What kind of page is click-and-continue[.]live?

While inspecting websites that use rogue advertising networks, we discovered the click-and-continue[.]live website. It is designed to push its spam browser notifications, load questionable content, and redirect visitors to other untrustworthy/hazardous webpages.

Most visitors to click-and-continue[.]live and sites akin to it - access them via the aforementioned advertising-network-using pages.

Click-and-continue[.]live overview

When we accessed click-and-continue[.]live, it presented us with a pop-up claiming that "Your Video Is Ready/ Press Play to start the video". The text on the background urged to "Click ALLOW to confirm that you are not a robot!". The latter is a fake CAPTCHA verification intended to bait visitors into enabling click-and-continue[.]live to deliver browser notifications.

It is noteworthy that what users see a rogue webpage host/promote - may vary, as this can depend on their IP addresses/ geolocations.

Should click-and-continue[.]live be permitted to display notifications, it will use them for dubious advertising. Generally, these advertisements endorse unreliable/harmful websites and software, online scams, and even malware.

Browser notification spam in general

There are thousands of websites like click-and-continue[.]live on the Internet; theironnews[.]site, worldfreshblog[.]com, next-notification[.]com, and xervoo[.]net are just a few examples of those we have previously analyzed.

The browser notifications delivered by these sites usually push untrustworthy and malicious material. However, we have noted them being used to endorse legitimate products as well. It has to be stressed that genuine developers rarely use this advertising method; typically, such promotion is undertaken by scammers using affiliate programs to obtain illegitimate commissions.

How did click-and-continue[.]live gain permission to deliver spam notifications?

Websites require user permission to deliver browser notifications. Hence, you have likely visited click-and-continue[.]live and permitted it to do so. It is worth mentioning that most rogue webpages use deception to entice/scare visitors into allowing their notifications.

How to prevent deceptive sites from delivering spam notifications?

To avoid receiving unwanted browser notifications, we advise against clicking "Allow", "Allow Notifications", or similar choices displayed by questionable websites. We recommend ignoring or denying notification requests (i.e., pressing "Block", "Block Notifications", etc.).

It is pertinent to mention that rogue/malicious sites can be force-opened by browsers affected by adware. Advertising-supported software can infiltrate systems without express user consent. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.

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.
