What is is a dangerous phishing site that displays unwanted content on Google Chrome or other browsers is a push-notification virus that displays intrusive ads and might redirect users to dangerous sites is a cybersecurity threat that belongs to push notification virus category. The domain, which users mostly visit unintentionally, asks them to allow notifications and, once the permission is granted, starts redirecting to various bogus software download sites. Unfortunately, this behavior can also lead users to vulnerable or hacked domains, where malware can be installed or personal information stolen. Generally, is not as harmful as long as visitors leave it immediately. However, problems start when users get redirected to the deceptive site continually – it means that the device is infected with adware[1] application, and until it is deleted, pop-ups, notifications, banners, deals, offers, in-text links, and similar unwanted content will be shown on Google Chrome, Safari, Mozilla Firefox, or MS Edge browsers.

Optimization To recover from adware infection, scan your PC with FortectIntego

There are several aspects of that makes it a phishing one. First of all, the domain name – there is no accident that crooks chose such words like “Chrome” and “service,” as it instantly makes users associate it with something trustworthy (as evident, Chrome is the most prominent browser in the world, and bad actors are quick to make use of such popularity, as usual).

Secondly, users are greeted with a fake error message stating the following:

Error on page, address could not be found.
This site can' be reached
Click Here to continue

As soon as the users click ANYWHERE on the page, they are redirected to, which prompts them to Allow notifications to view the contents of the site. This trick has been not only used by the virus but also many other alike sites:,,, and many others.

If users agree to subscribe to notifications, they will be immediately guided to a page that prompts them to download Amazing Tab PUP or other bogus software. Additionally, they will be continuously bugged by pop-ups and redirects to questionable sites, where personal data like banking details can be leaked, or even malware downloaded. To remove notifications, you will have to get rid of the entry in your browser settings (we explain how to do that in the last section).

However, if your browser suspiciously redirects you not only to site but also to other questionable domains, it means that adware is involved. Ad-supported software seeks monetary benefit by exposing users to commercial sites by using a pay-per-click[2] scheme. Unfortunately, this activity can also compromise users' online safety and computer security.

Therefore, to successfully perform removal, you will have to locate and eliminate the adware program. You can either do that manually or rely on security software that can detect PUPs. Finally, we recommend you scan your device with FortectIntego to restore its functions. is an unsafe website that prompts users to allow notifications to later show users commercial content

Adware and other PUPs should be avoided to bypass security risks

Initially, adware and such-like programs are not considered to be malware (although some PUPs display exceptionally intrusive behavior and modify system settings).[3] However, an ad-supported application can serve as a tunnel to places on the internet that are unsafe, such as tech support scams, phishing, spoofed and similar sites. All these hazards can result in accidental personal information exposure to malicious actors, harmful software installation, as well as money loss. Therefore, do not risk it and make sure you avoid potentially unwanted programs.

Most unwanted applications are installed together with shareware or freeware, and users do not even notice the infiltration. This happens because developers use various tricks to hide optional components within installation wizards, and makes less IT-savvy individuals more prone to such infections.

Therefore, be careful when you install new software from the internet. Choose reputable download sources, make sure you read EULA and Privacy Policy, read through the installation instructions and, most importantly, pick Custom/Advanced installation settings – it will allow you to get rid of PUPs before they get installed.

Get rid of pop-ups in an easy way removal instructions depend on whether or not your device is affected by adware. Just to be sure, experts advise[4] to scan your PC with security software, as other infections might be present as well. Alternatively, you can remove virus manually as per our instructions below. Beware that adware might be disguised and it sometimes is pretty hard to determine which app the PUP is associated with.

Once you get rid of the potentially unwanted program, you should also reset your browsers – Google Chrome, MS Edge, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, and all the others that are installed on your device. In case security software did not find any infections, and notifications are not leaving your screen, perform the following steps to stop pop-ups on Google Chrome:

How to prevent from getting adware

Choose a proper web browser and improve your safety with a VPN tool

Online spying has got momentum in recent years and people are getting more and more interested in how to protect their privacy online. One of the basic means to add a layer of security – choose the most private and secure web browser. Although web browsers can't grant full privacy protection and security, some of them are much better at sandboxing, HTTPS upgrading, active content blocking, tracking blocking, phishing protection, and similar privacy-oriented features. However, if you want true anonymity, we suggest you employ a powerful Private Internet Access VPN – it can encrypt all the traffic that comes and goes out of your computer, preventing tracking completely.


Lost your files? Use data recovery software

While some files located on any computer are replaceable or useless, others can be extremely valuable. Family photos, work documents, school projects – these are types of files that we don't want to lose. Unfortunately, there are many ways how unexpected data loss can occur: power cuts, Blue Screen of Death errors, hardware failures, crypto-malware attack, or even accidental deletion.

To ensure that all the files remain intact, you should prepare regular data backups. You can choose cloud-based or physical copies you could restore from later in case of a disaster. If your backups were lost as well or you never bothered to prepare any, Data Recovery Pro can be your only hope to retrieve your invaluable files.
