Browser hijackers are not exactly harmful but they do perform some suspicious activity. Your browser’s homepage and new tabs will be modified, and a different website will load instead of your usual site.

The reroutes are performed so that the owners of those websites can earn income from traffic and ads. Not all of those redirects will lead to secure websites, so you may accidentally get a malicious program. And malicious software would bring about more damage to your PC than this.
