This domain may appear on your browser when you click outgoing links to unfamiliar websites.

So what are the potential routes that the adware programs take to your computer? There are many ways to get infected with adware applications and, most of the time; users do not realize the danger that might hide behind regular online activity. For instance, adware programs might be hiding behind pop-up ads and other interactive content on online gaming websites, file-sharing sites, and other popular pages. Also, adware programs could be bundled together with freeware that is widely available for download at file-sharing websites.
Technically, it should be possible to avoid installing additional freeware apps if users were more attentive during the installation process. There are steps in the installation wizard that inform users about the additional applications, and ask them whether they want them installed. Of course, users are too used to skipping these steps because they think all the installations are practically default, and they just need to keep on clicking “Next.” Unfortunately, this kind of behavior eventually results in a lot of unwanted installations that can prove to be dangerous to your computer’s security. Therefore, whenever you are about to install a new program, be sure to check out every step in the installation wizard. You might as well prevent an adware infection this way.
What would happen if you get redirected to Survey.circularly.xyz anyway? It depends on the program and service that makes use of this adware server. For example, in our case, the domain offered users to fill out an online survey that would “give you a chance to win HD Streaming Movies.” It may also offer to install fake programs. For example, you could be redirected to a page that says you have to run a full system scan with online scanner or that you are missing a codec and now you have to install something new. Please note that developers of reliable applications and browser add-ons would not indulge in such marketing tactics.
And yes, the fact that you keep on getting redirected to unfamiliar websites via Survey.circularly.xyz just shows that the adware programs installed on your computer try to make as much money as possible. After all, you help them generate a financial profit every time you click the promoted links or land on the affiliated sites. This does not mean that the programs you have on your computer try to infect you with malware. They are far too simple for that. However, adware apps could be easily exploited by cyber criminals because they are really vulnerable and have a lot of security loopholes.
So, in the worst-case scenario, this seemingly annoying nuisance could end up in a serious malware infection that would steal your personal data and totally destroy your computer’s system. To avoid that, you will do yourself a favor if you terminate all the applications that could make use of Survey.circularly.xyz right now.
