What is ooddeco[.]online?
Ooddeco[.]online loads deceptive content or opens questionable websites - it depends on its visitor's Internet Protocol address/geolocation. It is similar to stoachaigog[.]com, beastclick[.]biz, ackbrdown[.]biz, and many other websites.
Typically, pages like ooddeco[.]online are promoted through various untrustworthy advertisements or websites and potentially unwanted applications (PUAs). Typically, users do not visit them (or install PUAs) intentionally.
It is noteworthy that PUAs tend to be designed to collect data related to browsing habits and (or) display advertisements as well.
Ooddeco[.]online displays a message asking to click the "Allow" button to continue loading it. It is very common for pages like ooddeco[.]online to use clickbait techniques to trick visitors into agreeing to receive notifications (into clicking the "Allow" button).
For example, they display messages suggesting that visitors need to click the "Allow" button to prove that they are not robots or are not too young to visit them. In one way or another, it is strongly recommended not to agree to receive notifications from untrustworthy pages (including ooddeco[.]online).
Most of them show notifications used to promote untrustworthy pages, applications, and so on. As mentioned in the introduction paragraph, ooddeco[.]online can open questionable websites as well.
It likely promotes sites designed to trick visitors into installing browser hijackers, adware, or other PUAs, entering personal information, etc. For example, "Google Membership Rewards", "Important Defender Update Available", and "Instagram Copyright Infringement".
These are the main reasons why it is highly advisable to avoid visiting ooddeco[.]online or similar pages. If a browser opens them automatically, then it is likely that it has some PUA installed on it.
Potentially unwanted applications can collect various data and display advertisements as well. It is common that they are used to gather browsing-related data, for example, Internet Protocol addresses, entered search queries, geolocations, addresses of visited websites.
In some cases, they are used to collect passwords, credit card details, and other data that could be misused to steal identities, online accounts, make unauthorized purchases, or sold to third parties (potentially cybercriminals). Examples of ads that PUAs usually display are coupons, pop-up ads, surveys, banners.
Usually, those ads are used to promote shady, potentially malicious pages. Also, they can be designed to execute certain scripts and download or even install unwanted software.
Therefore, users who have apps of this kind installed on their browsers or computers should remove them as soon as possible.

In conclusion, ooddeco[.]online and other pages of this type are promoted through PUAs, unreliable ads, and websites. It is worth mentioning that most PUAs are useless to their users, even if they are advertised as legitimate applications that are supposed to include some features, etc.
Typically, they are designed to generate revenue for their developers and nothing more. Either way, any installed PUAs should be removed as soon as possible and never installed again.
How did adware install on my computer?
It is common for potentially unwanted apps to be distributed by using a deceptive marketing method called "bundling". In such cases, PUAs are included in downloaders and installers for other programs as additional offers.
This method works when users finish downloading or installing programs that are bundled with PUAs without changing certain settings. In most cases, offers to download or install potentially unwanted applications can be declined via "Advanced", "Custom" or other settings, or by unticking ticked checkboxes that downloaders, installers have.
Another deceptive way to distribute PUAs is to design advertisements to execute certain scripts. Users cause unexpected downloads, installations by clicking those ads. In most cases, ads of this type appear on dubious sites.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
Programs, files should not be downloaded from unofficial pages or via third-party downloaders, Peer-to-Peer networks (e.g., torrent clients, eMule), and other sources of this kind, or installed via third-party installers. Those sources can be used to distribute potentially unwanted, malicious apps.
Applications should be downloaded from official web pages and via direct download links. Downloads and installations should not be finished without checking "Advanced", "Custom" and other settings, and declining offers to download or install additionally included unwanted software.
It is worth remembering that downloaders and installers that have the aforementioned settings tend to include additional offers. Ads that appear on shady pages should not be clicked as well, those ads can be designed to cause downloads, installations of unwanted applications, or open potentially malicious websites.
If there are any unknown, unwanted, suspicious extensions, plug-ins, or add-ons installed on a browser (or programs of this kind installed on the operating system), then they 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.
