What is Recontent.site?

Recontent.site is a push notification virus that inserts intrusive ads and tricks into allowing push notifications. Redirects to Recontent.site is usually caused by the adware. Adware is usually distributed with the help of software bundling. Once inside, it starts pushing a “Show notifications” message which comes with two options: “Allow” or “Block”. If you agreed to show notifications, you will be faced with Recontent.site ads, pop-ups that spawn directly on the screen, and other activities. These notifications are the biggest income source for the developers of the program as each click the user makes on the ads brings profit. The worst thing is that they often are filled with suspicious content that causes redirects to malware-laden sites. Make sure to remove Recontent.site as soon as you notice any unwanted activity on your device and clean the system thoroughly, so no malicious content has been left behind.
