Aside from the usual “Pushnow.net wants to show notifications,” the website is going to exhibit other misleading pop-up in order to entice the internet users to click on the ALLOW button. Technically, this button is a clickbait. Meaning, it serves the same purpose of permitting the website to access the web notification. To proceed with the website, close the page, watch the video, or download a file are all accompanied by the ALLOW button, which often deceives many web users.
