is a very generic website that misuses a legitimate browser feature in order to spam users with ads. These kinds of websites abuse a legitimate browser feature that enables sites to display push notifications on users’ desktops. Instead of showing any kind of useful content, websites like just display spammy advertisements. It is not advised to interact with those ads because you could be exposed to malware and other potentially harmful content. If you have given the site permission to show ads, you should revoke the permission sooner rather than later. ad


The site has no content on it, only a message saying “Checking your browser”. To supposedly access the website, you are asked to allow notifications. Your browser will display an alert saying “ wants to show notifications”, and if you click “Allow”, you will start seeing ads on your desktop.

Generally, when you allow a legitimate website to show notifications, you will receive content that you may find useful. However, considering that is a questionable website, the content it will show on your desktop will be dubious as well. It will mostly just show ads. Some of those ads may be dangerous and potentially expose you to scams and even malware.

You can safely allow legitimate sites to display push notifications. In some cases, the notifications could be of use to you. For example, if you visit a particular news website regularly, you can allow it to show notifications in order to see important news directly on your desktop. When you want to stop seeing the notifications on your desktop, you can easily revoke the permission.

If you get redirected to sites like regularly, you may want to check your computer for an adware infection. It’s also possible that you’re redirected by the questionable sites you visit. If that is the case, an adblocker program would fix it.

Random redirects may be triggered by adware

There are a few reasons why you could be redirected to sites like Typically, the redirects are caused by the questionable websites users visit. Many websites could be categorized as high-risk because the advertisements they expose users to are questionable and potentially dangerous. For example, sites with pornographic and/or pirated content are frequently regarded as high-risk due to the redirects when interacting with anything on those sites. To fix this and stop getting redirected, you should install an adblocker program. Adblockers are very useful tools that make the browsing experience significantly smoother.

Redirects can occasionally be triggered by adware. Adware is a relatively mild infection that mostly subjects users to ad content. It isn’t regarded as a dangerous infection because it doesn’t seriously harm the computer. However, they are very annoying. They also install using deceptive methods, specifically software bundling. The way this method works is infections like adware and browser hijackers can be attached to free software as extra offers. These offers are initially hidden and permitted to install automatically without requiring any explicit permission. Technically, the offers are optional but users need to manually deselect them to stop them from installing. However, since they’re hidden, users often have a hard time deselecting them. Since this is a rather deceptive installation method, programs that use it are often detected as potential threats.

If you pay attention when installing free programs, you can easily avoid these unwanted installations. You will be given the option to select either Basic (Default) settings or Advanced during program installation. The installation window will recommend that you use Default settings but if you do, all extra offers will be allowed to install automatically alongside. However, all of the additional offers will be visible if you choose Advanced settings. You will be able to review all offers and deselect the ones you do not want. It is generally recommended to always deselect all extra offers because you won’t find any of them actually useful. They merely take up space on your computer and cause issues. Furthermore, once installed, the offers are very annoying and challenging to get rid of. Unchecking a few boxes during program installation is much simpler than uninstalling them afterward.

How to stop ads

Untrustworthy websites shouldn’t be allowed to display notifications on your desktop. You must remove from the list of websites with authorization if you have granted it. If you know how to navigate your browser’s settings, it’s not difficult to do. You can follow the instructions provided below if you’re unsure what to do. You should delete not only but also any other unfamiliar websites.

  • 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”.

In the event that an adware infection is to blame for your redirects, we also recommend running a scan of your computer with an anti-virus program. If it is adware, the redirects won’t end until the adware is removed from your computer.

The websites you visit could also be the cause of the redirects. All redirects and other unwanted adverts would be blocked by an adblocker program so we strongly recommend you install it. When browsing risky websites, an adblocker tool will be extremely helpful.
