What is Andapprovidej.info
Andapprovidej.info is a highly questionable domain that will try to trick you into allowing notifications. Users are redirected to this site by either adware or the site they were visiting, and are shown an alert that asks them to allow the site to show notifications. If users agree, they will start seeing a lot of ads. There is no reason to allow any site show you notifications, let alone a random one you get redirected to, so hopefully you did not click “Allow”. However, if you did permit it, you can easily revoke the permission, and we will explain how to do that in the last section of this report. Until you revoke that permission, do not interact with any ads. In general, do not interact with and certainly do not download anything from Andapprovidej.info because it’s not a safe website.
Users are usually redirected to sites like Andapprovidej.info when they click on weird ads or visit questionable sites. Sites that redirect to pages like Andapprovidej.info are usually free streaming or adult entertainment pages. You should no longer get redirected as long as you stay away from such sites, or at least have adblocker installed.
However, if you are regularly redirected, even when browsing safe websites, it’s possible you have adware installed. Adware is a pretty minor infection that can install alongside freeware. It’s usually pretty noticeable, even if it installs secretly. To remove Andapprovidej.info redirects and pop-ups, you will need to get rid of the adware.
There are two reasons why you could be redirected to Andapprovidej.info
If you were visiting a questionable website when you got redirected, that’s probably what caused it. Loads of sites, usually free streaming, adult entertainment pages and ones hosting pirated content, show users highly questionable ads and redirect them to weird sites. A reliable adblocker added to the browser can usually prevent these redirects.
However, if you have noticed that you are redirected even when browsing completely legitimate sites, adware could be at fault. Adware usually installs unknowingly to users, though users are the ones that install it. Adware, browser hijackers and other potentially unwanted program come attached to free software as added offers, are are preselected to install alongside. They are hidden from users purposely so that they aren’t deselected, which is why software bundling is a questionable method of installation.
Fortunately, it’s not difficult to prevent these unwanted installations, as long as you pay attention to how you install freeware. During installation, you will be asked in which settings you want to install the program, either in Default or Advanced. If you opt for Advanced (Custom) settings, all offers will be made visible, and you will be able to deselect all of them. All you need to do is uncheck the offers, and can continue the program installation.
Should you allow Andapprovidej.info to show you notifications
When you are redirected to the Andapprovidej.info website, the site will say that in order to download the file, you will need to press “Allow”. An alert will pop up asking you to allow Andapprovidej.info to show you notifications. By pressing “Allow” you are basically agreeing to ads. These ads will be particularly annoying because they will appear out of the blue and show you highly questionable content.
Clicking on them or otherwise interacting with those ads is not recommended because you could be exposed to unreliable content. Those ads could be promoting questionable or even malicious programs, which if downloaded could harm the computer. The ads could also be promoting scams which aim to get your personal information and money.
If adware is redirecting you to the site, you will also notice an increase in regular ads. Interacting with those is also not a good idea for the same above mentioned reasons.
If adware is redirecting you to the site, you will need to get rid of it to delete Andapprovidej.info. We strongly recommend using anti-spyware software because the program would locate and delete all files associated with the adware. If you have allowed the site to show you notifications, here’s how you can revoke the permission:
- Mozilla Firefox: Options -> Privacy & Security -> Notifications (under Permissions) -> Settings.
- Google Chrome: Settings -> search for ‘Notifications’ -> Content settings -> Notifications.
Press Remove Website for all pages you do not want notifications from.
