Category: Browser Hijackers is a browser hijacker that might one day affect your web browsers if you use a MAC computer. It is quite a nasty infection because it changes all popular browsers’ settings without the users’ knowledge immediately after infiltrating their computers successfully. Specifically speaking, it is compatible with Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Safari. It should only change homepages and default search tools on them, but this will be enough that would be opened on your screen every time you launch any of your affected web browsers. This website looks like a legitimate search provider, but you should know that browser hijackers never promote fully trustworthy search tools, so you should not trust this one either. It will not start automatically downloading malicious applications on your computer, but, in the worst-case scenario, it might still expose you to potential threats. This might happen if it takes you to malicious pages. Because of this, we highly recommend that you remove the browser hijacker fully from your computer and then set a new legitimate search tool. Browser hijackers are not ordinary applications, so do not expect to remove the browser hijacker very easily.

You should not keep set on your browsers if this search tool has already replaced your homepage and default search tool on all your browsers. The reason we say so is one – it is not a search provider that can be trusted. Specifically speaking, the chances are high that it will show untrustworthy search results to you when you enter a search query in its search box, i.e. use it to perform web searches. These untrustworthy search results are nothing more than modified search results that might redirect users to dubious websites. We do not say that all websites they promote are malicious, but you might end up on one of them against your will one day. It is not very easy to say which of the search results are modified, so we believe that you will click on them sooner or later.

There is one more thing you, probably, do not know about It automatically collects information about users. It could not access your passwords, banking credentials, and other confidential information, but it will record a bunch of other details that cannot identify you personally. For example, it will record technical details regarding your device. For example, software installed on your device, type/name/version of the operating system, IP address, anonymous user identifiers, ISP location, etc. Also, it is interested in the so-called usage information. It includes such details as advertisements users view, websites visited, search queries, and more. Last but not least, it collects “interactions on social networks through the Software & Services.” Finally, it records some registration-related details. It might disclose all these details it records to third parties, e.g. advertisers and partners, so we suggest that you get rid of as soon as possible. Once it is gone, you could set any other search tool of your choice.

Researchers say that browser hijackers are threats that do not need permission to enter users’ computers. They are often installed silently on users’ systems and then immediately alter browsers’ settings mercilessly. Of course, it does not mean that you cannot do anything to protect your web browsers from unauthorized changes browser hijackers apply. You just need to install security software on your computer. It will ensure your system’s maximum protection. As a consequence, harmful infections could not find a way to enter your system unnoticed. Of course, you must use a 100% trustworthy security application to get the best results.

If you see when you launch your browser, we are sure that you have encountered the browser hijacker that has altered your all browsers’ settings. Delete it without further consideration. Most likely, it will be gone after you reset your browsers to default – instructions provided below this article will help you to do that. If it stays where it is, we suggest that you use an automated scanner to erase the browser hijacker fully from your system.
