Adware programs remain one of the more annoying issues computer users face on a daily basis. Because users may install those apps unknowingly and quite often it is questionable whether the programs’ features are useful , these apps may also fall under the potentially unwanted program category. Oftentimes, adware bombard users with ads. What’s more, if the adware is also equipped with browser hijacking capabilities, the program can redirect users to sponsored sites in an effort to generate revenue for its operators. In the end, these kinds of programs exist mostly to make money, and that fact drives their persistence.
These programs are often affiliated with websites that are supposed to distribute their ads with the promoted content. Pushyouworld.com is an example of one of these many adware affiliated websites active on the web. Like many other sites of the same kind, Pushyouworld.com uses a popular bot check to disguise its attempt to lure visitors into accepting the website’s push notifications. Upon landing on the page, users see the image of a robot, along with a blank page and text telling them to “click allow to verify you are not a robot.” This is supposed to mimic an actual anti-bot check. Should you click “allow,” you will only permit the page to send ads to your browser, using the push notification function.
These ads may send you to scam or phishing portals, misleading websites with questionable content, or to potentially unwanted program installers. In any of those scenarios, the possibility of downloading malware is heightened. You can, however, avoid potential dangers posed by sites like Pushyouworld.com by immediately closing the browser tab and not clicking any buttons or links on similarly misleading pages that ask you to “click allow” upon loading.
