Notifpushnext Virus

Notifpushnext

Notifpushnext is an aggressive page-redirecting hijacker that targets Android systems and affects the behavior of their browsers. Notifpushnext can cause sudden automatic redirects in the browser, collect data from the device, and display obstructive ads and pop-ups even when the browser app is closed.

Notifpushnext

Many users have complained from the aggressive behavior of this browser hijacker for Android devices, iPhones and iPads, worried that it could be a serious malware infection caused by a Trojan, a Spyware, or a Ransomware virus. The good news is that Notifpushnext does not belong to any of those malware categories – as we said, it is classified as a browser hijacker, meaning its main goal is to generate revenue from paid ads and site-redirects. However, it still remains important to remove it from your device because the content advertised by it may often be unsafe and hazardous.

One additional problem with rogue apps of this kind is that they tend to gain lots of different permissions in the infected devices – they may have access to information about your location, OS version, installed apps, browsing history, and more. Such data is mostly used for more effective and efficient targeted advertising, but it’s also perfectly possible that your information may get sold and resold and eventually fall into the hands of third-parties with more nefarious goals. Again, removing the hijacker is the best option you have and, fortunately, this shouldn’t be too difficult to achieve.

Down below, you will find a removal guide for Notifpushnext that we advise you to complete in order to delete this hijacker from your Android device. We also strongly recommend that you try to limit the sources that you use for downloading new apps to only the official Android/Google Play App Store – rogue apps almost never make their way into it, so you are very unlikely to get another hijacker if you download your new apps only from there.

Step3

Restart your Browser. It might be a good idea to Reboot your Android device, just in case.

  • Important!

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.
