What is Eptobeemeeps.com ads?

Eptobeemeeps.com ads can lead you to malicious websites

Eptobeemeeps.comPush notifications might deliver potentially malicious links to your desktop

Push notifications from Eptobeemeeps.com can be extremely intrusive and annoying because they show up at random times and disrupt all activities, be it working or watching a movie on a computer. What makes matters worse is that the pop-ups often include links to potentially malicious websites where users could be tricked into installing malware or disclosing their personal details. Hence, clicking on the links provided by this website should be avoided at all costs.

The reason why you see alerts on your desktop regardless of which browser or which website is in operation is because push notifications work at the system level. In essence, you permitted the Eptobeemeeps.com site to send the information to you, be it intentionally or not.

To be precise, the unwanted activity starts as soon as you press the “Allow” button within the notification prompt. Many users are tricked by crooks, thanks to the social engineering they are using. This applies to users who have never dealt with push notification scam sites before and also those who do not know enough about how the feature functions.

If you are one of such people, you should not fret, as this situation is easily fixable. However, keep in mind that persistent redirects to malicious websites might be a sign of adware infection, so this aspect should also be investigated. Below you will find all details you would require to ensure that your system is clean and your browser no longer spams you with intrusive pop-ups all day.

Type Push notifications, scam, spam

Symptoms Intrusive desktop notifications show up on the desktop at any time, promoting websites of dubious content

Further steps You should check your system for adware with SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner or another security software. Also, cleaning web browsers with ReimageIntego or manually is beneficial as well

There are thousands of websites developed for nefarious purposes. We already wrote about similar scams, including Featbooksterile.com, Mportantly.online, Zationtothe.online, and many others. Fraudulent content online is not a new phenomenon, so web surfers should always be careful with the content they interact online with.

Stop the disruptive Eptobeemeeps.com pop-ups

Many users think that the intrusive pop-ups are caused by a computer infection. This is not entirely true, as push notifications are not inherently malicious, although they can be used as a tool to deliver any type of information to users, including links (never interact with these, or your system might actually get infected).

Luckily, there is an easy way to remove unwanted notifications via web browser settings.

Scam techniques explained: how to avoid being tricked online

Push notifications are used by many websites developers legitimately. All they have to do is ask users whether they want to receive them. If they agree, the site has permission from the user to send notifications at particular time intervals – it usually includes news or new video uploads – it highly depends on the website contents.

What most people are not aware of is that scam engineers use these tools to deliver commercial content directly to users' desktops, monetizing the exposure. Advertising is a popular form of generating revenue and can be used as a great alternative for paid content. Unfortunately, crooks scam users and insert the ads into their screens in one way or another.

As we already explained, adware is one of the problems that users have to deal with when dealing with extensive ads all over the internet. Push notifications are not an infection but can be used in a very similar way. What remains is to convince users that enabling those notifications by pressing the “Allow” button is not what it actually is.

Eptobeemeeps.com virusEptobeemeeps.com uses fake messages to trick users into subscribing

Here is when social engineering comes in. Those who do not know how push notification works are provided with misleading information on Eptobeemeeps.com or a similar website. For example, the message might say that there is a video to be watched, but only after the “Allow” button is pressed. Other times, visitors are asked to verify that they are not robots, allegedly.

Of course, all of these claims are false and should be ignored. Remember that, whatever the message on the page tells you, it's a lie. The prompt always results in the same outcome – if you click “Allow,” you provide permission for that website to deliver pop-ups. If you wish not to receive these requests at all, you can easily do that via browser settings:

  • Open Google Chrome
  • Go to Menu > Settings
  • Scroll down to Privacy and security section
  • Select Site Settings
  • Scroll down again and pick Notifications
  • Choose Use quieter messaging option.

This setting will still allow you to access the prompt if clicked, but it will no longer pop up upon entering a website. You can also choose Don't allow sites to show notifications setting if you want to block it completely.

Tackle the adware and redirect problem

Finally, we should talk about adware and its impact on the system that is infected. In many cases, users confuse pop-up ads and push notifications because they look almost identical and show up above all the other windows or UI[1] elements. However, there is a fundamental difference – pop-up ads stem either from the website they are embedded in or are caused by an adware infection.

Adware is deceptive software you might not even know you have installed. This is because it is mainly spread via software bundling – a misleading marketing practice that tries to hide optional components within a single installer. You are likely to have adware installed if:

  • You download freeware[2] from third-party websites and don't pay close attention to the installation process;
  • The web browser redirects you to suspicious websites, and you see more ads everywhere.

Besides, adware is also known to be gathering information via cookies[3] or other tracking technologies, which might compromise your privacy in some cases. Thus, you should remove all the potentially unwanted programs or malware that could be installed on your device, and the easiest way to do it is by using SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner security software. It can quickly check whether malicious programs are installed on your system and remove them automatically.

If you need a complementary tool that would clean the web browsers for you, repair malware-caused system damage, and clean various junk and caches from your system, we highly recommend using the ReimageIntego utility. Below we provide more details on deleting cookies and web data manually if you wish to go that route.

How to prevent from getting adware

Do not let government spy on you

The government has many issues in regards to tracking users' data and spying on citizens, so you should take this into consideration and learn more about shady information gathering practices. Avoid any unwanted government tracking or spying by going totally anonymous on the internet. 

You can choose a different location when you go online and access any material you want without particular content restrictions. You can easily enjoy internet connection without any risks of being hacked by using Private Internet Access VPN.

Control the information that can be accessed by government any other unwanted party and surf online without being spied on. Even if you are not involved in illegal activities or trust your selection of services, platforms, be suspicious for your own security and take precautionary measures by using the VPN service.

Backup files for the later use, in case of the malware attack

Computer users can suffer from data losses due to cyber infections or their own faulty doings. Ransomware can encrypt and hold files hostage, while unforeseen power cuts might cause a loss of important documents. If you have proper up-to-date backups, you can easily recover after such an incident and get back to work. It is also equally important to update backups on a regular basis so that the newest information remains intact – you can set this process to be performed automatically.

When you have the previous version of every important document or project you can avoid frustration and breakdowns. It comes in handy when malware strikes out of nowhere. Use Data Recovery Pro for the data restoration process.
