Also Known As: Ads by myhypenews.com
Damage level: Medium

What kind of page is myhypenews[.]com?

Our team investigated myhypenews[.]com and found that it displays a deceptive message to lure visitors into agreeing to receive its notifications. We discovered myhypenews[.]com while examining sites that use rogue advertising networks (display shady ads and redirect to pages like myhypenews[.]com).

myhypenews[.]com ads

Myhypenews[.]com in detail

Myhypenews[.]com displays a message instructing visitors to click the "Allow" button to subscribe to the push notifications and continue watching. That message implies that a video cannot be played while myhypenews[.]com does not have permission to deliver notifications.

We inspected notifications from myhypenews[.]com and found that they promote various scams ("special offers"), offer to remove useless files, etc. Clicking notifications sent from myhypenews[.]com can open websites designed to trick visitors into providing sensitive information, downloading potentially malicious software, calling fake technical support numbers, etc.

In addition to using a clickbait technique to lure visitors into clicking the "Allow" button, myhypenews[.]com may redirect to other pages of this kind (including virtually identical websites). Thus, it is recommended not to visit this site and never agree to receive notifications from it.

More about pages of this type

Websites of this type rarely are visited on purpose. Most users end up on them via shady advertisements, notifications delivered by similar pages, or through illegal movie streaming pages, torrent sites, and other pages that use rogue advertising networks.

There are many pages similar to myhypenews[.]com on the Internet. Some examples are newspoldays[.]site, daphomost[.]com, and ourbestspot[.]com. All of these pages use deceptive techniques to trick visitors into allowing them to send notifications.

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

Websites receive permission to display notifications when visitors click the "Allow" (or equivalent) button that browsers display when pages want to show notifications. They cannot do that without permission. The same applies to myhypenews[.]com. The only reason why it displays notifications is that it was visited and allowed to show them.

How to prevent deceptive sites from delivering spam notifications?

Close websites claiming that you have to click the "Allow" button to prove that you are not a robot, play a video, confirm your age, etc., or click "Always Block", "Block", or a similar button when shady pages ask for permission to show notifications. 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.
