Welcome to our Wehorier Android removal instructions. They should work on most Android devices.
In the event that your android smartphone or tablet has been infected with Wehorier, there’s little to no way of mistaking the symptoms. Your browser has probably become plagued with various ads by now and you might even have noticed certain changes to your usual settings. For example, the homepage might have been changed to an unfamiliar one and chances are the default search engine has also been replaced with a different one. These are all characteristic traits of a browser hijacker, which is the type of program that Wehorier belongs to. In the below removal guide you will find detailed instructions towards removing this nuisance from your device once and for all. But we recommend reading through the article first, instead of skipping to the removal guide directly, as some of the information here will prove useful in preventing potential infections in the future.
How it got on your system
This is probably the most important question and one that everyone asks automatically, as soon as they realize an browser hijacker infection has taken place. You most probably downloaded Wehorier within another app, which is likely distributed for free. Unfortunately, hijackers for portable devices are integrated within the separate apps, which makes it impossible to stop them from being installed alongside the main program, as you would do on a regular computer. Therefore it’s important to always take a closer look at the apps you’re downloading, research them if need be and pay attention to user reviews. That way you will always know beforehand if there are any additional features to a given application and will be able to make an informed decision as to whether you really want to download the program or not.
Is Wehorier “Virus” a virus or something else?
This is another frequently asked question by users, who’ve been infected by a browser hijacker. The answer is assuredly no. However, there are a few aspects to browser hijackers that put them in the potentially unwanted program category or PUP. One such aspect is the fact that this software gathers your browsing-related information, which in in itself is already worrying, and then sells this information to third parties. That last part is especially disturbing, given the rate at which various instances of data misuse and identity theft occur. Another rather unsettling fact is that some of the numerous ads might night be what they seem. They could redirect you to harmful websites, littered with awful viruses such as Trojans, ransomware, spyware and who knows what else.
