What is Bitable.com?
Bitable.com is a browser hijacker that is distributed via free third party software. The application can change your browser settings such as default search engine and home page. The program may be advertised as a tool that will somehow enhance your online experience, but the truth is it does nothing of the sort.
In fact, it will fill your browsers with various ads, pop-ups and other commercial data. Moreover, it can also cause various redirects to unfamiliar pages. If you want to return your browsers back to normal, you should definitely delete Bitable.com.
How does Bitable.com work?
Browser hijackers usually travel together with freeware and shareware applications. They are hidden in the installers of free programs that you can download on websites like brothersoft.com, cnet.com, soft32.com and similar. If you do not pay attention to their installation process, you allow these programs to enter your PC as well. If you want to avoid that in the future, you should always choose Advanced installation option and deselect the additional applications that you have no use for. Although potentially unwanted programs are not malicious themselves, they are still not something that you need in your system.
Once the hijacker takes over your browsers, your home page and search engine get replaced with Bitable.com. This website does not look at all suspicious. It has a search box in the middle of the page and several quick access buttons right below it. These buttons include links to such popular websites as Facebook, YouTube, Google, Twitter and some others. Some links presented by the application may be legitimate, however, you should keep in mind that the hijacker can easily expose you to unsafe web content. That is the main reason to get rid of Bitable.com. There is no point in risking your online security for the hijacker.
