Enabling notifications introduced by Thenewstreams.com is a terrible move, and you might have realized that already. After this action is taken, distracting and annoying pop-ups representing all kinds of offers, warnings, alerts, and suggestions start showing up on your screen. Some people might successfully ignore and avoid them, while others might decide to interact with them. While we do not advise interacting with the introduced pop-ups, we do not recommend ignoring or avoiding them either. Instead, you want to remove them, and you cannot do that by closing them one at a time. To delete Thenewstreams.com pop-ups and notifications, you need to adjust settings within your browser, and we can help with that. Our research team has analyzed the suspicious adware server, and we can show how to disable the onslaught of annoying pop-ups.
Thenewstreams.com might be introduced to you when you visit porn, gambling, gaming, streaming sites that are unreliable. You could be redirected to the adware server randomly, when you click seemingly unrelated buttons, or when you interact with the content shown on the website. That is how people are usually introduced to all adware severs, including Cvazirouse.com, Gichelfactice.info, or Carrisonerd.club. The difference with Thenewstreams.com is that it poses as a news website, and people are more likely to trust that it is harmless. In reality, the news articles are taken from reputable sources, and the website was only created to introduce you to ads. What’s wrong with ads? Virtual advertising is not inherently malicious, and you are likely to see harmless ads when you scroll down your Facebook feed, watch YouTube videos, or simply shop online. However, there is a huge difference between ads that promote legitimate services, products, and deals, and ads that were set up by virtual schemers.
There is no doubt that the ads presented via Thenewstreams.com – and by this adware server when you enable notification – are misleading and linked to schemers. We have analyzed the pop-up ads on the site and the notifications presented via it, and we have found it to promote a financial scam, a bogus malware removal tool, a PUP extension that posed as a video converters, and a PUP extension that presented a browser hijacker as an essential system update. Clearly, Thenewstreams.com cannot be trusted when it comes to the content it produces. Furthermore, when you interact with this website or the ads shown by it, you might let in intrusive data-tracking tools that could be used to spy on you and pass on sensitive information to unknown parties. This information could even be used to create more attractive ads. For example, if you have recently researched malware removal tools, a pop-up ad promoting, supposedly, the best removal tool could show up right away. This could increase the schemers’ chances of fooling you. Obviously, you do not want that, and that is why besides deleting unwanted extensions you also should clear browsing data.
