Nglypartime is a hijacker app for iOS devices that targets the Safari or Chrome browser of the device and causes unexpected page redirects in it. Nglypartime also causes the generation of screen-wide banners and misleading popup ads that also redirect the user to promoted sites.
Although there are far fewer browser hijackers like Nglypartime, Reducation.club, Kuwaited for iPhones and iPads compared to the hijackers available for Android devices, the number of these apps for iOS is currently steadily growing and it wouldn’t be surprising if you’ve come here because you’ve noticed that Nglypartime has gotten installed on your iPhone. If that’s your current case, then you should know that even though this potentially unwanted app will probably not cause any direct harm to your smartphone, it is still advisable that you remove it due to the indirect issues that it may cause.
The main problems with any app of this type are the uncontrolled generation of advertising materials and the wide range of permissions that most hijackers gain on the devices they get installed on. The combination of those two factors could potentially lead to the exposure of your device to much more dangerous forms of unwanted software, including threats such as Trojans, Spyware, or Ransomware viruses.
Luckily, dealing with a hijacker, while a bit tricky at times, should typically not be too difficult. Still, if you are struggling to uninstall Nglypartime, the guide you will find in the next lines will show you how you can remove this app in order to prevent it from further obstructing you with its aggressive page redirects and ads.
|Danger Level||Medium (nowhere near threats like Ransomware, but still a security risk)|
|Symptoms||Hijackers for iPhone devices can cause obstructive generation of screen-wide banners, sudden browser page redirects, and system slowdowns.|
|Distribution Method||The main method for spreading this type of unwanted software is adding it to another app that users are more likely to install.|

To remove Nglypartime.club Calendar Virus quickly you can try this:
1. Go to Settings on your iPhone/iPad.
2. Open Passwords and Accounts.
3. Then go to Subscribed Calendars.
4. Look for Nglypartime.club or anything that looks suspicious and delete it.
First you need to close all pop-ups that are currently open.
- If the pop-up has a checkbox named “Don’t show more alerts from this webpage” click on the checkbox before closing the Ad.
- If a Block Alerts button happens to appear after you shut down a pop-up on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch tab that button to stop receiving alerts from the same page.
In case that a pop-up fails to close after performing the above operations:
- On your Mac you should make your Safari browser close forcibly by pressing Command-Option-Esc. Select Safari from the list of Apps and force close it. After you force close it you need to restart Safari, but please hold the shift button while it starts. This will prevent any pesky Ads from opening automatically.
- On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch you can do the same by pressing the home button twice in a quick succession. You’ll then see a preview of all apps that have been recently used. Swipe left to find Safari and then swipe up on the app’s preview to close it forcibly In order to prevent Safari from opening unwanted windows on startup go to Settings->Safari and Clear History, as well as Website Data. This will also clear your browser history and cookies so keep that in mind and export them if you want to keep them.
Choose Preferences from the Safari menu. Then do the following:
- Select the Security icon and then click on “Block pop-up windows“. This should stop many types of pop-ups from appearing.
- Next check on your homepage and the settings for the search engines. Adware likes messing with those. We can not provide more specific instructions for this, as you may be using many different browsers.
- Select the General icon and look at the Homepage field. It should either be empty or filled with the address of the Homepage you want.
- Follow up on the Search icon. Again it should be either the default search engine or any that you have set for yourself. Note that in some versions of Safari these settings are found in the General panel/
Open Safari and click on the Extensions button. Note that Adware use extensions almost exclusively to inject the pop-up Ads into your browser. Any extension on this list that you do not remember installing yourself is likely planted there by the Adware. Remove ALL extensions you are unfamiliar with.
