Our computer security experts have categorized Gamegogle.com as a browser hijacker. This search engine is set as your default homepage when you install a browser hijacker on your computer bundled with shareware and freeware applications.

Nevertheless, you can remove Gamegogle.com from your system without any complications, as long as you make sure your computer is protected against similar intruders in the future. After all, Gamegogle.com might not be the only potential threat running.
This browser hijacker can affect almost anyone anywhere in the world, but seeing how it is entirely in Portuguese (Brazilian sort), we can say that Gamegogle.com usually infects computer users in Brazil. There is no way to download the hijacker’s installer file directly, so you should be careful about what you download and install from third-party websites. For example, if you download freeware and shareware from torrent and other file hosting sites on a regular basis, be prepared to go through a confusing installation wizard. If you are not attentive enough, it is very likely that Gamegogle.com and similar computer threats will enter your system without any difficulties.
This browser hijacker affects Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer. The infection will change your homepage and default search engine to Gamegogle.com. This website offers you a search engine function and a number of shortcuts to popular websites. For example, through Gamegogle.com, you can immediately access Facebook, Google, YouTube, and other pages. However, the fact that this site is full of online gaming shortcuts and commercial ads should ring the alarm bell for you. When it comes to such content, chances are that browser hijackers do not check whether the third-party information is reliable or not. As a result, Gamegogle.com may not redirect you to malicious sites forcefully, but clicking on third-party links could result in undesirable consequences.
It is obvious that you should not tolerate Gamegogle.com any longer. This browser hijacker has a background service that connects to the Internet to download updates.
