Protectionyoupc.com Description

Type: Adware

Protectionyoupc.com is a deceptive website that has been observed running a tactic offering a McAfee anti-virus subscription with a 50% discount. There is nothing inherently wrong with offering discounted subscriptions. However, these con websites mostly rely on misleading scare tactics to lure unsuspecting users into buying the promoted product.

At the same time, Protectionyoupc.com also may attempt to trick users into subscribing to its push notification services. This is another underhanded and intrusive method through which dubious websites generate monetary gains for their operators.

Users may be shown various clickbait messages instructing them to click the shown 'Allow' button. Some examples of these fake messages include:

'Click Allow to confirm that you are not a robot'


'Click Allow to watch the video'


'Click Allow to download your file
'

If successful, the site will proceed to deliver numerous unwanted and equally untrustworthy advertisements to the affected users. The advertisements could lead to shady pages spreading browser hijackers, adware or other PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs). Users also may land on phishing pages or other online schemes.
