30Tab Safe Navigation is a new threat that can affect all your major browsers (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer); therefore, you should be careful and take it seriously if you find it on your computer. This is indeed a browser hijacker that can set itself as your homepage, new tab, and default search engine as well.

Multiple system security threats are what you may be facing right now and if you are not quick enough, you could infect your computer with more threats. This is why we suggest that you do not hesitate and remove 30Tab Safe Navigation right away. For the details, please carry on reading our full article.
Since this browser hijacker has no official webpage where you could download it off of or install it directly -- at least we have not managed to find one --, its creators have to be creative enough to be able to spread it over the web. This is when free software bundles come into play. This distribution method is favored by lots of schemers since it is still very easy to fool unsuspecting and inexperienced computer users. These bundles usually have deceptive installers that try to hide the real content or make it difficult for users to notice. This is why you should always read the license agreement and every installation screen as well to make sure that you have all the information about your bundle. It is possible that you need to select the custom installation option before the additional tools and browser setting changes are revealed to you, if at all. Obviously, in this case, you will not be totally safe just by deleting 30Tab Safe Navigation alone.
If you want to avoid bundles landing on your computer, you need to stop clicking on third-party advertisements and landing on suspicious websites, including online gambling, gaming, torrent, shareware, and dating pages. Of course, it is also an option that your computer is infected with adware and that is why you are presented with unsafe third-party ads while you are browsing the web. This only confirms our advice that you need to scan your system with a reliable malware scanner after you delete 30Tab Safe Navigation from your PC.
When this browser hijacker is installed, 30Tab.com is set as your homepage, new tab, and default search engine. This search website offers you a number of easy access links apart from the web search feature. These links are set into different categories, such as shopping, games, news, and social networking sites, but you can also find a third-party ad in between. But that is not the only ad you can see on this page. There is yet another one to the right, which should not be trusted either. You have no guarantee that these ads come from respectful and trusted sources. Therefore, your click could end very badly for you as you may infect your computer in the background or end up on a fake website run by cyber criminals who cannot wait to scam you out of your money. Exactly the same may happen if you use this page to search the web. This hijacker may introduce you to modified Google search results that may contain questionable third-party ads and links. However, you will not be able to differentiate between trustworthy or unreliable content. This is how you may end up clicking on the wrong content and infecting your computer with even more threats or ending up on malicious sites. No wonder why we advise you to act now and remove 30Tab Safe Navigation from your computer.
Since there is a possibility that this browser hijacker may alter your Target lines in your browser shortcuts, it is advisable to start with checking those first. Then, you can reset all your major browsers. We have included the necessary instructions below this article. Please remember that this threat could be one of several. Leaving any potential threat on your system could lead to further infections and online scams. Therefore, it is vital that you clean your system properly.
