Fastcaptcha.azurewebsites.net employs deceptive tactics to coerce users into enabling push notifications, ultimately inundating their devices with disruptive ads. This website operates as a platform for intrusive spam advertisements, falling under the category of potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) and browser hijackers.

The modus operandi of Fastcaptcha.azurewebsites.net involves tricking visitors into activating push notifications through the utilization of counterfeit system notifications and alerts. One common ploy is to present users with fabricated warnings asserting that their browser is "out of date" and that enabling notifications is necessary for updating it. Once users fall for this ruse and grant permission for notifications, they unwittingly open the floodgates for a barrage of bothersome pop-up ads, even when their browser sessions are terminated.
