Removal Tips belongs to the category of the most annoying online infections – browser hijackers. Fortunately, it is not very dangerous, especially if you remove the moment you see it having usurped your browser (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox).

However, keeping it on your computer system for an extended period of time can have some negative consequences. So, if you take action soon enough, additional threats should be prevented. You see, if you use the PUP (potentially unwanted program) for your regular search sessions, get ready for your PC to begin working slower than usual. It has to be mentioned that the browser hijacker goes all the way and replaces all the features of your browser, that is, the new tab window, home page, and default search engine.

Why is dangerous?

The PUP possesses many negative features that will make you go crazy. First of all, we know that there are no users who would enjoy being spammed with an endless flow of advertisements (that can be commercial and non-commercial). Having the hijacker on the PC will result in a never-ending stream of ads that will be placed literally everywhere. There is a possibility to find one on your home page, a few of them somewhere around your search results, and an abundance of them on the websites that you open for a visit. Some of the ads are considered to be quite a threat. While many advertisements might be legitimate, many can redirect the user to corrupted pages. These websites can spread malicious software to all their visitors. The malware can include adware, ransomware, Trojan horses, and other stuff that you do not want to have. What is more, the results can have some sponsored links that actually look legitimate. These can have similar consequences as the ads. Moreover, do not forget the possible identify theft. The PUP is made to collect non-personal info, which can include some personal details. However, if you take care of your PC and uninstall now, you will be safe from all of this.
