If you suddenly see notifications from Beta-one.net appear in the lower right corner of Windows. Or, if you see these same notifications on an Android or iOS phone, you are a victim of the Beta-one.net scam website.
What is Beta-one.net?
Beta-one.net is a website set up by rogue online advertisers. The purpose of Beta-one.net is to trick users into clicking on advertisements. This is how online advertisers make money. It is a deceptive way to persuade users to click on the ads. Here’s how it works.
If you end up on the Beta-one.net website then you are redirected via pop-up ads and redirects in the browser. Suspicious ad networks abuse the browser and redirect the browser to rogue websites, Beta-one.net is one such misleading site. If the user has landed on the Beta-one.net site then a misleading text is displayed to make the user click on the “allow” button that is displayed by beta-one.net. It is a way to abuse the notification functionality. If you click on the “allow” button because the Beta-one.net site asks you to “Click allow if you are not a robot”, then you are accepting the sending of notifications.
In reality, you are not receiving everyday notifications through this site, but advertised notifications. These are notifications that contain advertisements. It is these ads that you see on your computer or cell phone. So the spammers behind this Beta-one.net site try to trick users into clicking on as many pop-up ads as possible. If a user clicks on these ads, then a few cents are earned for the advertiser. It is an online scam, and many users fall for it.
If you have also fallen victim to the scam site Beta-one.net? Then you should remove the notification permission for Beta-one.net from the browser. This way, the Beta-one.net site will stop sending advertisement-sponsored notifications via the browser.
