Chosenlove[.]com overview

The behavior of rogue webpages (i.e., what they load/endorse) may be determined by visitors' IP addresses/ geolocations.

When we accessed chosenlove[.]com, it presented us with a questionable survey, which upon completion redirected to another site that likely operates as a phishing scam. This website requests users to indicate their gender, age, email address, and write credentials for their new account. There are no guarantees that the disclosed data will not be sold to third-parties or used for malicious purposes.

Additionally, chosenlove[.]com requests visitors to enable it to deliver browser notifications. Rogue pages employ them to run intrusive advertisement campaigns. The delivered notifications/adverts promote various scams, untrustworthy/harmful websites and software, and even malware.

In summary, through sites like chosenlove[.]com - users can experience system infections, serious privacy issues, financial losses, and even identity theft.

Browser notification spam in general

There are countless rogue webpages on the Internet. We have analyzed thousands of such websites; freesamplesprousa[.]com, freeadvreviews[.]com, and mous0[.]biz are just a few examples of our latest finds.

The browser notifications these sites display - endorse deceptive and malicious content. Note that any legitimate products encountered through these ads are highly unlikely to be promoted by their real developers. Instead, this promotion is undertaken by scammers abusing the products' affiliate programs to obtain illegitimate commissions.

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

Websites cannot deliver browser notifications without user consent. If you are seeing adverts from chosenlove[.]com - this means that you have likely visited it and clicked "Allow", "Allow Notifications", or a similar option presented on this webpage.

How to prevent deceptive sites from delivering spam notifications?

To avoid receiving unwanted browser notifications, do not permit suspicious websites to deliver them (i.e., do not press "Allow", "Allow Notifications", or any analogous options). We advise ignoring or denying notification delivery requests (i.e., clicking "Block", "Block Notifications", etc.).

Should your browser randomly force-open sites without prompt, it might be caused by 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.

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.
