is a very generic website that does not have any content on it. It misuses a legitimate browser feature that allows sites with permission to show notifications on users’ screens. This is why you will see an alert saying “ wants to show notifications” immediately upon entering the site. If users give it permission, instead of useful content, will just spam ads. It’s not a good idea to enable these notifications because doing so will cause your screen to be spammed with ads, some of which may be harmful. If you were tricked into giving the site permission, you should revoke it as soon as possible, if only to stop the intrusive ads. ads


Although such useless websites abuse this feature to bombard users with advertisements, the “show push notifications” feature is legitimate. As long as a site is safe, you can give it permission to show notifications. The notifications might even prove to be useful to you if you frequently visit a specific website because clicking on them would take you right to the content. If, for example, you use a particular news website, allowing it to show you notifications could be useful as you’d see news directly on your screen. When you no longer want to see notifications, you can easily stop them in your browser’s settings. If you don’t know how to do that, use the directions provided at the end of this report.

Although this feature is legitimate, it is frequently abused by websites like The site doesn’t have any content on it, only an image of a loading bar and a message saying “Click the Allow button to subscribe to push notifications and continue watching”. Immediately upon entering the website, you will get a browser alert saying “ wants to show notifications”. If you click “Allow”, the website will be able to display ads on your screen. Instead of showing any kind of useful content that you’d find interesting, the site will just spam ads. If you have given it permission, do not interact with the notifications. They could expose you to dangerous content, including malware and various scams. The sooner you revoke’s authorization to display notifications, the better, as there is absolutely no benefits to them.

Use an anti-virus program to check for adware if you find yourself being randomly redirected to on a regular basis. You also need to install an adblocker program as well, as it will block redirects when you browse high-risk websites.

Random redirects may be triggered by adware

Users are frequently redirected to random websites as a result of their poor browsing habits. The biggest problem is users visiting high-risk websites without an adblocker program. Certain websites are considered to be high-risk because of the ads they expose users to, particularly sites that have pirated or pornographic content. Fortunately, you can easily prevent the redirects with a good adblocker program.

Adware and other similar infections can also trigger random redirects. If it is adware, you would be redirected regularly and see an increase in ads. These infections are usually installed via the software bundling method and are essentially permitted to install without explicit permission. They come added to free programs as extra offers that are permitted to install alongside. The offers are technically optional but they need to be manually deselected by users to stop them from installing. But because they are tucked away in settings that users don’t normally use, users usually don’t see the offers and thus, are unable to deselect them. This makes software bundling a very controversial method, and it’s not uncomon for programs that use it to be detected as potential threats by anti-virus programs.

If you learn to correctly install free programs, you will be able to prevent these unwanted installations very easily. All you need to do is choose Advanced (Custom) settings when given the option instead of Default. Default settings conceal the offers and allow their installations, while Advanced will make them all visible. You will also be given the option to deselect all offers you do not want. You only need to uncheck the boxes of those offers. Once you have done that, you can continue installing the program. We advise against allowing any offers to installl, even if they seem like they could be useful.

How to stop ads

Just in case an adware infection is what’s triggering the redirects, we recommend scanning your computer with an anti-virus program. If the program detects adware, only removing it would stop the redirects. And it’s easiest to do using anti-virus programs. It’s also a good idea to install an adblocker program to block redirects, especially when browsing high-risk websites.
