Flipora Hijacker can actually be classified as potentially unwanted application, because even though this application is called a hijacker it does not hijack your homepage without your knowledge. Also, it is rather troublesome to download and install Flipora Hijacker, because if you access the official page at flipora.com, you have to go through entire registration process to add the plugin to your browser. Users are asked to connect to Flipora either with their Facebook or email accounts. This is where you should get suspicious about this application immediately – connecting to something via Facebook account automatically exposes part of your personal information to limitless sharing online. Therefore, you should remove Flipora Hijacker from your browser because of a list of security concerns.

The official website at flipora.com even provides you uninstall instructions for Flipora plugin, basically establishing it as legitimate tool. However, it is obvious that this application is very intrusive and it totally hogs your browser whenever you go to feeshare.flipora.com. You are presented with a feed from a random social networking website (such as Tumblr or 9gag), and on the left pane you can see a list of “friends” who like the same content. It is hard to say how accurate this feed is, because if one registers with an email account, once the browser is configured, Flipora Hijacker displays a whole list of friends with the same interests, even though you have not liked anything yet.

The good part about Flipora Hijacker is that it actually DOES NOT change your homepage behind your back. Users are asked by Flipora whether they want to change their homepages. You will also notice a shortcut button added on your browser to Flipora’s website, although the button does not appear on Internet Explorer. Either way, even if you have registered to this website and installed Flipora Hijacker yourself, we highly recommend you to remove it from your PC at once, because by logging in via your Facebook account you expose your personal information to a third party. What is more, Flipora website is full of advertisements that could be full of links to corrupted websites with malware.
