Joaglouwulin is a type of software known as a browser hijacker that infiltrates Android devices and causes aggressive ads and page-redirects to appear on their screens. Joaglouwulin can also collect data from your browsers and sell it to online advertisers.
This is a type of software that, while not particularly dangerous on its own, can be very unpleasant to have on your device and may eventually expose the device to different types of danger. It is inadvisable to tolerate the presence of browser hijackers like Joaglouwulin – if this or any other similar app is currently on your smartphone or tablet, you must take adequate measures to delete the unwanted software.
The goal of Joaglouwulin, Pushnott and other similar apps is to make money for their creators by showing you Pay-Per-Click (tap) ads and triggering Pay-Per-View browser page-redirects. By doing this, the hijacker generates revenue for its developers since the owners of the promoted sites/products pay commissions to have their content advertised.
In addition to being irritating, these activities of browser hijacker software could also put your device at risk. The content that hijackers try to popularize isn’t always safe – before you know it, you may end up on phishing web-pages or even sites that are designed to infect their visitors with Trojans, Spyware, or Ransomware. Obviously, it’s not a good thing to have a browser hijacker, even if the app itself cannot directly harm your device.
If you need help removing Joaglouwulin, we recommend following the steps shown in the removal guide below. Also, to stay safe in the future, we suggest using only reputable application stores to download new apps and installing only apps from trusted and well-known developers.

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.
