Harmful actions:

Notification spam attempt!

HITMOTOP.RU asks a user to subscribe to browser notification using the cheating methods.

  • Confirm age: click if you are 18+.
  • Press Allow to close this window.

If yes, your browser has infected by notification adware.

How to get rid of notification pop-up ads?

You cannot get rid of notifications using the close button because a new pop-up window will appear immediately.

You cannot close notifications

You cannot block notifications using the configuration button on the pop-up window.

You can choose the option "Block all notifications from this site," but it will not work because the website uses millions of sub-domains.

You will spend the rest of your life, blocking all the sub-domains!
