How to stop notifications

How to stop notifications is a highly questionable website that attempts to trick users into allowing ads on their desktops. The site misuses a legitimate browser feature that allows sites to show notifications if users give permission.



When you get redirected to, you will see several messages saying your access to the site has been blocked by some security system. To supposedly access the site, you need to permit notifications. Immediately upon entering the site, your browser will show a pop-up alert saying “ wants to show notifications”. If you click “Allow”, the site will not be unblocked. Instead, the site will start spamming ads on your desktop. Those ads will appear similarly to where legitimate system notifications often pop up, which can confuse users. Interacting with them is not a good idea because you could be exposed to potentially malicious content and scams.

While this “show notifications” feature is often misused by questionable sites like, it has legitimate uses. If there is a specific website you frequently visit, you can permit it to show you notifications as long as it’s safe. For example, if you want to see important news more conveniently, you can allow a news site to show notifications. When you no longer want to see the notifications, you can revoke them in your browser’s settings.

We recommend checking your computer with an anti-virus program like WiperSoft. The redirects are possibly triggered by an adware infection, which is easily removed with an anti-virus program. And if you have given the site permission to show notifications, you need to revoke that permission right away. Instructions will be provided at the end of this report.

What triggers redirects to sites like

Redirects to sites like can be triggered by infections like adware. But in most cases, the trigger is the questionable websites users visit. Many websites expose users to dubious ads to generate revenue. In particular, sites with pornography or pirated content trigger redirects all the time. If you install a good adblocker program, it will block these redirects and other ads.

If the redirects are triggered by an adware infection, you will be redirected more frequently. There will also be a noticeable increase in regular ads. Adware is not a serious infection, though it does get annoying very quickly. Adware and similar infections are usually installed via the software bundling method. The way it works is said infections are added to popular free programs as extra offers. These offers are authorized to be installed automatically alongside the programs they’re attached to.

These offers are technically optional but they need to be manually deselected to prevent their installations. Most users are not even aware of the offers because they are hidden in settings users don’t normally use. This makes software bundling a controversial installation method.

As long as you pay attention during installation, you will have no issues with preventing unwanted installations. During installation, you will be asked to choose settings. The installation window recommends using Default but if you do that, all added offers will be authorized to install. Using Default settings is essentially permitting infections to install. If you use Advanced (Custom) settings, all added offers will be made visible. You will also be given the option to deselect all offers. We always recommend deselecting all offers because legitimate programs do not use this installation method. Programs that do are often detected as potential threats by anti-virus programs. Unless you want to fill your computer with junk programs, always deselect all offers.
