Lmonopolic[.]com page in detail

Most of those notifications claimed that our computer may be (or is) infected with viruses and offered to purchase a McAfee subscription.

Browser notification spam in general

Websites like lmonopolic[.]com can open other pages designed to trick visitors into agreeing to receive notifications. Also, they can show notifications (or open websites) used to promote malicious applications. Thus, pages of this type cannot be trusted and should never be allowed to show notifications.

More examples of websites that are more or less similar to lmonopolic[.]com are myhugewords[.]com, see-what-is-buzzing[.]com, investmeny[.]org.

How did lmonopolic[.]com gain permission to deliver spam notifications?

Lmonopolic[.]com is a website that uses a clickbait technique to get permission to show notifications. It claims that visitors have to click the "Allow" button to watch some video. Like any other page, lmonopolic[.]com cannot show notifications unless visitors click the "Allow" button while visiting it.

How to prevent deceptive sites from delivering spam notifications?

Click the "Block", "Block Notifications", or a similar button (depending on the web browser) to block unwanted notifications. Do not click the "Allow" button while visiting questionable sites. Another way to avoid receiving unwanted notifications is to close websites asking for permission to show them before clicking anything in a pop-up displayed by a browser.

If you are receiving unwanted notifications, 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.
