It was found that Kijojo.com is primarily targeted at users living in Turkey, but that does not mean that only Turkish users will have to suffer this irritating hijacker. Unfortunately, many users do not identify this search provider as a hijacker, even if it was installed without permission. First of all, Kijojo.com uses the credentials of Google Search when providing you with web search services. Secondly, it uses its own homepage to provide easy access links to such popular sites as facebook.com and youtube.com. Even though the links might be harmless, it might be risky to use Kijojo.com as a regular search tool because it shows ads instead of search results. This is the reason why most users remove this browser hijacker.
