Question: Safari, Loading site data when loading site

Hello, so today my uncle came up to me and said when he opens a site on safari lets say youtube or apple.com this other site pops up with it and the link is http://loadingdata.site/jo/ua?id=58297432-84EB-5AFC-9715-5A1118E4775E&b=s

I don't know if this is a virus because I did a Mcafee scan and it did not fix the problem. Does anyone know the solution to fix this and for it not to show up when my uncle opens a link.

Thanks for your time and patience 🙂

press and hold the Shift key.

If the above doesn't work, force quit Safari from the  menu and reopen with the shift key held down. If that doesn’t work, disconnect from the Internet, delete the web site from History,open Safari, and then reconnect to the Internet. See link for other suggestions.


Safari -Tech support scam pop-ups

I would uninstall MacAfee. It tends to interfere with the computer's operation while providing minimal to no benefit. Most long time posters recommend not using antivirus software or cleaning software such as CleanMyMac.

McAfee Uninstall Resources is near bottom of the page
