Please Allow to watch the video Notification Page Removal

What is Please Allow to watch the video Notification Page

Please Allow to watch the video Notification Page is a essentially a social engineering attack that tries to get users to agree to see ads on the desktop. The way this scam works is users get redirected to strange sites that ask users to press “Allow” on an alert requesting permission to show browser notifications. If users agree to those notifications, the site will start showing ads on the desktop. It would mostly be ads leading to adult websites, online betting and game pages. Those sites would likely be unsafe and expose users to dangerous content. Thus, if users agree to these notifications, they should avoid clicking on any ads and quickly revoke the permission. How to do that will be explained in the last section of the report.

If users are constantly redirected to these questionable sites that promote the social engineering scam, their computers may be infected with adware. Adware is a relatively minor infection in comparison but it does cause redirects to questionable sites. If it is adware, users would need to get rid of it to remove Please Allow to watch the video Notification Page permanently.

What is causing the redirects

Users may get redirected to sites that show these social engineering attacks either by adware or by questionable sites. If users visit certain high-risk websites, they may get randomly redirected to sites showing these notifications. It usually happens when users visit unsafe pornography or free streaming sites. To prevent the unwanted redirects users should use adblocker.

However, if the redirects are happening constantly, adware may be the cause. Adware usually installs without users even noticing because it uses software bundling. In simple words, adware often comes attached to free software as an extra offer, and unless users manually deselect it, it is permitted to install alongside. Most users don’t deselect the offers simply because they are not aware of them. This usually happens because users install programs in Default settings which hide everything that’s been added to the program. What users need to do when installing freeware is opt for Advanced (Custom) settings. If something has been added to the program, it will be made visible, and users will be able to deselect the offer(s). It’s enough to just uncheck the boxes. This takes very little time and effort, especially compared to how long it takes to uninstall pesky infections like adware.

What happens if users press “Allow”?

When users get redirected to one the sites promoting the social engineering attack, they will see an image of a video buffering and a message saying users need to press “Allow” to watch the video. A browser alert will pop up with a message saying that the site would like to show users notifications. There is no video and this is merely a common social engineering attack. If users press allow, they are essentially agreeing to seeing ads. There are legitimate sites, such as news, that ask to send users notifications as well, and it’s safe to press “Allow” on those. However, when an unidentified site requests to show notifications, the answer should always be “Block”.

Those who have allowed the notifications will start seeing advertisements on the desktop. And it won’t be safe ads either. They’ll be showing pornography content, invite users into questionable chats or to play online games, etc. Engaging with those ads would be a mistake as they would expose users to highly questionable content, such as malware and scams.
