Bargaret.workBargaret.work is a push notification virus that you might encounter after you press "Allow" on the notification prompt

Bargaret.work is a URL address you might see after being redirected from another site. Regardless if you use Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or another browser, you will be presented with a popup message asking for the notifications to be allowed. In the background, you will be shown a deceptive message, which implies that you have to agree to the notifications to see the underlying content on the site.

If you allow Bargaret.work notifications, it will periodically deliver popups to your screen – these commonly include links to scam, phishing,[1] and other malicious websites. For example, the popup might claim that your browser or Flash Player is out of date, that your PC is infected with a virus, or that you can earn high sums of money after investing just a few dollars. Hence, you should never click on these ads, and instead, stop the notifications from being sent – we provide Bargaret.work removal instructions below.

Further steps Redirects and ads might indicate adware infection, so you should check your system with anti-malware, clean your browsers, and attempt to fix virus damage with a repair tool ReimageIntego

Users might start seeing the intrusive popups and not remember that they enabled these notifications via the website. Hence, many might start calling it Bargaret.work virus, although it is not technically true, permission to show these notifications was granted in the first place. While it is unlikely that the system is infected, we recommend you check for adware with SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner or Malwarebytes tools or make use of our manual instructions below.

Cybercriminals abuse a well-known browser feature that allows websites to deliver notifications to users who subscribed. However, Bargaret.work does it in a particularly deceptive and malicious way – it attempts to trick visitors into pressing that “Allow” button.

Upon entering the site, users are presented with a request to allow notifications to be shown, while the page claims either a download is ready or that they need to agree to simply close the page. Here is an example of what can be shown:

PREPARE TO DOWNLOAD!

You need to enable browser notifications to start downloading.

It is not stated what type of download it is or why something needs to be downloaded in the first place. As evident, you should never oblige to suspicious requests to download anything on a random website, as you might infect your computer with various malware, including the treacherous ransomware.[2] Additionally, you should not click on links if you subscribed to Bargaret.work notifications by accident.

Bargaret.work push notificationsBargaret.work is a deceptive site that uses social engineering to make users subscribe for ads

In case your anti-malware software has found some more dangerous infections, experts[3] advise you should immediately clean your system and then perform additional checks with repair software ReimageIntego.

Bargaret.work is not the only scam site that tries to use social engineering to make users allow the notifications to be shown. Savethevideo.comEtnessbr.pro, and Directednotconverted.ml are just a few examples that operate the almost identical scheme. The popularity is simple to explain – it generates cybercriminals money, even though such activity might put thousands of users at risk online.

Avoid being scammed online and install new apps with care

While the internet became a much safer place for users over the years, new threats emerged as actors oven come up with new ideas and ways to bypass the implemented security measures and reach their goals. Push notifications became one of the features that are used by criminals in order to deliver users ads, most of which are not safe to use. Therefore, it is important to avoid allowing random websites from showing you notifications in the first place.

As soon as you enter an unknown website that asks you to enable notifications in exchange for something (e.g., showing a video, begin a download, or even view the underlying content), you should never click “Allow” and close down the browser tab immediately. Even if you subscribe to these notifications, you should be safe as long as you avoid clicking on links.

You should also be careful when installing new software. Adware and other junk programs are often incorporated in a single software bundle that you might download from a third-party website. Never rush the installation of new programs – read the instructions carefully and remove all the ticks next to optional installs.

Recover files after data-affecting malware attacks

While much of the data can be accidentally deleted due to various reasons, malware is one of the main culprits that can cause loss of pictures, documents, videos, and other important files. More serious malware infections lead to significant data loss when your documents, system files, and images get encrypted. In particular, ransomware is is a type of malware that focuses on such functions, so your files become useless without an ability to access them.

Even though there is little to no possibility to recover after file-locking threats, some applications have features for data recovery in the system. In some cases, Data Recovery Pro can also help to recover at least some portion of your data after data-locking virus infection or general cyber infection.
