Awesomehp Browser Hijacker Removal Manual

Awesomehp is a search engine that security experts categorize as a browser hijacker. Awesomehp has similar behaviour as other redirects like Sweet Page, Qone8, V9 Redirect and Nation Zoom. This browser settings-changing adware usually slips into the user’s system unnoticed as it is bundled together with free of charge programs and software, such as PDF creators and download managers, downloaded on the Web. Once installed Awesomehp alters the settings of your current browser, redirecting your searches to Awesomehp.com. Although Awesomehp is not considered a high-level threat, it is important to notice that the search results, displayed on the site may not be verified and clicking on them may expose your PC to various infections.

Awesomehp – What Is Not So Awesome About It?

Along with the reconfiguration of your browser settings, Awesomehp may also display various annoying pop-up ads that may interfere with your browsing activities. The search engine automatically tracks the online activities of its users and collects non-personally identifiable data. According to the Privacy Policy of Awesomehp, the search engine may use cookies, web beacons or action tabs to provide the users with “personalized features and preferences” when using their search services.

The reliability of the search results the engine provides is also questionable since Awesomehp does not take responsibility for the content of the pages it redirects its users to. It is quite possible that you end up opening malicious websites and face serious security threats.

Browser Hijackers have been around for a while now, and cyber crooks have been using this method to generate traffic to their webpages, redirecting users to sites where they will collect a commission or revenue of a kind. Redirects like Vosteran.Com, Snap.Do or V9 Redirect, just to name a few, are compatible with the most-used browsers like Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer. Your regular Google, Bing or Yahoo searches will be hijacked from these potentially unsafe programs, and you will be presented with similar search results, which reliability is at least questionable. Although Awesomehp does not belong to the high-level threats segment, security experts strongly recommend its removal.
