Usually, the content on these pages is not trustworthy, often deceptive, and they are used to promote other questionable websites. It is important to mention that users do not visit sites like ndmeeting[.]fun intentionally.
Typically, they are promoted through shady advertisements, other unreliable websites, or potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) that most users download and install unknowingly.
Usually, pages like ndmeeting[.]fun open other (about two, three) untrustworthy web pages, or they display deceptive content (it depends on the IP address/geolocation of their visitors). Some examples of pages that sites like ndmeeting[.]fun open are download pages for potentially unwanted applications (adware-type apps, browser hijackers, and other PUAs), scams like "Chance To Win The New iPad Pro", "Your System Detected Some Unusual Activity", and other sites that are not trustworthy.
Also, ndmeeting[.]fun is designed to deceive its visitors into allowing it to show notifications by using a clickbait technique. It displays a message saying to click the "Allow" button to continue. By clicking the aforementioned button on opened pages, visitors allow them to show notifications.
As a rule, notifications from pages like ndmeeting[.]fun are used to promote untrustworthy websites, questionable software, and so on. Therefore, users should never agree to receive notifications from pages like ndmeeting[.]fun or any other dubious pages.
It is worthwhile to mention that PUAs can be designed to serve coupons, banners, pop-up ads, surveys, and other unwanted advertisements. Moreover, when users click on those ads, they often allow them to open shady websites or even cause unwanted downloads, installations (there are ads that can cause it by executing certain scripts).
Another issue with PUAs is that they often operate as information tracking tools. More precisely, they collect data related to browsing habits (e.g., IP addresses, addresses of visited pages, entered search queries, geolocations).
Although, there are PUAs that can access sensitive details as well. Another issue is that gathered information could be monetized by selling it to third parties (potentially cybercriminals), using it for marketing purposes, or in some other ways.
It means that users who have apps of this kind installed on browsers or computers may encounter problems with browsing safety, online privacy, become victims of identity theft.

How did adware install on my computer?
Very often, potentially unwanted applications can be found in downloaders, installers for other programs as extra offers. In other words, developers often distribute PUAs by bundling them with other, mainly free programs.
As a rule, users can decline unwanted offers before finishing downloads, installations. It can be done via "Advanced", "Custom", "Manual" (or other) settings, or by unticking checkboxes that downloaders, installers used to distribute PUAs have.
Users download, install unwanted apps when they leave those settings unchanged. In some cases, users unknowingly cause unwanted downloads, installations by clicking on deceptive advertisements. More precisely, by clicking on ads designed to execute certain scripts.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
It is recommended not to use third-party downloaders, installers, Peer-to-Peer networks (e.g., torrent clients, eMule), unofficial websites, and other channels as tools to download or install any software. It should be downloaded only from official websites and through direct links.
Downloaders and installers with "Advanced", "Custom" or other settings or checkboxes are often used to distribute PUAs. Therefore, it is recommended not to finish downloads and installations without checking if there are any unwanted offers that could be declined.
Furthermore, advertisements that appear on various questionable websites should not be clicked. Quite often, such advertisements are used to promote other shady websites or cause unwanted downloads, installations.
Unwanted, suspicious extensions, add-ons, plug-ins installed on a web browser, and software of this kind installed on the operating system should be uninstalled.
