind of updates it is supposed to look for, but if you installed it, we would not advise waiting until it starts doing anything. In other words, if you do not like putting your system or your privacy at risk, it is advisable to get rid of Flash Player Premium Sms as fast as possible. If you continue reading our article, you can learn more about this adware server, and if you slide a little bit below the text, you should find our recommended deletion steps. They can tell what you could do to eliminate this threat manually.
Flash Player Premium Sms is supposed to redirect users to a website called updateflash.club. If you end up on this site, you should see a statement displayed in substantial black letters saying: “Adobe Flash Player, An essential complement to your computer.” Obviously, instead of “complement,” it should say “component,” and if you want to be able to distinguish adware servers from legitimate sites, you should always read given information carefully and look for grammar mistakes or other suspicious details. Below the described statement the user might see an orange Download button and a sentence saying “Price 5.79 EUR for code” below it. Then users should notice a short text in a smaller font; mainly, it again tries to explain why it is essential to have Adobe Flash Player. The most suspicious part in it is the end of the statement: it says “It is compatible with all Web browsers and is installed automatically.” This part looks suspicious because the website provides a Download button. If it is supposed to be installed why are you asked to install it yourself?
Moreover, after licking the download button, the user could be introduced to a setup wizard. It looks rather authentic as it displays Adobe Plash Payer’s logos, but only until you realize it asks you to send an SMS message to a particular telephone number. We assume this code will cost the earlier mentioned 5.79 euros. The truth is the original Adobe Flash Player is supposed to be free of charge and to users who know it; such requests should immediately signal this might be a scam. Our specialists say after the installation the user is supposed to receive a tool called Update Checker. It is possible Flash Player Premium Sms could install Adobe Flash Player too, but keep it in mind it might be compromised and may put your system at risk. Consequently, we advise users not to click the download button or stop the installation process at once instead of requesting the so-called activation code. However, if it is too late for it, the best you can do is remove the suspicious tool installed.
The deletion instructions you can find a little bit below this text will tell how to reset the browser as it may help in stopping Flash Player Premium Sms from reappearing again. Nevertheless, to make sure the adware server is gone and there are no other threats on the system you could scan the computer with a reliable security tool too.
