A couple of examples of pages like ngthatwe[.]fun are ndmeeting[.]fun, rdsb21[.]club, and bengekoo[.]com. Typically, these pages display questionable content and open other untrustworthy sites.
At first, ngthatwe[.]fun detects its visitor's IP address (geolocation). Depending on the visitor's geolocation, ngthatwe[.]fun opens a couple of other shady websites or displays its content. More often than not, pages like ngthatwe[.]fun open pages that cannot be trusted. For example, deceptive pages that are used to trick visitors into downloading and installing browser hijackers, adware, or other potentially unwanted applications. Also, those pages open various scams like "Google Membership Rewards", "Your System Detected Some Unusual Activity", and so on. In one way or another, most of the websites opened by sites like ngthatwe[.]fun cannot be trusted.

It is common that browsers open sites like ngthatwe[.]fun because there is a potentially unwanted application installed on them. It is noteworthy that apps of this kind can be designed to collect details related to user's browsing activities (like IP addresses, geolocations, addresses of visited websites, entered search queries, etc.). Moreover, they can be designed to record sensitive data as well. It is recommended not to have such apps installed on browsers or computers because their developers may sell gathered information to third parties (potentially cyber criminals) or misuse it to generate revenue in some other way (e.g., use it for marketing purposes). Another issue with PUAs is that they can be designed to generate various ads (coupons, banners, surveys, pop-up ads, etc.). Their ads often are designed to open untrustworthy websites or run certain scripts that cause download or even installation of some PUA. These are the main reasons why PUAs should not be installed.

How did adware install on my computer?
Quite often, potentially unwanted applications are distributed through downloaders and installers for other programs. In such cases, those apps are integrated downloaders, installers as additional offers. This distribution method is known as "bundling". Usually, unwanted applications can be opted out (offers to download, install them declined) via "Custom", "Advanced", "Manual" settings (or by unticking certain checkboxes). Users who leave those settings unchanged allow for bundled apps to be downloaded or installed together with other programs. Sometimes unwanted downloads or installations are caused through deceptive ads - when uses click on ads designed to execute certain scripts.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
It is recommended not to trust downloads that come from questionable websites, Peer-to-Peer networks (like torrent clients, eMule), third-party downloaders, and other sources of this kind, or use third-party installers. It is recommended to use official websites and direct download links only. Downloaders, installers with "Custom", "Advanced" and other settings or some checkboxes should be checked for offers to download or install various PUAs. It is common that downloaders, installers of this kind are bundled with unwanted apps. Therefore, downloads and installations should not be finished without declining unwanted offers. Furthermore, it is recommended to avoid clicking on ads if they appear on questionable websites. It is common for those ads to be used to promote shady websites. In some cases, they are designed to run scripts that cause download or even installation unwanted software. Any unwanted apps (extensions, plug-ins, or add-ons) installed on a web browser should be removed. The same should be done with programs of this kind installed on the operating system. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
