Newpage16.site – Delivery Methods

The Newpage16.site redirect could utilize multiple delivery methods. Third-party installations of freeware and bundled applications are prime examples of such a method. Typically, these applications are video converters, download clients, and media players. Their installation setups can be set by default to put more components on your computer machine. While you are unaware of that, the setup installs the mentioned components. That results in the hijacker changing your browser settings. To prevent unwanted programs to install additional content on your PC you should find Custom or Advanced options.

Various methods for delivery might involve a plugin, an add-on, or an extension placed inside your browser programs. Banners, pop-ups, pop-unders or similar advert types that are hosted on websites could be used as a different delivery method. The hijacker can spread redirect links for delivering itself too, while generating them around more websites. The websites might be partnered up or in an affiliation with Newpage16.site. The following browsers could be affected: Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari and Mozilla Firefox.

Newpage16.site – Detailed Description

Newpage16.site can both redirect you and hijack your browser applications. Thus, it is considered a browser hijacker. The hijacker uses the same name as its main Web page, and namely, that is New Page 16. This hijacker will replace the default search engine, homepage, and new tab window, plus other settings in all of your browsers.

You can see the main page shown below:

stf-newpage16-site-newpage-16-new-page-browser-hijacker-redirect-main-domain

The Newpage16.site web page is comprised of the following: a plain, blue background, a search bar, a logo, and some buttons. The buttons redirect to the main domains of famous social media sites and marketing platforms. A big banner with an advertisement inside is located under those buttons most of the time and can sometimes cover the whole page.

In the snapshot beneath this paragraph, you can see the page shows the search results of Newpage16.site. You will get redirected to the legitimate search engine of Google. That is all a trick aimed at making you believe in the lie that you are using a service related to Google. You will see loads of advertisements and get redirected to other websites. The hijacking platform can collect any information you write in its search bar.

stf-newpage16-site-newpage-16-new-page-browser-hijacker-redirect-paul-walker-search-results

Every search that you do will be filtered by the Newpage16.site redirect. And as that information is collected, data about your interaction with advertisements, targeted content and clicks will also be acquired. So, be careful around this and similar platforms as this information will be stored on their servers and could be disclosed or sold to third parties.

Refrain from providing any information, especially if it’s personal, account credentials or banking data. Redirect links, which are mostly presented in the form of in-text ads, could be shown to you when you are browsing the Web. Browser cookies and other tracking technologies are used to gather all above mentioned information. Read on to find out what exactly can the Newpage16.site website collect from you.

The Privacy Policy of the Newpage16.site website is not present on the website or the pages you end up on through the redirect. That is not surprising as this is not a legitimate search engine, nor a reputable one. The policy might still exist, but the fact that it is hidden from the public cannot look anything but shady. However, the website uses cookies, and with a bit of research, this detail surfaced:

stf-newpage16-site-newpage-16-new-page-browser-hijacker-redirect-cookies-2291-expiration-date

The expiration date of one of the cookies is set to the year 2291, which is around 275 years from now. That is both silly and shocking at the same time. As the site is using cookies for the purposes of tracking you and your interests, the probability of it using similar technologies is very high. Even only by the utilization of cookies, lots of information can be gathered from you.

The information, which could be gathered, can be technical or include personally identifying pieces of data, such as your location and addresses (IP, Email, geographical), among other ones. Whatever you input into the Newpage16.site Web page, you can be sure that it is collected and that can also be your name, telephone number, banking credentials and various related details. That is why you should be very careful with your interactions with the website.

Most of the other technologies that can be used besides cookies are not as intrusive as much because they mostly get technical information. These technologies are pixel tags, clear GIFs, Web beacons and the like. Thus, be aware of all that information when you come in interaction with any website similar to this one or of an unknown origin. Additionally, if you are redirected to other sites from this one, they will undoubtedly track you in some way, as well. Be careful with your online activity.
