Delete ads

Delete ads is one of many scam websites that take advantage of a legitimate browser feature in order to spam users with ads. “ wants to show notifications” is the message with which you will be greeted when you get redirected to the site. Pressing the “Allow” button would allow the site to show you advertisements directly on your desktop.


Sites like are very common because they are an effective way to trick users into allowing ads to appear on their desktops. They misuse a browser feature that allows sites to show users notifications if granted permission. But instead of useful content, and similar sites spam users with ads, potentially dangerous ones at that. If you have granted the site permission, clicking on any notifications is not a good idea because you may be led to malicious sites that promote scams and malware. In fact, you should be very careful to not download anything from those notifications. Fortunately, you can easily remove from the list of sites that have permission to show notifications, and the sooner you do that, the better.

While allowing to show notifications is a mistake, the same does not apply to legitimate sites. If there is a website you frequent, you can safely allow its notifications. What will appear on your desktop wholly depends on what the site usually posts. For example, a news website would show important news alerts. A travel blog would post notifications related to new destinations, discounts, and similar content.

We strongly recommend you remove from the list of sites that have permission if you have granted it. If you’re not sure of how to do that, use the directions provided at the very end of the report. We also suggest scanning the computer with anti-virus software to determine whether adware is causing the redirects.

Redirects to random sites is often a sign of adware

Take note of how often you get redirected and when it happens. If it only happened once when browsing a questionable website, it’s more than likely the site that caused it. Sites that have pornography or pirated content often have questionable ads, and clicking on anything on them can cause redirects. Installing an adblocker program can usually stop the redirects.

However, if the redirects are happening constantly, you may have an adware problem. While not a serious infection, it’s pretty annoying to deal with. It installs via free software bundling and comes attached to a free program as an extra offer. This method of installation is referred to as software bundling, and the extra offers are permitted to install alongside the program automatically. The offers are optional but they need to be deselected manually if users do not want them installed.

When installing free programs, you always need to choose Advanced (Custom) settings instead of Default. Advanced will make all extra offers visible and give you the option to deselect all of them. All you need to do is uncheck the boxes. Once you have done that, you can continue installing the freeware. Some of the offers may seem useful at first but allowing any of them to install is not a good idea because they’ll only take up space on your computer. removal

If you have provided with permission to show you notifications, you need to revoke it. Use the below-provided directions to help you if you don’t know how to do that.

We also recommend scanning the computer with anti-virus software like WiperSoft to check for adware. If adware is the issue, removing it would stop the redirects. And if it’s not adware, then reviewing your browsing habits may be a good idea, as is installing an adblocker program.
