Wallpaper by MyWay is a potentially unwanted application whose side function may significantly outweigh its initial purpose. It is strongly recommended that users reconsider using this program because it might inadvertently expose you to specific computer security issues that may later on result in an ultimate system crash. Remove Wallpaper by MyWay manually and then check whether your computer is absolutely safe and clean. The most efficient way to ensure your system’s stability is investing in a computer security program of your choice. If you are in need of an advice which application you should choose, you can always contact us via the comment box below or our social media channels on Twitter, Google+, and Facebook.

Let us go through a few of the annoying features of this application that really does not make you want to keep it. First, just like most of the potentially unwanted programs, Wallpaper by MyWay can be downloaded individually. You just need to access wallpaper.myway.com and get the application from there. When you open the official website, it greets you with a bright purple interface that makes it seem like Wallpaper by MyWay is an exciting program ready to help you personalize your device. You can even create your own backgrounds with this application by adding “high graphic images to your homepage background.” The application is supposedly “easy to use, fun and free!”

However, nothing in this world should be taken for granted. The thing that bothers us about this application is that it is able to modify your default browser settings. Not to mention that Wallpaper by MyWay is not too explicit about this ability. Sure enough, you will be notified during the installation about the oncoming changes, but practice shows that, most of the time, users are too eager to be done with the setup ASAP to read all the steps. Consequently, your default homepage gets changed to home.wallpaper.myway.com.

Wallpaper by MyWay can affect all the major browsers in the market. It modifies the homepage settings for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer. What’s more, for the Google Chrome browser, Wallpaper by MyWay also changes the New Tab settings. It can also create a secondary homepage for the Internet Explorer browser. The modified homepage is actually a customized Google search engine that should not be trusted. The people behind this potentially unwanted program modify Google Search in a way that it displays custom search results. The search results are customized according to your web browsing habits; so supposedly, this should make you click the search results.

Needless to say, you click the custom search results; you will be redirected to unreliable websites for online marketing purposes. It is not much of a computer security issue, but you have to consider even the worst-case scenario. Sometimes such applications like Wallpaper by MyWay could be easily taken advantage of by cyber criminals for malware distribution.

Although it would not be possible to blame this program for such dire consequences, your best option right now would be removing Wallpaper by MyWay for good. Terminate the application manually, and make sure this program has not arrived at your system in a software bundle. If it has, then you sure will need to delete an entire list of other unwanted and potentially harmful programs.
