What are push notifications, and how do they work?

Just like any other feature, a push notification API was developed for legitimate purposes. For example, a news website may ask people whether they want to receive notifications, so they can be informed about the latest happenings – it draws their attention much quicker. This is also beneficial for the website as well, since the engagement and popularity increase.

It turned out that most users aren't that fond of push notifications in general, as most of these requests remain unaccepted (99% of them, as per Mozilla's findings)n[3] and understandably so. The fact that the website can send a pop-up at any time can be considered rather intrusive.

Troubles begin, however, when users accept push notifications from websites such as,,,, and similar ones. Since they are usually tricked into subscribing, they aren't quite sure what they are dealing with, hence removal becomes a problem.

To make the picture clear, these are a few examples that you may encounter after accessing a push notification scam site (most of them don't even bother to create something original and reuse the same pictures and phrases):

  • Click “Allow” to start downloading
  • If you are 18+, click Allow
  • Press “Allow” to verify, that you are not a robot
  • Please tap Allow to continue
  • Click “Allow” to win the prize and get it in our shop! scam"Confirm you are not a robot" is one of the most commonly used tricks in scam schemes like these

All of these messages are misleading at best and straight-out deceptive at worst. Crooks behind the scam attempt to mimic legitimate requests users previously encountered, for example, whenever they need to confirm that they are human or that they are above 18. ads removal and adware check

Redirects to most frequently occur when users click a link on some high-risk website or are taken away by a malicious script. For example, torrents and similar sites that distribute pirated software installers are well known for such behavior. Therefore, if you want to avoid being redirected to malicious sites, you should never visit websites of dubious nature in the first place. An effective ad-blocker can also prevent some unexpected redirects and intrusive ads.

In other cases, people might not be visiting suspicious websites and still end up on a scam site – this usually happens when adware is involved. This potentially unwanted software is known for its ability to deliver intrusive advertisements and make users visit potentially dangerous websites. Therefore, your first task should be to eliminate the root cause and delete adware and other malware from your system.

The easiest way to do so is by scanning your system with SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner, Malwarebytes, or another powerful anti-malware software.

How to prevent from getting adware

Do not let government spy on you

The government has many issues in regards to tracking users' data and spying on citizens, so you should take this into consideration and learn more about shady information gathering practices. Avoid any unwanted government tracking or spying by going totally anonymous on the internet. 

You can choose a different location when you go online and access any material you want without particular content restrictions. You can easily enjoy internet connection without any risks of being hacked by using Private Internet Access VPN.

Control the information that can be accessed by government any other unwanted party and surf online without being spied on. Even if you are not involved in illegal activities or trust your selection of services, platforms, be suspicious for your own security and take precautionary measures by using the VPN service.

Backup files for the later use, in case of the malware attack

Computer users can suffer from data losses due to cyber infections or their own faulty doings. Ransomware can encrypt and hold files hostage, while unforeseen power cuts might cause a loss of important documents. If you have proper up-to-date backups, you can easily recover after such an incident and get back to work. It is also equally important to update backups on a regular basis so that the newest information remains intact – you can set this process to be performed automatically.

When you have the previous version of every important document or project you can avoid frustration and breakdowns. It comes in handy when malware strikes out of nowhere. Use Data Recovery Pro for the data restoration process.
