What is

As you can probably tell, is a browser hijacker, and this program will try to expose you to commercial content. Usually, that content is not as safe as we would want it to be, so it is more than obvious that you need to remove from your computer ASAP.

In this description, we will tell you more about such programs as, and we will also tell you how to avoid similar intruders. Although browser hijackers are not immediate computer security threats, they are utterly annoying, and they could lead to severe security issues. Hence, you should not be idle about this one.

Where does come from?

This program belongs to a very big family of similar intruders. In a sense, is practically identical to,,, and many other programs from the same group. Although the sheer number of similar browser hijackers might feel overwhelming, we have to remember that such programs tend to be quite alike. What does it mean? It means that if we could remove previous browser hijackers, it should not be a problem to deal with, too. On the other hand, perhaps we should pay more attention to how this program spreads around because it is important we avoid similar intruders in the future.

Our research shows that might come via random pop-ups that appear on your screen when you browse the web. Of course, unless you click those pop-ups, the program should not be installed on your PC. But users tend to click such advertisements without any second thought. As a result, browser hijackers, adware, and other unwanted software slither into the target system. What’s more, these pop-ups tend to appear on your browser when you have other suspicious programs installed. This would mean that your computer has already been compromised prior to the browser hijacker’s arrival.

That is why computer security experts strongly recommend that you run a system scan with a reliable antispyware tool. What’s more, you should employ safe web browsing habits, refraining from accessing third-party file-sharing sites that would be part of the adware and unwanted software distribution chain. What we are trying to say is that having a computer security tool on-board is a good idea, but the websites you open every single day are just as important when you need to ensure your system’s safety.

What does do?

Since this program is a browser hijacker, it will surely behave like one. It will change your default homepage, your search engine, and even the new tab settings. The modifications performed may differ from one browser to another, but practically affects Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer in a very similar manner. The hijacker also adds an additional bar to your browser, and it displays local weather information, as well as shortcuts that should connect you and Facebook. Needless to say, you can have various shortcuts to your favorite websites added to your browser’s shortcut bar, so such third-party service is more than redundant.

What’s more, can track your online activity via tracking cookies. Although the program cannot collect personal information and such data as your banking logins or passwords, it still presents a particular security issue. On top of that, the browser hijacker will continue to display modified search results that should push you into interacting with the promoted content. However, the content will be embedded there by third parties, and you can never know whether the third party in question just wants some money or something else. To put it simply, it is not safe to keep on your computer, so you should do everything in your power to get rid of it.
