If you’ve already given it permission, revoke it right away. Avoid interacting with those notifications because you can be exposed to malicious content. ads



The “display push notifications” feature is actually legitimate, sometimes even useful. But websites like abuse it. If a website is secure, you can permit it to display notifications. Allowing a website to display notifications on your desktop if you frequently visit it may even prove to be useful. If you, for example, frequently visit a certain news website, you can enable notifications and receive news alerts right on your desktop. You can easily cancel the permission if you decide you no longer want to see them. Use the instructions provided at the very end of the report if you are unsure how to do that.

This feature is abused by and thousands of other sites like it to spam users’ desktops with advertisements. There is nothing on besides one image and instructions to allow notifications. Your browser will display an alert saying “ wants to show notifications” as soon as you enter the website. The website will start displaying ads on your desktop if you select “Allow”. The adverts would show up on the right side of your desktop, much like regular system notifications do.

We advise using anti-virus software to scan your computer. An adware infection could be the cause of the redirects to websites like If that is the case, the only way to stop the redirects is to remove the adware. And using anti-virus software makes it easy to do that. Installing an adblocker program is also a good idea.

Why are you redirected to

You’re either browsing high-risk websites without an adblocker program or your computer has adware installed if you keep getting redirected to odd websites. If the former is the case, all it takes to stop the redirects is to download an adblocker program. Because of the advertisements they display, some websites are regarded as high-risk, and visiting them without an adblocker is not a good idea. Websites with pornographic or pirated content are typically regarded as high-risk.

If you find yourself being redirected more frequently, your computer might be infected with adware. The good news is that your computer won’t be harmed directly by such infections. It was installed using the software bundling method, so you most likely didn’t even notice. Adware, browser hijackers, and other potentially undesirable programs can be attached to free software using this method and installed without your explicit consent. It is quite a sneaky installation technique, and programs that use it are frequently categorized as potential threats by anti-virus vendors. Thankfully, there are ways to stop these unwanted installations while still installing freeware.

These infections can install automatically because of the way they are added to freeware. Although they are optional, in order to stop them from installing, you would need to actively deselect the offers. However, many users fail to see the offers because they are concealed, making it difficult for them to deselect them.

Unwanted installations won’t be a problem if you know how to properly install free software. Installing software using Advanced (Custom) options rather than Default is the most important part. The installation window will advise using Default settings, but be aware that these settings will hide all offers and allow them to install automatically. All additional offers will not only be visible if you choose Advanced settings, but you will also have the option to deselect all of them. All of the offers should be deselected because you won’t benefit from them. No legitimate program will ever install using this dubious technique. And programs that do will only cause you all kinds of issues.
