If you use multiple email providers, you might believe My Email Signin to be a great asset. This seemingly beneficial tool is represented as an extension, and it can be downloaded by all using Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox browsers. The creator of the extension (Polarity Technologies Ltd.) set up http://myemailsignin.com/ to introduce users to it. The installer of this add-on is also available at the Chrome web store (extension ID is aclebadgjklemddbgcjaoggkedebfgah). When installing the extension, the user has to agree with certain changes that pertain to homepage, search provider, and new tab settings. Many users do not understand what they agree to when they install the extension, which is why it is only natural that they want to delete My Email Signin as soon as possible. Even if you believe you know everything about this suspicious extension, we advise reading this removal guide because you might learn something new.
My Email Signin is linked to Search.hmyemailsignin.com, and there is no way of separating the two because, essentially, it is the same program. The extension itself does not offer anything, and its only task is to change your browser’s settings to introduce you to Search.hmyemailsignin.com. That is exactly how Search.hplayfreemusic.co, Search.hdailysocialweb.com, Search.htextfrompc.co, and tons of other hijackers created by Polarity Technologies Ltd. are represented as well. While official download sources exist for all of them, in many cases, users acquire them bundled with third-party software, which can be very dangerous. What if the suspicious extension/hijacker enters your operating system along with highly malicious threats? If that is what has happened, a legitimate malware scanner will help you out. Do not be surprised if it classifies My Email Signin as a threat as well. Although it changes browser’s settings with the user’s permission, its activity is not beneficial or reliable, and it is best to remove it.
What is the biggest issue when it comes to My Email Signin? While it changes settings and spies on users to collect information that might include personal data, the worst thing is that this hijacker redirects your searches. It redirects to Yahoo Search, which is an issue already because you are not informed about it beforehand. On top of all that, the results are modified to include sponsored content. That is a serious thing because you do not know what kind of links could be mixed in with the normal Yahoo Search results. Overall, although My Email Signin allows you to connect to Google Mail, Yahoo Mail, Hotmail, Outlook, and Facebook from the same spot, you should not continue using it. If you do, you run a risk of facing misleading links, and that could be the beginning of more serious security issues. Besides getting rid of the hijacker, we also recommend clearing the browsing data to ensure that cookies and cache are cleared as well. You are shown how to do that in the removal guide below.
Once you remove My Email Signin and clear your browsing data, your browsers should be clean, unless other threats exist. As mentioned before, you can use a malware scanner to help you inspect your operating system. Only when you know which threats exist will you be able to take appropriate action. If you are lucky, the other active threats will be not complex, and you will be able to delete them yourself using the guides available on this website. If the infections found on your operating system are too complex, you might be unable to erase them all yourself. What should you do in this case? There are several different options you have, but we advise installing anti-malware software. This software will ensure that you do not need to waste another moment worrying about the removal of existing threats or the protection against those that could try to slither in in the future.
