Notadvertise[.]com in detail

Notadvertise[.]com displays a fake CAPTCHA with a message instructing visitors to click the "Allow" button to prove that they are not robots. This page uses a clickbait technique to trick visitors into allowing to show notifications. After inspecting notifications displayed by notadvertise[.]com, our team learned that they promote various scams, shady apps, and potentially malicious pages.

We also found that notadvertise[.]com can redirect visitors to notadslife[.]com - another website that uses the same clickbait technique (displays similar content) to trick visitors into clicking the "Allow" button.

More about websites of this type

Pages like notadvertise[.]com are promoted via illegal movie streaming, torrent sites (and similar websites), shady advertisements, and advertising-supported applications. Clicking on notifications displayed by such pages can open malicious pages.

There are many websites of this type on the Internet, some examples are cleancaptcha[.]top, easydating[.]top, and captcha-test[.]top.

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

Notadvertise[.]com cannot show notifications without permission. It displays them because it has been allowed to do so. Websites receive permission to show notifications after clicking the "Allow" (or similar) button while visiting them. This button is displayed by a web browser.

Remember that legitimate pages never show messages instructing visitors to click the "Allow" button to prove that they are not robots, play videos, download files, etc. Click the "Block" button every time a suspicious page asks for permission to show notifications or close that page.

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.
