Gogoputlocker.com is the site that deceives visitors by delivering pop-ups and other content on the browser, so the person continues on the page. Unfortunately, the additional pop-up appearing on the site also aims to trick people into subscribing for either push notifications or different content.
Any click on the browser can trigger online traffic reroutes from Gogoputlocker.com to any other site with commercial content. The interaction with the pop-up can also count as an agreement to the additional pop-ups and notifications. This is pretty much unavoidable because when the screen is filled up with ads, you cannot quickly exit the window or continue on a popular site.
Gogoputlocker.com exposes the victim to tons of different pages, possibly filled with malware or leading to varying problems regarding data tracking or even privacy issues. This misleading website causes pop-ups and redirects, so once the person gets on a hacked site, he or she has no other option to click on ads and generate views that can be monetized by the publisher.
