Trustcontent.monster is a fraudulent website dedicated to conducting a browser-based scheme. By employing deceptive tactics to trick unsuspecting users into subscribing to its push-notification services, the website can start delivering unsolicited advertisements and generating revenue for its creators. Trustcontent.monster is just one of a myriad of similar misleading websites.
When visitors land on it, Trustcontent.monster will show them several fake alerts or error messages trying to convince the users to click the 'Allow' button. Furthermore, an image of a video that is buffering currently will be displayed. The implication is that something is preventing the video from running smoothly and the users must click 'Allow'to view it.
As we said, however, following the instructions and clicking the button will have an entirely different effect. Trustcontent.monster will receive the browser permissions it needs to start generating its promoted advertisements. Closing the affected browser will not affect the frequency with which advertisements are shown. Although some of the advertisements may seem tempting, users should remember that clicking on them could redirect to compromised third-party websites or ones that peddle Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs) disguised as software updates.
