Question: Not sure where these notifications are coming from?

Hi

I have recently been getting notifications from something called Kamdroa,

I don't know what this is, its not a site or app I remember using.

I've opened my notification center and I switched off notifications for this thing, but I'm confused as to where they came from, if it is possibly a virus, or how it got into my notifications in the first place?

Any help would be much appreciated

ThankyouUser uploaded file



I'm using a Macbook Air.

It's not a virus. You must have downloaded, installed, or clicked on something. You might give this a try:

Basics for Uninstalling Software


Most OS X applications are completely self-contained "packages" that can be uninstalled by simply dragging the application to the Trash. Applications may create preference files that are stored in the /Home/Library/Preferences/ folder. Although they do nothing once you delete the associated application, they do take up some disk space. If you want you can look for them at the above location and delete them, too.


Some applications may install an uninstaller program that can be used to remove the application. If you cannot find the uninstaller then you could download the freeware, Easy Find, to locate files that need to be removed. The places you need to search include:


  1. /Home/Library/Applications Support/ folder. Check if the application has created a folder then delete the folder that's in the Applications Support folder.
  2. Applications may install a startupitem or a LogIn item. Startup items are usually installed in the /Library/StartupItems/ folder or the /Home/Library/StartupItems/ folder. Login Items are set in the Users & Groups preferences. Open it in System Preferences, then click on the Login Items tab. Select the item from the list and click on the Delete [-] button to remove it.
  3. Some software use startup daemons or agents. Look for them in /Library/LaunchAgents/ and /Library/LaunchDaemons/ or in /Home/Library/LaunchAgents/.


Some applications install a receipt in the /Library/Receipts/ folder. Usually with the same name as the program or the developer. The item generally has a ".pkg" extension. Be sure you also delete this item as some programs use it to determine if it's already installed.


There are many utilities that can uninstall applications. Here is a selection:


  1. AppZapper
  2. AppDelete
  3. Hazel
  4. AppCleaner
  5. CleanApp
  6. iTrash
  7. AppBolish
  8. AppUninstaller
  9. Uninstaller

It's most likely from Kamdora.com : not all notifications are from 'something you installed'.


In Safari - Preferences - Websites - Notifications : select it & click the Remove button. You might un-check 'Allow websites to ask for permission to send push notifications' while you're there.

The entry in System Preferences - Notifications should disappear.
