It seems that the redirect attempts to convince you to allow the generation of push notifications in order to become able to access the best video streaming websites. Here is what you will see when the redirect is loaded in the browser:


However, we strongly recommend that you refrain from doing this as it could seriously endanger the security of your system. Since the website is known to be part of spammy advertising campaigns it primarily aims is to trick you into installing rogue applications or visiting poorly secured and sometimes even

phishing web pages.

The unexpected appearance of the domain in your browser could be caused by a potentially unwanted program that has managed to sneak into your device. Since the spread of potentially unwanted programs is often realized via software bundles you might have installed such a program along with other desired and supposedly useful free third-party programs. Unfortunately, the installing process of undesired programs could be easily missed as their presence is rarely disclosed properly by apps’ installers. A good prevention tip we could recommend is the Advanced/Custom configuration approach. Sometimes there you could find more information about added extra programs and eventually prevent their unattended installation.

As long as there is an undesired program associated with running on your device, it could flood your affected web browser with many online advertisements some of which could be even more annoying than the discussed redirect. On one hand, this side effect could make your affected browser be it Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Explorer, Opera, or Safari sluggish or even unresponsive at times. On the other hand, all those ads and redirects could endanger the overall security of your computer. Since the main idea behind the creation of PUPs especially of adware type is revenue generation, their owners often skip carrying out all essential security checks and release poorly secured websites in their advertising campaigns. As a result, the program could redirect you to corrupted web pages, or present you ads that land on bogus websites.

Another issue that may occur as a result of having an undesired program running on your device is unsolicited data collection. To complete their goals, programs of this kind usually activate various tracking technologies such as cookies, web beacons, javascript, etc. and start spying on users’ behavior. Once they obtain the needed data, they transfer it to remote servers. This in turn enables their owners to misuse it for the creation of targeted advertising campaigns.

So while the annoying redirect keeps interrupting your browsing sessions, the app associated with these activities might be capable of gathering browsing-related information such as browsing habits, visited websites, saved bookmarks, IP addresses, geographic location and even login credentials.
