What is Ukentaspe.xyz ads?

Ukentaspe.xyz attempts to mislead users into subscribing to push notifications and redirects to malicious websites

Ukentaspe.xyzUkentaspe.xyz is a scam website that attempts to earn revenue from malicious ads

Ukentaspe.xyz is just one of the thousands of push notification scam sites on the world wide web. Created by scammers, it attempts to use various misleading messages to make people click the “Allow” button within the prompt, which is shown at the top of the page right after entry. Some confused users may get tricked and do as they are told, which would result in them starting to see strange pop-ups shown directly on their screens.

If you see suspicious Ukentaspe.xyz ads on your desktop, we recommend you don't interact with them. Quite often, fake websites like this one also engage in showing misleading or malicious links, where people may get tricked into subscribing to even more spam, wasting money on useless services, or even installing malware on their systems.

Name Ukentaspe.xyz
Type Push notifications, ads, scam
Distribution Intrusive pop-ups can start showing up at some point after the “Allow” button is pressed within the notification prompt
Symptoms Pop-ups show up on a regular basis on the screen – these ads often include inappropriate, scam, phishing, or other similar content
Risks Push notification prompts might include links to malicious websites, resulting in financial losses, personal information disclosure, or malware infections
Removal You can disable the push notifications from any website via browser settings. Scanning the system with SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner can also ensure that it's clean and secure

The scam scheme explained

Once users are redirected, they commonly don't expect to see what they do; in other words, they are caught off guard, which makes them more likely to make mistakes or proceed without thinking much about the happenings on the screen. This is one of the main reasons why Ukentaspe.xyz and similar scams are so successful, although there is more to it.

Even those who do pay attention to what is happening might be tricked by social engineering[1] tricks used by scammers. The main goal for them is to make visitors believe that the “Allow” button within the push notification prompt is designed for something entirely different – such as an age check or a human verification check. Check out these message examples you may encounter when visiting one of the push notification scam sites (these may vary on the same site):

  • Please tap Allow button to continue
  • To access the video, click “Allow”
  • Click Allow if you are not a robot
  • If you are 18+, tap Allow
  • Click “Allow” to win a prize and get it in our shop!

Even though it may seem like it a simple verification similar to a captcha that so many users encounter on various websites every day, it is not the case. In other cases, crooks attempt to make people believe that there is some type of underlying content on the page, which is not the case – those interacting with it would simply be forwarded to another malicious website, such as Ads4pc.com, News-guguho.cc, or Dryheataffilate.store.

The important system checks to make

While you might have gotten rid of the annoying Ukentaspe.xyz push notifications by following the instructions shown above, your job is not yet finished if you want to secure your device properly. While security software can not remove push notifications, what it does well is finding and removing adware and other malicious software that could be hiding on your device.

Adware is a type of potentially unwanted program that can be running in the background without you even knowing anything about it. The reason for this is because of its distribution methods – it uses fake updates or deceptive freeware[2] bundle installers to spread. Also, if you have noticed that you have been forced to see more phishing material along with intrusive ads while you browse the web, checking the system is extremely important.

To do this, we recommend you run a scan with SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner, Malwarebytes, or another powerful anti-malware software and then employ ReimageIntego to clean browser caches for better privacy. Otherwise, trackers such as cookies[3] may remain on the browser for years, continuing user tracking activities. If you would rather perform adware elimination manually, use the instructions below.

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.
