What is Fissa.com?
Fissa.com is an unwanted application that can be classified as a browser hijacker. It is compatible with Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox, however, in most cases Mozilla Firefox disables the suspicious program. Fissa.com can change your home page and default search engines.
Although the search engine is powered by Google, we would not recommend using it as in addition to the Google search results you will also be presented with ads and sponsored links. The program displays various adverts and banners wherever you go online and there is no way to avoid them unless you delete Fissa.com altogether.
How does Fissa.com work?
Fissa.com works in a similar way to other browser hijackers. Once it enters your computer system, it may change your browser settings like home page, new tab page and default search provider. The reason it does that is to promote various websites and generate their traffic. That is how the authors of the hijacker make profit. Moreover, Fissa.com is also known to track your cookies and thus collect data about which pages you visit, what searches you make and so on. Although this information is not personally identifiable you may still be uncomfortable sharing it with third parties. If so, you should get rid of Fissa.com.
Privacy issues are not the only ones that you should be worried about when it comes to Fissa.com. The program exposes you to unsafe content that can lead to malware infection and financial losses. That is why you should stay away from all advertisements presented to you by this program. Fissa.com comes bundled with toolbars and Conduit browser add-ons. You will have to delete those as well if you want to return to safe web browsing.
