What kind of page is notifsystems[.]com?

While examining the notifsystems[.]com website, we found that it uses deception to trick visitors into agreeing to receive notifications and redirects to other pages. Like all the other sites of this type, notifsystems[.]com is not visited on purpose. We encountered this site while analyzing websites that use rogue advertising networks.

notifsystems[.]com ads

Notifsystems[.]com in detail

Notifsystems[.]com instructs visitors to resolve a fake reCAPTCHA by clicking the "Allow" button. It suggests that by clicking that button, visitors will confirm that they are not robots and will be able to continue to the page. Notifsystems[.]com uses a clickbait technique to get permission to show notifications.

We found that at least two notifications from notifsystems[.]com offer users to remove annoying pop-ups, malware, and other unwanted software. Those notifications can open websites hosting questionable/potentially malicious apps. Also, they can open various scam pages and other untrustworthy (and even malicious) pages.

Also, notifsystems[.]com can redirect to other sites. While we examined this page, it redirected us to the AliExpress website. When sites like notifsystems[.]com promote legitimate pages, services, products, etc., they usually are operated by affiliates who aim to collect illegitimate commissions.

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

Notifsystems[.]com (and similar pages) is designed to trick visitors into allowing it to show notifications.

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.
