What kind of page is saveprivatedata[.]com?

While inspecting dubious websites, we discovered the saveprivatedata[.]com rogue page. It is designed to promote scams, push spam browser notifications, and redirect visitors to different (likely untrustworthy/malicious) sites. Users typically enter such webpages via redirects caused by sites using rogue advertising networks.

Saveprivatedata[.]com overview

The content encountered on or through rogue websites may depend on the visitor's IP address/ geolocation. When we accessed saveprivatedata[.]com, it ran a scam. It consisted of a variety of fake elements - anti-virus program interface, system scan, and threat reports - supposedly belonging to Norton anti-virus. It must be emphasized that this deceptive content is not associated with NortonLifeLock Inc.

This scam is practically identical to "McAfee Total Protection - Your PC might be infected with viruses!" and similar to "Keep Your PC Updated With Norton!". Schemes of this kind usually promote adware, fake anti-viruses, browser hijackers, and various PUAs.

Furthermore, saveprivatedata[.]com requests visitors to enable it to deliver browser notifications. The displayed notifications/advertisements endorse unreliable/harmful sites and software, online scams, and even malware.

To summarize, via webpages like saveprivatedata[.]com - users can experience system infections, serious privacy issues, financial losses, and identity theft.

Browser notification spam in general

We have analyzed countless rogue pages; swooflia[.]xyztooklichair[.]complacebonusextra[.]com, and protectorofpower[.]xyz are just a few examples.

Their browser notifications mainly endorse deceptive and malicious material. It is improbable for any legitimate products encountered through these ads to be promoted by their actual developers. Instead, this endorsement is undertaken by scammers abusing the products' affiliate programs to obtain illegitimate commissions.

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

Websites can only deliver browser notifications with user consent. Hence, you've likely entered saveprivatedata[.]com at some point and enabled it to display them. It is noteworthy that rogue webpages commonly employ deception (e.g., clickbait, fake CAPTCHA verification, etc.) - to lure users into allowing browser notification delivery.

How to prevent deceptive sites from delivering spam notifications?

To avoid receiving undesirable browser notifications, do not click "Allow", "Allow Notifications", or similar options presented on questionable webpages. We advise ignoring notification delivery or denying it - pressing "Block", "Block Notifications", or an analogous option.

If you experience random unprompted redirects to suspicious sites, it could be due to adware installed onto the browser or 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.

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.
