What is Ptaimpeerte.com ads?

Ptaimpeerte.com can monetize user activity by spamming them with pop-up ads

Ptaimpeerte.comPtaimpeerte.com does not actually have a video to watch

Ptaimpeerte.com is a bogus website created to monetize user activity with pay-per-click advertising. Crooks use social engineering methods[1] to trick people into subscribing to push notifications. They ask people to press the “Allow” button to continue watching a video.

In reality, there is no other content to explore on the site besides the deceptive image and message. What is more, fraudsters can use rogue advertising networks[2] that place ads leading to dangerous websites. People can end up on scam pages that try to trick them into providing personal information, downloading PUPs (potentially unwanted programs),[3] and malware.

NAME Ptaimpeerte.com
TYPE Push notification spam; adware
SYMPTOMS Pop-up ads start appearing in the corner of the screen after the “Allow” button is pressed
DISTRIBUTION Shady websites, deceptive ads, redirects, freeware installations
DANGERS Links embedded in the push notifications can lead to dangerous websites where users can be tricked into providing their personal information and suffer from monetary losses
ELIMINATION Users can block push notifications via browser settings
FURTHER STEPS It is recommended to use a repair tool like ReimageIntego after the removal to fix any remaining damage

Distribution methods

Push notification spam pages, like Ptaimpeerte.com rarely appear in the search results. Usually, they hide on other shady sites that are unregulated. For example, illegal streaming sites[4] are full of deceptive ads and sneaky redirects. If users are looking for a movie or TV show to watch illegally, they can be fooled by fake “Download” or “Play” buttons[5] and be redirected to pop-up spam pages that use social engineering.

It is best to only visit websites that you know and trust. Do not click on random links or ads even if they seem to be promoting legitimate products or services. Use official streaming services, like Netflix or Prime Video as they require only a small monthly subscription fee, and they are completely safe to use.

Clear your browsers

After an encounter with such a website, it is strongly recommended to clear your browsers. Websites and web-based applications can use various tracking technologies to collect data like your IP address, geolocation, websites you visit, links you click on, and things you purchase online. All of this is done with the use of cookies and cache.

These small data files are not inherently bad. Legitimate sites use them to personalize the user experience by showing relevant results, etc. However, they can also be used to generate revenue by selling them to advertising networks, and other third parties. There is an automatic solution to this problem – ReimageIntego. This powerful software can stop the tracking and delete the existing information, as well as fix serious system errors with a click of a button.

Scan your system for adware

Unwanted browser behavior can also be caused by PUPs. Sometimes pages like Ptaimpeerte.com show up without any user input at all. This can be caused by adware which is a program that can generate commercial content in the machine without the users' knowledge. Many of them are disguised as “handy” tools so they would be more difficult to identify for average users.

That is why having professional security tools like SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner and Malwarebytes is essential. A PC without an antivirus is like a home without a door. Anti-malware solutions can scan the machine and detect suspicious processes running in the background.

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.
