What is Install.notify-service.com
Install.notify-service.com is a questionable website that users get redirected to by adware. It’s a site that will ask you to allow notifications, and by pressing Allow, you’re essentially agreeing to seeing ads, even when on different websites. A lot of sites ask to show you notifications, even completely legitimate ones. Agreeing to this request is not a good idea, even when legitimate sites are the ones asking. These notifications are usually ads or other useless content that will clutter your screen. You should most definitely not allow questionable sites to show you notifications. You will be bombarded with ads, some of which could expose you to unsafe content. Fortunately, if you pressed Allow, you can easily revoke this permission. We will show you how to do that in the last section of the report.
The only reason you would end up on a site like Install.notify-service.com is because you were redirected. You were either redirected by the site you were visiting or you have adware installed. If it’s the former, as long as you are careful about what site you visit and have adblocker installed, you will be fine. However, if you have adware installed, you will need to get rid of it to remove Install.notify-service.com redirects. It’s not difficult to do if you use anti-spyware software. We should mention that until you get rid of the adware, you should avoid clicking on any ads, just to be safe.
Why are you redirected to Install.notify-service.com
Like we said above, if you ended up on Install.notify-service.com, you were either redirected by the site you were visiting or your computer is infected with adware.
If you were on a free streaming, pornography or some other questionable website, you could have easily been redirected by the site. Clicking on anything on those sites usually triggers some kind of pop-up or redirect, but as long as you have adblocker, they should be blocked. When you’re about to enter such sites in the future, make sure you have adblocker enabled.
It’s also possible that your computer is infected with adware. If that is the case, you will need to get rid of it first to delete Install.notify-service.com redirects. The adware probably installed together with some freeware. Free programs often come with adware, browser hijackers and potentially unwanted programs attached, and if you do not manually prevent them from installing, they will install alongside without even requiring your permission. However, you can easily prevent this from happening.
When installing freeware, opt for Advanced (Custom) settings instead of Default. Advanced will make all offers visible and you will be able to deselect all of them. All you need to do is uncheck the boxes of those offers. Do this with every free program you install because a lot of junk programs come attached to free software.
Is Install.notify-service.com a dangerous site?
As soon as you get redirected to Install.notify-service.com, you will get an alert asking you to allow the site to send you notifications. In the background, the site will display a text saying that to continue you need to press “Allow”. Since you got redirected to the site, you don’t need to continue, so do not press “Allow”. This can affect all popular browsers you have installed, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer.
If you agree to these notifications, you’re basically agreeing to ads when you’re not on the site. Those ads will appear as notifications and will be very annoying. They could also be unsafe, and lead you to dangerous content and scams. Thus, do not interact with ads until you get rid of the adware and revoke the permissions.
If you have adware, you will need to get rid of it to remove Install.notify-service.com redirects. Use anti-spyware software for that. You will also need to revoke permission for the site to show you notifications.
For Mozilla Firefox. Open menu by pressing on the three bars top-right corner, select Privacy & Security, scroll down to Permissions, press on Settings next to Notifications, and remove the unwanted sites. You can actually turn off these notification requests so they don’t appear at all. You can do that by checking the “Block new requests asking to allow notifications” box in the same Notification settings.
For Google Chrome. Open menu by pressing the three dots top-right corner, press on Privacy and security, press on Site Settings, click on Notifications under Permissions, and remove the sites. You can stop these notification requests permanently by toggling off “Sites can ask to send notifications”.
