justpush.biz is a generic deceptive website that promotes scams and attempts to trick visitors into enabling desktop ads. A browser notification stating “justpush.biz wants to show notifications” will appear as soon as you visit this site. The website will bombard your desktop with intrusive ads if you agree to these notifications. Interacting with those ads is not suggested since you can be exposed to dangerous content.
This “push notifications” feature is legitimate and even useful in some cases. If a website is trustworthy and you want to see more of its content, you can give it permission. As an example, if you frequently visit a particular news website, you can allow it to display notifications so that you can get news updates right on your desktop. When you no longer want to see the notifications, you can easily revoke the permission.
However, justpush.biz, like countless other websites, abuses this legitimate browser feature. It should be quite evident at this point that justpush.biz is not a secure website. As soon as you enter the website, you will see a message saying “Press Allow to watch this video”. Additionally, a browser alert saying “justpush.biz wants to show notifications” will appear. If you accept the notifications, the website will start bombarding your desktop with ads.
Untrustworthy websites like justpush.biz just spam ads to users instead of helpful content. Because clicking on certain ads could be risky, we don’t recommend interacting with them. You might be tricked by an advertisement into installing malware that’s disguised as a useful program. You might also be exposed to a wide range of scams.
You should revoke permission if you have given it to justpush.biz. Even though revoking it is quite simple, you can use the instructions provided at the very end of this report if you need assistance.
Random redirects could signal an adware infection
There are a few causes that can cause random redirects to websites like justpush.biz. The most likely trigger is the dubious websites you frequent. Some websites are regarded as high-risk due to their persistent spamming of users with potentially harmful ads. Particularly guilty of this are websites that have pirated or pornographic content. Any interaction with such websites could trigger a pop-up or a redirect. A good adblocker program will help you stop all redirects.
Your computer may be infected with adware if you frequently find yourself being redirected to justpush.biz and similar websites. In addition to the redirects, if you notice ads on sites that previously had little to no ads, your computer could have adware on it.
Adware is typically installed by users themselves, albeit unknowingly. These types of infections simply install themselves on users’ computers without them even being aware of it by using a method known as software bundling. Free programs often have added offers that can install alongside. Adware and browser hijackers are often added to programs. Technically, the offers are optional but deselecting them manually is necessary to stop them from being installed. The issue with this method is that added offers are hidden in Advanced (Custom) settings while users are usually pushed to use Default. Because of this, software bundling is a pretty controversial installation method. It’s not uncommon for anti-virus programs to flag programs that use it as potential threats.
You can easily prevent these unwanted installations from happening if you learn to install programs properly. What we mean by that is installing programs using Advanced (Custom) settings instead of Default. All extra offers will be concealed and allowed to install automatically if you choose Default settings. The installation window will also recommend using Default settings. However, you need to opt for Advanced when given the option. If you select Advanced settings, all offers will become visible, and you will have the option to deselect all of them. The best course of action is always to deselect every offer that has been added to the program you are installing. Software bundling is not a good installation method and programs that use it should not be permitted to install.
Despite the fact that some offers may appear to be useful at first, allowing them to install will just clog your computer with useless programs that can result in a lot of annoying issues. Adware and browser hijackers are difficult to remove after they have been installed, thus it is much easier to prevent their installation in the very beginning.
