is a generic deceptive website, identical to thousands of others that misuse a legitimate browser feature that allows sites to show notifications on users’ desktops. To put it simply, the website aims to trick users into allowing ads on their desktops. A browser alert will appear as soon as you are redirected to the website, and it will ask you to authorize the site to show you notifications. While this feature is legitimate, sites like misuse it. Instead of showing useful content, the site just spams ads. If you have given the site permission, you need to immediately revoke it because nothing good will come from it. ads



This “show push notifications” feature is legitimate. You can permit a website to display notifications as long as it’s secure. If you frequent certain websites, you may even find it useful to see their notifications. You would receive news straight on your desktop, for example, if you permit a news website to display notifications. As you would access the content by clicking on the notification, this feature can be pretty useful. You can easily remove this permission if you decide you no longer want to see the notifications. At the very end of this report, we will post instructions if you are unsure of what to do.

The issue with the feature is that sites like frequently abuse it to bombard people with advertisements. itself has no content and only an image asking you to allow notifications to confirm you’re not a robot. As soon as you enter the site, your browser will immediately display an alert saying “ wants to show notifications”. If you give the site permission, you will start seeing ads on your desktop. The site is not legitimate, so the notifications it displays could be harmful. It’s not impossible for you to come across malware and scams. The sooner you cancel the authorization, the better.

We strongly recommend scanning your computer with an anti-virus program for an adware infection if you’re redirected regularly. It’s also possible that a dubious website you visit is what triggers the redirects, in which case downloading an adblocker program might fix the problem. If it is adware, deleting it would be the only way to stop the redirects.

An adware infection may trigger random redirects

Random redirects typically happen as a result of users visiting risky websites. If you were repeatedly redirected while visiting a particular website, the issue is probably with the website. Some websites are regarded as high-risk because of the advertisements they expose users to. For example, because of dubious advertisements, sites that have pirated or pornographic content are typically regarded as high-risk. A redirect is frequently triggered when you interact with anything on those websites. Installing an adblocker tool can be a huge help when dealing with these ads

However, if you find yourself being redirected more frequently and for no apparent reason, your computer may be infected with adware. Adware is a minor infection that is more annoying than actually harmful. It does, however, have a tendency to bombard users with adverts, which is not only annoying but also potentially harmful. If you’re wondering how adware got onto your computer, it did it via a method known as software bundling. Adware, browser hijackers, and similar infections are added to free software as extra offers. These offers are authorized to install alongside without requiring any explicit permission.

Although the offers are technically optional, users need to manually deselect them in order to stop their installation. However, users frequently are unable to deselect the offers because they are hidden in settings users rarely use. Fortunately, if you take care when installing free programs, it’s fairly simple to avoid these unwanted installations. Make sure you select Advance (Custom) settings during installation rather than Default. Although the installation window will recommend you to use Default settings, if you do so, all added offers will be allowed to install alongside the software you are installing without your consent. However, if you pick Advanced settings, every offer will be displayed to you, and you will be able to deselect them.

In general, we advise deselecting all of the offers no matter what they are. No legitimate program will ever use this questionable installation method. Furthermore, anti-virus software frequently categorizes programs that do use it as potential risks.
