What is Orbetterpositiesa.info?

Orbetterpositiesa.info is a suspicious site that seeks to make users subscribe to unwanted push notifications

Orbetterpositiesa.infoOrbetterpositiesa.info is an unsafe website that asks users to allow notifications to be shown in order to display intrusive ads

Orbetterpositiesa.info is a push notification virus that users may encounter due to various reasons, one of the primary ones being adware infection. In other cases, they might simply stumble upon the site by accident, after being redirected from somewhere else on the internet (usually from shady places like torrents or porn sites).

As soon as users end up on the site, Orbetterpositiesa.info uses social engineering techniques in order to make users allow the notifications to be shown on Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, or another browser. Typically, users are tricked by a promised underlying content, such as a video. Once they agree for the notifications to be shown, however, users are spammed with Orbetterpositiesa.info ads directly on their screens, regardless of the browser is operational.

If clicking on suspicious links, users might end up installing other potentially unwanted programs (in addition to adware that might be the reason for Orbetterpositiesa.info virus disruptions in the first place) or malware, disclose sensitive information to unsafe parties/cybercriminals or lose their money after subscribing to useless services. Besides, potentially unwanted programs like adware often collect various web browsing data and share it with third-parties for profits.

Name Orbetterpositiesa.info
Type Push notification virus, scam
Possible infections Those who constantly are being redirected to scam and similar sites are highly likely infected with adware
Infiltration Push notifications can appear on users' desktop as soon as they click allow on the notification prompt. Adware can often be downloaded during the installation process of freeware acquired from third-party websites
Symptoms Unwanted ads on all visited websites, changed web browser settings, slow operation of the browser, redirects to malicious sites, promotional links and ads from Orbetterpositiesa.info and/or other sites, etc.
Termination Download and install security software or follow our manual removal guide below
Recovery If your system was infected with adware, you should take extra measures to recover from it – scan your machine for system errors with FortectIntego and reset all the installed browsers

While adware on itself is not considered to be malicious as it does not intercept or change the system operation, it can expose users to a variety of risks, especially if they are unaware of what they are dealing with. For example, those who were redirected to Orbetterpositiesa.info by adware and also agreed to notifications to be shown are at double risk of unsafe content exposure.

In most of the cases, those who are affected by Orbetterpositiesa.info adware would start seeing some or all of these signs and symptoms:

  • Advertisements show up on all the websites that they visit;
  • Occasional or frequent redirects lead to phishing, scam, fake update, or similar sites;
  • Additional applications or browser extensions installed without permission;
  • Web browser performance decreased;
  • Homepage, new tab URL and the search engine altered;
  • Search results are filled with sponsored links.

Without a doubt, users should never click on Orbetterpositiesa.info links that are shown regularly and get rid of adware or other potentially unwanted programs that might reside on the system. This can be done automatically with anti-malware software or by following our manual instructions below. If not PUPs are present on the computer, users can remove Orbetterpositiesa.info notifications by accessing browser settings.

Orbetterpositiesa.info is abusing a useful browser feature of push notifications, which was first introduced by Google in 2013 – users could accept notifications from websites they are interested in and would receive news directly on their screens.

Orbetterpositiesa.info adsOrbetterpositiesa.info is a website which might indicate adware infection

However, while useful in theory, this feature is generally disliked by most, and malicious actors started to abuse it to proliferate malicious links to users. All they have to do is bring users to specially crafted sites – like Orbetterpositiesa.info and trick them into allowing notifications to be shown. One of the messages that users may encounter states that they need to enable notifications in order to “continue browsing.” However, as soon as they click “Allow,” no content will be presented, and they will be shown unending Orbetterpositiesa.info ads directly on screens.

For Orbetterpositiesa.info removal, refer to the bottom section of this article. You should also make sure that adware is not involved – if so, we advise getting rid of the PUP either manually or automatically and then resetting all the browsers, as well as scanning the machine with FortectIntego for best results.

