Movies123 Ads Description
People who do not like paying for legal streaming services often end up either looking to download the media they are after illicitly or searching for Web pages that offer to stream pirated content for free. However, as it is said, there is no free lunch. Websites that host pirated media tend to work with a whole network of other dodgy actors. Mainly dubious advertisers who will try to sell you all sorts of shady products and subscriptions.
A common trick used by dodgy websites like the Movies123 page is to try and trick the user into giving them permission to display browser notifications. Many legitimate websites ask for permission to send browser notifications, but their goal is to provide users with breaking news, latest gossip, or newest sales. These notifications are usually desired by the user and therefore, are not considered dodgy. However, the Movies123 website will not provide you with interesting content or useful information; instead, it will make sure to bombard you with unwanted advertisements. These pop-up advertisements will be appearing on your screen even if you have exited the Movies123 site and are browsing other pages, which makes them irritating particularly.
The Movies123 project is a whole network of Web pages that host very similar content to one another. Some of the sites that are a part of the network are:
The Movies123 ads tend to promote dodgy gambling platforms, bogus hookup pages, pornographic websites, etc. The advertisements on the Movies123 are also known for attempting to trick the user into installing dubious ‘security’ applications by presenting the individual with a fake report stating that their computer’s health is in a dire condition and they need to act immediately. Another one of the Movies123’s tricks is to state that the users need to install additional software if they would like to view the content hosted on the site.
We would recommend you to steer clear of any websites that host pirated content certainly. The risk for your and your system’s safety is just not worth it. There are legal means of viewing your favorite content, which will not put you in any danger, and these options are definitely worth exploring.
