What is Webnotificationservices.com ads?

Webnotificationservices.com ads should never be clicked on – you may end up on malicious websites

Webnotificationservices.comWebnotificationservices.com is a fake website that does not have any content

Webnotificationservices.com ads might be an unexpected occurrence on your phone or the computer, although you are definitely not the only one surprised by them. Many users have reported that they started seeing suspicious pop-ups showing up on their screens randomly, regardless of which websites they were visiting at the time. To make matters worse, these ad windows are shown at the top of all other apps running on the system at the time, making the activity intrusive.

If you are dealing with this situation, you must have enabled push notifications from Webnotificationservices.com sometime before. You might think that you have never done that, but the truth is that you were ticked by a fake message asking you to confirm you are not a robot, you are 18+, or that the browser doesn't allow video playback among other reasons.

Once the “Allow” button is clicked, users then permit that particular website to send requests via the browser API,[1], which then manifests as push notifications shown on the system level. This means that the activity is fully absent when the browser is fully turned off. However, that's not the correct way of removing Webnotificationservices.com ads.

What are push notifications and how do they differ from pop-up ads?

There is a lot of confusion surrounding the push notification feature, especially when it comes to desktop computers. Initially, it was used by the system or other official programs only – it was originally prevalent on smartphones and similar devices. Sometime later, in 2014,[2] Google first adapted the feature to be used within the browser environment, which allowed websites to ask users whether they wanted notifications to be enabled.

Once allowed, the push notifications can be shown at any time, as long as the browser is enabled – it does not matter which websites users are visiting or whether they are interacting with the browser in the first place. As long as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, MS Edge, or another browser is running, the push notifications can be shown at any time.

Webnotificationservices.com virus"Confirm you are not a robot" is the most common fake message used by scammers

Pop-up ads, on the other hand, are triggered by users accessing websites they are hosted on. In other cases, adware[3] installed on the system can also initiate pop-up ads, which would look particularly similar to what the Webnotificationservices.com scam website is doing.

How to remove the annoying pop-ups?

Due to similarities between push notifications and pop-up ads, many users immediately come to a conclusion that their systems must have been infected with some kind of a virus, which results in unwanted pop-ups. However, malware is not the direct culprit this time, and the only way to stop push notifications is by blocking the website, causing it within browser settings. If you need help with this, you can proceed with the following instructions:

Google Chrome (desktop)

  1. Open the Google Chrome browser and go to Menu > Settings.
  2. Scroll down and click on Advanced.
  3. Locate the Privacy and security section and pick Site Settings > Notifications.
  4. Look at the Allow section and look for a suspicious URL.
  5. Click the three vertical dots next to it and pick Block. This should remove unwanted notifications from Google Chrome.Stop notifications on Chrome PC 2

  4. Locate the web address in question under Allowed sites and pick Remove.

Note: you can use these guidelines to prevent any websites, regardless of whether it is legitimate or not, from continuing to show notifications to you. Also, we recommend checking the list of the “Allowed” websites and removing anything suspicious from the list, as there are plenty of similar websites that could start sending suspicious ads via the notification feature, for example, Soksicme.com, Bluestringline.com, Nathanaeldan.pro, and similar.

Taking care of adware and other infections

As mentioned, users who get redirected to suspicious websites might well be infected with adware or other malicious software. We strongly recommend using security software to check your system for adware and malware. This is especially important if you spot suspicious activity (ads, redirects, random mouse movements, crashes, etc.) on your device or explore the malicious websites you were redirected to – clicked on links, installed programs.

After removing malicious software from your system, you should repair virus damage and clean your browsers with ReimageIntego. While manually cleaning your browsers is not difficult, as we explain below, fixing malware damage might be. So if you experience critical system failures, using a reputable repair tool is a much easier fix than reinstalling the operating system.

How to prevent from getting adware

Access your website securely from any location

When you work on the domain, site, blog, or different project that requires constant management, content creation, or coding, you may need to connect to the server and content management service more often. The best solution for creating a tighter network could be a dedicated/fixed IP address.

If you make your IP address static and set to your device, you can connect to the CMS from any location and do not create any additional issues for the server or network manager that needs to monitor connections and activities. VPN software providers like Private Internet Access can help you with such settings and offer the option to control the online reputation and manage projects easily from any part of the world.

 

Recover files after data-affecting malware attacks

While much of the data can be accidentally deleted due to various reasons, malware is one of the main culprits that can cause loss of pictures, documents, videos, and other important files. More serious malware infections lead to significant data loss when your documents, system files, and images get encrypted. In particular, ransomware is is a type of malware that focuses on such functions, so your files become useless without an ability to access them.

Even though there is little to no possibility to recover after file-locking threats, some applications have features for data recovery in the system. In some cases, Data Recovery Pro can also help to recover at least some portion of your data after data-locking virus infection or general cyber infection.
