What is Flymylife.info ads?

Flymylife.info shows fake virus infection alerts to profit from ad clicks and software purchases

Flymylife.infoFlymylife.info is a fake website that can trick users into accepting to receive malicious ads

Flymylife.info is a dangerous website that you might come across while browsing websites of dubious nature, such as peer-to-peer networks or software crack distribution sites. In some other situations, users may find themselves here as a result of adware that is covertly operating in the background on their machines. These potentially unwanted programs are well known for diverting online traffic to dubious websites and exposing users to phishing[1] content.

The root of the problem with Flymylife.info is not the website itself but what users see when they reach it. When people arrive, they see fabricated messages prompting them to sign up for push notifications, which then show as pop-ups at the top or bottom right of the screen, and it doesn't matter which websites are being visited at the time. The displayed ads are frequently dubious and could result in various financial losses, privacy concerns, and even malware infections.

How the scam tricks people into subscribing

It is clear that few people would deliberately jeopardize their online experience with aggressive adverts that appear out of nowhere. However, there is a comprehensive method used by crooks to trick consumers into subscribing to these push notifications. It begins with a dubious redirect from another website, which happens after a user clicks a booby-trapped link or comes across a malicious script. Unexpected redirects add the element of surprise, which works very well with phishing content, as people are more prone to make mistakes if they are taken off guard.

Users are presented with a message as soon as they reach the Flymylife.info website, which at first glance may seem fairly innocent and like something they have already seen. Users might see, for instance, a captcha verification or a message stating that they must verify their age, for example:

  • If you are 18+, click Allow
  • Click “Allow” to win a prize and get it in our shop!
  • Click Allow to confirm that you are not a robot
  • Press “Allow” to watch the video
  • Click Allow to start downloading, etc.

Flymylife.info scamThe scam site could use a variety of different fake messages to make people click the "Allow" button

These messages are obviously made up, and their sole purpose is to get users to click the “Allow” button on the notification box. When they do, not much happens, and most people forget what transpired. Users wouldn't initially notice Flymylife.info ads which would show fake virus alerts, get-rich-quick[2] scams, and similar dubious material.

These are not unique messages or techniques used to convince people to subscribe. In fact, you could encounter many other websites (Togainarep.buzz, Threecaptcha.top, and Higedgene.com, for example) that use exact same phases and images to convince people to press the “Allow” button within the notification prompt.

Remove unwanted push notifications

Many users may treat Flymylife.info ads as an infection, as it is a typical sign of one. This is related to the fact that many users are not that familiar with the push notification feature and aren't sure how it works. Combining this with the fact they are tricked into subscribing, the whole situation becomes a mystery, and they struggle to find ways to remove these suspicious push notifications.

Luckily, even if you were tricked by a scam, removing push notifications from dubious websites is not difficult. All you have to do is access browser settings and, under site settings, block Flymylife.info from using the browser's API to deliver ads to your desktop. Follow these steps for your browser:

Adware removal and why it is important

The majority of the time, clicking on a bogus link would lead users to Flymylife.info and other dangerous websites, but it is also possible that adware on the device is to blame for these redirects. Adware is a category of software that is seen as being misleading since it spreads by questionable means before inserting intrusive advertisements everywhere users go. Adware frequently falls short of delivering many of the valuable services that were first promised, making advertisements its primary characteristic.

You should scan your system with SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner, Malwarebytes, or another potent security software to make sure it is clean of adware. This can help get rid of any additional malicious software that would otherwise go unnoticed. Your primary defense against damaging malware attacks, including ransomware,[3] is anti-malware software.

To remove trackers from your browsers and junk files from the system, run a scan with ReimageIntego at the end. Malware can seriously harm a system, leading to crashes, malfunctions, and other problems. If you rather perform these steps manually, follow the instructions below.

How to prevent from getting adware

Protect your privacy – employ a VPN

There are several ways how to make your online time more private – you can access an incognito tab. However, there is no secret that even in this mode, you are tracked for advertising purposes. There is a way to add an extra layer of protection and create a completely anonymous web browsing practice with the help of Private Internet Access VPN. This software reroutes traffic through different servers, thus leaving your IP address and geolocation in disguise. Besides, it is based on a strict no-log policy, meaning that no data will be recorded, leaked, and available for both first and third parties. The combination of a secure web browser and Private Internet Access VPN will let you browse the Internet without a feeling of being spied or targeted by criminals. 

No backups? No problem. Use a data recovery tool

If you wonder how data loss can occur, you should not look any further for answers – human errors, malware attacks, hardware failures, power cuts, natural disasters, or even simple negligence. In some cases, lost files are extremely important, and many straight out panic when such an unfortunate course of events happen. Due to this, you should always ensure that you prepare proper data backups on a regular basis.

If you were caught by surprise and did not have any backups to restore your files from, not everything is lost. Data Recovery Pro is one of the leading file recovery solutions you can find on the market – it is likely to restore even lost emails or data located on an external device.
