Spdate.com Description

Type: Adware

Despite describing itself as a 'site for meetings,' the real purpose of Spdata.com is to deliver questionable content to its visitors. The site may show it by itself, cause unwanted redirects to shady third-party websites, or run a popular browser-based tactic. This scam has been particularly popular and the Internet has been flooded by pages dedicated solely to it. It involves showing users manipulative or clickbait messages that under different false pretenses, lure users into clicking the displayed 'Allow' button without informing them explicitly that doing so will subscribe them to that site's push notification services.

The exact behavior of Spdata.com is determined based on the visitor's geolocation. To ascertain that factor, the site analysis the incoming IP addresses and picks its next actions. It should be noted, that users who fail to notice the red flags may be taken to unsafe destinations such as hoax websites, phishing pages collecting all entered information, domains spreading PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs), etc. The advertisements delivered by Spdata.com should not be approached carelessly. They may employ similar social-engineering tactics to get users to click on them.

If you notice an increase of dubious sites, such as Spdate.com, encountered during your browsing activities, this could be a signal that PUP could already be lurking on your computer or device. Perform a thorough scan with a professional security solution and see if it manages to detect any suspicious applications that you do not recall installing.