Freeware and shareware from third-party sites might bring your computer in trouble

Nowadays, there are millions of applications and browser extensions that can be enjoyed by users, and most of them are available on official stores, including Microsoft Store, Google Play, App Store, etc. Therefore, there is little to no reason for visiting third-party sites for software downloads. Nevertheless, websites like Download.com, Softonic.com, and multiple others acquire thousands of visitors daily – it is not surprising that file-sharing sites are extremely popular, as they allow both parties to monetize, and also provide a freeware scheme.

However, there are thousands of apps that were not approved by official stores due to multiple reasons, one of them being security. While freeware is generally safe (it will not lock your personal files or steal your credit card details), it might bring you to places where you could get infected with malware, which is capable of such things. Therefore, if you choose to download apps from third-parties, better be safe doing it:

  • Before installing anything, check out user reviews and blog posts online;
  • During the installation, make sure the app provides necessary documents like Terms and Conditions, Privacy Policy, etc.;
  • When prompted, always opt for Advanced/Custom installation settings instead of Recommended/Quick ones;
  • Remove ticks from pre-ticked boxes and watch out for misleading deals, misplaced buttons, fine print text, and similar tricks used by freeware installers;
  • Employ anti-malware that can detect and prevent the installation of potentially unwanted programs.

Orbetterpositiesa.info ads removal should not be difficult

One of the main reasons why Orbetterpositiesa.info pop-ups are a great problem for users is because they are unaware of why and how they see these ads. In other words, they are not familiar with the push notification feature that was first introduced years ago. Thanks to that, malicious actors can ensure that people keep seeing ads, and they are earning profits from it. Thankfully, Mozilla Firefox will disable push notification prompts by default, so users will no longer be asked in the first place – hopefully, other browsers like the immensely popular Google Chrome will follow to prevent Orbetterpositiesa.info and similar sites from abusing the feature.

To remove Orbetterpositiesa.info notifications, you should follow these instructions:

Google Chrome

  • Pick Menu > Settings
  • Choose Advanced
  • Under Privacy and security, select Site Settings > Notifications
  • Find Orbetterpositiesa.info entry under Allow
  • Click More Actions and then go for Block

Mozilla Firefox:

  • Select Menu > Options
  • Pick Privacy & Security section and then go for Notifications
  • Click Settings – you should see Orbetterpositiesa.info entry
  • Click on the the drop-down menu and select Block
  • Save Changes

MS Edge:

  • Pick More > Settings
  • Choose View advanced settings
  • Click Advanced
  • Click Manage permissions
  • Locate Orbetterpositiesa.info and turn off notifications


  • Select Safari > Preferences…
  • Under Websites tab, pick Notifications
  • Select Orbetterpositiesa.info and then choose Deny

However, if redirects and other unwanted activity does not subside, it means that your machine is infected with adware. In such a case, get rid of unwanted programs as per instructions below, scan your computer with anti-malware and then reset all the installed browsers.

How to prevent from getting adware

Choose a proper web browser and improve your safety with a VPN tool

Online spying has got momentum in recent years and people are getting more and more interested in how to protect their privacy online. One of the basic means to add a layer of security – choose the most private and secure web browser. Although web browsers can't grant full privacy protection and security, some of them are much better at sandboxing, HTTPS upgrading, active content blocking, tracking blocking, phishing protection, and similar privacy-oriented features. However, if you want true anonymity, we suggest you employ a powerful Private Internet Access VPN – it can encrypt all the traffic that comes and goes out of your computer, preventing tracking completely.


Lost your files? Use data recovery software

While some files located on any computer are replaceable or useless, others can be extremely valuable. Family photos, work documents, school projects – these are types of files that we don't want to lose. Unfortunately, there are many ways how unexpected data loss can occur: power cuts, Blue Screen of Death errors, hardware failures, crypto-malware attack, or even accidental deletion.

To ensure that all the files remain intact, you should prepare regular data backups. You can choose cloud-based or physical copies you could restore from later in case of a disaster. If your backups were lost as well or you never bothered to prepare any, Data Recovery Pro can be your only hope to retrieve your invaluable files.
