Ncontentdelivery.info is a push notification virus that can endanger online safety

Ncontentdelivery.info virus
Ncontentdelivery.info is an unsafe site that urges users to allow notifications

Ncontentdelivery.info is a potentially dangerous website that asks users to allow notifications to be shown in order to view the content. However, as soon as users agree, their browsers (Google Chrome, Safari, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc.) are continually spammed with pop-up ads, banners, coupons, and similar intrusive advertisement. In recent months, there has been multiple of such deceptive sites developed, including Pcontentdelivery.info, Tionsnewsupdate.infoMotheremutand.info, and many others. All of them look identical and rely on users to allow the push notifications to be enabled. Redirects to Ncontentdelivery.info are usually caused by adware – a potentially unwanted program that sneaked into the Windows or Mac operating systems unnoticed and needs to be eliminated as soon as possible. According to Alexa rankings,[1] the Ncontentdelivery.info domain is mostly targeting Indian, Japanese, Angolan and Saudi Arabian netizens.

Ncontentdelivery.info and similar sites are bugging people on all platforms, including iPhone and Android users. While there is a chance that no adware is injected into these devices, it is crucial to remove Ncontentdelivery.info push notifications as explained below.

However, if you see Ncontentdelivery.info redirects often while browsing the internet, it is highly likely due to adware. Initially not that dangerous, these potentially unwanted programs can perform numerous tasks that certainly do not benefit the computer user:

  • Redirect to sponsored, phishing, scam, hacked, or similar unsafe websites;
  • Display multiple advertisements that cover the content of ad-free sites; 
  • Change web browser settings;
  • Run background processes;
  • Inject additional components, such as toolbars, add-ons, and similar;
  • Track (personal) data, etc.

While the unsafe redirect from Ncontentdelivery.info can bring you to a malware-infested website, the continual spying on you does not provide anything useful either. In most cases, adware uses tracking cookies, beacons and JavaScripts to harvest most valuable marketing data about users, including their IP address, sites visited, links clicked, duration of the visit, and similar. That is why users are advised to clear their browser cache and cookies once in a while.

Finally, we recommend you proceed with Ncontentdelivery.info removal as explained below. After you eliminate adware and reset your browsers, scan your machine with Reimage – it is an excellent tool that can bring your computer back to normal after the infection.

Software bundling – the questionable marketing technique that received much criticism from security specialists

Software bundling is a well-established PUP distribution technique and is widely used by shareware and freeware developers. Unfortunately, users do not benefit from it, as they get stuck with unwanted programs that continually slow down their PC and disturb internet browsing and other online activities.

Bundling supporters are obviously the ones that apply it, and, unfortunately, it is not illegal. There are all sorts of junk programs bundled – it can sometimes even include malware like trojans or rootkits.[2] Therefore, it is vital to pay attention to the installation process, no matter where the installer itself is coming from (although using official sources will significantly reduce the chance of malicious software being included).

Thus, experts[3] advise being attentive when installing new applications. Never rush through steps, read the installation manual carefully, check if appropriate documents are provided (Terms and Conditions, Privacy policy) and ALWAYS pick Advanced/Custom settings when prompted. Using Recommended/Quick settings might save you ten seconds, but might result in hours of headaches afterward.
