Yourtv.link Removal Guide
What is Yourtv.link?
Yourtv.link is a browser hijacker that can infiltrate your system and modify your browser settings. It usually comes as a part of an ad-supported application. The website itself is an advertising platform. You cannot trust all commercials that you see on it. Once installed, Yourtv.link also changes your DNS settings and redirects you in the middle of your online surfing. It can infect all browsers that you are using including Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer and Google Chrome. Since the hijacker not only causes unnecessary distractions, but also exposes you to unreliable web content, we suggest that you remove Yourtv.link without hesitation.
How does Yourtv.link work?
The website that is now set as your home page contains various articles that may be of interest to you, if you follow TV news. The page also contains several ads that may or may not be reliable. It has a search box that uses Google custom search to present you with search results. These results are filled with sponsored content, so you should be careful with them. Trusting commercial ads is not a good idea, because they may be unreliable. If you click on a fake ad, you may land on a corrupted page and infect your PC with malware.
You will see advertisements on all sites that you visit. You will also get redirected to unknown pages. The hijacker tracks your cookies, which means that it collects information about your online behavior. This information is used to customize the ads that it shows you. That is why some of them may look especially relevant. Nevertheless, you must remember that you click on the advertisements at your own risk, because the application does not endorse any of them. If you do not wish to expose your system to any unnecessary online threats, we advise that you delete Yourtv.link from your PC.
