Do you know what Exlee.com is?

Exlee.com is identical to binkiland.com, cassiopesa.com, and several other hijackers. According to our research, this search provider shares the same IP address with these sites, as well as aqualious.com and joomborio.com. Needless to say, it is obvious that this search tool is part of a group of hijackers that are likely to be controlled by the same party. The good news is that you will not need to deal with all of them at the same time. These hijackers are spread separately, but they are most likely to be bundled with software. Whether or not this software is malicious depends on the installer used for the distribution. Unfortunately, as our researchers have found, malicious installers are used for the distribution of this devious threat. You need to beware of Trojans, ransomware infections, adware, and other kinds of threats that unreliable installers could introduce you to. Note that malware could be concealed and it could be downloaded silently. Are you sure that malware does not exist? Even if you are, quickly scan your operating system with a trusted malware scanner to be 100% sure.

Have you found a suspicious browser installed along with Exlee.com? A Chromium-based browser could be installed along with this hijacker, and it could set itself as the default browser without your permission. Although this app might remind you of Google Chrome, which, at the moment, is the most popular web browser in the world, it is not reliable because it can be used to showcase sponsored links and ads. If you enter keywords into the www.Exlee.com search box (set as homepage), you will be introduced to more ads than regular search results, and this is one of the reasons why removing this hijacker is important. Did you know that the offers/ads represented by this hijacker might be based on your own search activity? This hijacker can spy on you and collect data, and this could be used to pick or even create personalized offers. Does that mean that this search tool provides reliable services? Unfortunately, it does not. Unreliable advertisers could easily use the hijacker to expose you to misleadingly attractive offers concealing virtual scams and even malware installers. Obviously, we do not recommend interacting with these ads.

How to delete Exlee.com

Exlee.com is not a search tool you can trust, and removing it is crucial. Our recommendation is to employ anti-malware software to clean your operating system because, as we have discussed already, this hijacker is most likely to enter your operating system bundled with other potentially dangerous threats. Sure, you might be able to erase all unwanted programs from your operating system manually, but if you are not experienced, this task might be extremely difficult to you, if not impossible. If you have set your mind on erasing active threats manually, start by removing Exlee.com. In fact, the elimination of this hijacker is extremely easy, and you should have no trouble resetting your browsers (or changing settings, if you use Microsoft Edge). We advise resetting because you also want to eliminate cookies responsible for spying.
