What is Tomachopan.com?

Tomachopan.com – a website that deceives people into subscribing to ads

Tomachopan.comTomachopan.com is a potentially dangerous website that asks users to enable notifications

Tomachopan.com is a website that people wouldn't visit on purpose. Usually, they are redirected to these types of sites. As soon as it's opened, it urges its visitors to click the Allow button, which would subscribe users to push notifications and allow them to continue watching some imaginary content. When the Allow button is pressed, this push notification virus will start displaying various ads, from banners to pop-ups, sometimes covering the device's whole screen.

Some ads might even be shown when the browser windows are closed, thus popping up directly on your desktop. Tomachopan.com redirects usually promote online gambling and other high-risk sites, which might lead to the installation of potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) or even worse. If you've allowed notifications or clicked on any of the ads, then we will help you resolve the annoying situation easily, as long as you follow guidelines provided in this article. We clarify the dangers of such ads and explain how to eliminate them from all types of devices and browsers.

It's needless to say this website shouldn't be visited, and none of its displayed ads should be trusted and clicked on.

Dangers of push notifications viruses and how to identify them

Push notification viruses are delivered using social engineering tricks. These deceptive techniques urge people to subscribe to notifications in order to display an enormous amount of ads of affiliated third-party sites, which contents might be harmful.

Some websites might ask users to prove that they're not robots by doing a captcha test or similar techniques. In comparison, phony portals might ask to press the Allow button to do that, which immediately infect computers with adware. Other websites might ask to subscribe to their notifications to view some imaginary breaking news or hidden content.

Please remember that legitimate sites would never ask their visitors to allow their notifications in order to see some content. That's done only by websites with bad intentions such as installing adware, browser hijackers,[3] or other PUPs.

How to prevent from getting adware

Protect your privacy – employ a VPN

There are several ways how to make your online time more private – you can access an incognito tab. However, there is no secret that even in this mode, you are tracked for advertising purposes. There is a way to add an extra layer of protection and create a completely anonymous web browsing practice with the help of Private Internet Access VPN. This software reroutes traffic through different servers, thus leaving your IP address and geolocation in disguise. Besides, it is based on a strict no-log policy, meaning that no data will be recorded, leaked, and available for both first and third parties. The combination of a secure web browser and Private Internet Access VPN will let you browse the Internet without a feeling of being spied or targeted by criminals. 

No backups? No problem. Use a data recovery tool

If you wonder how data loss can occur, you should not look any further for answers – human errors, malware attacks, hardware failures, power cuts, natural disasters, or even simple negligence. In some cases, lost files are extremely important, and many straight out panic when such an unfortunate course of events happen. Due to this, you should always ensure that you prepare proper data backups on a regular basis.

If you were caught by surprise and did not have any backups to restore your files from, not everything is lost. Data Recovery Pro is one of the leading file recovery solutions you can find on the market – it is likely to restore even lost emails or data located on an external device.
