It is strongly advisable not to visit (trust) the wsoyourwi[.]fun website, or pages that it is used to promote. As a rule, pages like wsoyourwi[.]fun are promoted through deceptive advertisements, other untrustworthy websites, and (or) potentially unwanted applications (PUAs).
In other words, is not common for pages like wsoyourwi[.]fun to be visited by users on purpose. Users who have a PUA installed on their web browsers or computers should remove them as soon as possible - quite often, apps of this kind are designed to gather various data, generate unwanted advertisements.
Usually, when some installed PUA opens a website like wsoyourwi[.]fun, then it opens it in a new browser window or tab. Depending on its visitors' geolocation, this page either opens a couple of untrustworthy pages or loads questionable content.
Either way, wsoyourwi[.]fun and other sites of this type should not be visited.
It is possible that wsoyourwi[.]fun could open potentially malicious pages, scam websites like "Google Membership Rewards", "Microsoft Security Essentials Alert", or pages designed to trick visitors into installing some adware, browser hijackers, other unwanted software.
Another problem with sites like wsoyourwi[.]fun is that most of them use one or another clickbait technique to trick their visitors into clicking the "Allow" button allowing visited pages to show their notifications.
Wsoyourwi[.]fun displays a message implying that the page cannot be loaded unless the button mentioned above is clicked. It is strongly recommended not to agree to see notifications from pages like wsoyourwi[.]fun. In most cases, their notifications contain shady ads, links to malicious pages, etc.
PUAs can be designed to gather browsing-related information like IP addresses, geolocations, entered search queries, URLs of visited pages, and so on. It is known that there are PUAs that collect personal information.
It is not safe to have PUAs installed because the information gathered by them could be misused for marketing purposes, sold to third parties (potentially cyber criminals), or misused in other ways.
Also, PUAs can generate various ads, for example, coupons, banners, surveys, pop-up ads. By clicking on those ads, users unknowingly execute scripts designed to download or even install some unwanted software. Although, it is more common that those ads are used to advertise questionable websites.

It is worth mentioning that most of the apps downloaded and installed by users unintentionally do not improve the browsing experience, include any features, or are useful in some other way. Usually, PUAs are designed to open shady addresses, generate advertisements, and (or) gather various information.
In other words, they are useless to their users and can be the culprit of various issues (e.g., problems related to online privacy, browsing safety). Users who have an app of this kind installed on a browser or computer should get rid of it as soon as possible.
How did adware install on my computer?
It is common that users allow for potentially unwanted applications to be downloaded or installed together with other, mainly free programs. It happens when those applications are included in downloaders or installers as extra offers (bundled together with other programs), and users do not opt them out.
As a rule, users can decline unwanted offers via "Advanced", "Custom", "Manual" or other settings, or checkboxes available in downloaders, installers that are used to promote PUAs.
In some cases, users cause unwanted downloads, installations via deceptive advertisements - by clicking on ads designed to execute certain scripts.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Questionable websites, third-party downloaders (and installers), Peer-to-Peer networks like torrent clients, eMule, free file hosting pages, etc., are not reliable sources for downloading or installing programs. It is advisable to download all apps (or files) from official websites and direct links.
Advertisements appearing on questionable pages should never be clicked as well. If clicked, they may open other unreliable websites, or cause undesired downloads, installations.
Downloaders and installers that have any settings (like "Custom", "Advanced"), or some checkboxes should be checked for bundled applications. Those applications should be declined before finishing downloads, installations.
Suspicious, unwanted plug-ins, add-ons, extensions installed on a browser should be removed from it. Programs installed on the operating system should be uninstalled too.
If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
