What is Battery-alert.com?
Battery-alert.com pop-ups are a social engineering attack that tricks users into subscribing to push notifications. Scammers use push notifications to bypass protection against popups in the browser and therefore display lots of unwanted adverts. These ads are used to promote questionable web-browser plugins, fake prizes scams, fake software, and adult web-sites.
Battery-alert.com is a dubious site that shows the message ‘Click Allow to’ (connect to the Internet, access the content of the web site, watch a video, enable Flash Player, download a file), asking you to subscribe to notifications. Once you click on ALLOW, this website starts sending push notifications on the browser screen. You will see the popup advertisements even when you are not using the internet browser.
