Personal-video.live is the site that can be called deceptive due to the redirects and function of triggering tons of push notifications, pop-ups, promotional content. This domain shows up out of nowhere as the result of adware-type intruder infection. However, the page shows nothing besides scam messages tricking people into subscribing to notifications, additional material form this or a different site.
Personal-video.live asks for users to Allow or Agree to content or shows a fake human verification form, the video that cannot be loaded unless you push the button. The interaction is the only thing that misleading pages need from the user because any click on the pop-up, banner, or the page itself launches push notifications, allows additional pop-ups and reroutes your traffic to advertisers' pages, commercial sites where views can get collected.
Pay-per-click is pretty much the only aim of the misleading page, so the screen gets filled with pop-ups, promotions, and fake update messages or alerts. Also, all these online advertisers focus on ad-tracking and information collection functions.
