What is Instagram2Go?

Instagram2Go is a rogue application that allegedly allows watching your Instagram feed directly from the desktop. Aside from this, it is the main culprit responsible for frequent redirects and annoying pop-up advertisements in your browser. For this reason, Instagram2Go is classified as an adware which is meant to generate profits for its developers, but the way it does that is not acceptable. It generally infiltrates the system along with questionable freeware you may download from the Web. Once installed, it hijacks browser and injects advertisements into websites that are visited by the user. We urgently advise you to remove Instagram2Go asap as it also serves as a backdoor for other malware to enter. To do so, you may follow the step-by-step guide provided below.
