Special-for.me is a website that displays push notifications in the browser. If you have accepted push notifications from Special-for.me, you will see notifications on your computer, phone, or tablet. These usually are push notifications that tell your computer or phone is infected with a virus or promote ads with adult content.
They are cyber criminals who then try to convince you to click on these unwanted ads. If you have no idea why the browser has landed on the Special-for.me website, it most likely has been redirected through an ad network.
More and more rogue ad networks redirect the browser to dubious websites to trick computer and phone users. In addition, these ad networks use techniques such as social engineering to trick users.
These are the message these ad networks use to trick you:
- Type Allow to verify that you are not a robot.
- Click Allow to watch the video.
- Download is ready. Click Allow to download your file.
- Press Allow to verify that you are not a robot.
In addition to rogue companies trying to scam you, some companies specialize in distributing software that displays unwanted ads on your computer. This software is known as (“adware”) and abuses the computer to promote ads such as the Special-for.me website.
If adware is installed on your computer, then you will see adjustments in your browser in addition to ads. For example, your browser’s home page may have changed, or the search engine may be redirected via an unknown website.
In this guide, you will find the solution to remove Special-for.me notifications from your computer or phone. In doing so, you should also check the computer for adware or other unwanted software that has been installed without your consent, delivered by the Special-for.me ads.
