Your search engine will also be different and it may insert advertisement content among the real results. Redirect viruses want to redirect users to advertisement sites in order to generate traffic for them, so that owners could earn profit. Some users end up with malware via these types of reroutes because some hijackers are able to redirect to web pages that are full of malware. The malware infection is not something you want to deal with as it could bring about serious harm.

You will see more personalized content appearing, and if you’re wondering why, the hijacker is tracking your browsing and gathering data about you. It would not be strange if that data was sold to third-parties too. Thus, erase Criminated.club, before it can affect your OS more seriously.
