Seumsiden.online ads removal
Seumsiden.online is a generic scam website that aims to expose you to advertisement content by misusing a legitimate browser feature. It’s identical to the tiniest detail to hundreds of other sites that try to do the same thing. When you enter the site, it will show an alert saying “Seumsiden.online wants to show notifications”. If you press “Allow”, you would allow the site to show ads on your desktop. Interacting with those ads is not a good idea because they could be malicious.
Seumsiden.online is supposed to be a video game news website but it does not show any kind of content. It merely displays an image and a message saying you need to allow notifications. A browser alert will appear when you enter the site and ask you to allow Seumsiden.online to show notifications. Keep in mind that this is a legitimate feature but only for legitimate sites. If you press “Allow” and allow Seumsiden.online to show notifications, you will start setting intrusive advertisements on your desktop. The ads will appear on your desktop’s right side, where legitimate system notifications are usually shown. Do not interact with those notifications because they can expose you to scams, malware, and other dangerous content. For example, they may try to trick you into downloading something that would later turn out to be malicious. If you have allowed it to show notifications, you need to remove Seumsiden.online from the list of sites with permission. Follow the directions at the end of the report if you do not know how to do it yourself.
It should be said that you can allow legitimate sites to show permission. It can even be useful if there is a particular website that you visit often, as its contents would appear on your desktop without you needing to visit the site. The contents of those notifications depend on what the site usually posts. As an example, if you allow a news website to show notifications, alerts would contain important news information. You can easily stop these notifications when you no longer wish to see them.
To determine what’s causing the random redirects, we recommend scanning the computer with anti-virus software, such as WiperSoft. Adware may the issue, and it can be tricky to get rid of manually. If no adware is detected, installing an adblocker program would be the best course of action to prevent the redirects when browsing high-risk websites.
Redirects to sites like Seumsiden.online can be a sign of adware
In many cases, random redirects are triggered when browsing particular high-risk websites, such as ones that have pornography or pirated content. When browsing such sites it’s important to have an adblocker program installed because otherwise, you will be constantly redirected and shown intrusive advertisements.
If you’re redirected constantly even when browsing safe sites, an infection like adware may be installed on your device. It’s not particularly serious and will not directly damage the computer. However, you will want to get rid of it sooner rather than later because of its annoying ads and redirects. It installs via free software bundling, a sneaky installation method that does not require users’ explicit permission. Hence, programs that use it are often detected as potential threats by anti-virus software. Software bundling is essentially adding additional offers to programs in a way that allows them to install alongside automatically without requiring extra permission from users. Those offers are often infections like adware and browser hijackers. Whatever comes added to a free program is technically optional but it needs to be manually deselected as it would install alongside otherwise. Because the offers are often hidden, many users simply do not notice them, thus allowing their installations.
If you want to correctly install freeware, you need to opt for Advanced (Custom) settings during the installation process. Advanced settings will make all added offers visible and allow you to deselect them if you want. It’s enough to just uncheck the boxes. We recommend that you always pay attention when installing free programs because otherwise, your computer will be filled with junk programs that are difficult to get rid of.
The sooner you remove Seumsiden.online from the list of sites that have permission to show notifications, the better. It’s not difficult as long as you know what do to. Directions are provided right below in case you need help. It’s also a good idea to review all sites that have permission and remove the unnecessary ones.
- 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 Seumsiden.online and any other questionable website. 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 Seumsiden.online and any other questionable website. You can stop these notification requests permanently by toggling off “Sites can ask to send notifications”.
- For Microsoft Edge: Open menu (the three dots top-right corner) -> Settings -> Cookies and site permissions -> Notifications. Review which sites have permission and remove Seumsiden.online and any other questionable website. You can permanently turn off these notification requests by toggling off “Ask before sending”.
Since adware can trigger these random redirects, it’s a good idea to scan the computer with anti-virus software such as WiperSoft. Adware can be pretty persistent and difficult to remove, and it’s much easier to use anti-virus. The redirects should no longer happen once the adware is no longer present. If no adware is infecting your computer, the issue may be with the sites you visit. Install an adblocker program to block the redirects and other intrusive ads when browsing high-risk websites.
