How to stop the timespace.top website from delivering notifications/ads

Also Known As: Ads by timespace.top
Damage level: Medium

What kind of page is timespace[.]top?

Timespace[.]top is a rogue page that our researchers found while inspecting dubious websites. This webpage promotes spam browser notifications and can redirect visitors to other (likely deceptive/malicious) sites.

Most users access pages like timespace[.]top via redirects caused by sites using rogue advertising networks, spam notifications, intrusive ads, or installed adware.

Timespace[.]top overview

The operation of rogue websites (i.e., what they load and/or endorse) may vary based on visitors' IP addresses/ geolocations.

When we investigated timespace[.]top, it presented us with fake CAPTCHA verification - "Press 'Allow' to verify, that you are not a robot". These instructions are intended to deceive visitors into allowing timespace[.]top to deliver browser notifications.

When we clicked the "Allow" button, it resulted in a redirect to a webpage running a scam similar to "Win A New iPhone 13", "AMAZON TRIAL", "Chrome Search Contest 2022", and countless others.

Rogue sites use their notifications to run intrusive advertisement campaigns. If allowed, they spam users with ads promoting various scams, untrustworthy/harmful software, and malware.

In summary, through webpages like timespace[.]top - users can experience system infections, serious privacy issues, financial losses, and even identity theft.

Browser notification spam in general

Allactualspot[.]comwinsafe[.]xyzmydailydatareport[.]site, and captchafine[.]live are merely some examples of rogue websites that we have inspected recently.

These pages deliver browser notifications endorsing deceptive and malicious content. It is noteworthy that any legitimate products/services encountered via these adverts are most likely promoted by scammers who abuse affiliate programs in order to acquire commissions fraudulently.

How did timespace[.]top gain permission to deliver spam notifications?

Websites need user consent to deliver browser notifications. Therefore, you have likely accessed timespace[.]top and consented by clicking "Allow", "Allow Notifications", or a similar option presented on this page.

How to prevent deceptive sites from delivering spam notifications?

To avoid receiving undesirable browser notifications, do not permit suspect sites to deliver them. In other words, do not click "Allow", "Allow Notifications", or any analogous options displayed on such webpages. Instead, ignore or deny notification delivery by pressing "Block", "Block Notifications", or a similar option.

Should your browser continuously force-open questionable websites without prompt, it could be caused by the presence of advertising-supported software (adware). If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, 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.
