Why is seplumming.pro an unsafe website

Seplumming.pro malicious activity aims to perform these three functions: Browser hijacking; Displaying unsolicited ads; Tracking the user’s browsing activities. Regarding browser hijacking, seplumming.pro forces users into enabling its intrusive web push notifications or making you click on the associated “Allow†button. This is done in a very pushy way, for example, through switching your browser into the full-screen mode without letting you easily close the pop-up alert. Thus, people are not able to do anything with their browser but performing the tricky instructions provided by seplumming.pro. The pop-up may give you the message claiming that it is important to click on the “Allow†to verify your age, to confirm that you are not a robot or to fix your missing Internet Connection. Some statements given by the alert are absolutely deceptive.

These pop-ups may attack your screen even when the browser is not in use, however, it will be running in the background and causing the aforesaid pop-up show. Redirections by seplumming.pro are dangerous, so you should stay away from clicking on its ads. They may lead you to many other dangerous resources on the web, such as:
