Bongacams virus Removal
What is Bongacams virus
Bongacams virus refers to an adware infection that redirects users to the adult site Bongacams.com. Because of the redirects and other questionable behaviour, users refer to this infection as Bongacams virus, even though that is not the correct classification. It’s adware that’s causing the redirects to the site, and adware is not a virus. It’s a relatively minor infection that shows ads and causes redirects but does not directly harm the computer. By itself, it’s more of an annoyance than anything.
If you start getting random redirects to Bongacams, you will need to check your computer for adware. It could have entered your computer along with a free program you installed. Attaching additional offers (adware, browser hijackers and potentially unwanted programs) to free programs is called software bundling, and it’s a popular method among unwanted program developers. We will explain this and how to avoid unwanted installations in the following section of the report.
Until you remove Bongacams virus, you shouldn’t interact with any advertisements that you encounter. Adware can generate potentially dangerous ads, and you have no way of knowing where you’ll end up if you click. So to be on the safe side, do not click on any ads.
What is causing you to get redirected to Bongacams
Your browser will not randomly redirect you to a pornography site for no reason. The reason you’re redirected to Bongacams is likely because your computer has adware installed. It’s not a serious infection, more of a pest than anything. However, its redirects are annoying. It installs without users noticing, via free software bundles. Essentially, minor infections like adware, browser hijackers and PUPs often come attached to free software as extra offers. Those offers are preselected to install alongside the program without requiring your explicit permission. It’s a rather sneaky installation method, which is why it’s popular with unwanted program developers.
If you want to install free programs without any additional offers, you need to pay attention to the process. During installation, when given the option, opt for Advanced (Custom) settings instead of Default. Advanced settings will make all added offers visible and you will be able to deselect all of them. Literally all you need to do is uncheck the boxes of those offers. You can then continue installing the program.
Since most free programs will come with these attached offers, you always need to pay attention. Otherwise, your computer will be filled with junk programs.
Is Bongacams virus dangerous
Bongacams is a legitimate adult website that hosts pornographic content. Like most legitimate adult sites, it may host a few potentially dangerous ads, but otherwise it’s safe to visit. However, if you are redirected to it without permission, that is a problem. Precisely because of this behaviour do users refer this adware as a Bongacams virus.
The adware can attach itself to all popular browsers like Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, and start showing you ads and causing redirects. If this starts happening, you should avoid interacting with all ads and close windows if redirected. Some of the ads you are shown could be advertising questionable programs or promoting scams. In addition to being redirected to Bongacams.com, you could also end up on other sites. Do not interact with them, especially if they suggest you download a program or promote contests. And even if the redirects are harmless, there is no reason to put up with this. After all, your browsing is being interrupted for no reason.
One more thing you should know about adware is that it collects information about users and their activities. It tracks what users search for, what sites they visit, what content they engage with, their location, etc. This information can be shared with third-parties as well.

Once the adware is no longer present on the computer, your browsing will go back to normal.
