What Is Atdmt?


Tracking cookies are the same as regular cookies because they install on your computer server when you navigate to certain websites. The only difference is that tracking cookies are used in unlawful ways to attempt to steal personal information. Atdmt is a tracking cookie that secretly installs on your computer and should be dealt with as soon as it’s detected.
History
Atdmt is a tracking cookie developed and operated by Atdmt.com. Like other tracking cookie companies, Atdmt.com supplies advertisement solutions for business companies on the Internet. While it appears that it is a legitimate tool, Atdmt has been recognized by many antivirus programs as a tracking cookie that relies on keywords to perform malicious activity. It may also go by other alias names such as atdmt.net but one thing is for sure, it’s a dangerous program contrary to what to what its developers say.
Effects
Atdmt secretly installs on your computer without your constant and makes its way to the cookie folder where it acts like regular cookies. Anytime you open your web browser, it begins monitoring typed URL addresses and web searches and shares the information with third-party advertisement companies who begin sending pop-up advertisements to your computer based on the information received. Atdmt may also adjust your homepage settings and redirect your searches to specific advertisement websites.
Solution
It is important to run an antivirus program that has spyware removal capabilities to detect and remove Atdmt from your computer. An antivirus program such as AVG (see Resources) is both free and includes spyware tools capable of deleting Atdmt. Clearing your web browser history frequently will also help remove Atdmt tracking cookies and also protect personal information from falling into the wrong hands. Clearing browser history will vary depending on the web browser, but generally it can be performed from the Tools or Internet Options on your web browser.
Warning
Make sure that the pop-up blocker is up and running on your web browser. Since Atdmt secretly installs using pop-ups, one of the best ways to prevent its emergence is to run a pop-up blocker. Do not use the Internet before first installing an antivirus program on your computer. Internet attacks come from many angles; therefore it is important to make sure that your computer is equipped with protection software. Avoid visiting or downloading files from websites that look questionable (E.g. keygen websites) because not only do you risk downloading Atdmt, but also other more dangerous files (e.g. Trojan horses).
Misconceptions
Regardless of what security applications you install on your computer, there is no guarantee that you will prevent Atdmt from installing on your computer. Your computer activity in addition to the security tools is the key to minimizing the chances of it installing on your computer. Regular cookies are not the same as tracking cookies such as Atdmt. Regular cookies unlike tracking cookies install on your computer but do not monitor your browsing activities or attempt to steal personal information. They are only used to make certain websites work more efficiently.
