Hexaput0n.click is a website whose primary mission is to run various online tactics. Users encountering the page should exercise caution, as they may be presented with various misleading or clickbait messages. This distinct tactic exploiting the legitimate push notifications browser feature has been particularly popular. The dubious page may try to hide the fact that it wants users to enable its notifications by pretending that the displayed 'Allow' button has some completely unrelated functionality.

Most hoax websites of this type, for example, pretend to be doing a CAPTCHA check. On the other hand, Hexaput0n.click has been confirmed to imply that users will be able to see a supposed video only after clicking 'Allow'. Another popular scenario claims that pressing the button will allow users to start downloading files.

If users follow the instructions, they would be providing important browser permissions to the con page. Hexaput0n.click will then be able to start generating profits for its operators via an intrusive ad campaign. Indeed, the site will begin to deliver numerous questionable advertisements to users. The advertisements are highly likely to be promoting additional hoax websites, fake giveaways, platforms spreading intrusive PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs), shady adult-oriented pages and more.
