Smumi.club Popup is a malicious fake alert message dedicated to promoting shady browser extensions that can be of malicious nature. If you fall for this pop-up’s deception, then your PC can become infected with malicious adware-type browser extensions as well as extensions regarded as potentially unwanted. You can see this pop-up as a result of being redirected to it from questionable websites. Apart from that, you can see it if you have a malicious browser extension installed on your browser and if that is the case, then you have to remove it. There is not a lot of information about this fake alert at this point, but we have managed to obtain some valuable information. So, if you keep seeing it, then please read this whole article.
Smumi.club Popup features a dialog box that can feature one of two messages. One of these messages reads “Add extension to leave" and you can click either OK or Cancel. You can also tick the box that says “Prevent this page from creating additional dialogs.” The second message reads “Changes you made may not be saved, ” and you can either click Leave or Stay. It also features the same “Prevent this page from creating additional dialogs” option that you can tick. However, it is unclear how the ticking of that box affects this pop-up because Smumi.club Popup is bound to reappear.
You should not click any of the options presented to you as this pop-up may initiate the installation of adware or potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) on your browser. As far as we know, this pop-up is set to appear on Google Chrome only which suggests that there might be a browser extension for Chrome specifically that is configured to render this pop-up. If you cannot close the tab that presents Smumi.club Popup, then you ought to start Task Manager and end the browser’s process and then launch it again and go to its list of extensions to look for the browser extension that keeps rendering it.
There are two possible ways you may encounter this pop-up. We believe that certain malicious websites can redirect you to it if you click a certain link or a website can redirect you to it automatically without your input. As previously mentioned, certain browser extension(s) that are currently unknown may end up on your PC as a result of installing a malicious software bundle from an unreliable source that can inject it into your browser secretly and, thus, you may start to see this pop-up.
Given the unreliable, malicious nature of Smumi.club Popup, you should consider getting rid of it by any means possible. If you see it when visiting a website, then steer clear of it, but if it is shown to you by a browser extension, then be sure to remove the browser extension. The results of interacting with this pop-up are unpredictable, and while we cannot claim that it is highly malicious, we can conclude that is useless, annoying, and intrusive. Therefore, you ought to get rid of it.
