Remove pop-ups

Remove pop-ups is a very typical adware website that pushes a social engineering scam that tries to trick users into subscribing to advertisements. It misuses a legitimate browser feature that allows websites to send users notifications.


If you get redirected to this website, do not allow to send you notifications. As soon as you enter the site, a browser notification will pop up and say “ wants to show notifications”. If you’re not familiar with these notifications, the request may seem harmless enough but if you press “Allow”, you will essentially be agreeing to see advertisements, even on your desktop.

As we said above, this request to show notifications is a legitimate browser feature. Unfortunately, it’s often misused by spam websites like The way this feature works is if you allow a website to show you notifications, it will display alerts about things the site thinks you may be interested in. These alerts would appear even on your desktop so visiting the site is not necessary. For example, if you allow a legitimate travel-related website to show you notifications, it would use them to keep you informed about discounts, new travel destinations, etc., without you needing to visit the site. It can be pretty convenient if you are interested in what a certain site is about. However, when it’s spam sites like that ask to show notifications, they’re essentially asking whether you want to be spammed with ads.

The thing about these ads is that they are shown to you by a highly questionable website, meaning they will not be safe to interact with. You may be shown potentially malicious ads that are made to appear like system notifications. For example, an ad may resemble an update notification but would actually download something malicious if interacted with. So if you have given the site permission to show you ads, avoid interacting with notifications until you revoke that permission.

If you have pressed “Allow” on a site like, you need to revoke the permission. It’s, fortunately, not difficult to do, and you can use the instructions in the last section to help you. In addition to that, you also need to determine whether the redirects to this site are caused by adware or not. If it is adware, you will need to uninstall it to delete redirects for good.

Adware is often behind redirects to sites like

Whether or not you’re redirected to by adware or not matters because if it is adware, you will keep getting redirected constantly until you get rid of the infection. Adware isn’t a particularly serious infection, and it can install quite sneakily, which is why users are often surprised by its presence. It can come attached to free software, especially the one you download from non-official websites, as an extra offer that’s allowed to install alongside without needing explicit permission. If you want to prevent these unwanted installations, you need to pay attention when installing free programs. Use Advanced (Custom) settings when installing programs and uncheck all boxes when shown what’s been added. Only after you have deselected all offers should you continue installing the program.

If you were randomly redirected when browsing high-risk websites, it’s likely the site that’s a fault. When browsing high-risk websites, it’s recommended to have an adblocker and anti-virus software installed. removal

If adware is installed on your computer, deleting it is the way you remove redirects permanently. It would be easiest to do using anti-virus software like WiperSoft, as the program would take care of everything for you. Regardless of whether you have adware or not, if you permitted the site to show you notifications, you need to revoke that permission. The next paragraph will explain how you can do that.
