What is Thewowfeed.com

Thewowfeed.com is a suspicious page aimed to promote various ads. It does so by displaying a push-notification window asking to click on the “Allow” button. Originally, push-notifications is a great feature alleviating user experience. It helps you track news and other information published on websites. For example, if you subscribe to push-notifications on the New York Times, you will receive its news and articles right on the desktop. Unfortunately, because of the growing popularity of such a feature, some malefactors started abusing it to promote low-quality content for earning money. Displayed banners and ads delivered by Thewowfeed.com and similar domains, can be extremely annoying and dangerous since they might lead to fishing pages, adult websites, and other types of resources spreading viral content. Software with such capabilities is often categorized as adware. Sometimes, it can be hard to remove it due to certain values installed in your system. This is why we have created this topic to help you get rid of unwanted redirects.

How Thewowfeed.com infected your computer

Adware and other Potentially Unwanted Programs can be distributed via third-party repacks. Such a method is known as “bundling”, it involves the promotion of unwanted software via freeware kits. For example, when users download a cracked or pirated piece from suspicious resources, they do not check for the presence of unwanted software during the setup. Usually, it is located inside of “Advanced/Custom” sections. Sometimes, setups may also offer to choose between “Recommended” or “Custom” installation. Always opt for “Custom” to see and choose what will be installed apart from the main program. Being careful when interacting with free software is a great skill to have. So make sure you keep it present when using the web. You can follow our tutorial below to obtain more information on removal and protection tips.
