What is is a site that shows constant pop-up ads and redirects visitors to promoted pages. If you’re seeing it constantly, it’s a sign that adware could be infecting your computer or browser. is an adware-like site that is a temporary stop before being redirected to an advertiser page. It also shows unending pop-up ads. People don’t choose to see ads from intentionally — every step of the way, deception and malice are used to bring visitors to Though pop-ups and redirects can be stopped, it’s important to examine what caused the problems in the first pace so that it can be avoided in the future.


How and what ads shows

The two ways in which delivers ads: Pop-up cards (regardless of what website you’re on). Redirects The first visit to displays a page that asks the visitor “If you are 18+ click Allow†and “To access, click Allow†on an alert that pops up at the top of the page. This is a crafty way to trick people to allow to show them notifications.

Notifications are abused by to show pop-up ads. And subsequent visits to will result in being redirected to various pages, which you can think of as ads that take up a whole tab of your browser. From my experience, these are types of ads that shows: Legitimate websites, like aliexpress. Pages hosting suspicious files Websites that automatically download executables Scams (pyramid schemes, tech support scams) Suspicious subscription websites (low reputation sites which ask for credit card details and other private information when signing up, despite promising a free trial). Pages with adult content (not real porn, just a few pictures to lure people in). Pages with restricted content, such as betting and gambling. Legitimate MMO games with microtransactions. As you can see, some of the advertised content is objectionable. How objectionable it is is up for each individual person to decide, but generally, restricted content should be actively sought out, rather than displayed with no warning and no consent. Some advertising networks have more strict rules than others, and the marketers who want the freedom to be outrageous, invasive, and overwhelming, can do that by partnering with sites like,,, (there are a lot of these rogue sites out there).

The pop-ups could be avoided simply by not clicking on the Allow button. They can also be disabled by going to your browser settings and blocking notifications from and other suspicious sites that are pushing ads to you. But this won’t stop whatever is directing you to — that is a separate problem that needs to be dealt with.

Explanations for being directed to is not likely to be found organically. Usually, people end up there thanks to ads, malicious links, or adware. One way to reach would be through deceptive ads. These excessive and unsafe ads are most likely going to be found on unofficial streaming sites, youtube video converters, browser game sites, and similar places online. Some sites trigger them even when not clicking on an ad, so it’s extremely difficult to avoid them. It would be safer to find a more usable site.

Malicious links to could also be placed in forums, posts, direct messages, video descriptions even in reputable sites, often promising an unrealistic product, for example, a free way to watch a movie that hasn’t come out yet. Promotions like this should be reported.

Adware — a type of malware that displays intrusive ads — can direct you to, too. Some aggressive adware can manipulate web browsers to open new windows and tabs, and show ads that lead to Adware would be causing more problems than just — it could be promoting various unwanted software and even installing it without a clear warning.

How to remove ads

If adware is responsible for directing you to, you need to get rid of it before it causes real problems. Scan your computer with Anti-Malware Tool, Anti-Malware Tool, or another powerful antivirus tool to find out if you have suspicious programs installed, and which ones they are. Due to the fact that most malware use very similar ways to spread, multiple malicious applications might have been installed without your knowledge (bundles are a powerful and popular way for PUPs and adware, and even Trojans to spread). But if you’re not being constantly directed to, it’s likely that fixing your browser settings is going to be enough to get rid of the pop-up ads. Check not only your notifications, but also your extensions to make sure that browser hijackers aren’t sending you to and other unwanted sites.

It is important to read alerts before clicking on them — sites like display a variety of messages to trick visitors. Even better, do not click on anything at all if you’re unsure that it’s safe. Know how to force programs to close, how to check your notification permissions (Chrome, Safari, Firefox). Also, update your software as soon as possible — sometimes updates include security fixes which, if serious, will undoubtedly be exploited by criminals.
