Highpotencysoftware.com is a deceptive website that tries to convince its visitors to install a promoted browser extension. The chances that users intentionally landed on the page are extremely slim. Instead, the likely culprit that brought them to Highpotencysoftware.com is either a previously visited website that uses rogue advertising networks or redirects caused by a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) lurking inside the computer or device. PUPs are dubious applications spread via questionable distribution techniques, such as software bundles or fake installers. Such applications are often equipped with adware, browser hijacker and data-collection functions.
The browser extensions promoted by Highpotencysoftware.com also are likely to have such capabilities. First, the deceptive page will pretend as if users must install a browser extension to access its content. The fake claims will continue with messages such as:
'TO CONTINUE - ADD EXTENSION TO CHROME'
'Click Continue then Add extension to complete'
The extensions promoted via such dubious means could be tasked with generating copious amounts of unwanted advertisements, taking over the browser's settings to cause redirects to a sponsored destination or collecting various data from the system. That is why it is strongly recommended to never follow the instructions found on random websites across the Internet.
