How To Block ForeSee Pop up Suveys – Remove ForeSee Results

What is ForeSee (Foreseeresults survey popups)?

ForeSee or Foreseeresults survey pop-ups are legitimate and derive from the Federal Trade Commision, but ForeSee (Foreseeresults.com) is often mistakenly referred to as the ForeSee virus of ForeSee malware. You may have noticed ForeSee survey pop-ups occur when first visiting a website, that aggressively push for website visitors to complete a satisfaction survey concerning the current website they are visiting, once they leave the website. ForeSee is not malware and not a computer virus though many can argue that Foresee practices very unethical marketing practices that primarily disrupt internet users. It should be noted that ForeSee may be considered malware in the future, given the fact they use very unethical techniques to collect information without consent. It can also be said that ForeSee may target and entrap victims to terms they would likely not agree with if presented in a proper manner.

    if there are updates/suggestions specifically for android please add. ABP for android only works over wifi. Their suggestion to use AB browser is not helpful as it looks like a beta browser from 2005. I don't mind nonintrusive ads but the nonstop foresee gets on my nerves. TYVM for any suggestions.
