Thansendmaterial is a browser hijacker program that typically invades Android systems when users install application packages containing additional components. The aggressive ad generated and page-directing behavior of the program often is questioned by the users and even makes them believe that their smartphone or tablet has been infected with a virus.


The Thansendmaterial virus will display fake pop up messages.

When hundreds of ads, pop-ups, links, and banners are frequently displayed on your smartphone or tablet’s screen, it is likely that a browser hijacker type of a program, such as Thansendmaterial, could have been installed inside your Android system. In general, these programs are not malicious, nor can they damage your smart device like a Ransomware, or a Trojan Horse virus. Despite your attempts to close them, however, the ads they generate usually may not be removed from the screen. Clicking on the ‘X’ button can often lead you to various web locations and in addition to that, your default browser may undergo some homepage or search engine changes. Thankfully, you can easily be saved from the above disturbance with the help of the step by step instructions on how you can remove Thansendmaterial from your Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or any other browser.

Can Thansendmaterial harm your smartphone or tablet?

In contrast to real computer viruses, most browser hackers have no intentions of harming your smart device. Yet programs like Thansendmaterial may cause major disturbances of normal web navigation and may irritate users who try to use their portable devices to browse the web. In fact, you may have to spend a lot of time constantly trying to cope with hundreds of click prompts and automatic redirected if you don’t uninstall it.

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.
