Upon clicking on the Survey 2014 pop-up, you are invited to take part in a survey and offered a reward, which may be a tablet, a smart phone or some other device. The same website can be accessed from different locations, so the content and the language of the survey differ in order to attract as many computer users as possible. For example, you may be asked to provide your opinion about YouTube advertisements or the quality of the browsers that you use. Here is an excerpt of one of the survey accessed through Mozilla Firefox:
Introducing the lasted and fastest version of Firefox
Dear Perth users: We want your opinion of the latest version of Facebook and Microsoft Windows, we have prepared a short survey to rate your experience!
Please take 30 seconds of your time and to say “thank you” you will offer you a chance to win $1000 Coles, Woolworths, or IGA shopping voucher.
After completing the questionnaire, you are required to send a short text message, fill in personal details or buy some product in order to enter the sweepstake. If you are eager to win the promised reward, first make sure that the information that you provide is going to be kept safely. Very often, personal information may be shared with third parties to provide you with spam emails or mobile advertising text messages. Moreover, if you are asked to send a costly SMS text message, make sure that is not covered by any subscription.
It is highly advisable to remove the program that generates all those annoying pop-ups, coupons and other advertisements. Bear in mind that it is not enough to close, for example, the Survey 2014 pop-up or coupon because the application still remains within the system. In order to stop all the advertisements, you should take more serious measures.
