What is Pashkahome.com ads?

Pashkahome.com is a dubious site created by crooks to generate revenue from spam

Pashkahome.comPush notification spam may promote scams that take advantage of people

Pashkahome.com is a fake website created by scammers to make money off of unsuspecting people. They use social engineering[1] tricks to get users to subscribe to push notifications, making them believe that they need to click on the “Allow” button to prove they're not robots.

If they fall for this, they become subscribed to push notifications and start getting spammy pop-up ads that may appear even when the browser is closed. Sometimes these ad networks are operated by fraudsters who place ads leading to dangerous websites.

Unfortunately, by clicking on the embedded links, people can easily come across sites that are created for the illegal purpose of stealing personal information. These types of sites usually have a fake message or image in order to trick people into downloading PUPs (potentially unwanted programs),[2] or malware onto their devices. We strongly suggest disabling any pop-ups from this page immediately.

Distribution methods

Usually, people find Pashkahome.com while they are looking at other websites that break the law, for example, illegal streaming sites.[3] These unregulated pages are often full of ads that mislead viewers and redirect them to different pages without their permission.

In certain situations, the prevalence of scam pages is a result of adware. Adware is software that generates commercial content, such as pop-ups, banners, and redirects. It often operates without the user's knowledge. It is mostly spread through freeware distribution platforms.

ReimageIntego is a great maintenance tool that makes it easy to do this, as well as fix various system errors, corrupted files, and registry issues. This software is especially helpful after a virus infection.

Adware removal

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.
