Check Message Live
Check Message Live is a browser hijacker program that specifically targets Android device users. Check Message Live integrates with the main browser installed on the device in question and then begins to spam it with various online ads.
Hence, one of the first symptoms of an infection with something like Check Message Live is the stream of popups, banners and in-text links that begins to accompany your every browsing session. Furthermore, page redirects to different web locations that seem to take place completely out of the blue are another very common symptom. And if that weren’t enough, Check Message Live may have very likely also changed the default search engine to some unfamiliar one, and it may have even replaced your regular browser homepage.
The Check-message.live Virus
The Check-message.live Virus is doing all of this in the name of promoting certain products and services, or even just for the purpose of driving more traffic to certain websites. And, in turn, the developers of browser hijackers like Check-message.live earn commission from the clicks or views that these ads and websites receive. Usually, software of this type is built around remuneration systems like Pay Per Click.
This also goes to say that contrary to what you might read elsewhere, Check Message Live is actually not a virus or some malicious program. Unlike Trojans, ransomware and other viruses, browser hijackers cannot actually harm your device.
If you’re wondering what chances you have of removing all these unnecessary effects from within your browser, your only chance of accomplishing this is by removing Check Message Live. Below we have put together a set of instructions that will walk you through the removal process.
