Type: Adware is a page put on the Internet with the explicit purpose of delivering untrustworthy content to its visitors while trying to trick them into subscribing to its push notifications unknowingly. The operators of the page can then begin to generate revenue through an intrusive ad campaign.

This particular tactic relies on two factors. The page will display various deceptive and clickbait messages while hoping the users will be distracted enough or not paying sufficient attention to the page. Some examples of messages used by these dubious websites include:

'Click 'Allow' to close this window'

'Click Allow to confirm'

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

Users who fail to notice the warning signs will soon notice a drastic increase in the incoming ads encountered while browsing. The advertisements themselves may take advantage of similar questionable tactics to promote intrusive software products and PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs), potentially unsafe websites, phishing pages or other suspicious sites.

It should be noted that the reason for encountering the page in the first place could be a PUP that has managed to install itself on your computer or device. PUPs are known for spreading via underhanded methods, such as bundling or fake installers. As a result, users may not even notice that an intruder application was deployed to their devices.
