Newsstore.site is a fake website usually displayed on computers, phones or tablets that have accepted to send advertised notifications from the Newsstore.site site.
Newsstore.site is a website set up by cybercriminals to display unwanted ads. Ads through Newsstore.site are displayed via push notification functionality in your web browser.
If you have accepted ads from Newsstore.site, these ads are displayed in the bottom right corner in Windows or through the web browsers such as Google Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge and Safari.
If the Newsstore.site website is displayed in your web browser, then you have been redirected via a rogue ad network to the Newsstore.site website. In most cases, users do not visit the Newsstore.site directly, but a redirection to Newsstore.site is created through an ad network.
The Newsstore.site tries to convince users to accept notifications after the referral. The message displayed to mislead users usually contains texts like “Click here to continue” or “Verify that you are not a robot”. They are misleading messages that trick you into clicking on the Allow button that appears in the web browser at the same time. In reality, you are not accepting a referral but accepting to allow push notifications to be sent to your computer, phone or tablet.
You must remove the Newsstore.site notifications from your computer. The notices sent through Newsstore.site redirect the web browser to various dangerous ads that might infect your computer.
Most of the ads sent through Newsstore.site are based on misleading texts. However, some ads promote adware programs and malware programs that may further infect your computer with malware.
If you continuously see ads that redirect to Newsstore.site, I recommend checking your computer for malware, more specifically adware. Adware programs are known to continually display ads to trick users like you into clicking on them. Therefore, check your computer for adware immediately and remove adware programs from your computer as soon as possible. Removing adware can also instantly stop Newsstore.site ads from appearing on your computer.
