What kind of page is bestfunllc[.]com?
Our research team discovered the bestfunllc[.]com rogue page during a routine investigation of untrustworthy websites. The aim of this webpage is to promote browser notification spam and redirect visitors to other (likely dubious/malicious) sites. Users typically enter pages like bestfunllc[.]com via redirects caused by websites using rogue advertising networks.
It must be mentioned that how rogue webpages operate (i.e., what they host/endorse) might be dictated by the visitor's IP address/ geolocation.
When we inspected the bestfunllc[.]com site, it presented us with a fake CAPTCHA test. To elaborate, the page depicted a robot and instructed to – "Click Allow if you are not a robot". Visitors who are deceived by this bogus verification process will unintentionally permit bestfunllc[.]com to display browser notifications.
When we clicked the "Allow" button, it redirected us to notadslife[.]com – a webpage that is practically identical to bestfunllc[.]com.

Browser notification spam in general
We have investigated thousands of rogue websites; fyncenter[.]com, entmatchw[.]com, and findallincomesurvey[.]top are merely a few of our latest finds. These pages display browser notifications that promote deceptive/malicious material.
It must be stressed that while legitimate products and services may be encountered via these advertisements – they are highly unlikely to be endorsed in this manner by their developers. It is most probable that this promotion is undertaken by scammers who abuse the content's affiliate programs in order to acquire illegitimate commissions.
How did bestfunllc[.]com gain permission to deliver spam notifications?
Websites require user permission to deliver browser notifications (adverts). Therefore, if you are seeing these ads from bestfunllc[.]com – it means that you have likely entered this webpage at some point and clicked "Allow", "Allow Notifications", or a similar option.
How to prevent deceptive sites from delivering spam notifications?
If you access a questionable webpage – do not permit it to display browser notifications (i.e., do not select "Allow", "Allow Notifications", etc.). Instead, deny notification requests from such pages (i.e., click "Block", "Block Notifications", etc.) or ignore them altogether.
Should your browser continuously force-open suspicious websites, it could be due to the presence of 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.
