Less Notifications

What is Less Notifications?

Less Notifications is an extension that, apparently, is meant to provide you with a direct link to the Notifications menu within your browser. It is not difficult at all to access this menu without the help of additional extensions and programs, which is why we have identified the app as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). If you have no idea what that means, you should continue reading. If you know a little bit about PUPs, and you also know that they are generally regarded as threats that should be deleted, you might be ready to jump to the removal of Less Notifications. We certainly have created a guide that can help eliminate this potentially unwanted program, but there are a few things you need to learn and check off the list first. So, keep reading, and do not hesitate to ask us questions via the comments form below if you feel lost.test

How does Less Notifications work?

The notifications you enable on your browser can be both helpful and completely disruptive. If they belong to legitimate and trustworthy websites, they are likely to provide you with useful content and present alerts that make your browsing experience more convenient. However, there are plenty of websites that can use this feature in malicious ways. For example, adware servers use it to flood browsers with unpredictable and often unreliable advertisements. Therefore, caution must be exercised when enabling/allowing notifications. Unfortunately, not many people understand the feature, and so disruptive and unwanted notifications might seem to be coming from nowhere. Removing such notifications might seem like a huge challenge. This is where Less Notifications by RoketMedia comes in and claims to save the day. This extension is introduced via an official website, lessnotifications.com, and Google Chrome users can also download it from the Chrome Web Store (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/less-notifications/ffdlfbiemgajjagapbhaajdldidhdhfn). Do you believe that you downloaded Less Notifications from an unreliable website or using an unreliable downloader? Scan your system immediately to check if you need to delete other threats.

According to the official description on the Chrome Web Store, Less Notifications is meant to introduce you to a “badge icon on your top right corner in your browser,” and you would be “taken to your chrome setting area, where you can see all the shortcuts and notification settings” if you clicked it. Although a shortcut might be convenient, you do not actually need it. Go to chrome://settings/content/notifications to find and manage all the activated notifications. You can use the guide below to learn more about the process. So, it is clear that Less Notifications is not exactly useful. There’s more. When you install the PUP, it also hijacks the default search provider by changing it to search.lessnotifications.com/chrome/newtab/searchresults.aspx?q=. It redirects to Google or Bing search engines, and although the shown results are not modified, this is definitely suspicious. It is also suspicious that the PUP can collect information about your activities. This information can be “shared with third parties and used for advertising.” The PUP also can provide users with “targeted advertising.” You can learn more about this by reviewing the Privacy Policy at lessnotifications.com/lp/privacy-policy.html.
