Yourniceposts is a browser hijacking application that may prevent you from using your default web browser normally. For instance, Yourniceposts may alter the homepage and the search engine and may cause browsing interruptions by displaying hard-to-remove ads, pop-ups and banners on your screen.
Apps like this one are not identical to computer viruses and lack the harmfulness that is typical for Ransomware, Trojans and other malware. However, many users consider them as unwanted and seek ways to successfully uninstall them from their system.
Usually, browser hijackers such as Yourniceposts, Suftoajachi and Agafurretor can get attached to different web browsers without the users’ consent. Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and Safari become usual targets, as these are the most common browsers. However, other browsing apps may also be hijacked without a second notice.
And when the hijacker joins the browsing application, a new search engine will typically be introduced and a new homepage or a new tab page may greet the user from the screen. These browser changes are typically accompanied by a stream of aggressive pop-up ads, banner notifications, redirect links and click prompts that promote different services, products and programs. The final result of the hijacking is that the affected browser becomes an ad-generating tool that displays sponsored advertisements and promotional links that redirect users to specific websites.
Apps like Yourniceposts seeks to take over as many web browsers as possible through the above-mentioned changes in order to be able to generate income for their developers from remuneration models such as Pay-Per-Click and Pay-Per-View.
In general, nothing that the browser hijackers can do will damage your computer or affect it in a serious way. Your data, your online accounts and your software won’t be destroyed or corrupted if you have an app like Yourniceposts inside your system. Nevertheless, keeping a hijacker on the machine you are using may potentially lead to a close encounter with various security hazards, including Ransomware, Trojans, Spyware and other viruses. Furthermore, it may be rather unbearable to constantly deal with the discomfort arising from the unstoppable ads and the search engine, homepage and toolbar modifications that such applications may impose. That is why most of the users who have a program like Yourniceposts in their browsers prefer to simply remove it and uninstall all of its changes from their browser.
How you actually got Yourniceposts?
Yourniceposts is a very recent piece of software that typically gets distributed as a free app or browser component along with other free software and attractive program bundles. You may not recall downloading this software yourself because browser hijackers like this one are typically “hidden” in other software installer archives.
We say “hidden” because some browser hijackers are likely to be introduced as bonus components which may not be clearly disclosed in the setup packages of the programs you want to install. In most cases, they are only visible in the Custom/Advanced Configuration Settings of the installer. However, most people never (if ever) click these settings and this is how they indirectly allow apps like Yourniceposts to get installed along with the main software without knowing it.
Uninstalling a browser hijacker, however, may become a hassle if you don’t know how to properly remove it. Thus, it is recommended that you follow specific steps (such as those that you will find in the removal guide below) or simply use a professional removal tool that can clean your system.
