Stop pop-up ads from appearing ads should be removed by disabling the site's permissions

First, you should know how pages, like are spread on the Internet. The truth is, that they can rarely be found through the search results. Most of the time, people browse through shady pages that are full of deceptive ads, and sneaky redirects.[2] You should abstain from clicking on random links and visiting unknown sites.

A place that users get redirected from quite often is illegal streaming platforms.[3] They are unregulated so they might even be filled with fake “Download” and Play” buttons. When a website like, or opens, people may think that they have to click the “Allow” button to be able to access the movie or TV show they chose to watch.

In reality, these pages do not have any content to explore, except for the deceptive message and picture. A legitimate CAPTCHA[4] verification step should never ask you to choose between “Block” and “Allow” on a browser prompt. Usually, people have to identify certain objects in pictures or simply check a box.

Push notification spam pages can also appear without any user input. This can happen if you are infected by adware. It is a type of PUP that generates commercial content on the machine, like pop-ups, banners, surveys, and redirects. The developers of the program can make a profit from PPC advertising.[5]

To stop pop-up ads from appearing, we recommend going to your browser settings first and trying to disable the permission you gave If that will not work, there is a possibility that adware is hiding in the background.

Clear cookies and cache

The next important step is to clear your browsers. With the help of cookies, websites and web-based applications can gather data like your IP address, geolocation, websites you visit, links you click on, and things you purchase online. This is not necessarily bad. Websites can use this information to personalize the user experience. However, data can also be sold to advertising networks and other third parties.

That is why it is recommended to clear cookies and cache regularly. You can use a maintenance tool like FortectIntego for this task. It can take care of the issue automatically. This software can also fix various system errors and corrupted files which is especially helpful after a virus infection.

Remove potentially unwanted applications

As we mentioned before, the first removal step may not have been effective if you are infected by adware. If you still experience unpleasant symptoms, we urge you to check your system for PUAs. Most of the time, they sneak in through freeware distribution platforms. These websites include bundled software in the installations and hope that most people will not notice.

You should use only official web stores and developer sites for software installations. You should also always choose the “Custom” or “Advanced” installation method, read the Privacy Policy and Terms of Use. The most important step is to check the file list and untick the boxes next to any files that seem unrelated.

Fraudsters often disguise PUPs as “handy” tools so they would be more difficult to identify for the average user. You should deploy SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner or Malwarebytes professional security software that will perform a full system scan and eliminate any PUPs automatically. They can also prevent such infections in the future by warning you about a suspicious download. If you still prefer doing it yourself, here are step-by-step instructions for Windows and macOS:

How to prevent from getting adware

Stream videos without limitations, no matter where you are

There are multiple parties that could find out almost anything about you by checking your online activity. While this is highly unlikely, advertisers and tech companies are constantly tracking you online. The first step to privacy should be a secure browser that focuses on tracker reduction to a minimum.

Even if you employ a secure browser, you will not be able to access websites that are restricted due to local government laws or other reasons. In other words, you may not be able to stream Disney+ or US-based Netflix in some countries. To bypass these restrictions, you can employ a powerful Private Internet Access VPN, which provides dedicated servers for torrenting and streaming, not slowing you down in the process.

Data backups are important – recover your lost files

Ransomware is one of the biggest threats to personal data. Once it is executed on a machine, it launches a sophisticated encryption algorithm that locks all your files, although it does not destroy them. The most common misconception is that anti-malware software can return files to their previous states. This is not true, however, and data remains locked after the malicious payload is deleted.

While regular data backups are the only secure method to recover your files after a ransomware attack, tools such as Data Recovery Pro can also be effective and restore at least some of your lost data.
