Spleasedon.fun redirect removal
Spleasedon.fun is one of many scam websites that try to trick users into subscribing to ads that would appear on the desktop. The site misuses a legitimate browser feature that allows websites to show users notifications, which is why you’ll get an alert that says “Spleasedon.fun wants to show notifications” when you get redirected to the site.
The “show notifications” feature is completely legitimate and is used by many websites. Normally, when a legitimate site asks for permission to show notifications, you will actually see useful ones. For example, if you want to see alerts about important news stories on your desktop, you can allow a news website to show notifications. This applies to just about any website you want to see content from. When you no longer want to see those notifications, you can revoke that permission very easily.
However, if you allow a site like Spleasedon.fun to show notifications, you are essentially agreeing to see ads on your desktop. And considering the site itself is quite questionable, you can expect that its ads will be the same, if not worse. The site claims to be sports news page so the notifications would supposedly be about sports. However, the site is a scam, so you will not be seeing legitimate notifications, and instead be spammed with ads. If you have pressed “Allow” when prompted, we highly suggest you avoid interacting with any notifications until you revoke that permission. The ads may be advertising questionable or even malicious programs, and prompting you to interact with scams.
If you are unfamiliar with how to remove Spleasedon.fun from the list of sites with permission, you can use the instructions provided at the very end of the report. You should also scan your computer with anti-virus software, such as WiperSoft, in order to determine whether you’re being redirected by adware. If it is adware, removing it would stop the redirects.
Adware installation methods
There are two possible reasons for redirects to sites like Spleasedon.fun. Your computer is either infected with adware, or you were browsing a questionable website. If it’s the sites you visit that are to blame, install adblocker or avoid visiting them. Adblocker would either prevent the pop-ups altogether or at least close the windows.
However, if you are redirected regularly, you are likely dealing with adware. Adware is a relatively minor infection that tries to expose users to as much advertisement content as possible. Adware can install via software bundling, meaning it comes attached to free software as an extra offer. These offers are technically optional but they are preselected to install alongside automatically, so users have to manually stop them from installing. But the offers are hidden, which is why many users are not able to deselect them. To make them visible, you would need to choose Advanced (Custom) settings. Those settings will also allow you to deselect everything that has been added. After you uncheck the boxes of all offers, you can continue installing the program.
Keep in mind that most free program will come with added offers, and unless you want to fill up your computer with junk, we suggest you always deselect the offers.
How to remove Spleasedon.fun redirects

If you’re not redirected by adware, then it’s likely the sites you visit. Install adblocker or avoid visiting high-risk websites, and that should prevent the redirects.
