is a generic scam website that misuses a legitimate browser feature to spam users with ads. As soon as you are redirected to the site, you will be shown a browser notification saying “ wants to show notifications”, and if you agree, the site will start displaying advertisement content on your desktop. Fortunately, even if you accidentally allow these notifications, you can easily stop them using your browser’s settings. redirect is a very deceptive website. It has no content on it but makes it seem like it does, and to supposedly see it, you need to allow notifications. Specifically, the site says you will be able to continue watching if you allow notifications. This could work on users who were watching pirated content online and were redirected.

As soon as you are redirected to, you will be shown a browser alert saying “ wants to show notifications”. If you click “Allow”, the site will start spamming ads on your desktop. While most of those ads will only be annoying, some may be dangerous. They could expose you to scams and/or malicious content. Avoid interacting with them if you have given permission.

If there’s a website that frequently visit and want to see more of its content, you can allow it to show you notifications. The feature is legitimate, so as long as a site is safe, you can give it permission. The permission is also easily revokable if you want to stop seeing the notifications on your screen. Instructions can be found at the very end of this report if you need assistance.

What is causing you to get redirected to sites like

Random redirects to and similar websites are usually triggered by the sites users visit. Dubious sites (e.g. ones that have pornography or pirated content) expose users to a large number of ads in order to make revenue. Clicking on anything on certain sites could trigger a redirect. Fortunately, a good adblocker program will take care of everything and prevent both regular ads as well as redirects.

If you notice that you’re redirected on a regular basis, you might have picked up an adware infection by accident. It’s not a serious infection and usually installs via the free software bundling method. The method allows such infections to install without requiring explicit permission from users. It’s a rather sneaky method, and that is why programs that use it are often classified as potentially unwanted by anti-virus vendors.

The way software bundling works is adware and similar infections are added to free programs as extra offers. The offers, while optional, are concealed and permitted to install alongside without requiring explicit permission. It is possible to deselect the extra offers but users who rush when installing free programs are unlikely to notice them.

When installing programs, you can choose which settings to use. The installation window may recommend using Default but if you do and the program has added offers, they would be permitted to install automatically. This is why you need to opt for Advanced (Custom) setting no matter what you install. Those settings will show you if anything has been added. You will also be given the option to deselect the offers you do not want.

As we’ve already said, the method is quite controversial. Programs that use it should not be permitted to install on your computer. If you allow these installations, you will simply fill your computer with junk programs.

How to stop redirects

The most likely trigger for the redirects to is the sites you visit. Fortunately, a good adblocker program would take care of all the ads and redirects. If the redirects are caused by an adware infection, only removing the infection would stop the redirects. It would be easiest to use anti-virus software.
