apple.com-mobilesurvey.com - A Malicious and Fake Survey Website

"apple.com-mobilesurvey.com" is a fake survey website created by cyber-criminals/scammers, to trick their victims into completing surveys by promising them free stuff. The cyber-criminals/scammers will earn money from the surveys completed by their victims, which is the reason why they have created the fake website and lure their victims to it, with the promise of receiving free stuff. Also, the scammers may steal their potential victims' username and password, by asking them to enter them on the same fake website.

Remember, it doesn’t matter how many surveys the victims complete on the website: "apple.com-mobilesurvey.com," they will never receive what they were promised. The cyber-criminals/scammers on the other hand, will earn money for the surveys completed by their victims. So, please do not visit the fake survey website and do not follow the instructions or complete the surveys on it.

Also, the fake website will ask some of their victims to download and install malicious software, which will infect their computers with viruses, Trojan horse or other malware. Once their victims' computers are infected, cyber-criminals can spy on them, steal their personal and financial information, or use their computers to commit other cyber-crimes, which will be traced back to the victims.

    How can I get rid of "apple.com-mobilesurvey.com," from my Samsung mobile phone?

      The surveys are distributed by rogue advertisements via certain websites and apps. So, in order to stop the surveys, you need to stop visiting the websites and remove the apps, which are showing the rogue advertisements.

      If you are using an Apple device, please see the suggestions below made by other users.

    I received a kind of pop-up saying that I was selected as a todays lucky mobile device. I don't want to click OK,, but the pop-up cannot be removed and so it blocks my internet. What can I do?

      Close all the browser windows or tabs.

        This is exactly the problem: this is impossible.

          Try force restarting the device.

            I did, several times.

              You may have a malicious or spam app/application on your device that is generating the pop-ups. Try removing recently installed apps.

                I have the same problem. I have no recently installed apps. The difficulty is that the window cannot be closed, the download arrow revolves continously. The previous window which I opened is in the background but cannot be brought to the foreground. Except for force closing the device (which didn't work anyway) the device is effectively frozen presumably except for the OK key which I will not press. Help to get rid of it will appreciated.From a tech challenged senior in Victoria Australia.

                  If you have tried all the suggestions above, you may need to take the phone to a phone technician.

                    Thank you. It's a tablet but I will take it to the local computer shop from which it was purchased. It's a most inconvenient piece of malware which I hope gets publicity!

                      In IOS:

                      Close Safari, then go to settings, inside settings go to safari, then clear history and website data. That's all folks!

                        Thank you! I had the same problem. This worked!
