Thehomesail[.]com site in detail

Thehomesail[.]com asks visitors to click the "Allow" button to receive notifications from it. One of its notifications promotes a website similar to "Your Device Might Have Security Issues" (a page designed to extract personal information). Thehomesail[.]com and similar pages should never be allowed to show notifications.

It is very common for pages like thehomesail[.]com to be designed to use some clickbait technique to trick visitors into agreeing to receive notifications. For example, they load fake CAPTCHA suggesting that visitors have to click the "Allow" button to prove that they are not robots.

Also, thehomesail[.]com could open websites designed to trick visitors into providing sensitive information, downloading and installing potentially unwanted applications (for example, browser hijackers, adware), and other dubious sites.

More about potentially unwanted applications

Users do not open/visit websites like thehomesail[.]com on purpose. If a PUA designed to open websites of this type is installed on a browser or the operating system, it should be removed. Apps of this kind can be designed to collect personal information, display unwanted advertisements.

How did adware install on my computer?

PUAs can be distributed through ads, fake installers, downloaders, and installers for other programs. Users cause unwanted downloads or installations through ads by clicking on ads designed to run certain scripts. In the second case, users cause it by using deceptive installers designed to look like the installers for legitimate programs.

Users download or install unwanted apps through downloaders or installers for other programs when they do not change their settings such as "Custom", "Advanced" or other settings, or leave available checkboxes ticked.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

Apps and files downloaded from untrustworthy sources like unofficial pages, third-party downloaders should not be trusted. It is recommended to use official websites and direct links to download programs. Downloaders and installers that have "Custom", "Manual", "Advanced" or other settings (or checkboxes) should be checked for unwanted offers.

Advertisements that dubious, questionable pages have on them should not be clicked. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.

How to avoid browser notification spam?

Internet users should be very skeptical when being asked to allow notifications. While this is a useful feature that allows you to receive timely news from websites you like, deceptive marketers frequently abuse it.

Only allow notifications from websites that you fully trust. For added security - use an anti-malware application with a real-time web browsing monitor to block shady websites that tries to trick you into allowing spam notifications. We recommend using Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows.
