Hdvideos.net is a deceptive website, created for the sole purpose of delivering questionable content to its visitors. The page can cause redirects to other shady pages, display dubious content on its own, or present users with misleading messages designed to lure them into clicking the 'Allow' button. Doing so will subscribe the unsuspecting visitors to the page's push notification services. Hdvideos.net will abuse its browser permissions to run an intrusive ad campaign.
There are countless other sites dedicated to the proliferation of this exact same browser-based tactic. They all rely on a couple of deceptive scenarios. The most prevalent by far is pretending to be doing a CAPTCHA check. Others include claiming that a file is ready for download, a video will become accessible, or users will gain access to the actual content of the site. No matter which scenario is chosen, they all urge users to click 'Allow.' As for the messages, they will most likely be a variation of:
'Click Allow to verify that you are not a robot'
'Click Allow to confirm'
'Click Allow to watch the video'
'Download is ready'
The advertisements generated by any of these sites, and Hdvideos.net is not an exception, should not be approached carelessly. They may employ similar clickbait tactics and then redirect users to other untrustworthy pages. Users risk landing on additional online tactics, fake giveaways, phishing pages seeking their information and other shady sites.
Users who notice frequent redirects to sites such as Hdvideos.net may have a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) or adware lurking on their devices. Run a scan with a professional anti-malware solution as soon as possible and let it remove all suspicious items.
