Notify-service.com redirect removal instructions
What is notify-service.com?
notify-service.com is one of many rogue websites designed to redirect users to other sites and deliver dubious content. It is virtually identical to bohemuchnehe.club, haphetititletleres.club, and ind1cate.com. Research results show that most visitors arrive at notify-service.com inadvertently - they are redirected by intrusive advertisements (displayed on other deceptive websites) or potentially unwanted applications (PUAs). In most cases, PUAs infiltrate systems without users' direct permission and, as well as causing redirects, deploy intrusive advertisements and record information relating to browsing habits.
Potentially unwanted applications force-open new browser tabs/windows and redirect users to notify-service.com. This website then delivers dubious content or causes additional redirects - actions which depend on the user's geo-location. Users may end up encountering malicious content. Thus, redirects to and from notify-service.com can lead to various system infections. The same applies to intrusive ads. PUAs deliver coupons, banners, pop-ups, and other similar advertisements. These might also lead to malicious websites or even execute scripts designed to download/install malware. Therefore, even a single accidental click can result in a computer infection. Intrusive ads are delivered using tools that enable placement of third party graphical content on any site. Therefore, they often conceal underlying content, thereby significantly diminishing the browsing experience. Potentially unwanted applications are also notorious for information tracking. They record IP addresses, website URLs visited, pages viewed, search queries, and other similar data that usually includes personal details. Furthermore, the data is later shared with third parties to generate revenue. These people continue to misuse private information to generate even more revenue. Therefore, data tracking can lead to serious privacy issues or even identity theft. We strongly recommend that you eliminate all potentially unwanted applications immediately.

The internet is full of potentially unwanted applications, all of which are virtually identical. By offering many "useful features", PUAs attempt to give the impression of legitimacy and trick users to install. They often succeed. In fact, few PUAs provide the functions promised. Most deliver no real value for regular users and are designed only to generate revenue for the developers. They cause unwanted redirects, deliver advertisements, and gather various information.
How did adware install on my computer?
Some unwanted applications have official download websites, however, developers often proliferate these programs using "bundling" and intrusive advertising methods. Therefore, most infiltrate computers without users' consent. "Bundling" is essentially stealth installation of third party applications with regular software. Developers hide "bundled" apps within "Custom/Advanced" settings (or other sections) of the download/installation processes. Furthermore, many users often rush these procedures and skip steps. They are also likely to click advertisements without understanding the possible consequences. This behavior often leads to inadvertent installation of rogue applications. In this way, users expose their systems to risk of various infections and compromise their privacy.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
The main reasons for computer infections are poor knowledge and careless behavior. The key to computer safety is caution. Therefore, to prevent this situation, be very cautious when browsing the internet and downloading/installing software. Crefully analyze each step of the download/installation processes and opt-out of additionally-included programs. Your software should be downloaded from official sources only, using direct download links. Third party downloaders/installers are often monetized using the "bundling" method (criminals promote rogue programs). Therefore, do not use these tools. Note that intrusive advertisements typically seem legitimate, however, most redirect to dubious websites (gambling, adult dating, pornography, and similar). If you encounter these ads/redirects, immediately remove all suspicious applications/browser plug-ins. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
