What do browser hijackers really do?
Browser hijackers are all about generating numerous banners, popups, in-text links and various other online ads directly on the screens of users’ iPhones and iPads. The point of it all essentially just boils down to profit. On the one hand, it’s profit for the vendors of the many products and services being advertising. On the other, the developers of programs like iPad Virus Warning receive revenue based on the number of taps the affected users have made on those ads. This is possible thanks to remuneration models like the Pay Per Click scheme.
It is also thanks to this very system that hijackers can often look into the user’s browsing history and extract certain information from it. That way the browser hijacker, be it iPad Virus Warning or another one can, determine which of its ads will be more likely to interest you and it can start exposing you to them, instead of just some random ones. As this is a privacy violation, many consider hijackers to be PUP’s. But there’s also the fact that they may expose you to greater security risks, such as malware like Trojan horse viruses and ransomware. You can happen to come across an ad that’s been compromised by hackers and is used as a transmitter for one of those programs and you will have no way of telling it apart from any of the other ads.
After you have successfully gotten rid of iPad Virus Warning, you might want to avoid having to do with programs like it in the future. You can do that simply by sticking to the App Store and researching the apps you’re interested in before actually installing them. That way you will know if there is a hijackers integrated in them or not.
