Fastbestcaptcha.top DescriptionType: Adware
Fastbestcaptcha.top is a deceptive page that relies on manipulative and clickbait tactics to deliver questionable content to its visitors. This particular browser-based tactic has been enjoying quite a lot of popularity among unscrupulous people and as a result, the Internet has been flooded by such dubious sites.
The pages proliferating the scheme operate in a virtually identical manner. They show fake messages to the users in an attempt to lure them into subscribing to the page's push notification services. Users may see messages claiming to be part of a CAPTCHA check, promising that additional content will be available or that a file is now ready for download. The exact text shown by the scam page could be a variation of:
'Press Allow to verify that you are not a robot'
'Click Allow to watch the video'
'Download is ready.'
'Click Allow to download your file'
After receiving the needed browser permissions, Fastbestcaptcha.top will begin delivering intrusive and annoying advertisements to the affected device. Users risk being taken to more unsafe places such as phishing pages, online tactics, fake giveaways, sites spreading PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) and more. In fact, Fastbestcaptcha.top has been observed to redirect to exactly such hoax sites that under the guise of a fake Google Chrome giveaway seek to obtain sensitive information from the users.
Users should take the necessary measures to stop Fastbestcaptcha.top from interfering with their browsing as soon as possible. Typically, it is enough to revoke the browser permissions that were granted to the con page unknowingly. Depending on your particular browser type, you may need to look for the 'Permissions' or 'Notifications' settings.
