Steadycaptcha.live is an untrustworthy page that is likely to show visitors various online tactics. When analyzed by cybersecurity experts, the site tried to trick them into unknowingly subscribing to its push notifications, a common behavior among these rogue websites. However, users should remember that the tactics they encounter on such pages may vary, based on specific factors, such as each visitor's IP address/geolocation.

Steadycaptcha.live may pretend that users must pass a CAPTCHA check, to prove that they are real humans before accessing the supposed content on the site. The displayed message may be a variation of 'Click Allow to confirm that you are not a robot!' In reality, the 'Allow' button has an entirely different function and will enable the site's push notifications.

Most rogue pages will then begin abusing the received browser permissions to deliver unwanted advertisements to the user's device. The advertisements are highly likely to show promotional materials for questionable or even unsafe destinations - fake giveaways, technical support frauds, phishing schemes, etc. Users also may see advertisements for PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) posing as legitimate software products.
