Freeadvworld.com Description

Type: Adware

Freeadvworld.com is not concerned with providing any meaningful service to its visitors. At the same time, users are highly unlikely to visit the page intentionally, and would instead be taken there through unwanted redirects caused by rogue advertising networks or PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) lurking on their devices.

The reason Freeadvworld.com exists is to perform a popular tactic that exploits the legitimate push notification browser feature. Hoax pages of this type aim to convince users into clicking the shown 'Allow' button to enable their push notifications unknowingly. To achieve their goal, these manipulative websites utilize various social engineering and clickbait tactics.

For example, cybersecurity researchers have observed Freeadvworld.com pretend to perform a CAPTCHA check. It will show visitors an image of a confused robot. A message will be displayed right next to it:

'Click Allow if you are not a robot'

If it is successful, Freeadvworld.com will receive the needed browser permissions to start delivering unwanted advertisements to the tricked users. Advertisements associated with such untrustworthy sources are typically equally shady. They could be promoting more schemes, phishing portals, fake giveaways, or even intrusive PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) under the guise of seemingly legitimate applications. In addition, users also could experience unwanted redirects triggered when they press the 'Allow' button. One confirmed destination is 'messagereceiver.com' - a page with virtually identical behavior to Freeadvworld.com.
