Driving Directions Home could be traveling with bundled software installers, so if you noticed it on your browser, you might want to check the system to see if you did not accidentally install more questionable programs. Even though the application is considered to be a browser hijacker and so it should not be malicious itself, it could introduce you to possibly harmful content. Thus, leaving it unattended might be a bad idea. If you think the same, you could slide below the text and follow the available removal steps. As for users who would like to get to know the browser hijacker better before eliminating it, we would recommend reading our report first. If you still have some questions about Driving Directions Home, you should leave us a comment below or contact us via social media.

It is probably impossible not to notice Driving Directions Home when the threat may force your browser to load Drivingdirectionshome.org instead of the website that you chose as your start page, new tab page, or default search engine. It looks like the application can switch these settings on Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer. However, it is not all because according to the software’s Privacy Policy statements the search engine can collect information about users browsing habits. Apparently, such information might be used to display targeted advertisements as the Privacy Policy says the data collection “allows the website, through its server to provide the users with a tailored experience within this website.” If you do not mind targeted ads, they may not bother you so much; still, the biggest problem with such content is not that is annoying, but that is is possibly dangerous.

Neither the browser hijacker’s Privacy Policy nor its End User License Agreement document explain where this tailored content could come from or what it might advertise. Moreover, Driving Directions Home developers claim they take no responsibility for external links provided through Drivingdirectionshome.org. In other words, some part of the advertisements could be possibly malicious. For instance, the ads might encourage you to share your sensitive information with unreliable web pages, such as sites showing fake lottery winnings or offering to participate in fictitious surveys, and so on. Furthermore, among the ads, there could be links leading to websites created to spread malware or threats similar to the browser hijacker. Therefore, if you interact with suspicious ads, you might accidentally reveal your private data to scammers or put your system at risk.

Provided you do not want to wait till something goes wrong, we advise you to erase the browser hijacker at once. One way to remove Driving Directions Home is to reset the browser it affected; to complete this task, you could have a look at the instructions available below this paragraph. Afterward, users may add the extensions they need again and if they backup all of their bookmarks they will not disappear either. Nevertheless, there is one other solution we could suggest. Instead of resetting the browser users could acquire a reliable antimalware tool of their choice. Then you would only need to set it to scan the computer and wait till results show up. Once they do, the user should be able to delete all identified threats at the same time.
