About hijackers

What does it do

You likely got it was when you were installing free programs. We doubt that users would pick to install them knowingly, so free software packages is the most probable method. The reason this method is so widely used is because people are negligent when installing applications, which means they miss all hints that something attached. To block their installation, you have to uncheck them, but because they are hiding, they might not be noticed by rushing the process. Opt out of using Default settings because they will authorize unwanted installations. Instead, opt for Advanced or Custom mode as they will show you the items and allow you to uncheck them. Unmarking all the boxes is encouraged in order to prevent the unfamiliar applications. And until you do, don’t continue the installation. Having to deal with these infections can be troublesome so you would do yourself a great favor by initially stopping them. Additionally, you need to be more cautious about where you get your software from as untrustworthy sources could bring a lot of trouble.

The only good thing about browser redirects is that you will know of them soon after infection. Without your explicit permission, it’ll make changes to your browser, setting your homepage, new tabs and search engine to its advertised web page. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox will be included in the list of browsers affected. And unless you first remove Videotime.icu from the OS, you will have to deal with the page loading every time your browser is opened. Every time you alter the settings, the hijacker will just nullify them. If the browser hijacker also sets a weird search engine for you, every time you look for something via browser’s address bar or the presented search box, you would get results made by that engine. Be cautious not press on any weird results as they’d lead to advertisement sites. Owners of certain pages aim to increase traffic to earn more money, and hijackers are used to redirect you to them. Owners will be able to earn more income when there is more traffic since more people are likely to interact with adverts. You’ll be able to make a distinction between those and real web pages pretty easily, mainly because they’ll not match your search query. In some cases, they could look legitimate, so if you were to inquire about for something vague, like ‘anti-malware’ or ‘computer’, results leading to suspicious pages may come up but you would not know in the beginning. You can even end up on sites that shelter malware. In addition, the browser hijacker may also be following your Internet activity and collecting certain type of data about you. Hijackers also share the information with third-parties, and it is used advertising purposes. After a while, you may realize more customized sponsored results, if the browser hijacker uses the obtained information. Because of everything we mentioned above you need to remove Videotime.icu. After the process is carried, you should be able to undo the modifications performed by the hijacker.
