What is browser hijacker?

Browser hijacker is a malicious program, usually a web browser plug-in or add-ons, which modifies web browser settings in order to change default search page, home page, new tab or error page. After that, it starts unwanted redirects to undesirable Internet sites.

Practically all browser hijackers are created for commercial, advertising or marketing purposes.
