What is ads? is a malicious website designed to trick users is a fake website that uses cheap tricks to make people subscribe to push notifications is a suspicious website you might encounter when browsing the web on Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, MS Edge, or another web browser.

Thus, it is important to check whether or not your system is infected with adware[1] or other malicious software before anything else.

As soon as they enter the site, they are caught off guard by seeing the following page elements:

  • A push notification prompt that asks whether push notifications should be enabled;
  • A message, usually accompanied by a thematically matching picture, actively encourages users to click the “Allow” button within the notification prompt.

This scheme is very common for push notification scams – it is used by countless other fake websites, including,,, and many others.

If you agree to the offer, you will immediately allow the site to send you information without restrictions. This means that crooks are able to send you ads at any time, and you won't be able to do anything about it unless you block this access. This article will explain how to do precisely that and how to find and eliminate adware from the system.

Can push notifications be dangerous?

Push notifications are a feature that was first introduced on desktop browsers back in 2015[2] and, since then, has become widely popular. It did not take long for crooks to realize that the feature can be used for ad delivery – all they have to do is make people subscribe to push notifications on a fabricated website.

While many people are familiar with scams like, others might get easily tricked when they are told that they need to verify they aren't bots – this is very similar to legitimate verification processes such as captcha. These social engineering[3] tricks work quite well on less IT-savvy people; they also don't know how to remove these ads due to not being sure of their origins.

Once they accept the request to receive push notifications, they usually only start receiving the unwanted pop-ups sometime later. The push notification from this site might include all sorts of scam links – get rich quick scams, fake virus infection notifications, and similar. It is not recommended to click on these links, as you might infect your system with malware, disclose your personal info, or suffer from financial losses. virusRedirects to scam website might be a sign of adware infection

Adware could be one of the main causes of phishing content encounters

No users visit malicious websites intentionally – unless they are willing to risk it on purpose to receive some type of benefit. For example, torrents, software cracks, and similar websites often host malicious links or invisible scrips with the help of which users are then rerouted to other sites.

Alternatively, adware could be one of the main reasons for unwanted browser redirects. This type of software is spread via suspicious methods, such as software bundling or fake updates, which makes many people unaware of its presence. Thus, if you notice increased ad activity, we strongly recommend you scan your system with SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner or Malwarebytes. It would ensure that all the malicious components are eliminated at once.

After that, you should also take care of your browsers to secure your privacy. Cookies, for example, are used by third parties to track various user data – they can remain even after PUPs are eliminated. You can do this quickly and efficiently with FortectIntego PC repair and maintenance utility, which can also fix crashes, errors, and other issues.

How to prevent from getting adware

Access your website securely from any location

When you work on the domain, site, blog, or different project that requires constant management, content creation, or coding, you may need to connect to the server and content management service more often. The best solution for creating a tighter network could be a dedicated/fixed IP address.

If you make your IP address static and set to your device, you can connect to the CMS from any location and do not create any additional issues for the server or network manager that needs to monitor connections and activities. VPN software providers like Private Internet Access can help you with such settings and offer the option to control the online reputation and manage projects easily from any part of the world.


Recover files after data-affecting malware attacks

While much of the data can be accidentally deleted due to various reasons, malware is one of the main culprits that can cause loss of pictures, documents, videos, and other important files. More serious malware infections lead to significant data loss when your documents, system files, and images get encrypted. In particular, ransomware is is a type of malware that focuses on such functions, so your files become useless without an ability to access them.

Even though there is little to no possibility to recover after file-locking threats, some applications have features for data recovery in the system. In some cases, Data Recovery Pro can also help to recover at least some portion of your data after data-locking virus infection or general cyber infection.
