Smellert.top is a fake website usually displayed on computers, phones or tablets that have accepted to send advertised notifications from the Smellert.top site. Smellert.top is identical to Suggered.top.
Smellert.top is a website set up by cybercriminals to display unwanted ads. Ads through Smellert.top are displayed via push notification functionality in your web browser.
If you have accepted ads from Smellert.top, 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 Smellert.top website is displayed in your web browser, then you have been redirected via a rogue ad network to the Smellert.top website. In most cases, users do not visit the Smellert.top directly, but a redirection to Smellert.top is created through an ad network.
The Smellert.top 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 Smellert.top notifications from your computer. The notices sent through Smellert.top redirect the web browser to various dangerous ads that might infect your computer.
Most of the ads sent through Smellert.top 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 Smellert.top, 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 Smellert.top ads from appearing on your computer.
