What is Notificationstech.com ads?

Notificationstech.com is a malicious website that uses phishing techniques to convince users to allow notifications

Notificationstech.com

Notificationstech.com might show up on your desktop one day unexpectedly, and you might wonder what it is all about and why you are seeing them. The answer to this question is relatively simple – you have allowed push notifications from this website at some point while browsing the web. If you can't remember doing so, it is not surprising, as the techniques used to make people subscribe are nothing more than a scam.

Once the permission is granted, Notificationstech.com is permitted to send any kind of information directly through the API,[1] which is embedded in every modern web browser, including Google Chrome, MS Edge, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, and others. Since the request was provided to scammers, it goes without saying that the information forwarded is not trustworthy and often results in users being exposed to malicious content, for example:

  • Users might be told that they have won an expensive gift, e.g., the newest iPhone, and they need to provide their personal details like a home address and credit card details in order to retrieve it. The goal of it is to make people provide their personal details, which could later be used for other malicious purposes;
  • Get-rich-quick scams[2] are extremely prevalent in push notification scam schemes. The pop-up message usually shows a picture of a local celebrity with their rather unbelievable success story of a small investment, which allegedly resulted in thousands of dollars in profits just a few days or weeks later. Users are getting scammed out of their money in this case;
  • People might be told that their system has been infected with malware, and they need to call a fake tech support line to get help or that they need to download some software to get rid of the infection. The main goal of this scheme is to make users pay for fake services or make them download PUPs/malware on their systems.

Therefore, we strongly recommend you stay away from any content that Notificationstech.com promotes. Otherwise, you might be tricked into providing your sensitive data, losing money to scammers, or infecting your system with malware.

Instead, we recommend ignoring all the information shown within these pop-ups and stopping them with the help of our instructions within the removal section below. Likewise, since those infected with adware are more likely to see various misleading, dangerous websites while browsing the web, checking the system for infection is also a good idea.

Name Notificationstech.com
Type Push notifications, ads, pop-ups, scam
Appearance Desktop notifications start showing up in particular time intervals after clicking on the “Allow” button upon the site entry
Symptoms Pop-up notifications are shown on a desktop at random times
Risks If you click on links provided by the website, you might end up infecting your system with malware/PUPs, disclosing your personal information to cybercriminals, or losing money to useless services
Removal To get rid of notifications, you should access your web browser settings – check the below paragraphs for more information. You should also scan your system with SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner to check for adware and other infections
Additional steps Potentially unwanted programs often leave traces within web browsers – cookies, for example, are used for tracking. You should get rid of these leftovers with ReimageIntego or employ our manual guide

As evident, the internet is very cast, and it hosts over a million websites at any point in time. Some of them might be discontinued and closed down, while others are open up for people to explore. While many sites are created to be useful in one way or another, there are also those that are made for one and only purpose – to scam users in one way or another, making them do something they would not if they would know what is actually going on.

Notificationstech.com is one of many such deceptive sites that uses phishing techniques to mislead users and make them subscribe to push notifications. Rplnd23.com, Desktopnotificationshub.com, or Pushnotmart.com are a few other examples that use the exact same tactics in order to mislead users, which later results in them seeing unwanted pop-up ads on their desktops. Therefore, if you encounter websites that tell you to enable notifications, ignore these requests completely.

Notificationstech.com removal steps

Keep in mind that push notifications are not the same as ads that you see upon entering a website. The former can be shown independently from users' actions, so it does not matter which website you are visiting, the ads will be shown in a pop-up regardless. You might not even be using the browser at the time – as long as it is running, the ads might continue to come up.

Therefore, in order to stop these intrusive pop-ups, you would have to access your browser settings and remove the granted permission to show notifications from Notificationstech.com. Keep in mind that these instructions can also be used for any other website you wish to stop notifications from.

Remove adware and malware

Adware is a type of software that is considered to be unwanted, as it provides minimal (if any) benefits for having it installed, while in return, users have to fake its multiple adverse effects. Its deception starts with distribution – software bundling, fake ads, or updates are commonly used to make people install this software without realizing it.

As soon as it enters the system, the adware can alter browser settings and even change some system files, such as the registry or create scheduled tasks for persistence retention. Adware commonly places cookies and other trackers locally, so these leftover files should be removed as well – you can choose to do that automatically with ReimageIntego or follow the manual guide below.

As for adware[3] removal, we recommend scanning the system with SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner, Malwarebytes, or another powerful security software and then checking the list of the installed programs/extensions. This way, you will ensure that the most dangerous infections, along with minor ones, are eliminated at once.

Once you are sure that all the unwanted and malicious software is gone, you should also take your time cleaning web browsers. The easiest thing to do is use ReimageIntego PC repair and maintenance utility that would effectively find and remove all the leftover files automatically. If you would rather do that manually, please check the guide below.

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.
