What is Linkvertise.com?

Linkvertise.com deceives users through browser push notifications to inundate them with intrusive spam advertisements. It falls under the category of Notification Spam and Browser Hijackers.

The website tricks visitors into enabling push notifications using fake age or robot verification. For instance, it may show a bogus notification stating "If you are 18+ Click The Allow Button", "Click `Allow` to play the video" or "Click Allow To Verify That You Are Not A Robot". Nevertheless, enabling notifications accomplishes nothing in terms of updating your browser. Instead, it grants Linkvertise.com permission to send push notification spam directly to your desktop or mobile device.

Once activated, Linkvertise.com persistently bombards your device with inappropriate pop-up ads, even when your browser is closed. These spam push notifications promote:

  • Adult and dating content Freemium games and apps
  • Software update scams
  • Weight loss or brain enhancement supplements
  • Other dubious products and services

By duping users into granting push notification approval, Linkvertise.com completely bypasses browser pop-up blockers and directly inundates devices on a system-wide scale. The malicious pop-ups are intrusive and challenging to close, with some using alarming language to persuade users to click through and potentially install malware.
