What is a browser hijacker

Searchcompletion.com will modify your browser’s settings which is why it is thought to be a redirect virus. Free applications usually have some type of items added, and when users don’t uncheck them, they’re authorized to install. If you don’t want these kinds of infections to inhabit your OS, be careful about what type of programs you install. Hijackers are not classified to be harmful but they do carry out some suspicious activity. Your browser’s home website and new tabs will be set to load the hijacker’s advertised page instead of your usual site. Your search engine will also be different and it could be able to manipulate search results and inject sponsored links into them. Hijackers will redirect you to advertisement web pages so as to boost traffic for them, which allows owners profit. Certain hijacker are able to redirect to malicious pages so unless you want to get your computer infected with malware, you should be cautious. Malicious programs would be a much more serious infection so avoid it as much as possible. You may consider redirect viruses helpful but you could find the same features in trustworthy extensions, ones that won’t pose a threat to your computer. Hijackers are also known to collect certain kind of information, like pages visited, so that more customized advertisements may be shown. In addition, suspicious third-parties might be given access to that information. And the faster you remove Searchcompletion.com, the less time the hijacker will have to affect your operating system.

Relying on those results isn’t encouraged as you’ll end up on sponsored web pages.

Increased traffic helps website owners make profit since more people will probably interact with the adverts. It’s not uncommon that those sites do not actually have anything to do with what you are were initially searching for. Some might seem valid, for example, if you were to search for ‘antivirus’, you might get results for websites endorsing doubtful products but they may look completely real at first. You should to be careful because some sites could be damaging, which could allow severe threats to infiltrate your operating system. Browser hijackers also tend to monitor how users use the Internet, collecting certain data.
