News-zolehe pop-up advertisements appear out of the blue, detracting and annoying you. Still, they are slightly more than annoying notifications – their essence is clearly malignant, and they can bring other malicious stuff to your computer. In this post, I will guide you on how to remove News-zolehe push notifications and explain how to avoid them in the future.
Any interaction with News-zolehe pop-up notifications will be ineffective at best. At worst, the websites it can show you can introduce malware to your system. These push notifications may also promote fake shopping sites which will take your money and payment info. The latter generally ends up with losing all the money you have on the exposed card.
What are News-zolehe push notifications?
As the pop-up definition goes, these are short and small advertisements that attract your attention to a product they promote. But the difference between regular push notifications and News-zolehe pop-ups is the malignant origins of the latter. Common pop-up advertisements are offered for you to enable with a benevolent purpose – keep you aware about the fresh posts, discounts and so on. It is a useful thing to help your website to keep visitor’s attention and help the interested users to have the best price.

News-zolehe pop-up notifications, in contrast, are related to less legit web pages. You will generally witness the proposition to turn them on following the redirection from another site. There’s nothing bad in redirecting unless it throws you into such a questionable place. At that point, turning on pop-up ads is offered under the guise of the anti-bot check-up. In other cases, the websites may refuse to show you the contents unless you enable these pop-ups. These demands should raise suspicion, as websites commonly feature a less obscure anti-bot mechanism. Witnessing this demand should be the reason to skip the page doubtlessly. In some cases, even after clicking “Allow”, you will not get to the web page – it has only a landing page with the offer to turn on the pop-up ads.
How does it work?
The vast majority of browsers support enabling pop-ups from sites. Sites, on the other hand, may send out notifications with the content they like. It can be a promotion of the product published on this particular website, as well as a promotion of the page of their partner. As a result, you may see the push notification from site X, but interacting with it will direct you to website Y – because a referral link to that website was added.
Crooks rely on this feature in their approach to gain money through advertising. They trick victims into turning on pop-ups, and after that just spread numerous promotions of anyone they contract with. As you can suppose, no normal companies will have a deal with fraudsters. All the News-zolehe notifications you may see lead to other fraudulent sites. In some cases, the same user may get into a trap of multiple pop-up spamming web pages, and its browser will turn into a complete mess.
The banners these rascals show are paid under the pay-per-view model. It usually provides a miserable pay for one view, but when you have hundreds of victims and show them hundreds of ads every day – that is a much bigger sum. Even though the majority of these ads are ineffective, it can still bring all the participants a lot of profit.
Are News-zolehe push notifications dangerous?
Yes, they are. Initially, they may look safe – just a blinking window that appears a couple times in an hour. However, the things this window promotes differ drastically from what you used to see in pop-up notifications. News-zolehe.com website is controlled by crooks, who intendedly show hundreds of malicious ads in pop-ups. They also never follow any manners of advertising and can launch sporadic pop-up ads into a storm of promotions. For weak computers, that may be enough to cause performance issues. But that is not all troubles these push notifications carry.
As with any other thing related to illegal ads, News-zolehe pop-up advertisements do not contain any legit offers. Even though hackers make the banners similar to ones from Amazon, Walmart or Ebay, the website these ads will throw you to are completely different. And these pages can offer you to turn on other pop-ups, install a “useful” program, or pay for a thing at a big discount and never receive it. Let’s leave aside the cases when pop-up advertisements promote phishing pages or straightforward malware. There’s no way these pages will bring you any good, thus interacting with them is a very bad idea. For the same reason, News-zolehe pop-ups are not recommended to click on either, and the best solution is to disable them as soon as possible.
How to remove News-zolehe pop-ups?
Fortunately, News-zolehe pop-up advertisements removal is pretty easy. They sit in the browser and cannot conceal themselves on a disk. Nevertheless, as I stated above, some pop-up notifications may promote malicious programs to your system. It is nearly impossible to predict all of the cases, and manual malware removal is inconvenient. Thus, after disabling the pop-up ads the best option is to use anti-malware software. That is especially recommended if you have never allowed pop-ups, but they still appeared. This situation may be a sign of malicious software activity.
