What is Wholedailyfeed.com ads?

Wholedailyfeed.com prompts users to allow notifications by using misleading messages

Wholedailyfeed.comWholedailyfeed.com is a scam that tricks people into subscribing to push notifications

Wholedailyfeed.com is a deceptive website you might come across unexpectedly, i.e., after being redirected from somewhere else. While it may seem like a regular page, it is nothing like it. Usually, it consists of two components – the push notification prompt and the background message, which actively encourages visitors to press the “Allow” button within it. The trick is that the message presents the notification prompt as something else and makes users allow notifications without even realizing what they have actually done.

The main goal of Wholedailyfeed.com developers is to expose people to intrusive ads, which can then be shown directly on the screen. This activity can be observed at any time while the web browser is being used or is running in the background, and the push notifications are always shown on top of all other running ads, making them particularly intrusive.

What makes it even worse is that the contents of Wholedailyfeed.com ads are mostly links to insecure websites, as well as misleading alerts about things like computer health, earn money quick schemes, or allegedly won prizes. This might expose users to malware, make them subscribe to useless services, or disclose their personal information to cybercriminals, putting their online safety and privacy at risk. Do not click on promoted links!

Instead, we recommend using our instructions below to get rid of the intrusive push notifications. Additionally, there might also be a chance that your system might be infected with adware[1] or similar potentially unwanted software that could be causing unexpected browser redirects to malicious websites.

Name Wholedailyfeed.com
Type Push notifications, ads, scam
Distribution Crooks use fake messages to make users press the “Allow” button on a specially crafted website

Recovery Cleaning web browsers is just as important when dealing with potentially unwanted programs. You can do that manually as per instructions or use an automatic solution ReimageIntego

Wholedailyfeed.com scam explained

Initially, push notifications were not developed to be malicious or harmful, and they are used by millions of legitimate websites. In truth, it is an API (Application Programming Interface) that can be included during the creation of a site, regardless of its contents. If included, it would show every visitor a prompt that would ask whether or not notifications should be enabled. Users then can either select the “Block” or “Allow” option.

It soon became very clear that this feature can be used for malicious purposes as well, and deliver advertisements to users, which allows quick monetization for website developers. The one thing that they need to do is convince people that allowing these notifications is something that is positive. In other words, the authors of websites such as Wholedailyfeed.com, Eofgreatbrib.xyz, Izationsuchasr.xyz, and many others create these sites for no other purpose but to trick people into subscribing.

In fact, all these websites are relatively similar, and you might find the same messages and images shown by different URLs. A few messages you might come across when encountering a push notification scam are:

  • Click “Allow” if you are not a robot
  • If you are 18+, tap Allow
  • Loading. Please tap ALLOW button to continue
  • Click “Allow” to continue watching
  • Just one more step! “Allow” to continue

As evident, website authors are trying to convince people that allowing the notifications would grant them some type of benefit and show them additional content. At this point, if users click the Allow button, they are typically unaware that they allowed the push notifications to be shown directly on their screens. Since the activity does not start straight away, many fail to connect the dots and don't know how to remove Wholedailyfeed.com ads later.

Wholedailyfeed.com virusScam websites might be encountered due to adware infection

Luckily, allowing the notifications is not something detrimental, and any website can be blocked from doing so. Thus, if you fall victim to a scam, you should not worry too much, as long as you don't click on links promoted by the site.

Stop a website from showing you push notifications

Many people are aware of the push notification prompt that shows up upon entering a website. They are free to decline the offer by pressing “Block.” Those who are interested in a particular website can also press the “Allow” button, which would then show relevant information within the push notification area.

Legitimate websites typically don't spam users constantly, so these pop-ups might be useful. For example, one might subscribe to receive notifications from their favorite YouTube video creator – it would send an alert directly on the screen, be it Windows, Mac, or Android device.

However, Wholedailyfeed.com and similar websites do not care about user experience and spam them with intrusive and even malicious ads at random times. Sometimes the activity might be so prevalent that using a computer might become a nightmare. Luckily, all you have to do is to block the website from pushing notifications – here's how to do this:

Google Chrome

  • Select Menu > Settings > Advanced.
  • Click on Site Settings > Notifications.

Adware removal steps

While removing push notifications from malicious sites is a very good first step towards better device security and personal online safety, there are some additional checks you should do. While in most cases, users encounter online scams after clicking a malicious link somewhere else. Note that visiting high-risk places – torrents, gambling, porn – might increase the risk of infecting your device with all kinds of nasties, including ransomware such as Vtua. So please stay away from illegal software and program cracks.[2]

Nonetheless, there is also a chance that there is a potentially unwanted program, namely adware, running in the background and causing your browser to redirect you automatically. Many users might not even suspect that such an app exists on their system only because of its deceptive distribution methods.

In order to get rid of adware, you should scan your device with SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner or Malwarebytes anti-malware. It can also check whether more damaging malware is present on your system. Likewise, some adware might be disguised as your regular programs, and you might not even know they are potentially dangerous.

After you scan your machine, you should also take care of your browsers. Cookies[3] are known to be used by third parties to collect various information about your preferences – they continue to collect data after being placed on the browser. Also, cybercriminals, under certain circumstances, might be able to hijack cookies and gain access to your personal accounts.

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.
