Browser notification spam in general
We have analyzed thousands of rogue pages; checkingsystem[.]site, euprotection[.]click, getcaptcha[.]top, reliablepcstrength[.]com, and lntriguingdate[.]com are merely some of our latest finds.
These websites display browser notifications that endorse deceptive and malicious content. Note that while genuine products/services can be encountered via these ads – they are most likely promoted by scammers abusing the affiliate programs to contain illegitimate commissions.
How did uddininc[.]com gain permission to deliver spam notifications?
Websites can only deliver browser notifications (adverts) with user permission. Therefore, you have likely entered the uddininc[.]com page and pressed "Allow", "Allow Notifications", or an analogous option presented on this page.
How to prevent deceptive sites from delivering spam notifications?
To avoid receiving unwanted browser notifications – do not enable questionable sites to deliver them (i.e., do not click "Allow", "Allow Notifications", etc.). Instead, deny notification requests (i.e., press "Block", "Block Notifications", etc.) or ignore them altogether.
Should you keep experiencing continuous unprompted redirects to suspicious websites, it could be caused by adware installed onto the browser or system. If your computer is already infected with rogue applications, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate them.
