However, if after reading it you will still have questions about the application, we will be happy to help you answer them if you just leave a question below the text.

Where does come from?

Just like other browser hijackers, might travel with unreliable software. Thus, if you do not even know how it appeared on your system the chances are you could have accidentally installed it with a recently downloaded program. In which case, we highly recommend checking all the applications that were acquired newly. Needless to say, if any of them appear to be potentially dangerous it would be best to remove them at once. To avoid threats in the future, you should try to be more cautious when downloading software developed by unknown creators, advertised on questionable advertisements, or offered on untrustworthy file-sharing web pages.

How does work?

The main and the most annoying browser hijacker’s quality is changing user’s browser preferences, such as his homepage. It means the affected browser may start loading instead of the website you picked yourself. Naturally, this might irritate anyone who prefers having a specific web page as their start page. We also learned the software could show users advertising content because in its End User License Agreement documents the developers claim: “During your use of Stormygreatz and browsing of the Thank You Page, we may present you with third party advertisements.” Keep in in mind the tool’s developers take no responsibility for the content the provided ads might promote. It means this possibly annoying advertising content could be potentially dangerous too since there could be no reassurances it cannot originate from malicious web pages. Given these risks, we advise users not to take any chances with this application, especially if you did not want it in the first place.
