Delete pop-ups

Delete pop-ups is one those questionable websites that pushes a social engineering scam. When you get redirected to the site, you will see a pop-up saying “ wants to show notifications”. If press “Allow”, you will be spammed with ads, even when not browsing.


Browsers have a feature that allows websites to send users notifications, if users grant the sites permission. That’s why you see browser pop-ups appear when visiting certain sites that ask you to give them permission to show notifications. If you allow, for example, a news website to show you notifications, you would start getting notifications about important news stories, even when you’re not on the site. This can be a useful feature if you want to be updated about news stories, discounts, updates, etc. However, unsurprisingly, dubious sites like misuse this feature to spam users with advertisements to generate revenue.

There are two ways you could end up on sites like You were either redirected by adware installed on your computer, or you were browsing a high-risk website and clicked on something that triggered a redirect. If it’s the latter, use adblocker when visiting certain websites and you should be okay.

It primarily tries to expose users to ads. It installs using software bundling, which allows it to come attached to free software as an extra offer and install alongside without requiring permission. The offers are optional so you can prevent their installation, fairly easily at that. When installing free programs, opt for Advanced (Custom) settings instead of Default. Advanced will make all added offers visible, and you will be able to deselect all of them. All you need to do is uncheck the boxes. Keep in mind that most free programs will come with these offers, so you always have to deselect them. removal
