What is a hijacker

Hooobtainly.club is a hijacker that possibly entered your system when you were installing a freeware. The reason you have a hijacker on your OS is because you did not notice it adjoined to some software that you installed. It’s essential that you are attentive during software installation because if you are not, these kinds of infections will install all the time. While redirect viruses aren’t high-level infections but their behavior is quite questionable. Your browser’s homepage and new tabs will be altered, and a strange web page will load instead of your usual site. Your search engine will also be modified and it could be manipulating search results by injecting sponsored links into them. You’re redirected so that the web page owners could earn revenue from traffic and adverts. You need to be cautious with those redirects as you could infect your PC with malware if you got redirected to a dangerous website. Malicious software would be more harmful so avoid it as much as possible. You may find the hijacker’s provided features useful but you need to know that you can find proper add-ons with the same features, which don’t jeopardize your system. Something else you should know is that some redirect viruses will track your behavior and gather certain data in order to know what type of content you are more interested in. Furthermore, suspicious third-parties might be given access to that data. And the quicker you delete Hooobtainly.club, the better.
