Last week, I saw a ton of posts like “my web browser demonstrates me unwanted Eandthepe.work pop-up promotions, is it a computer virus?” or “these Eandthepe.work pop-up advertisements in my Chrome making me insane, how to handle them?”. According to the data for last months, computer virus creators began a massive adware circulation campaign.

Pop-Ups : Discovering The Nature
You can admit that some sites (like a Eandthepe.work) use you pop-up promotions. The message can have something like “do you want to receive notifications regarding the most recent information?” or “allow notifications to be reported regarding new price cuts?”. Normally, such messages are harmless, and may just distract you with its sudden appearing. Also it can be simply disabled, in case notices from this website are no longer needed.
Pop-up notifications are fairly an reliable advertising tool. If you want items of some kind, you can allow pop-ups from the web site where you can buy this stuff, and also as soon as these products are in stock again, or if you can have a price cut – you will get the notice concerning this. The counterparty – online sellers, car lending companies, etc – will be in profit, too – buyer will definitely get a tip concerning the item he/she meant to pay for. As well as such a marketing method is practically cost-free – this aspect is extremely vital for corporations.
