Annoying ads, pop-ups and banners as well as random page redirects and replaced browser components such as your browser’s default starting page and search engine are all things that you are likely to experience if Lastcallislam “Virus” gets installed on your Android smartphone or tablet. Lastcallislam “Virus” is a browser hijacker software component meaning that its main purpose is to get integrated with your device’s browser (the default browsing app, Chrome, Opera, Firefox or any other) and mess with its settings as well as expose you to irritating advertising materials. Aside from being really irritating, such activities could also compromise the security and the safety of your device. What we mean by that is if you accidentally tap on some unsafe banner or interact with the contents of a page that Lastcallislam “Virus” might have redirected you to, you might get your device exposed to and infected by some really nasty malware threats the likes of Spyware viruses, Trojan Horses, Worms, Ransomware and so on. Such potential risks combined with the highly intrusive and obstructive behavior of the browser hijacker are more than enough of a reason for you to get rid of such a software component in case it has found its way inside your device’s system. Unfortunately, the developers of such hijackers tend to make the difficult to remove, especially if you don’t know what has brought the hijacker into your system. However, here we can show you how you might be able to locate the nagging software component inside your device and eliminate it with ease. Note that if you have Lastcallislam “Virus” on your Android device, then it has most likely gotten there with the help of some other app or an application update that you have recently installed. Since browser hijackers for Android are almost always built-in components to the app that carries them, this means that the carrier application would usually need to get uninstalled as well in order for the hijacker to get removed.
How to prevent future hijacker installation
There are two main rules that you need to implement in order to ensure that no more hijackers reach your system. The first one is to always make sure to only use reliable download sources for new apps that you want to install on your device. The second one is to research any app you want to download and see what other users have to say about it. Always remember and use those two tips and you should have no problems with browser hijackers in future.
