Delete ads

Delete ads is a generic fake video game news website that pushes a social-engineering scam that tricks users into allowing advertisements on the desktop. When you visit the site, a browser notification will appear saying “ wants to show notifications”. If you allow it, the site will spam your desktop with intrusive, potentially dangerous ads. is identical to,,, and They all are made to appear like they’re entertainment news websites but they don’t actually have any content on them. This site is supposed to be some kind of video game news website but it’s not particularly convincing. It only displays a message saying you need to allow notifications to continue to the website. A browser alert will appear saying “ wants to show notifications”. If you give this website permission to show push notifications, you will start seeing advertisements on your desktop. Seeing as itself is very questionable, the advertisements it shows will be worse.’s ads would appear similar to where legitimate notifications pop up so it is possible to confuse them. The ads may invite you to download some kind of questionable or even outright malicious program. Since the site will only spam you with ads, giving it permission to show you notifications is not recommended. Fortunately, the permission is easily revocable in your browser’s settings. If you don’t know how to do it, use the directions provided at the very end of the report.

Despite the “show notifications” feature being misused by sites like, it is completely legitimate. Provided the site you want to see notifications from is safe, you can give it permission. The contents of those notifications depend on what the site usually posts. For example, if you give a news website permission, you will see news alerts on your desktop. When you no longer want to see the notifications, simply revoke that permission.

We recommend that you identify the reason why you’re randomly redirected to sites like Scan your computer with anti-virus software for adware. If adware is the issue, only removing it would stop the redirects. However, it’s also possible that the sites you visit trigger redirects. In which case, installing an adblocker program would help if you regularly visit those sites.

Redirects can be triggered by adware

There are two possible reasons why random redirects are happening. Most likely, it happens when you browse high-risk websites where clicking on anything often triggers a pop-up or a redirect. It’s mostly sites that have adult or pirated content that are considered to be high-risk due to the ads they host. If you visit such sites regularly, install an adblocker program.

However, if you are redirected on a regular basis even when the sites you are browsing are safe, your computer may have adware installed. It’s not a serious computer infection and it mainly focuses on exposing users to as much advertisement content as possible. These kinds of infections, including adware, browser hijackers, and potentially unwanted programs (PUPs), install using the free software bundling method, which essentially means they come attached to freeware as additional offers. These offers are permitted to install alongside freeware automatically, without needing permission. Software bundling as an installation method is quite frowned upon and most programs that use it are detected as potential threats by anti-virus programs.

The added offers that come together with freeware are optional but they’re initially hidden, which means many users are unable to deselect them simply because they don’t pay enough attention to notice them. If you want to correctly install free programs, always use Advanced (Custom) settings instead of Default. The installation window will suggest using Default settings but those settings will conceal every offer that has been added. If you opt for Advanced, on the other hand, you will have the option to review all offers and deselect the ones you do not want. Keep in mind that even if some of the offers seem useful, you should not be permitting them to install. removal

If you have allowed the site to show notifications, and it’s now spamming your desktop with ads, you need to revoke that permission immediately. You can easily do that via your browser’s settings and it will only take a second. If don’t know what to do, use the below-provided instructions. In addition to removing, you should also review all other sites that have permission and delete the unwanted ones.

  • For Mozilla Firefox: Open menu (the three bars top-right corner) -> Options -> Privacy & Security. Scroll down to Permissions, press on Settings next to Notifications, and remove and any other questionable website. You can permanently turn off these notification requests by checking the “Block new requests asking to allow notifications” box in the same Notifications settings.
  • For Google Chrome: Open menu (the three dots top-right corner) -> Settings -> Privacy and security -> Site Settings. Click on Notifications under Permissions, and remove and any other questionable website. You can stop these notification requests permanently by toggling off “Sites can ask to send notifications”.
  • For Microsoft Edge: Open menu (the three dots top-right corner) -> Settings -> Cookies and site permissions -> Notifications. Review which sites have permission and remove and any other questionable website. You can permanently turn off these notification requests by toggling off “Ask before sending”.

Because adware may be causing you to get redirected, we suggest performing a scan of the computer with anti-virus software like WiperSoft. Adware, while not very serious, can be a handful due to its persistence so using anti-virus programs is the simplest option. However, you can delete adware manually, the only issue being that it may take longer. Once the adware is no longer present on your computer, the redirects will stop.

If adware is not present, make sure to install an adblocker program. It’s likely that the high-risk websites you visit and interact with trigger the redirects. An adblocker program would either block the redirects altogether or close the windows as they pop up.
