Remove Gobrowser.xyz

browser hijacker popups ads

Gobrowser.xyz is a dubious search engine, which appears to show up in the Web browsers of Mac users. Of course, none of them agreed to this change – instead, it was introduced by a dodgy 3rd-party application. We don't have the exact names of the apps that might be promoting Gobrowser.xyz, but we can assure you that they are probably classified as browser hijackers. This means that they are not dangerous, but they could be responsible for undesired changes to your Web browser's configuration. The goal of the Gobrowser.xyz hijacker is to promote the search engine, increase the traffic it receives and, therefore enhance its ad revenue.

While it is possible to use Gobrowser.xyz, we would not advise you to do this. It claims to be able to provide results from several search engines, and enables users to quickly switch between them. However, its features may change drastically, and it might attempt to promote dubious search services. Another reason why you might not want to use Gobrowser.xyz is because it might show unwanted and unnecessary advertisements.

The best way to ensure that Gobrowser.xyz won't bother you while using your Mac is to secure your device with the use of up-to-date anti-malware tool.
