essqz Hijack
« on: April 06, 2021, 03:26:53 PM »
I'm having an issue with my UMX android phone with some sort of adware virus I believe. I use Google Chrome as my main browser and for the last month, when I click on Google Chrome and even when I'm not using Google Chrome it redirects me to weird websites, it has also added a swipe screen. I have only DL and installed one app that this could have been introduced from. There was other malware installed as well but AVAST recognized and removed them. I have not done a factory reset nor does it appear that this will solve the problem after searching and finding out about this Hijacking malware.

Try clearing all browser data in Chrome.
Also if you have added any extensions to Chrome try removing them.
