Onlinepushnotification.com redirect removal instructions
What is onlinepushnotification.com?
The onlinepushnotification.com website cannot be trusted and should be avoided. This is a rogue web page designed to cause redirects to other dubious websites or display dubious content. Most users open this site involuntarily - they are forced to visit it by potentially unwanted apps (PUAs). Few people install these apps intentionally and are often tricked into it. When installed, PUAs open websites such as onlinepushnotification.com, display intrusive ads, and collect user-system information. Some examples of other websites opened by apps of this type are meddelande.org, seriencev.com, and looksslike.com.
When a particular PUA is installed, it forces users to visit onlinepushnotification.com by frequently opening the site in a new browser window or tab. It then opens additional (2-3) websites that usually contain dubious and potentially malicious content. Alternatively, onlinepushnotification.com displays dubious content, which depends on the user's location. Some of these other websites might be malicious. Thus, redirects to and from onlinepushnotification.com are a risk to computer safety. Additionally, many PUAs deliver coupons, banners, surveys, pop-ups, and other ads that are intrusive and conceal underlying content of any visited website. When clicked, they usually open deceptive or dubious websites or execute scripts that download/install other unwanted apps. PUAs are often classified as information tracking apps. Developers use them to collect data - usually search queries, URLs of visited websites, geo-locations, IP addresses, and other information. Some of the PUAs might be capable of gathering personal, sensitive details. Developers misuse this data to generate revenue by sharing it with third parties who also misuse it for dubious means. It is possible that the data could fall into the hands of cyber criminals. Therefore, users with apps of this type installed on their systems risk becoming victims of identity theft or experience other problems relating to privacy, browsing safety and so on.

How did adware install on my computer?
These apps can be downloaded and then installed via their websites, however, users generally install them during installation of other software. This happens when developers promote PUAs via the "bundling" method. When unwanted apps are bundled, they are included in the download/installation set-ups of other software, however, information regarding their inclusion is not properly disclosed - developers hide this in settings such as "Custom", "Advanced", etc. Despite this, unwanted installations usually occur only when people leave installation/download settings unchanged.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Pay close attention when browsing the internet, and installing/downloading software. Download software using official and trustworthy sources (websites) and avoid using third party software downloaders/installers, Peer-to-Peer networks (torrent clients, eMule, and other tools), and unofficial websites. Check all available "Advanced"/Custom" and other settings of the installation or download set-ups. Deselect any offers to install unwanted software (applications) and only then finish the download or installation. Be cautious when clicking ads - untrustworthy ads may seem legitimate, however, once clicked, they can redirect to potentially malicious websites (gambling, pornography, adult dating, etc.). If you experience deceptive ads or redirects, check installed plug-ins, add-ons, and extensions installed on your browser or unwanted programs installed on the computer. Unwanted software/applications should be uninstalled/removed immediately. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
