Remove Towersy1.xyz ads
Towersy1.xyz is a website that displays various scam messages in order to trick users into agreeing to see notifications (aka ads) on their desktop. The site will ask you to click “Allow” in a browser alert that says “Towersy1.xyz wants to show notifications”, and if you do that, you’ll be spammed with ads on your desktop, some of which could be dangerous to interact with.
When you get redirected to Towersy1.xyz, you may see the start of a Marvel movie playing and then suddenly stopping, with a message saying that you need to allow notifications to continue playing the video. The contents of the site may differ, however, as we’ve seen the same site displaying a download button instead of a video. A browser alert will appear saying that “Towersy1.xyz wants to show notifications”, and clicking “Allow” would allow the site to spam you with ads. The “show notifications” feature is legitimate but you should never allow questionable sites to show notifications. Instead of actually useful notifications, scam sites would show you ads. And keep in mind that not all ads will be safe, as some may try to get you to install potentially malicious programs or fall for scams.
But as we said already, the “show notifications” feature is legitimate, and allowing a safe site to show notifications is perfectly okay. For example, if you visit a particular news website frequently, you could allow it to show you notifications, and they would display important news stories on your desktop. The contents in the notifications really depend on what the site usually posts. When you don’t want to see the notifications anymore, you can easily revoke the permission.
To find out whether the redirects are caused by adware, we suggest you scan your computer with anti-virus software, such as WiperSoft.
Adware may be behind redirects to sites like Towersy1.xyz
There are usually two reasons for redirects to sites like Towersy1.xyz, either your computer has adware installed or you browse questionable websites that trigger redirects. In many cases, sites that have pornography or pirated content have questionable ads and can trigger redirects. If you browse these high-risk websites, you need to have an adblocker program installed as it would close the redirect windows as they appear.
If you are redirected when browsing safe sites and it happens out of the blue, you may have adware installed. Adware is not particularly serious, though it is very annoying. Adware infections usually install via software bundling, which allows them to essentially sneak into computers unnoticed. The reason this method is called software bundling is that software can come with added offers that are permitted to install alongside automatically without requiring additional permission. Those offers are usually adware, browser hijackers, and potentially unwanted programs (PUPs). The way they are attached allows them to install alongside the freeware automatically, even if they’re optional offers. If you want to correctly install freeware and avoid unwanted installations you need to pay attention to the installation process. Most importantly, you need to opt for Advanced (Custom) settings instead of Default. Those settings will make all offers visible and allow you to deselect everything. All you need to do is uncheck the boxes of those offers, after which you can continue the installation.

To determine what is causing the redirects we recommend scanning your computer with anti-virus software like WiperSoft.

If you’re redirected when visiting questionable websites, your browsing habits may be the issue. You should install an adblocker program, as it would prevent unwanted pop-ups and redirects.
