Notices Booster Best
Notices Booster Best is a type of browser hijacker app, created for iPhones, that can fill the device’s screen with obstructive banners and cause page redirects. Notices Booster Best is typically distributed as a built-in component that’s added to another app rather than as an individual application.
If you notice any changes to your browser homepage and its search engine, as well as strange banners or popups that keep appearing on your iPhone’s screen while you are connected to the Internet and if your Safari, Chrome or other browser is frequently getting redirected to sites you have had no intention of visiting, then it is likely that you have a hijacker on your device.
Browser hijackers like Notices Booster Best are typically not used by their creators for harming the devices on which they get installed. Despite that, however, it is still inadvisable to allow an app such as this one to stay in your iPhone.
Oftentimes, browser hijackers gain all kinds of permissions, which allows them to carry out various tasks in the device without the user’s knowledge. The pop-ups, the redirects, and the ads are only some of the things that a hijacker could do in your iPhone without your permission. Other examples of what these apps may be capable of doing is looking into your browsing history, learning your location, installing new software, and more. In some of the worst-case scenarios, infections with Ransomware viruses, or Trojans may occur as a by-product of the advertising activities of such unwanted apps. That is why the best solution if you’ve found out you have a hijacker like Notices Booster Best is to uninstall the unwanted app. Removal instructions for Notices Booster Best can be found in the following guide.
Notices Booster Best iPhone Removal
If you have an iPhone virus, continue with the guide below.
If you have an Android virus, please use our Android Malware Removal guide.

This is the first thing you should try if you are getting targeted by this kind of spam.
- Log in yo your account at iCloud.com and tap on Calendar.
- Tap on the Settings icon (a gear icon) located in the lower-left corner of the screen.
- Now, select Preferences and then Advanced.
- Change the Invitations setting from In-app notifications to Email to and provide your current email.
- Lastly, click on Save to confirm the change.
Note that after you do that, you will no longer get any events automatically added to your Calendar. Instead, they’d go to the email you have provided. This also applies to the spam you’ve been getting – it would too go to your email, but at least you won’t be getting the spam notifications on your screen.
The next part of this post will tell you how to check your iPhone for an actual Calendar spam virus and how to deal with such a virus if it gets detected.
To remove Calendar Virus quickly you can try this:
1. Go to Settings on your iPhone/iPad.
2. Open Passwords and Accounts.
3. Then go to Subscribed Calendars.
4. Look for anything that looks suspicious and delete it.
First you need to close all pop-ups that are currently open.
- If the pop-up has a checkbox named “Don’t show more alerts from this webpage” click on the checkbox before closing the Ad.
- If a Block Alerts button happens to appear after you shut down a pop-up on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch tab that button to stop receiving alerts from the same page.
In case that a pop-up fails to close after performing the above operations:
- On your Mac you should make your Safari browser close forcibly by pressing Command-Option-Esc. Select Safari from the list of Apps and force close it. After you force close it you need to restart Safari, but please hold the shift button while it starts. This will prevent any pesky Ads from opening automatically.
- On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch you can do the same by pressing the home button twice in a quick succession. You’ll then see a preview of all apps that have been recently used. Swipe left to find Safari and then swipe up on the app’s preview to close it forcibly In order to prevent Safari from opening unwanted windows on startup go to Settings->Safari and Clear History, as well as Website Data. This will also clear your browser history and cookies so keep that in mind and export them if you want to keep them.
Choose Preferences from the Safari menu. Then do the following:
- Select the Security icon and then click on “Block pop-up windows“. This should stop many types of pop-ups from appearing.
- Next check on your homepage and the settings for the search engines. Adware likes messing with those. We can not provide more specific instructions for this, as you may be using many different browsers.
- Select the General icon and look at the Homepage field. It should either be empty or filled with the address of the Homepage you want.
- Follow up on the Search icon. Again it should be either the default search engine or any that you have set for yourself. Note that in some versions of Safari these settings are found in the General panel/
Open Safari and click on the Extensions button. Note that Adware use extensions almost exclusively to inject the pop-up Ads into your browser. Any extension on this list that you do not remember installing yourself is likely planted there by the Adware. Remove ALL extensions you are unfamiliar with.
