Browser notification spam in general

Sometimes, notifications coming from pages like kap03ut-editi56on[.]xyz can be used to promote legitimate software or other products. Affiliates use those notifications to collect illegitimate commissions. Legitimate developers do not use scare tactics or other deceptive methods to promote their software/services.

How did kap03ut-editi56on[.]xyz gain permission to deliver spam notifications?

Websites like kap03ut-editi56on[.]xyz cannot show notifications without permission. Most of them use clickbait techniques to trick visitors into clicking the "Allow", "Allow Notifications", or a similar button. Users agree to receive notifications from websites by clicking that button (it usually appears in a pop-up window displayed by a browser).

How to prevent deceptive sites from delivering spam notifications?

Do not click the "Allow" or similar button when a website like kap03ut-editi56on[.]xyz is opened. Close the page and (or) click the "Block", "Always Block" (or similar) button.
