Remove (Chrome/Edge/Firefox) | Updated


I wrote this article to help you remove This removal guide works for Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.

The existence of the redirect is never a good sign. You might notice that your homepage and search provider have been replaced by this website. That, and the annoying bombardment of numerous intrusive ads are symptoms of a browser hijacker infection. Because hijackers are able to alter whatever browser settings they want, they can also install questionable toolbars, extensions and applications that are anything but useful and reliable.

What’s more, your online privacy and security will be pretty much non-existent, if your browser has been hijacked by this parasite. It is able to steal web data like browsing history, surfing habits, search queries, preferred pages, etc. Thanks to such information, the malicious software will be able to generate customized content, that the user is most likely to click on, according to the already obtained data.

The thing is, users unknowingly allow this malicious pest on their computer. How is that possible? Hijackers are most commonly spread through spam emails and attachments, free software bundles, fake update requests, dubious links and ads, corrupt torrent files, etc. In order to steer clear of unwanted cyber infections, we suggest you follow our recommendations. If you need to update software on your computer, don’t trust a random pop-up that is urging you to click on a questionable update link. Instead, rely on licensed and official sources only.

When dealing with downloaded content from the internet, it is always best to opt for a Custom or Advanced type of installation. Many users make the mistake of choosing Quick mode in the Setup Wizard, and thus are unable to see that the software bundle actually contain additional programs and applications that are actually malware in disguise. That’s how, in most cases, malicious parasites appear on your computer uninvited.

It is important to note, that while browser hijackers are not considered to be real ‘viruses’, they are not harmless. Yes, they don’t infect your computer system. They attack your browsers. And if you don’t proceed with the removal of this cyber parasite, you might lose private information such as but not limited to passwords, Login ID, IP addresses, bank account credentials, credit card numbers, etc. What’s more, you might be one click away from granting hackers access to your computer. How? By clicking on infected ads or pop-ups.

In most cases, such adverts are known to promote exclusive sales, special offers, discounts, coupons, fake update messages, questionable utility tools, as well as blinking alerts. Always think twice before you click on anything. You might allow a virus to infiltrate your PC. If you seek a way to regain control over your browser, we have a solution for you.
