Advnottech.com is unlikely to be a site that users open intentionally. After all, the page appears to be mostly concerned with propagating a popular browser-based scam that takes advantage of the legitimate push notification feature. Instead, users will often find themselves encountering Advnottech.com, or any of the countless other scam pages virtually identical to it, as a result of forced redirects caused by rogue advertising networks or intrusive PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs).
When dealing with this type of scam websites, it is important to remember that they can often change the utilized fake scenario based on users' IP addresses and geolocation. For example, infosec researchers have observed Advnottech.com pretend to host adult-oriented or age-restricted content. To gain access, users are asked to press the displayed 'Allow' button. However, it is possible that others will see different messages such as ones implying that they must pass a CAPTCHA check. No matter what the exact text of these deceptive and click-bait messages is, they will almost certainly contain instructions about clicking 'Allow.'
Users that press the button will be subscribed to the page's push notification. As a result, they will become recipients of numerous dubious and unwanted advertisements. The generated ads are unlikely to be for legitimate destinations or products. Instead, users could be taken to untrustworthy adult sites, online betting platforms, fake giveaways, etc. Interacting with the ads could also cause forced redirects leading to more similarly suspicious pages.
