If you have already had Ratarvis.info “Virus” installed on your iPhone, then you know how annoying and obstructive it can be. This potentially unwanted application is from the Browser Hijacker category – a type of software, notorious for its tendency to display intrusive and obstructive popups and banners on the device’s screen and also trigger browser redirects to random websites that the user did not want to visit. The idea behind all this is to earn money through online advertising. However, obviously the method used by such Browser Hijackers can oftentimes be considered aggressive and also, in some instances, applications such as Ratarvis.info “Virus” could also represent potential security hazards. Therefore, here we will help our readers, who have had the unpleasant software installed on their devices, remove it so that it no longer bothers them.
Browser Hijackers and software viruses
Something that needs to be clarified regarding Browser Hijackers is that they are not actual viruses. Even though sometimes you might see people referring to them as malware, this does not mean that a Browser Hijacker is the same as, for example, a malicious Trojan horse or nasty Ransomware virus. Most Hijackers are not actually capable of causing any actual damage to one’s device. Still, one must remain careful when an application such as Ratarvis.info “Virus” is on their device since, as was already noted above, Hijackers can still contain potential security risks. Our advice for all our readers that have the unpleasant software on their iPhones is to avoid tapping on any of the nagging banners and avoid interacting with the contents of the sites they get redirected to. There is just no need to take any unnecessary risks. Besides, keep in mind that the only truly effective way to stop the banners and page redirects is to get rid of the application that causes them.
Most people do not realize when or how Browser Hijackers get installed on their Apple smartphones. The reason for this is the method that most Hijacker developers use so as to spread their products. In the majority of cases, the undesirable software is bundled with another app and gets installed along with it. The only way to avoid this is to simple try and discern applications that could potentially contain Browser Hijackers. A good piece of advice would be to only use the App Store and avoid third-party sources. However, it is also advisable to look up new apps that you want to install even if they are from the App Store. Do that and the chances of you landing a Browser Hijacker will be drastically decreased.
