Cousonelly.com appears to be mostly concerned with how to trick users into unknowingly subscribing to its push notifications. This behavior is common among rogue websites using false, manipulative, and clickbait messages as a way to get users into clicking the displayed 'Allow' button, without revealing its true functionality. In short, this is an extremely popular browser-based tactic.
The exact scenario that users encounter on Cousonelly.com is not set in stone. Many dubious websites of this type are capable of adjusting the messages they show, based on the user's specific IP address/geolocation. Still, in most cases, users will see a fake CAPTCHA check with the implication that they must pass it to access the content of the page. The shown message could be similar to:
'Click 'Allow' to verify that you are not a robot!'
Unfortunately, there is rarely any meaningful content on these pages and, instead, users who pressed the button would have granted the particular site important browser privileges. In practice, Cousonelly.com will now be able to deliver numerous, unwanted and intrusive advertisements and notifications to the user's device.
The generated advertisements are highly likely to promote untrustworthy and even potentially unsafe destinations and software programs. They may lead users to technical support and phishing tactics, fake giveaways, platforms spread PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs), shady online betting platforms and more.
