What is eyourcom[.]fun?
It is uncommon for websites like eyourcom[.]fun to be visited intentionally. Typically, users end up on them by clicking deceptive advertisements, visiting various untrustworthy websites.
It is also common that pages like eyourcom[.]fun get opened by potentially unwanted applications (PUAs) that users have unknowingly downloaded and installed on their browsers or computers.
It is noteworthy that there are many pages like eyourcom[.]fun on the Internet, for example, hotlocalchat[.]com, questicre[.]top, and ompanied[.]top. All of them are designed to display deceptive content and promote other unreliable pages.
As mentioned previously, eyourcom[.]fun (and other pages of this type) is designed to load its content or open a couple of other questionable websites. What it does depends on the geolocation of its visitors.
Usually, sites like eyourcom[.]fun are used to promote deceptive download pages for unwanted software (e.g., browser hijackers, adware), scam pages used to extract personal information or trick visitors into purchasing unnecessary software or paying money for something else (e.g., "Chance To Win The New iPad Pro", "MS-Windows Support Alert").
In other words, pages like eyourcom[.]fun rarely open trustworthy, harmless websites. Another important detail about eyourcom[.]fun and other pages like it is that most of them use one or another clickbait technique to trick visitors into clicking the "Allow" button. In other words, websites like eyourcom[.]fun are designed to trick visitors into allowing them to deliver notifications.
This particular site displays a message "explaining" that it is necessary to click the "Allow" button to continue loading the page. Usually, notifications from pages like eyourcom[.]fun are used to advertise potentially malicious websites or applications.
Therefore, it is strongly recommended not to agree to receive notifications from eyourcom[.]fun and similar sites. It is common that pages like eyourcom[.]fun get opened by installed PUAs.
Apps of this kind often are designed to display ads and gather various data as well. Typically, they generate coupons, banners, surveys, pop-ups, and other ads.
It is important to mention that ads generated by PUAs can open untrustworthy pages or cause unwanted downloads, installations by running certain scripts. Examples of data that PUAs can be designed to collect are IP addresses, entered search queries, geolocations, addresses of visited websites, and other browsing data.
Sometimes apps of this kind can be used to record personal, sensitive data. It means that their developers could sell gathered information to third parties (potentially cybercriminals), use it for marketing purposes.
Moreover, they could use collected sensitive data to commit identity fraud, steal personal accounts, make unauthorized transactions, etc.

To sum up, websites like eyourcom[.]fun should not be trusted. The same applies to other pages that they are designed to promote and PUAs.
It is worthwhile to mention that sometimes users download and install PUAs because those apps are advertised as useful, legitimate.
However, most users download and install PUAs unknowingly. In one way or another, apps of this kind should never be installed on browsers or computers - their users are likely to encounter issues related to online privacy, browsing safety, or experience other problems.
How did adware install on my computer?
In some cases, users download or install potentially unwanted applications through deceptive advertisements - by clicking ads that are capable of executing certain scripts. However, it is more common that users download or install apps of this kind together with other programs.
To be more precise, users download or install PUAs when they are bundled in downloaders or installers for other programs and they do not opt them out.
Typically, users can opt out unwanted apps (decline offers to download or install PUAs) via "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar settings or by unticking ticked checkboxes that downloaders or installers have. However, not all users do that when they download or install software.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Third-party downloaders and installers, Peer-to-Peer networks (like torrent clients, eMule, etc.), unofficial websites, and other sources or tools for downloading or installing programs can be used to distribute various PUAs. Moreover, they can be used to trick users into installing malware.
It is recommended to download software (and files) from official websites and through direct links. Downloads and installations should not be finished without checking downloaders and installers for "Advanced", "Custom", "Manual" settings, or checkboxes.
It is common that those settings or checkboxes can be used to decline offers to download or install bundled apps. Advertisements displayed on questionable, untrustworthy websites should not be trusted (clicked). It is common that users open shady pages or even cause unwanted downloads or installations by clicking those ads.
Unwanted, unknown extensions, add-ons, plug-ins installed on a browser should be uninstalled. Suspicious software installed on the operating system should be removed 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.
