Protection Fix Site

Protection Fix Site

Protection Fix Site is a browser hijacker for iPhone devices that redirects the user’s browsing and floods the screen with intrusive pop-ups and other advertising messages. Protection Fix Site can be installed on the device as a built-in component that’s been added to another app.

The Protection Fix Site Virus spam your calendar with events.

This type of file bundling is very commonly used for the distribution of potentially unwanted software of the browser hijacker family. No user would willingly install an app, the sole purpose of which is to spam the device’s browser with irritating advertisements and page redirects. However, if the hijacker is added to another app – one that looks more desirable and that offers the user some helpful features, then it is far more likely for people to get software like Protection Fix Site installed on their devices, oftentimes without even realizing it.

Once the hijacker gets installed, it starts to tamper with the search engine and the homepage of the device’s Chrome, Safari or other browser, seeking to change them and then use them for the generation of ads and page redirects. The main goal of this app is to generate income through the display of paid advertisements and through redirecting the user to sites that pay commission to get popularized. Here, techniques such as Pay-Per-View and Pay-Per-Click dictate the behavior of the hijacker, which is part of the reason why apps like Protection Fix Site tend to be so aggressive with their advertisements.

The worst part is that you can’t be sure if the content promoted by hijackers like Protection Fix Site is safe. For all you know, the sites that the unwanted app tries to redirect you to could be filled with dangerous Trojans, Ransomware viruses, or spyware infections. Therefore, it is always important to remove such apps from the device as quickly as possible, once you notice their presence there. Uninstallation instructions for Protection Fix Site can be found in the following removal guide – you are advised to use them if the hijacker is presently on your device.
