Orthepositio.biz ad removal
Orthepositio.biz is one of many scam websites that ask users to allow notifications. Whenever you get redirected to it, it will show a browser alert saying “Orthepositio.biz wants to show notifications”. Allowing the site to show you notifications means your desktop will be spammed with ads, some of which could be dangerous to interact with.
Orthepositio.biz is made to appear like it’s a sports news website, though it’s merely a ruse to trick users into agreeing to see ads on the desktop. As soon as you enter the site, your browser will show an alert saying “Orthepositio.biz wants to show notifications, but instead of actually useful notifications, the site will spam you with ads. We suggest you avoid interacting with those notifications if you have allowed them because they may lead you to dangerous sites. Certain notifications may try to trick you into downloading malicious software or falling for a scam. Fortunately, you can easily revoke the site’s permission if you have given it. Directions will be provided at the very end of the report.
But while many sites misuse the feature, it does have legitimate uses. As long as the site you give permission to is legitimate, allowing notifications is safe. What kind of notifications a site will show depends on what it usually posts. For example, a news website will show notifications with important news stories. A traveling blog would show notifications about new travel destinations or discounts.
To find out why you’re being redirected, we suggest you scan your computer with WiperSoft or another anti-virus program. If adware is detected, removing it would stop the redirects. However, if it’s not adware, you should install an adblocker program for when you visit high-risk sites.
Adware installation methods
Redirects to random sites can be a sign of an adware infection. While not serious, adware infections can be very annoying to deal with. In order to avoid installing infections like adware, it’s important to install free programs correctly. Adware and browser hijackers come attached to free software as extra offers, which allows them to install alongside automatically. The extra offers are optional but because they’re initially hidden, many users end up accidentally installing them without even noticing. To correctly install freeware, always choose Advanced (Custom) settings instead of Default. Advanced will make all added offers visible, and you will be given the option to deselect everything. Uncheck all the boxes, even if some of the offers seem useful at first. Programs that use this sneaky method to install should not be allowed to remain on your computer.
If it’s not adware, the sites you visit may be triggering redirects. High-risk sites, such as ones that have pornography or pirated content, often host questionable ads, interacting with which could lead to potentially dangerous sites like Orthepositio.biz. It’s also a good idea to install an adblocker program to prevent intrusive ads and redirects.
To stop ads from appearing on your desktop, you need to revoke the site’s permission to show you notifications. You can do that pretty easily, but we will provide instructions below in case you need help. Once you delete Orthepositio.biz from the list of sites with permission, you will no longer see the ads.
- 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 Orthepositio.biz. 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 Orthepositio.biz. You can stop these notification requests permanently by toggling off “Sites can ask to send notifications”.

We recommend you scan your computer with anti-virus software such as WiperSoft in order to determine whether adware is installed. Removing the adware would stop the redirects. And if it’s not adware, you should avoid visiting high-risk websites and/or install an adblocker program.
