What is Taplika.com?
Taplika.com is an intrusive application classified as a browser hijacker. The program changes your browser settings and you cannot undo these changes manually until you remove Taplika.com. Like any other hijacker Taplika.com is advertised as a reliable search engine that will provide you with the best results. In reality, however, it is just a program that was created in order to make profit by generating traffic of certain webpages.
Taplika.com is compatible with all browsers so it will interrupt your surfing no matter which one of them you use. As the application adds no value to your PC and causes unnecessary disturbance, we recommend to delete Taplika.com.
How does Taplika.com work?
If you do not remember installing Taplika.com, you most likely acquired the software together with some freeware or shareware program. Potentially unwanted programs like browser hijackers are often bundled with free software. Therefore when you install third-party applications you need to pay special attention to the installation wizard. Check the End User License Agreement for further information on what else you are installing aside from Taplika.com. You can also choose Advanced Installation to deny access to the additional programs.
After Taplika.com enters your system it modifies your search engine, home page and new tab page. It also causes redirects to unfamiliar webpages that have nothing to do with your browsing session. Furthermore, you will also be distracted by the increased amount of ads, banners and pop-ups that your browsers will be filled with. All of these unnecessary changes will cause your Internet connection to slow down. You should also keep in mind that after Taplika.com enters your PC it will start collecting information about your browsing habits like what pages you visit and what searches you make. This data is collected in order to personalize the adverts you see and increase the chances of you actually following the presented links. We do not recommend doing so as the ads that are displayed may not be safe. To improve your online security and go back to normal browsing you should terminate Taplika.com.
