Notice Fixer Site
Notice Fixer Site is an iPhone browse-hijacking app that is prone to causing sudden page redirects in your Safari browser to sites you don’t want to visit. Notice Fixer Site typically gets installed alongside other applications and then secretly starts to trigger page redirects in the browser.
Oftentimes, users get confused as to what is causing the browser page redirects or the intrusive pop-ups and banners that such hijackers are also known for. If you are in this same situation and are worried that your Apple device may have been attacked by some serious threat such as a Trojan or Ransomware virus, know that this is probably not the case. Notice Fixer Site is nowhere near as dangerous as the aforementioned types of malware. It is simply an irritating app that is programmed to advertise stuff on the screens of iPhone users. Of course, this doesn’t make its presence on the device any more bearable, which is why we will help you uninstall it.
It may be a bit tricky to find this app on your device because many hijackers like Notice Fixer Site are distributed as built-in parts of other applications. Nevertheless, the actual removal of the hijacker shouldn’t be difficult if you follow the instructions below. Just remember that it is still important for your device’s safety to remove the hijacker as soon as possible because, even though it isn’t a harmful app in and of itself, the ads and the sites it may promote on your screen may sometimes be potentially unsafe and maybe even land lead you to online locations hosted by hackers and used for spreading Trojan horse viruses, spyware apps, and Ransomware.
Remove Notice Fixer Site Virus
if you have an iPhone virus, continue with the guide below.
If you have an Android virus, please use our Android Malware 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.
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.
