Contentgate.xyz Description

Yet another deceptive website has emerged on the Internet. Operating under the Contentgate.xyz address, this hoax website is virtually identical to all the rest of its type. They all try to display questionable content to their visitors, while also attempting to trick them into subscribing to that specific site's push notification services.

The exact behavior of Contentgate.xyz is based on the user's geolocation. The site determines this factor by accessing and analyzing visitors' IP addresses. Depending on the result, the site can either proceed to display the dubious content on its own page or redirect the user to other similarly untrustworthy sites. As we said, Contentgate.xyz also might try to lure its visitors into clicking the 'Allow' button, through various deceptive scenarios. One example involves the site displaying a video window accompanied by a variation of the following message:

'Press Allow to watch the video'

All those who fall for the trap will find themselves subjected to an intrusive advertising campaign. Apart from being an incredible annoyance and diminishing the browsing experience on the device severely, the delivered advertisements also could take users to unsafe places such as phishing pages siphoning all entered information, deceiving sites running fake giveaways or 'get-rich-quick' schemes, domains spreading barely-functional PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) and more.
