What is Newadsfit.com ads?

Newadsfit.com is a fake website that uses a notification feature to push malicious ads to users

Newadsfit.comNewadsfit.com is a fake website you shouldn't trust

Newadsfit.com is a bogus website built by scammers to influence users' behavior that can hurt them in the long term. To be more specific, it specializes in tricking them into believing that the push notification prompt on a website's entry is of a different purpose – plenty of phishing messages are used to convince them that the “Allow” button should be pressed. If it is approved, the website will be able to continuously show intrusive pop-up windows while the browser is open or running in the background. The links and ads are often of dubious nature and can lead users to malicious places.

While the Newadsfit.com ads themselves are not a direct outcome of adware[1] or malware infection, the activity can certainly be related to it. The affected users are much more likely to encounter dangerous sites while browsing the web, so it is recommended to check the device thoroughly. That being said, the most likely cause of visiting scam sites remains link clicks in places like peer-to-peer networks or illegal video streaming services.

Name Newadsfit.com
Type Push notifications, ads, pop-ups, scam
Distribution The suspicious pop-ups can only start showing up after the “Allow” button is pressed within the notification prompt upon site entry
Symptoms Notifications show up at the bottom-right corner of the screen – these include fraudulent content and links to potentially dangerous websites
Risks Shown pop-ups incorporate fake notices and push scams. Links can also lead to websites filled with malware
Removal Push notifications can be stopped by blocking the web address of the malicious website via browser settings. Checking the device with SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner, Malwarebytes security software is also recommended
Other tips You should remove caches and other web data after eliminating adware to prevent data tracking with the ReimageIntego recovery tool. You can also repair damaged system components with it

Fake messages

There are a variety of messages that crooks use in order to mislead users into subscribing to push notifications from nefarious websites. Quite often, they are based on messages that users previously had encountered on legitimate websites, such as confirming their age or that they are indeed human. Here are a few examples of fakes that may convince some users to accept notification prompts from Newadsfit.com:

  • If you are 18+, click Allow
  • Click Allow to confirm you are not a robot
  • Just one more step! “Allow” to continue
  • Your file is ready to download. Press Allow to continue
  • Click Allow to win a prize and get it in our shop!

These messages can be picked at random when accessing a push notification scam site, and they will always be accompanied by a matching background image. For example, the message with alleged human verification would show an image of a robot and a human nearby.

Newadsfit.com scamNewadsfit.com asks whether users are robots only to make people click the "Allow" button within notification prompt

Dangers of push notifications from phishing sites

Users may be tricked into accepting push notifications from malicious websites, which causes them to assume that they appeared out of the blue. However, whether intentionally or unintentionally, you must have consented to it if you have spotted the unusual Newadsfit.com pop-ups.

No matter whether the browser is in use or merely running in the background, notifications may appear at any time while it is running. Likewise, the websites that users visit at the time can be completely unrelated to the URL in question. The activity usually manifests as pop-ups showing up at the top-right or bottom-right corner of the screen, depending on the operating system used.

The worst thing is that users may be exposed to various kinds of harmful content through Newadsfit.com ads. For example, they can come across a get-rich-quick scam[2] message that promises users can make thousands of dollars working from home if they make a little upfront payment. People lose the money they invested as a result since no job offers subsequently came in.

Users could also come across notifications that suggest their computers have been infected and that security software has to be installed in order to resolve the issue – the operation of these closely resembles tech support scams. As a result, people become infected with adware or other potentially unwanted/harmful software.

Adware checks to make

While most individuals visit Newadsfit.com after following links on a questionable website, there are other instances where this could occur. One of the most frequent causes for users to come across questionable or hazardous content online is adware, a kind of potentially unwanted software.

Adware's primary objective is to expose people to as much commercial material as possible, which can obnoxiously interrupt normal browsing sessions with pop-ups, banners, discounts, offers, and other ads. More aggressive adware may not cause symptoms while maintaining background connections to remote servers, earning money for hackers.

You should examine the installed applications on your device to look for adware. Adware can be deployed as browser extensions or as system-level programs. You may follow the steps below, or you could choose a quicker and more trustworthy option – scanning the system using SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner or Malwarebytes security software, which will eliminate all the viruses for you. ReimageIntego can be used to get rid of cookies[3] and other web data to prevent tracking and fix any damage caused by viruses.

How to prevent from getting adware

Choose a proper web browser and improve your safety with a VPN tool

Online spying has got momentum in recent years and people are getting more and more interested in how to protect their privacy online. One of the basic means to add a layer of security – choose the most private and secure web browser. Although web browsers can't grant full privacy protection and security, some of them are much better at sandboxing, HTTPS upgrading, active content blocking, tracking blocking, phishing protection, and similar privacy-oriented features. However, if you want true anonymity, we suggest you employ a powerful Private Internet Access VPN – it can encrypt all the traffic that comes and goes out of your computer, preventing tracking completely.

 

Lost your files? Use data recovery software

While some files located on any computer are replaceable or useless, others can be extremely valuable. Family photos, work documents, school projects – these are types of files that we don't want to lose. Unfortunately, there are many ways how unexpected data loss can occur: power cuts, Blue Screen of Death errors, hardware failures, crypto-malware attack, or even accidental deletion.

To ensure that all the files remain intact, you should prepare regular data backups. You can choose cloud-based or physical copies you could restore from later in case of a disaster. If your backups were lost as well or you never bothered to prepare any, Data Recovery Pro can be your only hope to retrieve your invaluable files.
