Home.managementtube.com is a fake search engine and a browser hijacker[1] that should not be trusted. The unwanted application usually enters users' machines using software bundling technique and inputs its URL into the homepage and default search provider settings into Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or another browser without your knowledge.

Besides providing search service, Home Managementtube also tracks the activity of its visitors. It does that with the help of tracking technologies such as cookies or web beacons[2]. However, considering that this search engine is closely associated with browser hijackers (potentially unwanted programs) the list of its capabilities might expand.

The fact that Home.managementtube.com redirect virus is on your system is a warning sign to you that says you must improve your computer’s protection immediately. This program targets to control user’s searches, swap organic search results with ads, and lure the victim into affiliate sites without checking their reliability first.

In other words, Managementtube simply wants to cause URL redirects but not to provide useful search services for the victim. Each successful redirect earns money for the developer of this shady browser hijacker.

However, you shouldn’t sacrifice and continue using a doubtful search tool just to continue making money for some suspicious company that fails to provide its name on its own search site.

There are even more reasons to remove Home.managementtube.com virus. The suspicious hijacker doesn’t inform the victim about program’s Privacy Policy and Terms of Use, leaving the victim without information about the functionality of the search engine and its data collection practices. Typically, browser hijackers collect the following information:

  • IP address;
  • ISP;
  • Sites visited;
  • Search queries;
  • Links/ads clicked;
  • Software information;
  • Hardware information, etc.

You can not know how this suspicious software uses your browsing related data or if it collects personally identifiable information. To protect such data from falling into the wrong hands, we recommend you to remove Home.managementtube.com as soon as it is possible. You might want to use FortectIntego for that.

Ways to stop viruses from hijacking browser settings

Programs that meddle with browser settings are extremely annoying. For this reason, we highly recommend taking all possible measures to prevent their installation. In the majority of cases, these programs travel in a bundle with free software that you can download from many file sharing sites.

You might receive a suggestion to change your search settings after opening an installer of a game, download manager, file converter or video downloader. Such programs are easy to use, and many of them are free – such features attract computer users instantly.

Sadly, the installers of such programs can contain statements suggesting to install software that wouldn’t normally come with the selected software.

If you received such suggestion, do not be tempted to install the advertised apps – they can work as adware or browser hijackers. If you do install them, the developer of the main app gets money. For more tips on how to avoid browser hijackers, visit NoVirus.uk site[3].

How to prevent from getting stealing programs

Stream videos without limitations, no matter where you are

There are multiple parties that could find out almost anything about you by checking your online activity. While this is highly unlikely, advertisers and tech companies are constantly tracking you online. The first step to privacy should be a secure browser that focuses on tracker reduction to a minimum.

Even if you employ a secure browser, you will not be able to access websites that are restricted due to local government laws or other reasons. In other words, you may not be able to stream Disney+ or US-based Netflix in some countries. To bypass these restrictions, you can employ a powerful Private Internet Access VPN, which provides dedicated servers for torrenting and streaming, not slowing you down in the process.

Data backups are important – recover your lost files

Ransomware is one of the biggest threats to personal data. Once it is executed on a machine, it launches a sophisticated encryption algorithm that locks all your files, although it does not destroy them. The most common misconception is that anti-malware software can return files to their previous states. This is not true, however, and data remains locked after the malicious payload is deleted.

While regular data backups are the only secure method to recover your files after a ransomware attack, tools such as Data Recovery Pro can also be effective and restore at least some of your lost data.
