Tik-ttok.net DescriptionType: Adware
The Tik-ttok.net address belongs to a mostly empty website. Don't let its appearance mislead you, though. The page is designed to trick users into unknowingly subscribing to its push notification services specifically, through various deceptive means. This behavior is in no way unique to Tik-ttok.net; in fact, the opposite is true. Countless sites virtually indistinguishable from it have already been put on the net and more are popping into existence daily.
The most often scheme employed by these sites is to pretend to be running a CAPTCHA check for bots. Tik-ttok.net also resorts to this tactic. It displays an image of a robot accompanied by a variation of the following message:
'Click 'Allow' if you are not a robot'
If you follow the instructions, you will be granting vast browser permissions to an untrustworthy page. The consequences will include a drastic increase in the advertisements encountered on the affected device. However, the advertising materials delivered in this manner also should be regarded as potentially risky. Oftentimes engaging with them lead to being redirected to questionable third-party websites.
Users who notice that they are often being taken to deceiving sites such as Tik-ttok.net might have a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) installed on their systems without their knowledge. It is recommended to run a scan with a professional security solution to catch any such intruders lurking on the device.
