Ads4pc.com is a questionable page that tries to manipulate users into enabling its push notifications. The behavior of the site is not unique; in fact, it is practically identical to the countless other dubious pages propagating this same browser-based tactic. Typically, users do not open these hoax pages willingly and are taken there via forced redirects. The two most common causes for the redirects are previously visited websites using rogue advertising networks or having an intrusive PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) installed on the computer or device.
Users should keep in mind that these rogue websites are likely to display various misleading or clickbait messages in an attempt to hide their true intentions. For example, Ads4pc.com has been observed to pretend that users must pass a CAPTCHA check to supposedly access the page's content. The site will display an image of a robot alongside a message similar to:
'Click 'Allow' if you are not a robot'
Following the instructions will subscribe the user to the site's push notifications, granting the dubious page important browser permissions in the process. Afterward, Ads4pc.com will be able to generate unwanted and annoying advertisements on the system. Users are likely to be presented with advertisements promoting suspicious and questionable pages, software products, adult-oriented or age-restricted sites, gaming/betting platforms and more.
In addition, pressing the 'Allow' button may result in redirects to additional unsafe destinations. Ads4pc.com has been confirmed to lead users to another, virtually indistinguishable hoax page at gomusic.info. Users also should keep in mind that the exact scenarios utilized by these untrustworthy pages may vary.
