The chances of users intentionally opening the websites can be estimated to be close to zero. After all, the page doesn't appear to have anything useful to offer its visitors. On the contrary, cybersecurity researchers have found that the site is propagating popular online scams. For example, has been observed to try and trick visitors into unknowingly subscribing to its push notifications.

The exact scenario that could utilize could vary. Some users may be presented with a video window that currently cannot be played. The dubious page will try to convince them that the only way to see the content is to press the displayed 'Allow' button. Another popular fake scenario involves the questionable page pretending to be doing a CAPTCHA check. In this case, the impression is that users must press 'Allow' to prove that they are not robots and gain access to the supposed content of the site. Instead, clicking the button will enable the scam page's push notifications.

The push notification feature is a legitimate browser function designed to allow users to receive updates from sites that they deem important. However, countless dubious pages across the Internet are abusing this feature in order to deliver intrusive and unwanted advertisements. Oftentimes, the ads promote additional, equally as suspicious, destinations. They can also be used as vehicles for the distribution of PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs), invasive apps that usually carry adware, browser hijacker, and data-tracking functionalities.
