What is get-your[.]cash?

Either way, it is highly advisable not to trust get-your[.]cash or any other page of this type. It is worthwhile to mention that users do not visit such pages on purpose.
In most cases, they get opened through installed potentially unwanted applications (PUAs), deceptive advertisements, or other unreliable pages.
Typically, websites like get-your[.]cash are designed to trick visitors into allowing them to show notifications: they display some deceptive message (use a clickbait technique) encouraging them to click the "Allow" button. For instance, they load a fake CAPTCHA test claiming that visitors need to click the "Allow" button to prove that they are not a robot.

A couple of examples of notifications that get-your[.]cash displays are provided below. Another problem with these pages is that they can open untrustworthy pages, for example, pages like "You Are Our Winner Today!", "Important Defender Update Available", "Error Code: #2c522hq8wwj791", download pages for browser hijackers, adware, and so on.

How did adware install on my computer?
It is common that users download and install potentially unwanted applications together with other programs. More precisely, they cause it when PUAs are included in downloaders, installers for other programs as additional offers.
In such cases, downloaders, installers have "Manual", "Custom", "Advanced" (or other settings), or ticked checkboxes. Undesired offers can be declined by changing those settings or unticking checkboxes.
Users agree to download or install bundled apps when they finish downloads or installations without making any changes. In some cases, users unintentionally download or install unwanted apps by clicking deceptive advertisements.
Although, when they click ads that are designed to run certain scripts. It is worthwhile to mention that such ads appear mostly on questionable websites.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Applications should be downloaded from official websites (and through direct links). It is not safe to use third-party downloaders (or installers), unofficial web pages, Peer-to-Peer networks (e.g., torrent clients, eMule).
They can be used to distribute unwanted applications that may be malicious. Downloaders and installers that have settings like "Custom", "Advanced", "Manual", or ticked checkboxes are likely to be bundled with potentially unwanted apps.
Therefore, downloaders, installers should be checked for unwanted offers, and those offers should be declined before finishing downloads, installations. Additionally, it is recommended not to click ads while visiting questionable pages.
Quite often, those ads are designed to promote shady pages or cause unwanted downloads, installations. Unwanted, unknown, or suspicious extensions, add-ons, or plug-ins installed on a browser or programs of this kind installed on the operating system should be removed.
If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
