You see this pop up message on your Windows computer:

Restart Browser to Block Dangerous Notifications

Why did this happen?

Your Trend Micro program finished scanning your browser for dangerous browser notifications. It detected these dangerous sites and blocked their notification permissions so you will not see the pop up from these sites again.

Browser Notifications are messages that come from a website. It allows you to get timely updates from sites you frequently visit. It lets website owners send personalized messages to retain visitors.

They are super-powerful and really handy, but scammers have been exploiting the feature to promote unwanted ads and scam sites, and even send out malicious links containing malware.

If permissions were granted, the site will show scam notifications like fake alerts, messages from fake dating sites, and adverts for products.

What should I do next?

Save your work first or bookmark your opened tabs before clicking the Restart Browser Now button.

Persistent Pop ups?
