If you allowed notifications from the Captchatopsource.com website, Captchatopsource.com displays fake and often intrusive advertisements using your web browser.
Many of the ads shown by Captchatopsource.com are associated to scam websites and adware programs. Also, some of these notifications lead to malware websites that are dangerous for your online privacy.
Adware programs typically appear legitimate and harmless. Users are attracted to download and install these programs with various offers that look useful. However, the program features rarely are what they claim to be. The only sole purpose of adware programs is to generate revenue for the adware program developers. Therefore, adware programs create redirects, display intrusive advertisements, and collect web browsing data from your computer.
