– How to remove? Removal Instructions (Uninstall belongs to the category of browser hijackers, because it can replace your browser settings without your notice. The hijacker affects all well-known browsers including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, and others. It may be promoted as a useful search tool that can bring you the best results from different search engines, but that is not what it actually does.

The hijacker’s main purpose is to expose you to adverts and thus boost online traffic. That is how it makes profit. If you wish to go back your original settings and eliminate the unnecessary ads from your browsers, you will have to terminate


How does work?

If you are not sure how the hijacker ended up in your system, you should know that it usually travels in freeware and shareware bundles. The hijacker and other potentially unwanted apps may have been presented to you during the installation process of free software. If you do not pay attention to it, you agree to all additional offers unwittingly. That is not a good idea. You should avoid programs that are attached to freeware, because they are almost always completely useless. If you choose the Advanced installation mode and decline all optional offers, you will be able to install only the software that you actually need.

Your home page and default search provider get switched to as soon as the hijacker takes over. The website presents you with a search box and not much else. The search box reroutes you to, despite the fact that, according to its description, it should present you with original results. In addition to altering your browser preferences, the hijacker causes other troubles as well. It floods you with ads, redirects you to unknown pages, slows down your surfing speed, and so on. You should not hesitate to delete from your browsers.
