What is MyTransitGuide?

MyTransitGuide is a deceptive browser extension created for one purpose – promotion of third-party sites. To succeed in this intention, the developers made it look like an ordinary search engine, still, the page gives itself away with a number of ads seen on it. Despite the fact that the page is intended to be a search engine, you shouldn’t use it for this purpose – bear in mind that the page belongs to malware and is used as a tool for misleading the users. When a search performed, the results are always unpredictable as the hijacker tends to replace the relevant pages with those that it promotes. There were cases of users being brought to malicious websites by the MyTransitGuide hijacker. What is more confusing is that the malware blocks the browser setting from altering, so that a user won’t be able to change the homepage manually. The only means to get rid of these problems is to remove MyTransitGuide itself.
