In case you start seeing annoying pop-ups that invite you to contact their technical support hotline, it is highly likely that you are a victim of an adware infection. Typically, users might accidentally install adware or adware related applications when downloading free programs as they often travel bundled. Either way, pop-ups that invite you to call 855-981-9190 should be ignored. Using bogus tech support hotline as a method of gaining access to multiple computers is a frequently utilized method by adware creators to generate revenue. An 855-981-9190 pop-up might try to convince you that your computer has been infected and request from you to provide them with remote access to your machine to fix the problems. In reality, your computer is infected but calling 855-981-9190 will not solve the problem. The 'technical support' offered at 855-981-9190 is not genuine, and you are not advised to use their services. Instead, computer security experts recommend users to ignore those pop-ups and use a powerful anti-spyware tool that will remove them.
