More about pages of this type

In most cases, websites of this type are promoted via untrustworthy advertisements and pages that use rogue advertising networks (e.g., illegal movie streaming pages and torrent sites). Sometimes, advertising-supported apps are used to promote them.

The main common attribute of these pages is that they ask for permission to display notifications using deceptive methods. They use clickbait techniques, scare tactics, or other ways to lure visitors into allowing them to deliver notifications.

Examples of similar pages are ijony[.]click, catchlucksurvey[.]top, and time-delta[.]xyz.

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

Web pages can only deliver notifications if visitors give them such permission. It means that yourdevicesprotected[.]com was visited, and the "Allow" button was clicked while visiting it. No page can show notifications without permission. As a rule, pages like yourdevicesprotected[.]com display deceptive content to lure visitors into agreeing to receive notifications.

How to prevent deceptive sites from delivering spam notifications?

Click the "Block", "Block Notifications", or equivalent button if you do not wish to receive notifications from a page (or close that page). Either way, do not click the "Allow" button. Note that legitimate/trustworthy websites never ask to click the "Allow" button to play a video, prove that you are not a robot, download a file, etc.

If you are receiving unwanted notifications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
