Kexvideo.ru exists solely to run a variation of a rather popular browser-based tactic. The scheme involves showing misleading and clickbait messages to users in an attempt to lure them into clicking the shown 'Allow' button and subscribing to the page's push notification services unknowingly.
Most websites propagating this hoax create the false impression that clicking the button is part of a CAPTCHA check. Others may promise that users will win a gift/reward card or a file will now be available for download. However, Kexvideo.ru has been observed to use another popular trick mostly. The site shows a loading symbol, implying that a video is having issues being played. A text message stating that users need to 'Press the Allow button to continue.' further reinforces that notion.
Following the instructions will grant the page the browser permissions it needs to start delivering annoying and unwanted advertisements to the user, as part of an intrusive ad campaign. The content and advertisements associated with Kexvideo.ru should not be trusted. Users who engage with the advertisements risk being redirected to shady or even unsafe websites or trigger downloads for suspicious software products that could turn out to be adware, browser hijackers or other PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs).
