Browser notification spam in general
It is noteworthy that the notifications pushed by such sites are commonly used in affiliate programs. The scammers (affiliates in question) promote legitimate content to obtain illegitimate commissions.
How did myhypeposts.com gain permission to deliver spam notifications?
Websites like myhypeposts.com usually employ deceptive messages that instruct visitors to enable the display of browser notifications. In other words, users are tricked into pressing "Allow", "Allow Notifications", or other consent options. The deception is necessary since sites cannot deliver notifications without user permission.
How to prevent deceptive sites from delivering spam notifications?
It is crucial to exercise caution when browsing to avoid unwanted and malicious content available on the Web. Untrustworthy websites that request the enablement of browser notifications should not receive permission to do so (i.e., the "Allow", "Allow Notifications", etc. - options must not be clicked). Instead, these requests have to be ignored or denied (i.e., "Block", "Block Notifications", etc.).
It is noteworthy that if a browser is force-opening rogue/malicious pages, it is likely due to the presence of adware on the system. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
