Home Malware Programs Browser Hijackers You-just-won-prize.com


Posted: September 17, 2020

You-just-won-prize.com is a Web page that users may see while browsing low-quality sites used to host illegal sports streams, pirated media, or game and software cracks. As the name You-just-won-prize.com suggests, visitors are likely to be told that they have won an amazing price, and then asked to proceed to claim it. However, before any of this happens, users may see a warning asking them to click 'Allow' to confirm that they are not a robot. This is a regular check on the Internet nowadays, and many users are unlikely to suspect that there is anything wrong with it. However, You-just-won-prize.com is not using a legitimate anti-robot check and, instead, it relies on fake instructions to trick you into clicking the 'Allow' button that will enable this website's push notifications.

Once you subscribe to You-just-won-prize.com's notifications unknowingly, you may start to see regular push notifications originating from this website. These will be used to promote all kinds of content, including links to non-trustworthy websites, products, and services. For the sake of your online safety and privacy, do not interact with these links.

Eliminating unwanted browser notifications requires some tampering with your Web browser settings. In the case of the You-just-won-prize.com notifications, you need to open your browser's configuration, and then ensure that You-just-won-prize.com's permissions to use notifications are removed.
