How to remove pop-up is a potentially unwanted program (PUP), more specifically a type of adware, that is known for generating intrusive pop-up ads on your computer. It infects computers primarily through bundled software, where it is hidden within the installer of another program. When the user installs that program, the adware is also installed without their knowledge. In other cases, it can be downloaded unknowingly by visiting malicious websites or clicking on suspicious links. Once installed, exploits browser notifications to display unwanted ads and potentially malicious content. It does this by asking the user to allow notifications, often disguised as a verification process or necessary to access certain content.

These pop-ups can occur on any browser, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, etc., and can affect any device running these browsers, including PCs, laptops, tablets, and smartphones.
