Browser notification spam in general
These websites display browser notifications promoting scams and malicious software. While legitimate content can be encountered through these ads - it is highly unlikely to be endorsed by its developers. In many cases, scammers abuse affiliate programs of genuine products in order to acquire illegitimate commissions for the promotion.
How did cirlaing[.]com gain permission to deliver spam notifications?
Websites cannot deliver browser notifications without user permission. If you are seeing advertisements from cirlaing[.]com - it means that you've likely visited this page and selected "Allow", "Allow Notifications", or an analogous option presented on it.
How to prevent deceptive sites from delivering spam notifications?
To avoid receiving unwanted browser notifications, do not permit suspect websites to display them (i.e., do not click "Allow", "Allow Notifications", etc.). We advise either ignoring or denying the notification requests (i.e., pressing "Block", "Block Notifications", etc.).
Should your browser continuously force-open dubious sites, it could be caused by the presence of advertising-supported software (adware) on the device. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
