Dorputolano is a tedious program that cannot be easily overlooked due to its ad-generating and page-directing activity. Usually, the software is mounted inside your mobile or tablet and fills the screen with hundreds of endorsed commercials, banners, ads, pop-ups, and click-prompts.
Besides that, Dorputolano normally makes some “improvements” to the homepage or the main browser’s search engine and begins to display sponsored search results if you attempt to navigate the Web through your android smart device. There is no big difference whether you use Chrome, Firefox, or another browsing app since this app can easily hijack them all.
Fortunately, Vgb Dorputolano is not a computer virus and has nothing to do with malware from the rank of Trojans or Ransomware. Vgb Dorputolano is one of the many android apps that sometimes hijack the browsers of users to advertise third-party goods and services on the screen of their smartphones and tablets.
That’s why, if hundreds of sponsored ads created by Dorputolano have recently taken over your android device, don’t get panicked. On this page, we will show you how to permanently remove these ads and how to uninstall their source safely.
What could Dorputolano do to your Android device?
Programs such as Dorputolano or Sehen Site are known to display numerous sponsored advertisements and pop-ups on the Android device and to redirect site visitors to some pre-determined pages. Sometimes, these apps may expose users to obscure web pages, aggressive pop-ups, and sketchy sites and let them engage with unknown third-party content when they use their smart device for quick on-the-go surfing. If this is what you are dealing with, then you have probably realized that it is not only a waste of time to try closing all these nagging messages, but also it can be quite risky.
The possibility of clicking on something deceptive or harmful is out of your control. This is why we generally encourage users who end up with apps like Dorputolano on their android mobile or tablet to remove them before they feel sorry.
Remove Dorputolano Malware
If you have an Android virus, continue with the guide below.
If you have an iPhone virus, please use our iPhone Virus Removal guide.
If you have a Mac virus, please use our How to remove Ads on Mac guide.
If you have a Windows virus, please use our Windows Virus Removal guide.
Whether you use the default “Internet” App for browsing or a different browser like Chrome you need to go to:
Locate the Browser/App in question and tap on it.
Now the method is effectively the same for users using both “Internet” and Chrome/Other Browsers, yet for more clarity we have provided instructions for both:
For “Internet” Browser Users:
Tap the Force Stop button.
Now tap the Clear Data and Clear Cache Buttons.
For Google Chrome Users:
Click on Force Stop.
Then click on Clear Data and Clear Cache.
Restart your Browser. It might be a good idea to Reboot your Android device, just in case.
If you are still seeing Ads in your browser, it is likely they are generated by the websites you visit and there is nothing you can do about it.
However, if you are seeing Adverts outside of your internet browser, then one of your installed Apps contains the problematic Adware. In this case you need to take a look at this guide.

Did not remove it from my Android. It pops up asking what to use to open links…it looks activating itself at intervals…
I tried all of this and it helped a little. But the actual issue is the barcode scanner app I had. An update had come through that does the mischief. This app needs uninstalling.
This is what happened to me. Lookout app identified it. It said it uninstalled it except for some file(s) but didn’t name it/them due to permissions. Maybe try uninstalling through Settings > Apps.
Thanks very much, Peter – same thing here!
Agree this was the same culprit for me.
i need a simple procedure to remove vbg.dorputolano from chrome browser on my Samsung Note G9
Hi Leon W,
did you try the removal guide on this page ?
Check to see if you have the Barcode Scan app, it seems to have this imbedded in newer versions
Used my Bar code scanner a day and a half ago then the problem POPPED Up. I disable my browser and errors were reported. I did the above steps and still no fix. I removed the applet “Barcode Scan app” which seems to have stopped it. It was very annoying.
For me, using a Pixel 3, it was NOT a browser, it was a barcode app. Once I deleted the barcode scanner app, it hasn’t happened since.
^^^What yup yupyup said I searched for a barcode app deleted it and all better. No idea how it got on my phone as I did not down load that app
The culprit is Barcode Scan app, remove it from the device and done. After removing from my device, it stopped showing those popups in browser now.
Thank You !!!
The problem might also be an app called “Barcode Scanner”. Uninstall it you likely don’t need it anyway I think the camera app has an automatic reader.
If you do you can download a different app as the infected app has been removed from the store.
Thank you all. Removed the recently installed barcode scanner and my phone is back to normal.
Same here. Removed the “Barcode Scanner” and all’s back to normal.
Same . It’s the “Barcode Scanner” that caused all that headache
Thank you sooooo much for this! I removed Bar Code Scanner….I have been researching this for over a week and was about to factory reset to get rid of it…Again thanks everyone!
