What is Captcha4you.top

Captcha4you.top is an unsafe website, that is used for social engineering attacks in Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, or Edge browsers on Windows, Mac, or Android operating systems. The main goal of such shady websites is to subscribe users to browser notifications, using trickery and fraud. Notifications are a function in modern browsers when news or subscription updates are delivered to the desktops even when the browser’s window is closed. The idea behind this is to inform users about hot news, social networks updates, or new YouTube videos from subscriptions. However, the cool feature was turned to their advantage by advertising networks. Captcha4you.top is one of the thousands of domains, using similar techniques to fool unsuspecting users. As a rule, when users land on some dubious resource with pirated content, torrent downloads, they are redirected to the page with the following text (see the picture below): Captcha4you.top wants to Show notifications. Click "Allow" to confirm that you are not a robot!. Click on the “Allow” button, in fact, subscribes users to notifications. At the same time, Captcha4you.top displays a standard browser window with the option to allow or block notifications from the site. If a person clicks the “Allow” button, users will start to receive pop-ups and notifications from Captcha4you.top on a regular basis. In this tutorial, we will show the exact way to remove Captcha4you.top and stop notifications from such sites.

How Captcha4you.top infected your PC

Captcha4you.top notifications may appear after visiting a phishing page hosted on the Captcha4you.top website. Usually, it pops up when the user visits sites with adult content, pirated software, or other types of doubtful sites. The browser is redirected to the page with the “Allow” button, which should show hidden content, but, in fact, subscribes the user to push notifications. It also displays a standard browser dialog box to allow notifications from Captcha4you.top. When users click the “Block” button, it redirects the browser to another random domain, then to another, and it never stops, until the user accepts it or closes the browser window. To avoid this, always use ad-blocking software, for example, AdGuard (AdGuard for Mac). To remove adware from your PC, use one of the best anti-malware applications: SpyHunter 5 for Windows or Malwarebytes for Mac.
