I wrote this article to help you remove This removal guide works for Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer. is a browser hijacker. Actually, it is a malicious website, which conceals a browser hijacker. Either way, if you see the page all the time, you have been infected with this nasty threat. Browser hijackers lead to nothing but trouble and headache. They slither in your system laying low and then proceed to mess it up completely. The is a warning and you must not ignore it, now knowing that a parasite hides behind it. As soon as you notice its often appearance start looking for the hijacker`s hiding spot and when you find it delete it immediately. Otherwise, you are about to encounter a ton of issues.

All hijackers do pretty much the same things and this one follows the pattern as well. Once settled in your PC, it attacks your browser settings first. It starts making changes, which you didn’t agree to. And you couldn’t have as the parasite doesn’t need your permission for this. It just alters them as it sees fit and your preferences are not its priority. Your search engine and homepage will both be replaced with the Every time you open your browser, a new tab, or try loading another page you will be redirected to The site will interrupt your online browsing activity all the time. However, this is not all you will have to endure. An avalanche of countless pop-up ads and commercials will be thrown your way 24/7.

The Virus

Aside from the constant redirects, numerous annoying ads will appear on your screen every single day. They will be everywhere prompting you to click on them. Don’t do that no matter if the ads look helpful or interesting, because if they do it`s only because the hijacker wanted them to be appealing to you. They are extremely unreliable and dangerous. They hide malicious applications, which are just waiting for you to invite them to infect your PC. And that is what your click is about. It equals your permission. A click on an ad brings more unwanted malware to your already infected machine. Keep in mind that other much more harmful threat can be lurking behind these intrusive advertisements. Trojans or ransomware pieces, for example. Avoid everything the hijacker bombards you with unless you want to corrupt your device even further. Also, as a result of all the redirects and the ad bombardment, your computer speed will slow down a lot and your system will start crashing frequently.

All these issues are ready annoying, disturbing and pose a threat of more infections but they cannot be compared with the biggest risk the hijacker puts you in. It exposes your private life to its crooks. All hijackers are created to be able to spy on their victims and keep track of every single move of theirs. That’s what a hijacker is doing in the background ever since it manages to slither in your system. It monitors everything, all valuable data you have stored on your computer, browser information, usernames, emails, passwords, IPs, accounts, etc. It not only monitors all of that but it keeps it as well. It gathers information until it reaches the conclusion that it has enough, after which it sends everything to its creators.

Crooks, who now have access to your financial and personal data and which can do with it whatever they decide. And it won’t be in your favor, for sure. This is now dangerous a hijacker is. You can fall victim to a financial fraud or, if you are extremely unlucky, to an identity theft. Don’t give the pest enough time to cause that much trouble. Delete it as soon as possible and keep your privacy safe. Do get rid of the browser hijacker, please, follow our detailed instructions below.

This time you are lucky a removal guide is available but next time you may not be. You have to make sure there won`t be a next time. Think of how you got infected with this parasite. It didn’t appear ‘out of the blue’ as many victims describe. You were the one to let it in. These infections cannot get it without you allowing them to. However, they simply cannot ask you for your consent out in the open. Of course, you won`t give them green light. And they know that. That’s why they rely on your carelessness and their invasion methods instead. With these sneaky entering tactics and your negligence, most of the time these pests succeed in tricking you. Usually, they turn to spam emails and freeware to help them fool you.

Sometimes a hijacker can be disguised as a program update and while you are downloading what you think is a legitimate update you are getting an infection instead. That’s why it is of high importance to be careful only, not to rush installation processes, take the time to read the Terms and Conditions, and double check what you agree with. If you do that you will have a bigger chance at spotting an intruder while trying to enter and you will save yourself a lot of problems. Carelessness is what cyber infections need the most. Don’t give it to them. Uninstall
