About this threat

Allow Website Notifications are false warnings that will try to trick you into believing that there is a problem with your PC. This is a typical tech-support scam that attempts to scare users into calling certain numbers where they would be asked to provide remote access to their machine. Adware can generate very invasive advertisements so expect the alerts to constantly disrupt your browsing.

What does it do

The common way to get an ad-supported program is via free software bundles. If some type of offer comes along with the free applications, you need to deselect it, and Default settings won’t permit you to do that. So as to be able to uncheck the offers, pick Advanced (Custom) settings. Advanced will show you the items, and you just have to deselect them. It would be a good idea to always uncheck everything because if you weren’t properly informed about their installation, they do not belong on your operating system. If you want to have to terminate Allow Website Notifications or similar for the last time, start paying attention to what you install onto your machine.

The false warnings aim to fool people into believing that their PC has encountered some type of issue. It could be some kind of virus, system error, licensing issues, etc, scammers will think of all kinds of scenarios. These kinds of alerts will also warn you about leaked or stolen data because this pressures less experienced people. A phone number would also be conveniently provided, which would allegedly connect you to tech-support people who would repair the problem. Real companies won’t request you to call them, and especially not through some random pop-up, so next time you encounter similar warnings, remember that. So if allegedly Microsoft or Apple is requesting you to call them through some ads, know that it isn’t legitimate. These scammers would attempt to convince you that your system has a problem, and while they could resolve it, it would cost money. While more computer experienced users will instantly know it is a scam, less computer savvy people might fall for them, which is why those scams still exist. Even if you don’t pay attention to the first advert, it would pop-up again and again later on, so users falling for such a scam is not hard to imagine. If you do not believe us when we claim legitimate companies would never warn you about a malicious software via browser, you can always check out the provided number. The first results will certainly confirm it is a scam. So do not be afraid of closing the alert and entirely ignoring it while you get rid of what’s causing them. If you regularly get these warnings, you just need to terminate Allow Website Notifications advertising-supported program to make them stop.
