is a questionable website that often hosts scams and tries to trick users into allowing push notifications. When you get redirected to the site, you will immediately get a browser alert saying “ wants to show notifications”. If you click “Allow”, the site will start spamming your desktop with questionable ads that could be dangerous to interact with. ads


Like thousands of other websites, misuses a legitimate browser feature that allows sites to show users notifications on the desktop. But instead of showing something useful, questionable sites simply spam users with ads. Those ads could range from mildly annoying ones to outright malicious ones, which is why it’s not a good idea to interact with them. You could be exposed to ads that promote scams or ask you to download disguised malware. These notifications will be of no use to you so if you were tricked into allowing them, revoke the permission.

There are legitimate uses for this “show notifications” feature. As long as a website is legitimate, you can allow it to show notifications. The contents of those notifications depend on what the site usually posts. For example, a news site would show important news alerts. Clicking on those notifications would take you directly to the article. So it can be a convenient feature in some cases.

The site also often displays various scams. For example, in the above image, was promoting a scam that falsely informs users about virus infections on their computers. Such scams often try to take advantage of anti-virus affiliate programs by redirecting users to buy the anti-virus program (in this case McAfee). Similar fake alerts may also try to trick users into buying subscriptions for questionable programs. And if an alert contains a phone number, it’s classified as a tech support scam because if you were to call, you would be connected to professional scammers pretending to be legitimate technicians.

If you have given the site permission to show notifications, you can easily revoke it. Simply access your browser’s settings and remove from the list of sites that have permission. You can find instructions at the end of this report.

Why are you redirected to and similar sites

There are a few potential causes for redirects to sites like The most likely trigger is questionable sites you visit. Some websites are regarded as high-risk due to the advertisements they subject users to. For example, potentially dangerous advertisements are frequently seen on websites that have pornographic or illegal content. On certain websites, clicking on anything can trigger a redirect. However, a simple adblocker program can stop these redirects. A good adblocker program will not only stop redirects but also block pop-ups and intrusive ads.

You might have adware installed on your computer if you frequently find yourself being redirected to and similar sites. The main symptom of adware is persistent ads popping up everywhere, even when browsing safe sites. Typically, users install infections like adware accidentally when installing free programs. Free programs often come with additional offers that include infections like adware and browser hijackers. Unless users choose to explicitly deselect them, these offers are designed to install alongside the program. While the offers are technically optional, they are initially hidden. Users rarely pay enough attention to notice them, and thus are unable to deselect them. Programs that use this method to install are usually detected as potential threats by anti-virus programs. This makes software bundling a rather controversial installation method.

As long as you install programs correctly, you will be able to prevent these unwanted installations. The most crucial thing to remember is to install programs using Advanced (Custom) settings rather than Default. All added offers will be hidden and allowed to install automatically if you use Default settings, which the installation window recommends. Advanced settings, however, would show all added offers and give you the choice to deselect them all. We advise you to deselect all offers added to the program you are installing. Programs that use software bundling should not be allowed to install on your computer.

Even if offers first seem useful, allowing them to install will only result in your computer filling up with junk programs that can be difficult to get rid of once fully installed. It’s much simpler to deselect a few boxes when installing programs than it is to try to get rid of infections like adware and browser hijackers. ads removal

If you were tricked into allowing to show notifications on your desktop, you can easily revoke that permission in your browser’s settings. If you don’t know what to do, you can use the directions provided right below. In addition to, you should also remove all other questionable websites.

  • Mozilla Firefox: Open menu (the three bars at the top-right corner), click Options, then Privacy & Security. Scroll down to Permissions, press Settings next to Notifications, and remove and any other questionable website from the list. It’s possible to permanently turn off push notification requests by checking the “Block new requests asking to allow notifications” box in the same Notifications settings.
  • Google Chrome: Open menu (the three dots top-right corner), then Settings, then Privacy and security, then Site Settings. Click on Notifications under Permissions, and remove and any other questionable website from the list. It’s possible to permanently turn off push notification requests by toggling off “Sites can ask to send notifications”.
  • Microsoft Edge: Open menu (the three dots top-right corner), then Settings, then Cookies and site permissions, then Notifications. Review which sites have permission and remove and any other questionable website from the list. It’s possible to permanently turn off push notification requests by toggling off “Ask before sending”.

We also recommend scanning your computer for an adware infection. It’s not a serious infection but it’s still easiest to get rid of using anti-virus software. The redirects will stop when the adware is removed. You should also install an adblocker program in case you’re redirected by the websites you visit. The adblocker program would not only stop redirects but also block ads and pop-ups.
