Yamdex.net Description

Yamdex.net is a Russian domain that serves as an advertising platform. Yamdex.net contains links towards dating sites, news pages, job sites and platforms for online games. Yamdex.net also offers a search field and shows currency exchange rates. You also may see tips on how to lose weight. The page doesn't host threats of any kind, but its administrators may use highly questionable methods to get a consistent flow of visitors. Yamdex.net is related to a browser hijacker that may change some of the settings of Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. After this questionable extension infects the Web clients, Yamdex.net may cause regular automatic redirections to yamdex.net. This process may be very annoying. This Russian advertising platform also may become your homepage, and you may be unable to change it back to your preferred choice. The browser hijacker might have received permission for its installation when you have agreed to load some freeware. To separate useful components in software bundles from suspicious applications that you don't need, you should use the 'Advanced' menu. Although Yamdex.net itself is safe, we cannot verify that all of its partners are also legit. Some of the sites may suggest you install some software, which may turn out to be adware or a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP). Security experts warn that other sites may show a series of pop-ups, which may prevent the user from closing the browser tab. Many of the affiliated platforms offer different products. However, it is not advisable to trust unknown sites with your money for security reasons. You should delete the annoying browser hijacker to stop the unauthorized redirections to Yamdex.net.
