Crypto Miners

Cryptominers are a type of malware that use your system’s computing power to mine digital money. Cryptomining scripts drain your battery, slow down your device, and can increase your energy bill. When this rule is enabled in Quiet cryptominers are being blocked.

Generating cryptocurrencies usually requires solving a complex cryptologic puzzle, a resource-intensive process that takes a lot of computing energy and power. To evade the cost, cryptojackers deploy these scripts on other people’s computers without their consent to draw energy and power.

If you found a website or part of a website that should be blocked or hidden by this rule and it is not, please report it in Quiet under the Report Website section in the Settings view.
