The Notifyday.com pop-ups software may come in your computer as a result of different types of techniques and methods. The main one of those techniques are reported to be:

  • Software bunding.
  • Via other unwanted programs.
  • As a result of downloading the program from third-party URLs.

Such freeware apps are media players, torrent downloaders and many other free programs available on torrent and other download-providing sites. Often users tend to skip those applications, since they are located in the “Advanced” or “Custom” installation modes.

These types of modes often reveal a lot of hidden installation steps among which, the PUP, showing these Notifyday.com ads may be advertised as a legitimate program for software download.

Notifyday.com Pop-ups – More Information

The Notifyday.com pop-ups start to appear as soon as you install the unwanted software. This is because it aims to modify the settings of your web browser, including what appears to be changing it’s home page and new tab page. This effectively may result in the unwanted program to display a web page with clickbait-like news in different languages. The we page may also redirect to other random domains which do the same. One of those domains we have detected to be https://17706(dot)alexsoff.com/ which prompted us to allow push notifications:

This type of trend to show notifications is starting to become more and more widespread among adware programs and it aims to introduce one more annoying way of showing third-party ads and slowing down your computer.

In addition to simply displaying different types of ads on your computer, Notifyday.com may also start to use different types of information tracking technologies as we have detected it to display cookies:

In addition to cookies, other tracking technologies may also be used by this unwanted program, such as:

  • Geo-locators.
  • Pixels.
  • Tags.
  • Trackers.

These types of tracking technologies may be used on your computer with a clear purpose to display different types of advertisements to you. These ads, besides push notifications may also be:

  • Pop-ups.
  • Online browser redirects.
  • Taken over banner spaces.
  • Highlighted text advertisements.
  • Ad-supported search results.

Those advertisements can be quite dangerous for users in the sense that they may display different advertisements that may lead to third-party websites, which is the main source via which the adware creators of programs, like Notifyday.com generate profits. These are basically pay-per-click and other forms of online scams and schemes. The main thing here is that the advertisements may lead users to websites which Notifyday.com does not responsibility to. This means that the ads can lead to sites that may cause browser redirections to dangerous sites, that might:

  • Infect your computer with malware.
  • Cause various different types of programs to be added as extensions or installed on your PC without your consent.
  • Redirect you to third-party websites that may scam you out of your money or your information.
