What does it do

The likely way you got the browser hijacker was through freeware installation. It is not likely that you acquired it in any other way, as no one would install them knowingly. If people started paying closer attention to how they install software, this method wouldn’t be as effective. In order t0 block their installation, they must be unchecked, but because they are hidden, they might not be noticed by hurrying the process. By opting to use Default settings, you could be permitting all types of unfamiliar items to install, so it would be best if you opted out of using them. Instead, select Advanced (Custom) mode as they’ll show you the items and permit you to deselect them. Unless you wish to deal with persistent unknown software, deselect every item that appears. Only continue with the program installation after you have unchecked everything. Initially preventing the infections can save you a lot time because dealing with it later will be time-consuming. In addition, you ought to be more careful about where you get your applications from as untrustworthy sources could lead to malicious software infections.

When a browser redirect is installed, it’s rather noticeable. It will change browser’s settings without your consent so you will have a new home web page/new tabs, and your search engine might also be different. All popular browsers will possibly be altered, like Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. The website will greet you every time you launch your browser, and this will go on until you eliminate Yts.mx from your machine. The hijacker will keep overruling the modifications back so there is no use in wasting time trying to modify anything. If you see that when you search for something via browser’s address bar, search results are created not by your set search engine, the hijacker likely altered it. Do not click on the sponsored content which you’ll see among the results as you could be redirected. Web page owners frequently implement redirect viruses to increase traffic and earn more revenue, which is why redirects are happening. More traffic helps sites as more users will possibly interact with the advertisements. They often have little to do with what you were looking for, so you get nothing from those sites. In some cases they could seem real in the beginning, if you were to search ‘virus’, sites advertising false anti-malware might come up, and they may seem to be real in the beginning. You could even end up on sites that harbor malicious software. Another thing you should know is that hijackers spy on you in order to acquire information about what websites you’re more likely to enter and your most common search inquiries. More customized ads may be created using the acquired information, if third-parties get access to it. After a while, you may notice more customized sponsored content, if the browser hijacker uses the obtained info. We strongly recommend you terminate Yts.mx, for all the above noted reasons. Since the browser hijacker will no longer be there to stop you, after you complete the process, ensure you undo the browser hijacker’s performed alterations.
