What is Taplika.com?

How does Taplika.com work?
Once the hijacker enters your system, it switches your home page and default search engine to Taplika.com. It also installs an extension called Quick Start to your browsers which appears every time you open a new tab. Your new home page does not look like a reliable site. It has a search box, quick access buttons and fake advertisements. We suggest you avoid the adverts if you do not wish to get stuck with unwanted or even malicious software. If you try using the search provider, you will get results from Google. Since you can use Google directly, you have to need for Taplika.com.
Other symptoms that you will notice with the appearance of the hijacker is the increased amount of commercial data. You will see ads on all pages that you visit regardless of their content. The advertisements are not all legitimate. We would urge to avoid them. Clicking on fake ads may result in malware infection, data loss and even financial consequences. Some of the ads may seem useful to you, but that is only because they were customized based on your browsing history. The commercials also slow down your Internet connection. If you want to eliminate these unwanted changes, you should terminate Taplika.com as soon as you can.
