The website is not a page that users are likely to visit intentionally. After all, the site appears to lack any meaningful or useful content that it can offer to visitors.

Users who encounter the page should check if they have visited any websites using rogue advertising networks or if there is a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) lurking on their computers.

Like most dubious websites, also may be capable of modifying its behavior according to the visitor's IP address and geolocation, resulting in users seeing different tactics. One possible scenario involves the dubious page displaying a video that is supposedly being restricted. will then claim that users must click the shown 'Allow' button to watch the video. The lure messages found on the page may be similar to:

'Your Video Is Ready
Press Play to start the video

'To access the video, press 'Allow'

The goal of the page is to trick visitors into subscribing to its push notifications without realizing it. If successful, the site will be able to deliver arbitrary and intrusive advertisements to the user's device.

The issue with the advertisements generated by such unfamiliar and unproven sources is that they are rarely promoting legitimate destinations, services or software products. Instead, in the vast majority of cases, users will see advertisements for shady betting/gaming platforms, fake giveaways, phishing portals designed to appear as actual websites, intrusive PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs), adware, browser hijackers and more.
