What is is a highly questionable website, promoting a scam that tries to trick users into subscribing to push notifications. It’s a very common scam that you can encounter on countless other sites. When you get redirected to or a similar site, you would see an alert asking you to permit the site to show you notifications. If you press “Allow”, you’d essentially be agreeing to see ads, even when not on the site. Many legitimate sites ask to show you notifications as well, but they usually do not show ads. For example, if you give this permission to a news website, you will see notifications with news stories pop up on the right side as you browse other sites. It’s a way to keep up to date with news in an easier way. However, this feature is often abused by dangerous sites looking to generate revenue by exposing you to advertisements.


If you have granted the site permission to show you notifications, you can easily revoke the permission. Scroll down to the last section of the report to see the instructions. However, you should also check your computer for adware. Adware is often the reason users get redirect to these kinds of sites in the first place. If adware is at fault, you will need to get rid of it to remove redirects permanently.

You won’t end up on or a similar site just because. You were either redirected by the site you were on or by adware. If you were on a high-risk website that’s known to host questionable ads, it’s not surprising you got redirected. This can usually be prevented by downloading/enabling adblocker.

However, if you are constantly being redirected, even when on safe websites, you may have an adware problem. Adware is a pretty minor infection that focuses on showing ads and redirecting to certain sites. It’s not particularly dangerous but it can be very annoying. It usually installs together with freeware, without users even knowing. Most free programs come with extra offers attached to them, and unless you manually deselect them, they will be permitted to install. In order to deselect them, opt for Advanced (Custom) settings when installing freeware. Those settings will display all offers that have been added, and you will be able to deselect them. Simply uncheck the boxes, and you can continue the installation.

Since the majority of free programs have these offers, you always need to pay attention to how you install programs. Otherwise, your computer will be full of junk that negatively affects your computer’s performance.

However, when unknown sites like ask for permission, always decline.

The ads that will show you if you agree to its notifications will not be safe. They could expose you to dangerous content and trick you into downloading some kind of malware or falling for a scam. And if your computer is infected with adware, you’ll also be randomly redirected to sites like and shown more ads when browsing. Just to be safe, while adware is installed, avoid interacting with ads altogether. removal
