What is Bitable.com?
Bitable.com is a browser hijacker that uses unconventional methods to infiltrate Windows system. Although technically not a virus, Bitable.com has many characteristics of a potentially unwanted program (PUP):
- It automatically changes your browser’s home page and search engine to bitable.com, usually without your permission
- It redirects your searches through bitable.com, unless you specifically go to your favorite search engine
- It may collect and report your browsing behavior to third party companies, including advertising agencies
- It shows unwanted advertisements through pop-ups or in pages you browse
- Even if it may have an uninstaller app to remove Bitable, the browsers are kept intact, requiring additional fixing
Bitable.com hijacker affects modern browsers such as Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Opera. You should remove Bitable.com without hesitation as the “add-on” is a huge privacy risk and a gate to potential malicious applications. The advertisements may show software that is tempting to download, but it may contain viruses, trojans, keyloggers and even more “add-ons” like Bitable.com.
