Category: Browser Hijackers is a browser hijacker from the Elex family, and it can take over your Firefox and Chrome browsers without any warning. Although some users are likely to accept browser modifications willingly, it is also possible that the hijacker will take over browsers illegally. Our research team warns that malicious installers can be used for the distribution of this hijacker, and some of them could infiltrate it silently. So, was your homepage on Firefox/Chrome browser modified illegally or was this done with your knowledge? Needless to say, it is much easier to identify a piece of software that slithers in illegally as a malicious threat, but you should not identify it as harmless even if you have permitted its entrance. If you continue reading this report, you will learn why we suggest deleting, and you will learn about different removal methods that could be employed.

The first thing we did when researching was analyzing the statements in the Privacy Policy. Many users ignore this document because it takes time to go through the dry and boring legal information. Nevertheless, this is very important because legal statements reveal a lot about the software. For example, we found via this document that can collect anonymous data, as well as such information as your IP address and browser type. Another thing we have learned is that data can be collected by third parties as well, and you have to check appropriate privacy policies to learn more about them. The fact that this hijacker allows undisclosed parties to spy on you and collect all kinds of data about you is extremely disconcerting. If you fear the threat of having information leaked or used in a malicious manner (e.g., to create misleadingly attractive offers), it is best that you erase from your web browsers without further delay.

Although should work as a search tool, it is unable to provide you with beneficial services simply because it is unable to gather unique search results for you. Instead, it redirects all your search queries to Google Search, and the search results are opened in a new tab. This means that the suspicious hijacker is not only worthless but is also capable of redirecting to third-party sites, and, of course, these are not the features of reliable and beneficial search software. Most users see no harm in using this hijacker because it represents Google Search, but what regular users might fail to notice are sponsored links. It is possible that this hijacker will modify your search queries, and this could expose you to advertisements and unreliable content. It is not surprising that this hijacker can inject sponsored links because it works with third-party advertisers, and it is possible that the main reason it was created was to enable paid promotional services.

If you are ready to remove from your browsers, here is what you need to do. We advise that you scan your operating system first to see if other threats are not present. In the worst case scenario, critical threats will be detected, in which case, you will need to erase those first. When it comes to the elimination of the search tool, we advise using automated malware removal software, and this should be your primary choice if other threats are detected by the malware scanner. An alternative to automated removal is manual removal, and this option is represented via the instructions below. If you are having trouble with these instructions, let us know by posting a comment below, and we will solve your issues quickly. Also, think about the future of your operating system. If you do not want to face malware and unwanted programs again, you need to make sure that you protect it reliably.
