What is Fugles.net ads?

Fugles.net shows misleading messages and redirects to other malicious websites

Fugles.netFugles.net is a scam you should not engage with

When browsing the web via Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, MS, Edge, or Safari, you might encounter websites you did not expect, and Fugles.net is one of them. Usually, the redirect is a result of a click on a malicious link on some other website; you might also be a victim of an automatic script that would reroute you through many sites before reaching the landing one. In any case, this is where the misinformation and deception begin.

After entering the website, users are commonly shown a fake message which encourages them to press the “Allow” button within the notification prompt. However, it is often presented as an action that has nothing to do with its real consequences: visitors are tricked into believing that they need to press “Allow” in order to watch a video, download a file, confirm that they are not bots, etc.

Fugles.net was created by unfair individuals who want to profit from ads – it generates money passively for its creators, as soon as users oblige. There are thousands of similar websites, including News-kesiba.cc, To2s.biz, or News-cetemo.cc, which specialize in scamming users in a similar manner.

If you have been a victim of this phishing attack, you should not panic, even if you indeed allowed the website to show notifications without realizing it – there is an easy fix. All you have to do is access the settings section of your web browser and remove the website in question from the “Allowed” list.

That being said, frequent redirects to suspicious, deceptive, ad-filled, or malicious websites might be a prime sign of adware[1] infection, so you should definitely take your time to check your system properly. Below we provide all the information needed to remove the pop-ups and ways to secure your computer.

Name Fugles.net
Type Push notifications, ads, scam, pop-ups
distribution The intrusive activity starts at some point after the”Allow” button is pressed within the notification prompt
Symptoms Pop-up notifications are shown on a desktop at random times
Risks Ads and links to sites displayed by the website might be dangerous: users might suffer from monetary losses, install malware or potentially unwanted programs on their systems, or disclose their sensitive data to cybercrooks
Removal To stop the unwanted activity, you have to access your browser's settings section and deny permission for the website in question. Adware could also be the reason you see ads, so you should scan your device with SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner security software to be safe
Further steps Cleaning web browsers is just as important when dealing with potentially unwanted programs, so do so by following the instructions below or use ReimageIntego for a quicker solution

As mentioned, people usually do not visit websites that would put their safety and security in danger purposely. The most common reason for redirects is an ad or link clicks – be it deliberately or not. This usually happens on websites that are considered less secure, such as illegal online streaming, torrents, gambling, etc. Likewise, such sites can also engage in automatic redirects to Fugles.net and similar places without visitors doing anything at all (or clicking on an empty space somewhere within the page).

As evident, if you frequent places that distribute illegal software or provide access to stream otherwise paid TV shows/movies, you might not only get redirected to a scam site but also get infected with ransomware or similar malware, be convinced into subscribing for fake services and charged automatically in certain time periods, or have your sensitive information stolen by cybercriminals. This is why you should stay away from such sites entirely.

There is another reason why you might end up on malicious sites, and that's adware. These potentially unwanted programs specialize in displaying deals, offers, coupons, in-text links, pop-ups, as well as might be a prime reason for unexpected browser redirects. Some aggressive adware is even known to automatically open the browser or new tabs to accommodate the commercial material.

If the unwanted activity started after you have installed some type of application (video player, file converter, or even an ad-blocker), you should try uninstalling it and see if that helps. The problem is, that some apps might go rogue only later or might even be invisible to a regular user.

Fugles.net virusCrooks use cheap tricks to make users click the "Allow" button

Therefore, we strongly recommend you scan your computer with SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner, Malwarebytes, or another powerful security software. It can ensure that no malicious processes are running in the background and remove any related files automatically for you. In case anti-malware finds something unexpected on your system, make sure you clean your browsers with ReimageIntego or refer to the instructions at the bottom of this post.

Stop Fugles.net from showing you notifications

Many users have a lot of misconceptions when it comes to the push notification feature. People often confuse it with pop-up ads, which is understandable considering how alike they visually look. However, there is a fundamental difference between the two – ads are likely to be triggered by access to a website that displays them or by a potentially unwanted application installed on the system.

Push notifications are triggered by users allowing them in the first place, as they are a legitimate feature – an API[2] – used by many websites. In fact, you have probably seen a push notification from Windows Defender or another tool on your PC (Apple devices also commonly make use of it), and there is nothing wrong with these notifications, as they inform about important actions that are being carried out in the background. You can also configure the installed apps to show you notifications as well, depending on your preference.

This is why scanning the computer with anti-malware does not remove Fugles.net ads, which leaves users baffled. Luckily, it is very easy to deny a website to show you notifications after accepting them. Follow the guide below, as we provide detailed steps for each of the most popular web browsers.

How to protect yourself from being scammed online

Online fraud has been around for as long as the internet was becoming a part of everyone's lives. The push notification feature was first introduced by Apple back in 2009[3] and was meant to help users to receive relevant information, grabbing their attention immediately. However, it did not take long before crooks realized that it can be used to show ads to users easily. Crooks became aware that it can be used for personal monetary gains, even if it is done illegally.

This is why push notification scam sites are created. There is no other information or other useful content there, as their main goal is to make users allow notifications. Here are a few examples of what you might expect after entering Fugles.net or a similar website:

  • Click Allow to confirm that you are not a robot
  • Click Allow to watch the video
  • Your file is ready to download. Press ALLOW to continue
  • If you are 18+, click Allow,
  • Click “Allow” to close this window, etc.

If users agree to do what is asked of them, they allow the website to deliver them push notifications, even if they don't understand that initially. Even if the “Block” button is pressed, they are then forwarded to other malicious sites, which ask for exactly the same thing. Therefore, it is not advisable for users to interact with anything prompted on such sites, and close down the tab immediately.

Also, employ a trustworthy ad-blocker and security software with a web protection feature, it could warn you about online phishing attempts and make it easier to avoid them.

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.
