is another dubious website that is dedicated to the proliferation of a popular browser-based strategy solely. All pages of this type operate in a virtually identical manner - they employ clickbait and social-engineering tactics in an attempt to trick visitors into subscribing to their push notification services. The con page will then abuse its newly-gained browser privileges to run an intrusive advertising campaign.

The most popular scenario observed among these hoax websites is pretending to run a CAPTCHA check. Other variants include showing a fake video player window or claiming that a file will become available for download. The typical messages include:

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

'Can't play this video! Browser may block video
autoplay… Click "Allow" to play the video

'File is ready!'

'Click Allow to watch the video'

Users should be wary when dealing with advertisements generated by such untrustworthy sources. The advertisements themselves could employ similarly deceptive tactics and upon being clicked, redirect the user to other scam pages.

It is important to stop sites such as as soon as possible. Normally, all that the affected users have to do is to revoke the permissions granted to the page. Depending on your specific browser model, you can do so via the 'Notifications' or 'Permissions' menu.
