Normally, such security measures ask the user to write down letters or numbers that are seen on the screen, click on pictures of similar objects or solve a quick problem. However, the page requires the user to click an ‘Allow’ button, which it presents as a CAPTCHA. Clicking on the ‘Allow’ button would enable the website to start spamming you with Web browser notifications that are likely to affect your browsing quality and cause irritation. The page uses the user’s Web browser notification to promote various products and services.
