is a deceptive website that hosts scams as well as tries to trick users into allowing ads on the desktop. As soon as you enter the website, a browser alert stating “ wants to show notifications” will pop up. If you agree to these notifications, the website will spam your desktop with potentially dangerous advertisements. It is not advised to interact with those ads since you could be exposed to harmful content. ads


This “push notifications” feature is legitimate and even useful occasionally. You can grant permission to a website if it is legitimate and you want to see more of its content. For example, if you visit a particular news website frequently, you can allow it to show notifications to get news directly on your desktop. You would be taken directly to the content if you clicked on the notifications.

But, like thousands of other websites, takes advantage of this legitimate browser. By now it should be clear that is far from being a safe website. A message falsely stating you have won a gift card will appear as soon as you enter the site. You’ll also get a browser alert saying “ wants to show notifications”. If you allow the notifications, the site will start spamming you with ads on your desktop.

Ads are displayed to users by dubious websites like instead of useful content. We don’t recommend interacting with those advertisements because they could be dangerous to click on. It’s possible for an advertisement to deceive you into installing malware that poses as a trustworthy program. You could also be shown a variety of scams. There’s no reason to interact with those notifications.

If you have given permission to display push notifications, you need to revoke it. Although it’s pretty easy, if you need help revoking it, you can use the instructions provided at the very end of this report.

If your computer is infected with adware, it may trigger redirects

Random redirects to sites like and similar ones can be triggered by a couple of things. However, the questionable websites you visit are the most likely culprit. Some websites are considered to be high-risk because they constantly spam users with potentially dangerous ads. Websites that have pirated or pornographic content are particularly guilty of this. Interacting with anything on such sites can result in a redirect or a pop-up. A good adblocker tool will assist in blocking all redirects. Along with the redirects, all other annoying ads would be blocked.

If you frequently find yourself being redirected to and similar websites, your computer may be infected with adware. The biggest giveaway of an adware infection is an increase in ads, even when you’re browsing sites that previously had little to no ads.

In most cases, users install adware themselves, albeit without realizing it. Such infections use a method known as software bundling to essentially install on users’ computers without them even knowing about it. The way it works is free programs can have added offers, which are permitted to install alongside without requiring explicit permission. The extra offers are generally adware and browser hijackers. The offers are optional but to prevent their installation, manually deselecting them is necessary. Although the offers are hidden in the Advanced settings, users normally use Default settings. It’s evidently a controversial installation method, and programs that use it are often detected by anti-virus software as potential threats.

If you install programs correctly, you can stop these unwanted installations pretty easily. Installing programs using Advanced (Custom) settings as opposed to Default settings is what you need to do. If you select Default settings (as recommended by the installation window), all added offers will be hidden and permitted to install automatically. However, if you opt for Advanced settings, all offers will be displayed and you can dismiss every single one. Deselecting every offer that has been added to the software you are installing is always the best course of action. Software bundling is not a good installation method, so you shouldn’t let programs that use it install on your computer.

Even if offers first seem useful, allowing them to install will only fill your computer with useless programs that cause quite a lot of issues. It is much easier to prevent infections like adware and browser hijackers from installing than remove them later on.

How to stop ads

If you were tricked into giving permission to display notifications, you can easily delete it from the list of websites that have permission. If you need assistance navigating the settings of your browser, use the below-provided instructions.

  • 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 case an adware infection on your computer is why you’re being redirected, it’s a good idea to scan your computer with anti-virus software. If that is the issue, the only option to stop the redirects is to get rid of the adware. The websites you browse could act as the trigger if adware is not the issue. Install a good adblocker to prevent these redirects and other forms of advertising.
