- Hijacks homepage
- Changes default search engine
Www-homepage.com is a tremendously suspicious search provider that was reported taking over web browsers as a hijacker. Even though we have not found this search tool to corrupt browsers, we do not dismiss the possibility of its acting as a browser hijacker. If you are sure that this search tool was installed without your permission, there is no doubt that you need to delete it as soon as possible. In fact, you should remove www-homepage.com even if you have installed it yourself. The reason this search provider deserves removal is that it can introduce you to unreliable search results and show misleading ads.
Although it is possible that some users will be introduced to www-homepage.com by a redirect virus, it is most likely that it will replace regular homepage and search provider tools. As mentioned previously, it is unclear whether or not this search provider can hijack browsers, but we are sure that some users might install www-homepage.com by accident. If you download software bundles carelessly, you might agree to install undesirable software without even realizing it. If this happens, you might think that your browsers were attacked by a hijacker that requires removal. Of course, you might install www-homepage.com thinking that it is a legitimate and useful search provider as well.
If www-homepage.com replaces your homepage, you will be exposed to suspicious banner ads as soon as you launch your browser. In fact, we recommend deleting www-homepage.com because these ads are completely unpredictable. Our researchers have found that these ads can be shown in different languages, including Russian and English, which is very suspicious. On top of that, the News, Sport, Entertainment, and Business news shown at the bottom are represented in French. Needless to say, this search tool is all over the place, which should make you question it. Unfortunately, www-homepage.com does not provide any official information about itself, which is another reason to delete it from your browsers.
Reliable search tools always provide information about themselves. For example, if you moved to the bottom of google.com, you would find links to Privacy and Terms documents. Www-homepage.com does not provide these documents, which means that this search tool is unreliable. Unfortunately, this search tool leads users to the Google Custom Search, which tricks many users into trusting it. Note that the name "Google" is only used to gain your trust, and the search results are unreliable, considering that many of them show sponsored ads. This deceptive behavior is the final reason to remove www-homepage.com.
Whether or not www-homepage.com was installed with or without permission, you need to delete this suspicious search tool from your browsers as soon as possible. We have created a removal guide that should help you replace www-homepage.com with the preferred search tools in Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer browsers. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that this will be enough to eliminate this potential threat completely. For this reason, we also recommend installing a security tool that, if necessary, will delete www-homepage.com leftovers. Even if you manage to delete this suspicious search tool yourself, make sure you install a legitimate search tool to protect you from malware in the future.
