is a typical scam website that tries to mislead visitors into enabling desktop ads. When you get redirected to the site, you will immediately see a browser alert saying “ wants to show notifications”. The site is misusing a legitimate browser feature that allows sites with permission to show notifications on users’ desktops. Instead of showing content that users may find interesting, spams ads. The website itself is very dubious, and the advertising it will bombard your desktop with are probably even worse. If you have given the site permission, you should revoke it right away. This is easy to do in your browser’s settings. ads



The website does not have any content. When you get redirected to it, all you will see is a piece of text saying you need to click “Allow” if you are over 18 years old. This refers to the browser alert saying “ wants to show notifications”. If you choose to allow these notifications, notifications with ads in them will start popping up on the right side of your screen. The site itself is quite dubious, its ads will be much worse. You would probably be exposed to very dubious content, such as malware and scams. If you’ve already given it permission, you should immediately revoke it. Use the instructions provided at the end of this report if you need help. Review all sites that have permission and remove the ones you do not recognize.

The “show notifications” feature is legitimate and safe to use. However, only trustworthy websites should be granted permission to display these notifications. There are uses for this feature. If you frequently visit a particular website, you can allow it to show you notifications to see the site’s content more conveniently. If you click on the notification, you would be taken directly to the content. As we’ve already said, this permission is easy to revoke if you stop wanting to see the notifications.

If you were redirected to once or twice when browsing a particular site, the website you were browsing most likely triggered the redirect. An adblocker program would be very helpful in preventing these redirects as well as blocking regular ads. However, if you frequently get strange redirects, you should scan your computer with an anti-virus program in case adware is what’s causing you issues.

What triggers redirects to sites like

There are a few reasons why you might be redirected to questionable websites. Random redirects typically happen when users browse high-risk websites. Therefore, if you were redirected while visiting a dubious website, the website is probably to blame. Websites with dubious advertisements are typically regarded as high-risk. Without an adblocker, visiting such websites will result in you being bombarded with all kinds of ads and redirects.

Redirects can occasionally be brought on by adware infections. When compared to other types of malware like trojans and ransomware, adware is a very mild infection. But dealing with it is quite annoying. Adware can be attached to free programs as an extra offer in what’s known as the software bundling method. These offers are set to install automatically alongside the programs they’re attached to. They do not require explicit permission from users. Software bundling is a pretty controversial installation method, and programs that use it are often flagged as potential threats by anti-virus programs.

The offers are optional but users need to manually deselect them to prevent their installation. But because they are hidden, many users have trouble with this. You should have no trouble with this if you learn to install free programs correctly. When given the option to choose settings when installing a program, select Advanced (Custom) settings rather than Default. The installation window will advise you to use Default settings, but if you do, all added offers will be concealed and permitted to install. However, the added offers will be visible if you select Advanced settings. Additionally, you will have the choice to deselect all offers you do not want. Remember that no legitimate program will try to install via software bundling. Therefore, it is advised that you always uncheck all offers. Unchecking a few boxes during installation is far simpler than having to remove adware or other persistent infections once they’ve been fully installed.

How to stop ads

Although the feature is legitimate and usable, websites like shouldn’t be permitted to abuse it. For your own peace of mind, you should revoke the permission for the site to show you notifications. Fortunately, doing that is not difficult in your browser’s settings. If you’re not sure how to navigate your browser’s settings, use the instructions provided directly below. You should delete not only but all other dubious websites as well.

  • Mozilla Firefox: Open the 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 websites 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 the 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 websites 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 the 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 websites from the list. It’s possible to permanently turn off push notification requests by toggling off “Ask before sending”.

Additionally, you should run a scan of your computer with anti-virus software to check for any adware infections. If it is adware, the redirects would be stopped only by deleting it. And using anti-virus software is the simplest way to do that. The redirects should stop as soon as the adware is removed. You should also install an adblocker program.
