Webprotectionprogram.com DescriptionType: Adware
Users who land on webprotectionprogram.com will not be provided with any helpful security tips. Instead, they will be faced with a popular browser-based tactic, as the sole purpose of webprotectionprobram.com is to lure its visitors into subscribing to its push notification service. This particular scheme has been spreading for quite a while now and as a result, deceptive websites, such as webprotectionprogram.com have been emerging on the Internet almost daily. Some examples include Profitedsurvey.site, Myhypeposts.com and Verysilenitm.work.
Under false pretenses, such as a fake CAPTCHA check or claiming that additional content will become accessible, the hoax websites attempt to convince their visitors to click the displayed 'Allow' button. These clickbait and misleading messages could be a variation of:
'Click Allow to verify that you are not a robot'
'Click Allow to download the file'
'Press Allow to watch video'
Users should be careful when dealing with the advertisements that webprotectionprogram.com will generate if its scam is successful. The advertisements could employ similar social-engineering tactics to promote dubious adware, browser hijackers or other PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs). They also could cause redirects to more serious tactics, phishing pages, shady online game platforms, etc.
