Though Browser Hijackers are more frequently encountered on PC’s, nowadays there are also a lot of applications that fall under this category and are targeted at Android devices. One such piece of software is Lamorpon.info. A lot of users have reported that it has gotten on their smartphone or tablet and has started to mess with it. The most common complaints are unpleasant page browser page redirects caused by the Hijacker as well as screen-wide banners generated by it that make it nearly impossible to use the device without tapping on them.
Most of the time, applications like this one are not used maliciously. They are not to be confused with actual harmful viruses like Trojans or Ransomware.

However, it is important to keep in mind that this is still something unwanted and unpleasant. Additionally, though the Hijacker on its own is probably not dangerous for your virtual security, it might still open your device’s system to more hazardous threats. That is why we strongly recommend that you make use of our Lamorpon.info uninstall and removal guide which is right below this article if the unpleasant piece of software has already been installed on your device.
How to keep Hijackers away from your smartphone/tablet?
In contrast to their PC counterparts, there aren’t really that many methods via which a Hijacker can get installed onto your Android device. Most commonly, Android Hijackers are implemented within some other app and are an integral part of the application. This means that if one is to get rid of Lamorpon.info “Virus”, they’d first need to remove the application with which it has been bundled.
Our advice for you to help you keep your device clean of any Hijackers is to always take a few moments to look up the app you are about to install on it. Usually, using the Google Store provides some added safety as opposed to downloading software from third-parties but note that even the Store can and oftentimes is compromised and shady apps might get on it as well.
