Imsemy.com DescriptionType: Adware
Users who find themselves encountering the Imsemy.com page should exercise caution. The page exists to run a popular browser-based tactic solely. Under various false pretenses, the site will try to convince unsuspecting users into clicking the displayed 'Allow' button without revealing that doing so will subscribe them to its push notification service. This is the desired outcome by Imsemy.com's operators because the page will afterward be able to abuse its browser permissions and deliver intrusive advertisements via the affected browser.
To say that there are countless pages on the Internet performing the same scam would be an understatement. In fact, more and more are being created every single day. Most of them try to create the impressions that they are doing a CAPTCHA check for bots. Other widely used scam scenarios include pretending that a file will become available for download or by clicking 'Allow' users will receive access to a video clip. Imsemy.com has been observed using a variation of this. The site displays the following message:
'Can't play video! Browser may block video autoplay..Click 'Allow' to play the video'
It is crucial to avoid following the instructions or risk your device being flooded by shady advertisements. The advertisements could impact the browsing experience or upon reaching excessive quantities could cause the whole system to experience slowdowns or the browser itself to crash. In addition, interacting with the advertisements should be regarded as extremely risky. Users could trigger forced redirects to additional scam websites, domains promoting various PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs), phishing pages trying to collect any entered information, fake giveaways and other equally untrustworthy places.
