EasyOpenWeb.com – Delivery
EasyOpenWeb.com could be delivered in various ways. One of those ways is through third-party installations. Those installation setups come from bundled applications and freeware which can be set to install additional content by default on your computer. Often, that might occur without notification. You might have tried installing a media player or other free software and got your browser settings changed by this hijacker. To avoid unwanted programs like those from affecting your computer machine is possible. You just have to find Custom or Advanced settings. There you should be able to deselect content.
EasyOpenWeb.com could be delivered with other methods, too. These methods often use an add-on or a browser extension which installs on your browser software. Other delivery ways use advertisements, such as banners, pop-ups, pop-unders, and redirect links. Sponsored advertisement, plus targeted content on dubious websites could deliver the hijacker, as well. These websites might also be partners or affiliates of the EasyOpenWeb.com service. The following browsers could be affected: Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Safari.
EasyOpenWeb.com – Information
EasyOpenWeb.com is the primary web address and search engine of a browser hijacker that has the same name – EasyOpenWeb. You will be redirected immediately from its search results and the links and content that are positioned on the main page. That exact main page can be viewed from the screenshot here below:
The EasyOpenWeb.com browser hijacker will redirect you from every single advertisement and sponsored content hosted on its pages.

Take note that every search query that you make will be sending information to the servers related to this EasyOpenWeb.com hijacker.

The photo that you can see under this paragraph displays the results of an example search query that went through the EasyOpenWeb.com search engine. These search results show Google as the service of the hijacker and probably tries to trick everybody that they are somehow affiliated.

The website tries to push lots of advertisements and redirects which eventually drop browser cookies on your computer device, and they can track you and your online activity. More advanced tracking technologies could have been used, as well. Be careful of the information you input in such search pages, especially on the ones associated with EasyOpenWeb.com. Refrain from clicking on suspicious advertisements and links that you know nothing about as they may gather information about you with ease.
The following information will be collected:
- URL address
