What is Smartest.click?

Smartest.click is a dubious site that might start to open by itself after a user installs a program downloaded from an untrustworthy source. Smartest.click tries to convince users that they need to click “Allow” button on a little pop-up, however, doing that will subscribe them to Smartest.click notifications. If a user tries to close the pop-up, one of the sites’ subdomains opens instead with its own request to allow notifications. If allowed, the notifications will start to show up in the lower right corner of the page from time to time promoting various suspicious sites. If you get pop-ups or notifications from Smartest.click on, we advise you to remove Smartest.click adware from your machine.
