Have you noticed some rather suspicious changes to some of your browser settings on your android device? Do they include a change in your browser’s homepage and/or search engine, perhaps even the random appearance of various ads and uncalled for page redirects? These are all likely symptoms of Maxonclick, which you can especially become sure of if you see the name written on most or many of the displayed popups, box messages and banners. This is an adware you’re dealing with, but there’s nothing to worry about. We’ve fixed up a removal guide, which will help you effectively rid yourself of the invasive ads and remove Maxonclick once and for all.

What Maxonclick “Virus” is really all about

Actually, Maxonclick is not really a virus. This kind of software is actually and effective advertising tool and that is more or less what its sole purpose boils down to. It is developed with the aim of distributing large quantities of ads, mostly those that have been determined to be potentially of interest to the separate user. You see, the more times you interact with the ads that have been produced/powered by Maxonclick, the more money the developers make. Therefore they strive to acquire as much information regarding your potential interests and browsing habits, so as to show you only those ads that would be more likely to attract your attention. This is done when the adware monitors your search queries and other relevant data and then analyzes this information, so as to adjust the ads accordingly. To many users this behavior seems rather suspicious and many experts even classify Maxonclick and others of this kind as PUP’s or potentially unwanted programs.

Not only is the information collecting practice unsettling, but also the possibilities of being exposed to serious harms like viruses through the displayed adverts. It could happen to certain hackers with malicious intentions would tamper with a given ad and convert it to a malvertisement by injecting it with some horrible malware like ransomware, for example. For this reason we highly recommend avoiding any and all contact with the numerous adverts you see and simply proceed to removing the hijacker with the guide provided below this article. There’s simply no way of telling a legitimate ad from a corrupted one simply by looking at it. It’s not worth taking the risk of getting your device infected with a virus that could potentially prove devastating.
