Beta-one[.]net page in detail

Beta-one[.]net uses a clickbait technique to trick visitors into allowing it to show notifications - it displays a message (a fake CAPTCHA) suggesting that visitors need to prove that they are not robots by clicking the "Allow" button. Notifications from beta-one[.]netcom are used to promote untrustworthy websites.

Beta-one[.]net displays notifications used to trick users into providing personal information, to promote download pages for browser hijackers, adware, and other potentially unwanted applications (PUAs), and so on. The beta-one[.]net page itself can open untrustworthy websites as well.

Beta-one[.]net and similar pages in general

Beta-one[.]net and similar pages are promoted through potentially unwanted applications, shady advertisements, and questionable pages. A couple of examples of pages that beta-one[.]net (or its notifications) might open are "Win The New iPhone 12", "Code 0x03A10 (0E10)", and "Your Device Might Have Security Issues".

How did adware install on my computer?

A lot of users download and install potentially unwanted applications when these apps are distributed through downloaders or installers for other programs. Users agree to download or install PUAs when they leave "Custom", "Advanced" and other similar settings unchanged (when they do not deselect optional downloads or installations).

Also, users download and installs PUAs by clicking on deceptive ads designed to run certain scripts (typically, those ads appear on dubious pages) or through fake installers.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

Third-party downloaders and installers, unofficial websites, Peer-to-Peer networks, and similar sources are not trustworthy. Files and programs should be downloaded from legitimate websites and via direct links. Downloaders and installers that have any settings should be checked for optional downloads or installations.

Advertisements that unreliable websites display (or ads displayed by installed PUAs) 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.
