This is outright absurd. The program has been classified as a browser hijacker, which means that the settings on your browser will be changed once the add-on has been installed on your computer. The changes can be made on Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome. Such programs are considered to be unwanted as they are a potential risk for the system’s security.

Well, it is a “yes” and a “no.” EasyMailLogin itself is not malicious. However, as we mentioned it will show numerous advertisements.
