Is a browser hijacker a threat to one’s system?
Browser hijackers are, basically, programs that can take over your web browser’s settings. Such programs are developed for the purpose of online advertising and they typically integrate with your default browser and introduce all the above-mentioned changes (such as the changed homepage and so on) with the intention of promoting different websites, products, and services on your monitor. As soon as a program like Go.pardot.com gets installed in your system, you will almost immediately notice an increase of the online ads in your browser that come in the form of pop-ups, pop-unders, banners, text messages, and redirect links and get shown all over the screen. These are (mostly) paid ads that generate revenue for the browser hijacker developers on a pay-per-click or pay-per-view basis. The more you click on them, the greater is the profit for the people who own the browser hijacker that displays them.
In theory, there is nothing wrong or harmful to this software and its ads. Yet, many web users fear that programs like Go.pardot.com might be harmful and typically call them “redirect viruses”. The reason is, most browser hijackers tend to be quite aggressive in their attempts to get you to click on their paid ads and tend to employ some invasive online advertising tactics to reach their goal. For instance, they can introduce some undesired changes not only to your browser’s settings but also to some of the OS’ settings. Such changes can help programs like Go.pardot.com to show more ads, monitor your web browsing activity and automatically redirect you to specifics sites but, at the same time, they may render your machine more susceptible to external threats such as viruses or malware like Ransomware and Trojans, especially when being constantly routed to random web locations. This is certainly something to take into consideration when you decide whether to keep software such as Go.pardot.com on your system or to uninstall it. But if you don’t want to risk a close encounter with a Ransomware, a Spyware, or another virus, our general security advice is to remove any application that does not provide you with a useful service and that could potentially expose you to security hazards. So, if you decide to remove Go.pardot.com from your computer, make sure you check out the removal guide below or simply scan your system with the attached professional removal tool.
