What is ads? uses fraud to insert ads into your desktop

Seumsiden.onlinePush notifications are not initially malicious but can bring unwanted pop-ups if subscribed to suspicious sites is a malicious website that users could encounter at any time after being redirected from somewhere else. Upon website entry (whether it is Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, MS Edge, or another web browser), users are presented with a pop-up that asks to enable notifications. Typically, there is a background picture or a message presented on the main page and includes information that should convince users that pressing the “Allow” button is necessary for one reason or another.

The authors use various social engineering techniques to deliberately show visitors false statements and make them subscribe to push notifications – a legitimate feature commonly used by various websites. The pop-ups, unfortunately, often include malicious content and direct users to websites that propagate scams or offer download untrustworthy software.

Thus, it is vital not to click on any ads by, as you can easily be tricked into providing personal information, downloading malicious or potentially unwanted software, buy useless services, or lured into fake money-making schemes.[1]

If you have encountered these ads and you have no idea what they are and how to get rid of them, you came to the right place. Below we will provide more details about the scam, ways to avoid it in the future, what needs to be checked on your machine, and how to remove the annoying notifications once and for all.

Type Push notifications, scam, ads
Infiltration Desktop notifications start showing up in particular time intervals after clicking on the “Allow” button upon the site entry
Symptoms Notifications show up at the bottom-right corner of the screen – these include fraudulent content and links to potentially dangerous websites
Dangers Installation of potentially dangerous software, personal data disclosure to cybercriminals, monetary losses
Elimination To prevent the site from displaying notifications, access the site permission section via your web browser settings – we explain how to do that below
Further checks To ensure that no malware or adware is present on the machine, you should scan the device with SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner software that could delete all unwanted programs and files. In case the security software flagged anything suspicious, we also recommend fixing virus damage with tools such as FortectIntego

What are push notifications?

One might instantly assume that there is a virus running in the background after seeing the pop-ups showing at random times, especially when the contents are dubious, to say the least. However, this is not usually the case; it all depends on your personal situation and which programs you have installed.

In essence, push notifications are a browser feature that can be used by any website – and many of them do. This way, publishers can deliver the most relevant information to users who subscribe to receive them. At the same time, many people find this feature rather bothersome, as it is just another step to remove all the unnecessary windows and gain access to the full view of the page.

Cybercriminals became aware of this feature and realized that all they had to do is trick users into subscribing to these notifications. In the meantime, they can use insecure advertisement networks for the maximum profits of affiliate marketing (less secure ad networks often pay more money).

Therefore, crooks started creating web pages that take only a few minutes to compile and started spreading them all over the internet. This is why there are thousands upon thousands of such malicious websites – we previously discussed,,, and many others.

All of them are a copy of each other, and even if the service provider or Google manages to shut them down, new ones emerge regularly. This is why we provide information to users to help them remove the unwanted ads from their systems. Speaking of which, if you are interested in how to remove, follow the instructions we provide in the below sections. uses fake messages to encourage users to click the "Allow" button

How scam works

There are several different versions of the scam you could encounter when dealing with website. One element, which is the push notification prompt itself, is something that never changes – its formulation varies a little depending on the web browser you use.

The second component of the page is the background. It typically includes a simple notification that is meant to encourage you to agree to start receiving these notifications. Here's one of the most popular examples:

Click “Allow” to confirm that you are not a robot.

Crooks use the very familiar authentication feature that is used by many reputable websites. In other cases, you could also see the site imitating captcha verification which is actually can not be interacted with. Other techniques, such as fake videos or fake download prompts are also used.

In any case, if you click Block, you are likely to be redirected to another similar website or end up on the same page. The best thing to do is leave the site immediately. If you were already tricked into clicking the “Allow” button or you did it by accident, you can revert this permission easily.

The adware problem and how to take care of it

It is likely that you have accessed after accidentally clicking on a link somewhere, or you were rerouted via the URL redirect. Redirects, in general, are very common and often used legitimately, although this drastically changes when you are visiting insecure websites, such as torrents, gambling, X-rated, or similar.

Redirects after clicking on links from these sites can lead practically anywhere, and destination websites might include push notification scams, fraudulent messages, fake Flash Player update prompts,[2] and much more. Likewise, browser redirects can also be a sign of adware infection.

Adware is a type of software specializing in the delivery of ads (pop-ups, banners, coupons, discounts, etc.), and redirects can also occur, although this symptom is more common to more aggressive adware. If you see these symptoms while browsing the web and encounter phishing[3] or scam sites regularly, you should definitely check your system for this unwanted software.

The easiest way to remove potentially unwanted programs and malware (which could be running in the background without your knowledge) is by scanning your machine with powerful SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner anti-virus. It will ensure that all the malicious files are deleted, and your system is clean.

Of course, you can eliminate some PUPs manually if you know which app is the culprit of the unwanted activity, although adware is commonly spread via freeware bundles, which warrants stealthy infiltration. In other words, you might not even know that the PUP is installed on your device.

To finish the removal and ensure that your system is running well, you need to clean your web browsers. It is not a secret that potentially unwanted programs collect data via cookies or other tracking technologies, so removing them is mandatory. To clean your web browsers, follow the step-by-step instructions below. Alternatively, you can employ FortectIntego for the job – it will also remediate any system damage that could have been sustained due to PUP or malware infection.

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.
