Remove (Chrome/Edge/Firefox) | Updated

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

If you constantly get rerouted to the website, you are in trouble. This redirect is a sign of a browser hijacker infection. This parasite is known to modify various browser settings. It is more than capable of installing dubious extensions, add-ons and toolbars without the user’s knowledge or permission. What’s more, hijackers can obtain your web data like browsing history, habits or search results. It will then move on generating numerous adverts, according to the information it has on you.

That’s why, if you’ve searched for a new handbag on the internet, you will get bombarded with all sorts of ads about exclusive deals, coupons, special sales, etc. that include shoes of your liking. Such advertising content can be in the form of pop-ups, in-text, banners or blinking messages. Browser hijackers may also try to promote bogus software or display fake update requests. Do not fall into this trap. You may get redirected to suspicious or even dangerous third-party sites with malicious intentions.

Browser hijackers are most commonly spread through spam email messages, email attachments and executable files, infected links and ads, free software bundles, fake update messages, etc. We recommend our readers to always opt for a Custom or Advanced type of installation, so as to be able to view the full content of what they have downloaded. Then, you can easily deselect any additional software that was not properly disclosed.

The Virus

Oftentimes, such programs or applications are malware in disguise. Also, if you need to update software on your computer, make sure you use licensed and reliable sources. It would be a mistake to just blindly trust a random pop-up that urges you to follow a suspicious update link. More often than not, users get redirected to bogus third-party websites by such fake update requests.

You need to know that while browser hijackers are not thought to be real viruses, due to their means of infiltration (they infect your browser only, not your entire computer system), they are not harmless. They can redirect you to potentially infected sources that seek to open backdoors to hackers. Once you’ve fallen into their trap, they will seek to steal personal information such as but not limited to passwords, IP addresses, bank account numbers, credit card credentials, etc. You may also be one click away from another malware infection. Only this time it can be a Trojan Horse, worm or even ransomware that launches an attack on your PC.

If you don’t want to put your security and privacy in jeopardy, you need to proceed with the immediate removal of this malicious parasite as soon as you detect its presence on your computer. Do not waste precious time! The longer it stays on your computer, the worse it will get. At some point, your browser will fail to load all of the generated ads and will stop working altogether.
