Remove virus (Chrome, IE, Firefox and Edge)


What is and what does it do actually is a Browser Hijacker, for non experienced users often called a virus. It takes over your currently default installed browser, this might be Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox, Opera or even Safari for MacOS. Browser Hijackers alter your default homepage and your default search-engine and redirect them to their own website.

By doing so, the Browser Hijacker actually generates traffic to their website for revenue. This traffic is important for them as it delivers information such as search-queries, the location from their “forced” visitors using ip addresses and much more. This information can be used for multiple purposes, which is often for your privacy not a good thing.
