How to stop redirects

How to stop redirects is a dubious website that users may get randomly redirected to. The site tries to trick users into allowing ads on their desktops by misusing a legitimate browser feature. If you get redirected to the site, you will get a prompt saying “ wants to show notifications”. Clicking “Allow” means authorizing the site to show ads.



When you first get redirected to, you will see a video player start loading and suddenly stop. A browser pop-up will appear saying “ wants to show notifications”. The site will also display a message saying you need to click “Allow” to watch the video. If users get redirected to this site while trying to stream copyrighted content illegally, this trick may work. When users give permission, the site starts spamming ads. These ads will appear on the right side of the screen, similarly to where system notifications pop up. Clicking on those ads is not a good idea because you could be redirected to highly questionable websites that conceal malware or promote various scams. Fortunately, if you have given permission to show notifications, you can easily revoke this permission via your browser’s settings.

The feature does have legitimate uses. As long as a site is safe, it can be given permission to show notifications. For example, if you frequently visit a particular website and want to see its content without having to visit the site, allowing it to show notifications can be useful. If you get tired of the notifications, you can easily revoke the permission.

What triggers redirects?

If you get randomly redirected to a site like, it’s usually because you browse high-risk websites without an adblocker. Certain websites expose users to highly questionable ads. For example, sites that have pornographic and/or pirated content are known to trigger ads/redirects when users click on anything. A good anti-virus program should be able to prevent these unwanted redirects.

Another trigger for random redirects may be adware. It’s a minor but very annoying infection because its main purpose is to expose users to as much advertisement content as possible. It’s usually installed via the software bundling method. The way it works is infections like adware are attached to free programs as extra offers. These extra offers are technically optional but they are preselected to install alongside automatically. Users can prevent them from installing but the offers are hidden in settings users don’t usually use. This makes software bundling a frowned-upon method, and programs that use it are often detected as potential threats by anti-virus programs.

As long as you pay attention when installing programs, you can easily prevent these unwanted installations. When installing a program, choose Advanced (Custom) settings instead of Default when given the option. The installation window will recommend using Default settings but if you do that, all added offers will be authorized to install. Advanced settings, on the other hand, will make all offers visible. You would also be given the option to deselect the offers you do not want. Unless you want to fill your computer with junk programs like adware and browser hijackers, always deselect all offers. Legitimate programs do not use this installation method

Because adware could be triggering the redirects to, we recommend scanning your computer with an anti-virus program like WiperSoft. If adware is detected, removing it will stop the redirects. Adware can be difficult to deal with manually, so using an anti-virus program is much easier. If adware is not the issue, installing an adblocker program will stop the redirects.
