removal by Linas Kiguolis - - | Type: Browser Hijackers

Feed.game-jungle.com is a browser hijacker that changes the settings of the way browsers operate

Feed.game-jungle.com

Feed.game-jungle.com is a potentially unwanted application[1] that is usually installed together with shareware or freeware apps or is downloaded in the form of a browser extension Game Jungle. Upon infiltration, the PUP alters the settings of Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, or any other browser that is installed on Windows or Mac operating systems. The modifications include the newly assigned search engine, a new tab address, as well as the homepage address, which is set to hxxp://feed.game-jungle.com.

From that point, users are forced to browse via the hijacked engine, which might look like Yahoo! – a legitimate web browsing service. However, this is a modified version, which means that every search query is scrutinized by personalized filters that are installed together with Feed.game-jungle.com virus. 

While Feed.game-jungle.com is present, users might also be redirected to suspicious websites, see an increased amount of ads on various sites that they visit, notice a slower operation of the browser, adding bookmarks, and notice similar shady activity. To stop it, users should remove Feed.game-jungle.com browser hijacker from their machines ASAP.

Installation Via software bundles or third-party sites
Risk factors Installation of bogus software, money loss, malware infections
Termination Use our manual guide below or scan your computer with security software

Browser hijackers like Feed.game-jungle.com are not considered to be malware, as users can often install such apps via official sites or even Google stores. Nevertheless, you should be worried about your web browsing experience once you have a PUP installed, as it can and most likely will:

  • Display sponsored links at the top of search results. This warrants parties who paid for the place to be put up there. This means that not only will your activities be manipulated, but might be completely inadequate.
  • Collect information about your browsing habits with the help of tracking tools like web beacons[2] and cookies. While most of this data is anonymous, it discloses your hobbies, likes and dislikes, political views, etc.

Besides, Feed.game-jungle.com developer Oath Search, which is an affiliate of Yahoo, states in its Privacy Policy, that the aggregated information about your interests can be shared with third-parties:

We may share your search query, IP address, and other depersonalized information from your web browser or app, such as a unique identifier for your web browser, with these search partners.

These third party providers may use this information, as well as your search results clicks, to provide more relevant advertising and search results, for search product improvement, research and analysis, and to help detect and defend against fraudulent activity on sponsored or contextual search results.

Finally, if not being careful, Feed.game-jungle.com might bring you to scam, phishing, spoofing,[3] and similar sites. This might result in additional PUP installation, money loss for fake services or even malware infections.

Therefore, remove Feed.game-jungle.com hijack by terminating the unwanted application manually or by using security software. To keep your system in shape, we recommend using Reimage.

Feed.game-jungle.com PUP
Feed.game-jungle.com is a browser hijacker that displays users a variety of sponsored search results and alters which websites the infected users visit

Be aware that bad freeware installation habits can result in PUP or even malware infections

Without a doubt, shady software bundling tactics are unfair. The improper practice has been around for many years, and even legitimate, and highly influential parties use it. However, some are better, and some are worse. In most cases, when users are dealing with an installer from a suspicious website, the included software might be hidden very well from the eyes of regular users – misleading buttons, grayed out text, small print, pre-ticked boxes, etc. That being said, most reputable companies will not play tricks with you and clearly state what you are about to install.

Despite all this, it is the user's responsibility to make sure that no unwanted applications enter. Therefore, never rush the installation process of new programs, always check for the tricks we mentioned above, decline all the offers or deals, and always opt for Advanced/Custom mode which would allow you to take control over the installation procedure.

Terminate Game Jungle and Feed.game-jungle.com hijack

To remove Feed.game-jungle.com, you will have to uninstall all the apps that are associated with the hijack, such as Game Jungle. However, be aware that other applications might be connected to it as well. Nevertheless, if you want to practice this manual method, you should check our instructions below, we explain how to do that step-by-step.

However, you can also complete automatic Feed.game-jungle.com removal with the help of security software that specializes in PUPs. This option is recommended for less experienced computer users, as well as those who did click on a variety of links or installed some suspicious apps recently.
