Browser notification spam in general
Arminuntor[.]com, totalsystematicpcanalytic[.]info, and systemsecurity[.]click are just a couple examples of rogue webpages we have examined recently. Pages of this kind deliver browser notifications that primarily endorse deceptive/malicious material.
It is noteworthy that while legitimate products and services may be encountered via these ads – they are highly unlikely to be promoted in this manner by any official parties. It is most probable that this endorsement is undertaken by scammers who abuse the content's affiliate programs to obtain illegitimate commissions.
How did lifepcessentials[.]com gain permission to deliver spam notifications?
Websites can only display browser notifications with user consent. Therefore, if you are seeing these adverts from lifepcessentials[.]com – it means that when this page was visited, permission for the delivery was given by clicking "Allow", "Allow Notifications", or a similar option.
How to prevent deceptive sites from delivering spam notifications?
To avoid receiving unwanted browser notifications – do not enable suspect sites to deliver them (i.e., do not click "Allow", "Allow Notifications", etc.). We advise ignoring or denying notification delivery from such pages (i.e., pressing "Block", "Block Notifications", etc.).
Should you keep experiencing continuous unprompted redirects to questionable websites, it could be due to adware installed on 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.
