Remove ads

Remove ads is a very generic scam website that misuses a legitimate browser feature to spam users’ desktops with ads. It’s essentially identical to hundreds of other sites that aim to expose users to as much advertisement content as possible. The site will show an alert saying “ wants to show notifications”, and pressing “Allow” would allow the site to show ads on your desktop. Interacting with those ads is not recommended because you could be exposed to potentially dangerous content. claims to be a video game news website but does not show any content besides a message saying you need to allow notifications to continue on to the site. A browser alert will pop up as soon as you enter the site and it will ask you to allow to show notifications. This is a legitimate feature but allowing sites like to show notifications can be dangerous, as well as annoying. If you press “Allow”, you will start setting advertisements on your desktop. The ads will appear on your desktop’s right side, at a similar place to where legitimate system notifications usually appear. Because they can expose you to dangerous content such as scams and malware, avoid clicking on any of those notifications. You should also remove from the list of sites that have permission as soon as possible. Directions will be provided at the very end of the report.

Since the feature is legitimate, allowing safe sites to show notifications should not cause issues. The contents of those notifications depend on what the site usually posts. For example, a news website would show important news alerts. When you no longer wish to see them, you can easily stop the notifications in your browser’s settings.

We strongly recommend scanning your computer with anti-virus software like WiperSoft in order to determine whether adware is what’s causing the redirects. If it’s not adware, then you may need to change your browsing habits and avoid visiting high-risk websites.

Why are you suddenly redirected to

In most cases, redirects to sites like are triggered randomly when browsing certain high-risk websites, such as ones that have pornography or pirated content. Browsing them without an adblocker program is not a good idea because you will be redirected all the time, potentially to more dangerous websites than

If the redirects are happening all the time even when browsing safe sites, your computer may be infected with adware. It’s not a serious infection that can do direct damage to the computer so there is no need to worry. However, adware is very annoying to deal with, particularly when it triggers redirects that interrupt regular browsing. It usually installs via free software bundling, meaning many users install it accidentally. It’s a pretty sneaky installation method that does not require users’ explicit permission, which is why it’s a rather frowned upon installation method. Programs that use it are often detected as potential threats by anti-virus software. The way software bundling works is infections like adware and browser hijackers come attached to free software as extra offers that are permitted to install alongside automatically. The offers are technically optional but they need to be deselected to prevent their installation. But because these offers are hidden, many users simply do not notice them, thus allowing their installation.

To correctly install freeware and prevent unwanted additional installations, you need to opt for Advanced (Custom) settings during the process. Unlike Default, Advanced settings will make all added offers visible. You will also be able to deselect everything. Simply uncheck the boxes and then continue the installation. Keep in mind that most free programs will come with added offers so unless you want to fill your computer with junk, always pay attention when installing programs. removal

Considering that the site is spamming your desktop with advertisements, you likely want to remove from the list of sites with permission. It’s not difficult to do as long as you know your way around your browser’s settings. If you need help, directions are provided right below.

  • For Google Chrome: Open menu (the three dots top-right corner) -> Settings -> Privacy and security -> Site Settings. Click on Notifications under Permissions, and remove and any other questionable website. You can stop these notification requests permanently by toggling off “Sites can ask to send notifications”.

Because random redirects can be triggered by adware, we strongly recommend scanning the computer with anti-virus software such as WiperSoft. Adware can be tricky to remove manually, and it’s much easier to use anti-virus. Once the adware is no longer present, the redirects should stop. If no adware is detected, the issue may be the sites you visit. In the future, make sure you have an adblocker program enabled when browsing high-risk websites.
