What is Hsmolarifyre.top?

Hsmolarifyre.top – deceptive website that seeks to insert ads into your desktop

Hsmolarifyre.top Hsmolarifyre.top is potentially dangerous website that delivers you intrusive desktop pop-ups

Hsmolarifyre.top is yet another website that uses social engineering[1] tricks in order to make users subscribe to site notifications. Visitors are immediately presented with a prompt that asks to press “Allow,” which, if pressed, would start delivering intrusive advertisements directly on desktops, regardless of the web browser (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, MS Edge, etc.).

If clicked, Hsmolarifyre.top ads might be exceptionally dangerous, as threat actors often employ insecure ad-networks. As a result, users might see prompts that show fake alerts claiming the expired antivirus software license, malware infections, programs being outdated, or presenting other scams. Thus, it is important not to click on such pop-ups, as malware infections, personal information disclosure, or monetary losses could occur quickly. Instead, you should remove Hsmolarifyre.top notifications by following the detailed instructions below.

Name Hsmolarifyre.top
Type Push notification virus, scam, ads
IP address 52.206.71.220
Distribution Threat actors employ various tricks in order to make users enable notifications; the entry happens as soon as the “Allow” button is pressed on the prompt
Symptoms Pop-up notifications show up on a regular basis at the bottom-right corner of the desktop – these ads often include inappropriate, scam, phishing, or other malicious content
Dangers Clicking on links that are embedded within the notification prompt, exploring the sites these links bring to or downloading files can be particularly dangerous – users can get infected with malware, suffer from financial losses or privacy issues
Elimination To prevent the site from displaying notifications to you, access the site permission section via your web browser settings – you can find more details below
Further steps Redirects and ads might indicate adware infection, so you should check your system with anti-malware, clean your browsers, and attempt to fix virus damage with a repair tool ReimageIntego

In most cases, users encounter the so-called Hsmolarifyre.top virus site by accident – they are either redirected from somewhere else or after they click on a malicious link. Nonetheless, in some rare cases, unexpected browser redirects might mean that adware managed to break into your device. These potentially unwanted programs focus on delivering ads in as many ways as possible, and URL redirect[2] is one of them.

As soon as the Hsmolarifyre.top website is reached, users might encounter different messages on it. First of all, the contents might be localized, so the notification could be displayed in the local language. There are several different tricks that the creators of push notification scam use – they include:

  • A download is pending and you need to press allow to start it;
  • A video is about to be played – press “Allow” to continue;
  • Verify that you are not a robot – press “Allow”;
  • If you are +18, press “Allow” to continue, etc.

In other cases, developers of the site get more original, providing claims that are beyond silly. Here's one of the examples that are till prevalent:

Press “Allow” to close this window

This window may be closed by pressing “Allow” button. If you want to continue using this site, just click more info.

Even if you understood the principle of Hsmolarifyre.top scam and would decline the offer, the website would simply return you to the same page or redirect you to another one asking to do the same. Therefore, the best way to get rid of this annoying site is by closing down the browser tab.

It is also important to note that the notification feature itself is legitimate and is used by millions of secure websites. It allows visitors to receive the most relevant information from sources they are keen on using. Unfortunately, malicious actors quickly realized that the feature could be used to deliver ads and sites like Content4you.net, Directednotconverted.ml, Gdimmunical.club, and many others began to emerge.

While service providers hurry to shut these places down, there are simply too many of them. Almost anyone could create a site such as Hsmolarifyre.top in order to scam users and acquire juicy ad revenue. Thus, do not oblige and press the “Allow” button.

Even if you accidentally accepted notifications, Hsmolarifyre.top removal is not a difficult process (as long as you do not click on links that are provided by this malicious site). All you have to do is access the settings section of your browser and prevent the site from displaying ads.

Since redirects to scam sites might also be a sign of adware or another PUP infection, experts[3] also recommend performing a full system scan with SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner, Malwarebytes, or another security software. After that, you could also use ReimageIntego for the best results.

Don't subscribe to unwanted ads and avoid PUPs

As previously mentioned, the push notification feature itself is fully legitimate and used by many websites. However, many malicious websites seek to abuse it for nefarious purposes. As soon as users are tricked into pressing “Allow,” they typically do not know that they allowed popup ads to be shown on their desktops. Since the notification does not seem to be shown within the browser window, users are typically unaware of how to eliminate these annoying ads. This is another reason why the so-called push notification viruses are so successful.

To avoid being tricked by crooks, never trust suspicious prompts that ask you to press “Allow” – there is no video to be played, no file to download, and no robot-check that would allow you to proceed. All these attributes are fake and compiled in a way to make users subscribe to advertisements for profits.

It is also important not to download freeware apps carelessly. In many cases, third-party websites distribute software in bundles, which means several apps are compiled into a single installed. Thus, you should never rush the installation, remove all the ticks from pre-ticked checkboxes, and always opt for Advanced/Custom settings instead of Recommended/Quick ones when available.

Eliminate Hsmolarifyre.top notifications for good

If your browser or computer begins to show unexpected ads or notifications, it should always be a cause of concern. That being said, just because you see the desktop pop-ups does not mean that you are infected (although Hsmolarifyre.top removal should be performed as soon as possible). However, it is always wise to check your system for adware or other potentially unwanted programs – you can do that manually as per instructions below, or simply scan the device with powerful anti-malware software, such as SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner or Malwarebytes.

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.
