Firewall-shield.com is a scam website that tricks you into download malware to your Mac. Firewall-shield.com displays a fake alert that your Mac is infected with a virus. The Firewall-shield.com website redirects the web browser to affiliate websites promoting Norton Antivirus and other antivirus software.

Not only adware is responsible for the Firewall-shield.com pop-up ads. On the Internet, advertising networks also redirect your web browser to Firewall-shield.com. Some websites redirect users through advertising networks to generate revenue. Therefore your Mac Safari, Google Chrome, or Firefox browser may end up on the Firewall-shield.com landing page.

I recommend that you check your computer for adware with Malwarebytes. Malwarebytes is free to check your computer for adware. If adware is found on your computer, you can use Malwarebytes to remove it for free.

This way, you will not run the risk of unwanted advertisements from Firewall-shield.com and other sites that redirect your browser again.

Thank you! You’re a lifesaver. I was checking out an old link and I guess they stole it and redirected me to the website. I had no idea what it was but I had a bad feeling about it and now it’s gone. Thank you again.
