Although Apple products are less susceptible to getting invaded by unwanted or hazardous software, this doesn’t mean you cannot get some invasive app such as a browser hijacker on your iPhone or iPad. Common symptoms related to such software annoyances are the generation of random banners on your screen, the replacement of the homepage of your browsers, as well as sudden page-redirects to sites that try to sell you something or get you to play some sham browser game. Of course, this could all lead to frustration and irritation while you are browsing, but this is actually the lesser problem with the hijackers. What’s worse about having a hijacker in your Safari, Chrome or Firefox, is that it may potentially land you on pages with shady content or even on ones used to spread Trojans, Spyware and other insidious viruses.
