ads (Free Guide) ads Removal Guide

What is ads? is a scam website that encourages users to enable push notifications to show ads later is a malicious website that might initiate intrusive ads is a fake website created by unfair individuals in order to proliferate malicious ads directly to users' screens. After being tricked into subscribing, users would later start seeing suspicious pop-ups showing up on the bottom or top right of their screens.

These notifications include misleading content, including fake virus infection messages, fraudulent giveaways, and more. When interacting with content promoted by, users risk disclosing their personal information to unknown sources, installing potentially unwanted or malicious software, or losing money to fake services.

How the scam convinces people to subscribe

It is evident that not many users would intentionally compromise their online tine with intrusive ads coming out of nowhere. There is a whole scheme that crooks operate in order to make users subscribe to these push notifications, however, and it starts with a suspicious redirect from another website – after clicking a booby-trapped link or encountering a malicious script. Unexpected redirect ads to the element of surprise, which works very well with phishing[1] content, as the more off guard people are caught, the more likely they are to make mistakes.

Upon entering site, users are immediately presented with a message which might initially seem quite innocent and would look like something that they have previously seen. For example, users might see something similar to captcha verification or that they need to confirm their age:

  • Press “Allow” to watch the video
  • Click Allow to start downloading
  • If you are 18+, click Allow
  • Click “Allow” to win a prize and get it in our shop!
  • Click Allow to confirm that you are not a robot

Obviously, these messages are fabricated, and their only goal is to make people click the “Allow” button within the notification prompt. Once people do, nothing much happens, and they usually forget about the ordeal. Only later would users start seeing ads, which they would be surprised about. These exact techniques are used by thousands of other websites, including,,, and many others. scamPush notification scam sites are extremely common

Check your device for adware

While in most cases, users would get redirected to and similar malicious websites after clicking on some fake link, it is also possible that adware installed on the device is causing these redirects. Adware is a type of software considered to be deceptive – it spreads using dubious methods and then inserts intrusive ads everywhere users go. Adware also commonly fails to provide many useful features that were initially promised, and ads become its main trait.

In order to check your system and ensure it is free from adware, you should scan it with SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner, Malwarebytes, or another powerful security software. This can also remove any other malicious programs that would otherwise remain undetected. Anti-malware is also your main tool to repel attacks of devastating malware, including ransomware.[2]

Finally, you should perform a scan with FortectIntego to clean your browsers from trackers and the system from leftover files. Malware can cause serious system damage, later causing system crashes, errors, and other issues.

Remove push notifications

Many users, upon seeing suspicious pop-up ads on their screens, automatically assume that their systems are infected – and it's understandable why some would come to this conclusion. Shown ads within push notifications from scam sites commonly include misleading statements, show get-rich-quick schemes[3] claim that users won some expensive gifts, and similar.

Usually, malicious ads do come from some type of infection; it is not the case here and this is why scanning the system with security software would not help here. Since one accepts notifications via the prompt, the cancellation should be made via the settings menu as explained 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.
