Therefore, you are strongly advised to be very cautious during the time Comumx.site “Virus” remains on your device so as to avoid any unnecessary complications.
Our advice for your device’s safety
The most common way via which Hijackers are being distributed to Android devices is with the help of other applications that seem to be okay at first sight. Usually, the Browser Hijacker is bundled within the said app as an integral part of it which means that in most cases, the only way to get rid of software like Comumx.site is to uninstall the app that has gotten it on your device in the first place. This also leads us to our advice for you which will help you avoid Browser Hijackers like this one in future: always look up applications that you are about to install even if you are downloading from the Google Store. There are a lot of examples when a compromised app has made its way inside the Store and has thus infected a lot of devices with the Hijacker. Therefore, always be careful and thoughtful when you are about to get a new application.
