Are you being bombarded with random advertisements and surveys? If you are, Youhomepage.org might have invaded your operating system. This infection might have been slipped into your operating system without your notice when you installed other programs carried by an unreliable installer. As you probably know already, malware if often spread via software bundles, which is why we do not recommend interacting with them. Of course, legitimate installers can offer additional programs that are harmless, but, in most cases, software bundles should not be trusted. Unfortunately, in some cases, malicious installers can even conceal malware behind attractive offers, in which case, the hijacker might have been dropped without your permission. In any case, you must delete Youhomepage.org from your browsers immediately, and the reasons are explained in this report. Please read carefully and take note of any questions that might emerge. You can add them to the comments section below to start a discussion.

When Youhomepage.org slithers into your operating system, it creates a scheduled task. Using it, it can automatically launch your default web browser every 5 to 35 minutes (the interval is likely to be set randomly) to showcase sponsored content. According to our research, it is most likely that you will be routed to pages representing surveys and promotional advertisements. Do we have to explain to you why interacting with this content might be dangerous? The surveys could be used to extract private data, and advertisements might promote unreliable services. This is the same kind of content that is represented with the help of Mans-find.org, Newcityinworld.ru, and other browser hijackers that appear to be the clones of Youhomepage.org. It is unclear if the same developer is responsible for all of them, but we do not deny that that is possible. So, even if you eliminate the hijacker, it is always possible that you will encounter its clones in the future, which is why it is essential to take appropriate security measures.

As you might have noticed, Youhomepage.org presents a search dialog box. You should not use it. If you do, you will be redirected to Google Search. Sure, this is the most popular search provider in the world, and, undoubtedly, it offers reliable services. Unfortunately, the hijacker could modify the results shown to you, and that means that you could be exposed to even more unreliable advertisements. If you think that you can trust the suspicious Youhomepage.org, all you have to do is look at the legal information. It does not exist, and you are right if you think that this is a bad sign. Privacy policies and other legal statements can reveal the real activity of the hijacker, and we are robbed of this opportunity. Overall, we have to assume that the hijacker is potentially leaking personal information and working with unreliable parties to showcase misleading offers. In fact, you should consider all of the worst case scenarios when it comes to this unpredictable browser hijacker. If you do not want to take the risk, delete it ASAP.

As you already know, there is a scheduled task that is responsible for introducing you to potentially unreliable content. If you erase this task, you will stop undesirable activity, but to remove Youhomepage.org we advise resetting your browsers. You can refer to the guide below. After you are done with this part of the removal, we advise scanning your operating system using a legitimate malware scanner. If malware leftovers are found, you can use anti-malware software to have it eliminated automatically. If you do not worry about unwanted threats attacking your operating system in the future, anti-malware software can ensure that reliable protection is activated at all times. Whichever way you decide to move, make sure that your operating system is cleaned.
