Pop ups are bad for you because they can secretly put a virus on your computer or if you click on them it Can direct you to an unsecured website with hackers and viruses on them. Also pop ups make it hard to work, they go on your screen and you have to click them off before you can continue doing what you were doing. This can be very annoying and time wasting if there are a lot of pop ups in a row.
