Despite its name, doesn't actually contain any posts, fresh or not. In fact, it is an empty site dedicated to the propagation of a browser-based tactic that attempts to trick the user into subscribing to the website's push notifications. If successful, will be able to start displaying various third-party advertisements on the screen of the affected device.

While most websites part of this tactic pose as fake captcha tests, instead relies on the unsuspecting users' curiosity. All visitors who land on the website are shown a buffer bar with the following message below it:'Click the Allow button to subscribe to push notifications and continue watching.'

Clicking 'Allow' will be enough to grant all the browser permissions it needs. Numerous sponsored advertisements for online games and casinos, adult websites, and suspicious software updates will start taking space on the device's screen. Closing the browser will not be enough to prevent the advertisements from appearing.

Instead, all those who have fallen for the tricks of Allfreshposts need to open the 'Settings' menu of their respective browser, scroll to the permissions tab, and remove everything that has been associated with this misleading website.
