Click To Watch Live
Click To Watch Live is a website that should have been taken down by now. Nevertheless, we feel obliged to tell you more about this domain because there are bound to be many other websites like that around. These are ad servers that have a very short lifespan because of the security issues they might cause. However, when one is taken down, several others take its place, and so we’re in the midst of a never-ending battle against these annoying pests. Luckily, Click To Watch Live is not directly on your computer, but you still need to remove all the unwanted apps from your PC to be safe.
Another important thing to point out is that users encounter Click To Watch Live themselves. They don’t really get infected with malware or anything like that prior to being redirected to this website. It is very likely that the links that redirect users to this page are embedded in the sites that users visit on a regular basis. For instance, if you tend to frequent sites that offer free content, you are most likely going to encounter random pop-ups. Sites that offer free content are usually full of third-party commercials because that’s how they cover their server costs – they offer advertising space.
What’s more, sometimes you don’t even need to click an ad directly. Clicking anywhere on the site may launch a pop-up, and some users will be misled into think that the pop-up is part of the website they are visiting. For instance, if you’re on video streaming page and the Click To Watch Live pop-up shows up, it’s really easy to get mixed up. After all, this pop-up comes with a text that says “Press “Allow” to watch the video.” And if you’ve been trying to launch some video, you might think that you definitely need to click the Allow button to load it. Unfortunately, by clicking the button you will authorize Click To Watch Live to display commercial content at your expense.
And it would be hard to say that you got infected with malware or something like that. For one, clicking the button doesn’t install malware on your computer. It only modifies your browser’s settings so it could display commercial notifications. And two, you give your PERMISSION to modify your browser settings, even if you are not aware of it. Hence, to avoid the content that is promoted by Click To Watch Live, you have to be attentive when you browse the web. Especially when it comes to websites that display commercial ads.
For the most part, the Click To Watch Live notifications will be more annoying than harmful. However, you have to keep in mind the fact that this server does not review the content it promotes. Hence, it is only a vessel that brings commercial content at your doorstep. You are the one who has to decide whether you want to interact with it or not. If you choose to do so, you will face all the ensuing consequences.
The main security concern associated with such notifications is browsing history monitoring and potential exposure to corrupted content. First, the algorithm behind Click To Watch Live notifications will monitor your browsing history, so it could generate custom commercial content. If the domain displays commercial ads related to your likes and preferences, there’s a bigger chance that you will click them. This way Click To Watch Live will make more money. However, since Click To Watch Live doesn’t review the ad content, a malevolent third party could embed their own corrupted links into the ads, and you could eventually land on a dangerous page.
All in all, the Click To Watch Live notifications are really annoying because they interrupt your browsing sessions. Do yourself a favor and reset your browser to default so that you wouldn’t receive these notifications again. If you are not sure whether you have more potential threats on-board, you can also scan your system with the SpyHunter free scanner. This way, you will be able to remove other potential threats, no questions asked. At the same time, you will protect your system from other threats, but don’t forget that your browsing habits also play an important part in this!
