What is Notificationsworld.com ads?

Notificationsworld.com asks if you are a robot to later send you intrusive ads

Notificationsworld.comNotificationsworld.com is a scam website that you should not trust

Notificationsworld.com ads might start showing up on your screen unexpectedly – regardless if you are watching a video, checking email, or browsing your favorite social media website. Thousands of users have observed this suspicious phenomenon, and many tend to immediately believe that their systems are infected with malware.

While it is true that adware or other malicious software could be the cause one encounters various suspicious content (along with ads) online, this behavior is not a direct result of an infection but rather user permission to show notifications that were given at some point before. If you don't remember encountering Notificationsworld.com at all, it is not surprising.

The scheme revolves around making users click the “Allow” button within the notification prompt shown right after the malicious website is accessed. The trick is that people are presented with a misleading statement about why they should do it. After that, nothing much happens – apart from redirects to other malicious places – so many tend to forget the occurrence in the first place.

Name Notificationsworld.com
Type Push notifications, ads, scam, pop-ups
Distribution The website gains access to deliver information as soon as the “Allow” button is pressed within the push notification prompt
Symptoms Push notifications show on the desktop at random time intervals. These pop-ups show fake notices and push scams. Links can also lead to malware-laden sites
Risks Various security problems due to exposure to scams, monetary losses, system infections, etc.
Removal To prevent the site from displaying notifications to you, access the site permission section via your web browser settings – you can find more details below. We also recommend checking the system for adware with SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner security software
Other tips Make sure you clean your browsers after you delete PUPs from the system. To do that automatically, you can use ReimageIntego

Scam message examples

Users do not willingly subscribe to push notifications from suspicious websites but are rather tricked into doing it. Since the push notification feature is not fully understood by many, crooks attempt to portray it as it is used for something entirely different, e.g., to confirm that users are not bots. These are a few examples of messages you might expect after entering the Notificationsworld.com scam site:

  • Please tap Allow to continue
  • Click “Allow” to start downloading
  • Click Allow if you are not a robot
  • Click “Allow” button to subscribe to push notifications and continue watching
  • Click “Allow” to win a prize and get it in our shop!

These messages are not unique by any means, as there are thousands of websites that use identical tactics (News-ropaki.cc, Computeradz.com, Pushnow.net, and many others).

Dangers of Notificationsworld.com ads

One of the most dangerous aspects of push notification scams is that they can be used to expose users to all sorts of malicious materials. Ads delivered by scam websites are suspicious and misleading because their authors choose insecure advertising networks, which generally pay well.

It is vital you do not interact with any material shown within pop-ups. Here are a few examples of what you could be exposed to:

  • Get-rich-quick[1] schemes manifest themselves in telling a fake story of some local celebrity that managed to get rich within weeks or days by investing a small sum in the promoted offer. These pages include fake testimonies of fake Facebook accounts and forged bank statements.
  • Fake virus infection prompts show users that their systems have been infected with viruses and that security software needs to be downloaded to eradicate them. Alternatively, fake tech support numbers might be shown.
  • Links to insecure websites can be of any content, including of sexual nature. These websites might not only be offensive but may also cause security issues.

Remove the annoying pop-ups

Many users might assume that their systems are infected after seeing suspicious pop-ups on their screens. All things considered, it doesn't take long to realize why: ads of dubious origin are commonly associated with adware[2] or other infections. In this case, however, adware is not causing these issues.

Adware removal

Push notifications can only be stopped after blocking the malicious website sending them, hence security software would not be able to help here. However, it would be a great help when determining whether or not your system is infected, as adware is one of the main reasons users get exposed to Notificationsworld.com and similar scams.

While adware could be removed manually, it is not always possible without advanced IT knowledge. For example, malware and some types of aggressive adware might not show any active windows, hide their processes, and not be visible within the installed application or extension list. Persistence mechanisms might also prevent you from removing it.

Therefore, we recommend performing a full system scan with SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner, Malwarebytes, or another powerful anti-malware software. After that, we recommend removing cookies[3] and other web data to ensure that no unwanted tracking is taking place – use ReimageIntego for that or follow the instructions listed below.

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.
