More about pages of this type

In most cases, sites like ptaimpeerte[.]com get opened via illegal movie streaming pages, torrent sites, etc., deceptive advertisements, or installed advertising-supported apps. Users do not open them on purpose. It is important to know that notifications shown by such pages can open malicious websites.

Examples of similar sites are adsandcomputer[.]com, notifinfoback[.]com, and extravideo[.]live.

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

Websites do not show notifications unless visitors agree to receive them. If the ptaimpeerte[.]com shows notifications, it means that it was visited, and the "Allow" button was clicked while visiting it. Browsers display a pop-up window with "Allow" and "Block" buttons when websites want to show notifications.

How to prevent deceptive sites from delivering spam notifications?

Do not trust websites instructing you to click the "Allow" (or similar) button to play a video, download a file, prove that you are not a robot, confirm your age, etc. Close such pages or click the "Block" (or "Block Notifications") button. No page will display notifications without your permission.

If you are receiving unwanted notifications, 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.
