How does 1Music-online.me get access to browsers?
1Music-online.me is advertised online. It’s shown in new tab pop-ups.
Free movie sites and other pirating sites might advertise 1Music-online.me.
When 1Music-online.me shows up, it shows one of a few templates – whatever can help it blend in with the site that promotes it:
- Captcha asking you to prove that you’re not a robot by clicking Allow,
- loading bar saying tap the Allow button to continue,
- video player saying “press Allow to watch the video”.
1Music-online.me is lying in all these cases. All it wants is for people to allow it to show notifications in their browsers. It’s just hoping that users won’t look closely at the prompt and just click the “Allow” button:
Each site that wants to send notifications must show this prompt and the user must click “Allow”. This way, the user always agrees to receive notifications. But sites like 1Music-online.me lie and deceive people to make them agree unknowingly and unintentionally.
Many sites use notifications to inform users about events like new messages and emails. Sadly, lots of sites use them for advertising. Notifications are kind of like an email subscription, but more direct and harder to ignore. When a site asks you to allow notifications, think carefully if you trust the site to not spam you.
