If you opened your browser and suddenly your new tab redirects you to Go-movix.com, then you most definitely have a potentially unwanted program on your system. That’s not such a big deal, but if you care about your system’s security, it would be better to get rid of Go-movix.com and all the apps that are associated with it. As far as we know, Go-movix.com is directly associated with goMovix Start. This potentially unwanted program could enter your system accidentally, so when you get down to removing the unwanted apps, you should also restore all your browser settings, too.
So, what is Go-movix.com about? This website works as your default new tab page when you have the aforementioned app added to your Chrome browser. The website looks like your regular search homepage. It displays the local time and date at the top right corner, so it might be more convenient than squinting at the bottom right corner on your taskbar.
It also comes with a search bar that offers you to search the Web, Images, Videos, and News. There are also shortcut buttons below the search bar. The shortcut buttons lead to a variety of popular websites, including Instagram, Amazon, Facebook, YouTube, Yahoo, Twitter, and others. The first shortcut, however, leads you to search.go-movix.com. That’s the main website for the goMovix Start. You can get the idea of what the website is for by checking out the three embedded ads at the bottom of your screen, aiming to promote drama, adventure, and animation for you.
In a sense, Go-movix.com might look like a decent website that can improve your web search, especially if you are an avid movie watcher. However, we mustn’t forget a number of security issues that could possibly arise if the app associated with this website gets added to your browser accidentally. So, what’s the deal with the app?
If you think that your homepage gets changed to Go-movix.com without your permission, better think again. These apps get your permission to perform all these modifications, but you probably don’t notice that because you are too focused on something else. Multiple potentially unwanted programs get added to your system and to your browser because you are not attentive enough.
While it is possible to get goMovix Start from the official website or the Chrome Web Store, we believe that most of the time, the application comes bundled with freeware or through various redirects. Hence, your web browsing habits could be directly responsible for exposing you to Go-movix.com and other unwanted content.
For instance, if you visit websites that are full of ads and pop-ups, it is only a matter of time before your search settings get changed to Go-movix.com. And while this modification is not 100% malicious, let’s not forget that these apps often employ third-party content to maintain their audience. Also, Go-movix.com could collect information on your web browsing habits to promote custom commercial content to you. It might look like a good idea, but Go-movix.com cannot review all the links it promotes, and if someone exploits the website and the app to promote their corrupt content, you could be just a click away from severe malware infection.
Therefore, just because Go-movix.com looks like a good website, you shouldn’t keep it on your browser. To remove the website, you will have to delete the extension that modifies your browser’s settings. Sometimes, deleting the app alone may not be enough to terminate everything recorded and collected by it, so you should also consider resetting your browser.
We will provide the manual removal instructions at the bottom of this description, but it would also be a good idea to scan your system with the SpyHunter free scanner. This way, you will be able to see what kind of apps or settings should be changed or removed. The truth is that potentially unwanted programs may not always come alone. They tend to travel in packs. Hence, if you have the program associated with Go-movix.com on your system, it is very likely that there are more potentially unwanted apps installed, too.
When you remove all the unwanted programs, you should ensure that you do not install similar programs again. Hence, it would be the right time to review your web browsing habits and learn more about cybersecurity.
