Time2notification.com is the adware-type program that shows up on the machine out of nowhere and diminishes users' time online. Visiting this site once or twice can be harmless and exiting the browser should help to avoid cyber infiltration. However, constant redirects to this or any similar website and additional symptoms regarding the intrusive commercial content indicates the potentially unwanted program luring on the system. Time2notification.com redirect displays “Age verification page” and encourages people to click the “Allow” button on the pop-up. Once you agree to this content and additional notifications, the program automatically starts showing various commercial content and often directly on the desktop when the browser is closed. This is why Time2notification.com push notifications virus got this name. To end this frustrating behavior, you need a thorough system clean.

Time2notification.com is the cyber infection that uses social engineering strategies to trick users into subscribing to push notifications.[2] This way the program can continuously send unwanted advertisements directly to your screen and deliver more questionable content.

This potentially unwanted program is similar to other rogue sites that only deliver notifications and redirects to other sites like Time2notification.com. Adware-type cyber threats have many symptoms in common and often relates the same commercial sponsor, so be aware that you may encounter redirect to sites like Apushnotification.comLuckypushh.comPush Why virus, or Lythenheckwo.info

Remember that besides all the online traffic redirecting and commercial content delivering, Time2notification.com can:

  • install unwanted content;
  • add browser extensions;
  • download toolbars or bookmarks;
  • track data regarding your online activity.

The latter is the biggest issue regarding these advertisement-based cyber threats because all the information about your online habits, location, IP addresses, most viewed and visited sites lead to more personalized ads and more malicious content. Unfortunately, this behavior can also lead to privacy issues.

You should remove Time2notification.com as soon as the intrusive behavior starts, so the program hasn't affected any crucial parts of the machine yet. This PUP can alter Windows registry keys and make the process running on the background continuously. 

The best recommendation from experts[3] is to employ professional tools for malware elimination when performing Time2notification.com removal. Anti-malware tools can indicate PUPs and even more significant threats and help to delete them once and for all. 

Also, make sure to clean the browsers as well as the whole system. For that, you should Block notifications from Time2notification.com or any similar sites. You can do that by:

  • Go to your browser and locate the Advanced settings.
  • You should find the Privacy & Security section and manage to get to the Content/Site settings block.
  • Find Notifications or Permissions section.
  • Block or Remove all the suspicious sites from the list that appears.

Unwanted apps come to the system without permission 

You can find various deceptive advertisements online that offer tools, features, applications, and other content. However, clicking on those pop-up ads can lead to the automatic download of the unwanted tool or application.

Also, PUP developers often include their products on freeware installations and this way programs get bundled together and distributed without users' permission or knowledge. Information about these additional applications is not disclosed, especially when you use Default or Quick options during the installation process.

So go for Advanced or Custom installations and make sure to de-select programs from the list when you get to see all included applications. Keeping the antivirus tool on the system can also help to block rogue sites before visiting them.
