What is Gooddaywith-captcha.top ads?

Gooddaywith-captcha.top pretends to be a CAPTCHA verification step to make users click “Allow”

Gooddaywith-captcha.topGooddaywith-captcha.top gains access to send pop-ups by deceiving users

Gooddaywith-captcha.top may look like a non-threatening page with lovely cartoons. However, it was created to take advantage of less IT-savvy people. The site tricks people into allowing push notification spam. It disguises the process by making people believe that they have to confirm if they are not robots.

Users are asked to press the “Allow” button, which allows the page to show push notifications. Users then start getting spammed with annoying pop-up ads that can appear even when the browser is closed. The frequency of pop-ups depends on the settings that crooks have configured.

Fraudsters do not particularly care about user privacy or security so they may use rogue advertising networks that place ads leading to dangerous websites. As a result, people might end up on sites that try to trick them into providing personal information, downloading PUPs (potentially unwanted programs),[1] and even malware.

NAME Gooddaywith-captcha.top
TYPE Push notification spam; adware
SYMPTOMS Pop-up ads start appearing in the corner of the screen after the “Allow” button is pressed

Distribution tactics

Push notification spam sites, like Gooddaywith-captcha.top can rarely be found in the search results. Usually, they hide in other shady sites that are full of deceptive ads and sneaky redirects. You should stay away from websites that engage in illegal activities, like illegal streaming platforms.

They are unregulated, and many of them contain fake buttons, like “Download” or “Play” that open new tabs with websites promoted by rogue advertising networks. Many users can be misled, and think that if they press the “Allow” button they will be able to watch the movie or TV show they selected.

Cookies and cache

After an encounter with a push notification spam site, it is strongly recommended to clear your browsers. Websites and web-based applications can use various tracking technologies to collect data like your IP address,[2] geolocation, websites you visit, links you click on, and things you purchase online. All of this is done with the use of cookies[3] and cache.

These small text files are not inherently bad. Legitimate sites use them to personalize the user experience by showing relevant results, etc. However, they can also be used to generate revenue by selling them to advertising networks, and other third parties. There is an automatic solution to this problem – ReimageIntego. This powerful software can stop the tracking and delete the existing information and fix serious system errors with a click of a button.

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.
