uptobox[.]com offers a file hosting service. Users can upload their files and share them with other people, however, uptobox[.]com uses rogue advertising networks and contains illegal files such as set-ups of cracked software.
People who use uptobox[.]com are redirected to other, dubious websites. For example, apple.com-shield-device[.]live. In effect, uptobox[.]com is a deceptive site that tricks visitors into downloading and installing dubious software. It shows a fake virus alert and encourages visitors to remove 'detected threats' with the advertised software immediately.
In fact, uptobox[.]com might lead to other pages that promote browser hijackers, adware, and other PUAs. Browser hijackers change browser settings (promote fake search engines) and gather user-data. For example, IP addresses, URLs of visited pages, entered search queries, geolocations, etc.
Furthermore, uptobox[.]com contains set-ups of cracked (illegal) software. In many cases, these set-ups are designed by cyber criminals who attempt to trick people into installing high-risk malware such as ransomware. To prevent problems caused by this website, simply do not use it.
uptobox[.]com is similar to openload[.]co, filerio[.]in, nitroflare[.]com, and many other sites.

After uninstalling the potentially unwanted application that causes uptobox[.]com redirects, scan your computer for any remaining unwanted components or possible malware infections. To scan your computer, use recommended malware removal software.
