These sites often open other pages that use clickbait techniques to trick visitors into allowing them to show notifications. Sometimes, they (and their notifications) promote malicious apps.

How did herebelf[.]xyz gain permission to deliver spam notifications?

Herebelf[.]xyz claims that it is necessary to click the "Allow" button to continue loading its content. If this page shows notifications, it means that that button was clicked while visiting it earlier. Websites cannot display notifications without permission.

How to prevent deceptive sites from delivering spam notifications?

Click the "Block", "Block Notifications", or equivalent button every time a shady page asks for permission to show notifications or close that page. Never trust websites claiming that it is required to click the "Allow" button to prove that you are not a robot, download a file, etc.
