What kind of page is saumeechoa[.]com?
Saumeechoa[.]com is a rogue webpage that loads dubious content, promotes browser notification spam, and redirects visitors to other (likely unreliable or malicious) sites. Our researchers found this page while inspecting untrustworthy websites. Users typically access rogue sites unintentionally. Most visitors enter them via redirects caused by websites that use rogue advertising networks.
The behavior of rogue websites (i.e., what they host/promote) might depend on the visitor's IP address/ geolocation. When we accessed saumeechoa[.]com, it presented us with a video player playing the Universal Pictures film studio logo, which was interrupted by a deceptive statement - "Can't play this video! Perhaps your browser doesn't allow video playback. Please click the Allow button to watch the video".
This page contains another fake statement - "Click Allow! Please click the Allow button to watch the video". This content is intended to trick visitors into allowing saumeechoa[.]com to deliver browser notifications. When we clicked "Allow", it redirected us to the zoutubephaid[.]com notification spam promoting webpage.
Saumeechoa[.]com also displayed another proclamation on the video player, indicating that only members can watch "the movie" and that users can create a free account to do so. Statements of this kind are often designed to lure visitors into pressing presented buttons that cause redirects to dubious/hazardous sites or lead to fake registration/subscription pages that operate as phishing scams.
If websites like saumeechoa[.]com are permitted to display browser notifications, they use them to run intrusive advertisement campaigns. The delivered notifications/ads promote various scams, unreliable/harmful sites and software, and even malware.
Therefore, via webpages like saumeechoa[.]com, users can experience system infections, serious privacy issues, financial losses, and identity theft.

Browser notification spam in general
The browser notifications these pages display mainly push deceptive and malicious content. Any legitimate products endorsed via these advertisements are unlikely to be advertised by their developers. Instead, this endorsement is undertaken by scammers who abuse affiliate programs to acquire illegitimate commissions.
How did saumeechoa[.]com gain permission to deliver spam notifications?
Websites only deliver browser notifications with user consent. Like many rogue pages on the Web, saumeechoa[.]com employs clickbait to entice visitors into enabling the notifications.
How to prevent deceptive sites from delivering spam notifications?
To avoid receiving undesirable browser notifications, do not click "Allow", "Allow Notifications", or any analogous options displayed by questionable sites. We advise ignoring or denying notification delivery requests (i.e., pressing "Block", "Block Notifications", etc.).
If your browser is randomly force-opening questionable webpages, it could be due to adware installed onto it or 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.
