Notices Fixer Best
Notices Fixer Best is an iOS browser hijacker that targets the Safari browsers of iPhone devices and turns them into ad-displaying platforms. Notices Fixer Best will also cause automatic page redirects in your browser and display obstructive pop-ups and banners on your screen while you are connected to the Internet.
Additional signs that may indicate there’s a browser hijacker like Notices Fixer Best in your iPhone is if your browser suddenly starts to conduct your online searches using a different default search engine instead of the one that you’ve chosen yourself. Also, if the browser now starts with a new homepage address, this is yet another indication you are likely dealing with a browser hijacker.
All of the symptoms we’ve mentioned thus far are caused by the hijacker for the purpose of spamming you with paid advertising content and making you interact with it. This earns money for the people who’ve created Notices Fixer Best which is also the main reason behind the overly aggressive behavior of the unwanted app. When you combine the unpleasant behavior of the hijacker with the fact that it pretty much does nothing to provide you with any useful functions, it quickly becomes apparent that this software piece has no place on your iPhone.
An even more important reason why you should quickly remove this hijacker as soon as you notice that it has latched onto your device’s browser is the potential dangers that it may expose your iPhone to. Viruses like Trojans or Ransomware may hide behind some of the pop-ups and page redirects, which is why it is essential to remove the Notices Fixer Best hijacker ASAP so that its advertising activities will cease. In the guide below, we’ve tried to provide our readers with instructions on exactly how to remove the unwanted app and you are advised to follow those instructions.

Remove Notices Fixer Best iPhone Calendar Virus
If you have an iPhone virus, continue with the guide below.
If you have an Android virus, please use our Android Malware Removal guide.
If you have a Mac virus, please use our How to remove Ads on Mac guide.
If you have a Windows virus, please use our Windows Virus 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.
