30Tab Safe Search falls under the umbrella of browser hijackers. These pests are the perfect combination of useless, incredibly annoying and dangerous. Being stuck with a member of this family is not good. 30Tab Safe Search must be uninstalled as soon as possible. Otherwise, prepare yourself for a horrendous experience. The hijacker will make a complete mess of your online activities. That’s why it is called a hijacker. It takes control over your browsers and does what it likes.

Once you spot the 30Tab.com site, accept it as the warning it is and start looking for the parasite. When you find it, delete it on the spot. The more time it spends on board, the more damage it will cause you. Some of it may turn out to be irreversible. Don’t sit idly by while the infection is destroying your PC. It also exposes your privacy to risk. The hijacker starts spying on you from the moment it enters. It monitors your every online more and collects sensitive data. Then, when it deems it has enough, it sends everything to the hackers who published it. Don’t let that happen. Delete the adware before it is not too late.

Once 30Tab Safe Search enters, it goes after your browsers. It makes unauthorized reshuffles in your settings. For instance, it replaces your favorite homepage and preferred search engine with 30Tab.com. From this moment on, whenever you decide to go online, you have to deal with this site. It is everywhere. And the problems is that it doesn’t provide safe and accurate search results. What it mostly provides is quick access to malware. Nothing you see on your screen can be trusted. The hijacker has to boost web traffic to specific pages and generate pay-per-click revenue for its owners. That’s why it bombards you with malicious pages, link, and ads. Every time you click on an ad, the crooks get paid and you risk worsening your situation by downloading more malware on your machine.
