What is Yfetyg.com ads?

Yfetyg.com is a scam made to trick users into subscribing to intrusive notifications

Yfetyg.com pop-upsPush notification prompts might insert unwanted ads on your screen

Not all websites are created to be informative or useful in other ways. Cybercriminals can use the internet to host websites that are designed to scam people to achieve their goals, and Yfetyg.com belongs to the latter category. To be precise, this website uses various cheap tricks to fool visitors into subscribing to notifications.

As soon as users press the “Allow” button, they might soon notice the intrusive pop-up ads showing up at the bottom-right corner of the screen. These notifications can include links to various scam, phishing,[1] or virus-laden websites, so it is important not to click on them. Downloading something or clicking on links on websites that are being promoted is extremely dangerous, as you might end up infecting your device with malware.

The dangers also lie with Yfetyg.com redirect tendencies. It is not uncommon for a website such as this to forward users to other dubious places. For example, you could be offered to participate in a survey, or a file such as Your-File-Is-Ready-To-Download_93521.msi could be downloaded to your computer automatically.

In this instance, it is adware known as OpenSUpdater or Siggen. If you install it, your web browsing activities on Google Chrome or another browser might become a nightmare due to pop-up ads that would be shown at any time. Likewise, if you see browser redirects relatively often, likely, your system is already infected with adware, so you should check that to be sure.

Name Yfetyg.com
Type Push notifications, scam, ads
IP address 185.162.85.19
Distribution The notifications might start showing up as soon as the “Allow” button is pressed, although the activity might not start until much later
Symptoms Intrusive pop-up ads show up on the desktop in regular intervals; upon accessing the site, redirects can trigger downloads and display other unsafe pages
Dangers Clicking on links that are embedded within the notification prompt, exploring the sites these links bring to, or downloading files can be dangerous – users can get infected with malware, suffer from financial losses, or disclose their private information to cybercriminals
Elimination To prevent the site from displaying notifications to you, access the site permission section via your web browser settings – you can find more details below
Further steps Redirects and ads might indicate adware infection, so you should check your system with anti-malware, clean your browsers, and attempt to fix virus damage with a repair tool ReimageIntego

How push notifications work and how not to be tricked by fake prompts

Push notifications were initially released as a feature by Apple back in 2009, While it was initially limited just to applications/software installed on a particular device, browsers quickly adopted the feature, and now almost every website is keen to offer users receiving notifications – you have probably encountered them before.

In fact, the function can be useful for those who want to receive information from certain websites. In the meantime, the frequency of these notifications depends on the source that is sending them, so there is no surprise that some users found the pop-ups rather intrusive and annoying.

In the meantime, crooks quickly realized that, with the help of scam techniques, they could use the feature to promote various links directly on users' screens – all they have to do is convince visitors that the “Allow” button is designed for something else. And they did.

There are several versions of the scam that you encounter while visiting this or any other similar website. Here's one example:

Click “Allow” to verify that you are not a robot

In this case, cybercriminals imitate a well-known verification scheme used by many legitimate websites. Users can easily confuse the scam with a legitimate request and press the “Allow” button. In other cases, visitors might be shown a fake video capture or that a download is ready. All of these are fake, and you should never proceed with the request. Luckily, there is an easy way to revert this – simply check the instructions below.

Yfetyg.com redirectFrequent browser redirects might indicate adware infection

There are millions of websites that are being created to scam users into subscribing to notifications – Yfetyg.com is just one of them. We previously discussed sites like Uishoaarran.top, News-puzuxi.cc, and many others. You might encounter many others in the future; you should leave those pages immediately.

Stop Yfetyg.com ads with ease

Once encountered with numerous pop-ups, users might immediately think that their systems have been infected with a virus. In fact, this is not entirely correct, as the notifications themselves are not malicious; it's just the content that is shown inside might be. In other words, the notifications are shown to you because you have (unwillingly) provided permission for the site to do so.

You should not worry too much about it, however, as this is easily reversible. Follow the instructions below – we provide them for each of the most popular web browsers.

Automatic downloads can be dangerous

You might end up on the Yfetyg.com site after being redirected from another website after clicking on a link or due to an automatic URL redirect.[2] The problem with push notification scam sites is that they often continue this tendency, and users end up on many other websites designed to scam them into providing personal information, subscribing to useless services, or installing malicious programs.

In some cases, these redirects can prompt automatic downloads to your system. Never click on these files, as they can infect your system even further. You should be fine as long as you run the downloaded executable – all you have to do is delete it by pressing Shift + Del.

If you have already installed something suspicious or your browsers are commonly displaying ads and redirect you to malicious scam pages, it is time to check your device for adware and malware infections. You can do that quickly with SpyHunter 5Combo Cleaner anti-malware software or try to uninstall PUPs manually. The latter method can only work for a limited number of apps (those that are not malicious), while malware can usually be detected only with security software.

Yfetyg.com downloadsAfter entering Yfetyg.com, you might be rerouted to other dangerous sites, and malicious files downloaded automatically

After eliminating all potentially unwanted programs and malware, we recommend you also clean or reset your web browsers. Adware is known to interact with browsers to produce ads, hence leftover files might result in a continuation of such activity. Besides, tracking technologies such as cookies[3] can continue to track your online data. For more details on how to take care of your browsers after the infection, check the instructions below or scan your system with a system maintenance tool ReimageIntego which could do this job for you automatically.

How to prevent from getting adware

Do not let government spy on you

The government has many issues in regards to tracking users' data and spying on citizens, so you should take this into consideration and learn more about shady information gathering practices. Avoid any unwanted government tracking or spying by going totally anonymous on the internet. 

You can choose a different location when you go online and access any material you want without particular content restrictions. You can easily enjoy internet connection without any risks of being hacked by using Private Internet Access VPN.

Control the information that can be accessed by government any other unwanted party and surf online without being spied on. Even if you are not involved in illegal activities or trust your selection of services, platforms, be suspicious for your own security and take precautionary measures by using the VPN service.

Backup files for the later use, in case of the malware attack

Computer users can suffer from data losses due to cyber infections or their own faulty doings. Ransomware can encrypt and hold files hostage, while unforeseen power cuts might cause a loss of important documents. If you have proper up-to-date backups, you can easily recover after such an incident and get back to work. It is also equally important to update backups on a regular basis so that the newest information remains intact – you can set this process to be performed automatically.

When you have the previous version of every important document or project you can avoid frustration and breakdowns. It comes in handy when malware strikes out of nowhere. Use Data Recovery Pro for the data restoration process.
