Yourhomepage.org is a fraudulent page that may appear in your Web browser even though you have never visited this website before. There are several things that might be the reason why you come across Yourhomepage.org while browsing the Web – you either have adware or a browser hijacker installed on your computer, or you visited a page that hosts a rather low-quality advertising campaign. Regardless of the cause of the issue, it is important to know a bit more about Yourhomepage.org and the fake information that this page may present.

Yourhomepage.org hosts a fake survey, which is translated into multiple languages, and visitors will see the translation that corresponds to their IP address' approximate geographical location. According to the information published on Yourhomepage.org, visitors get a chance to win awesome monetary prizes, as well as various gadgets and high-tech devices, which may sound like an appealing offer. The survey is made to sound more legitimate by asking visitors to respond to several easy questions to acquire their prize (usually about four questions). However, at the end of the survey, the user might be asked to provide the website with certain information, their phone number, or even to text/message a specific phone number to confirm their identity. Sending text messages or calling random phone numbers found in surveys like the one hosted on Yourhomepage.org is strongly prohibited, since these offers may often end up being low-quality tactics that may increase your phone bill drastically.

Seeing Youhomepage.org in your Web browser is certainly not a symptom of unwanted or potentially harmful software. However, there's a slight chance that this may be the case, and this is why users who see this page in their Web browser regularly should run an anti-malware scanner to ensure that the issue is not caused by software on their computer.
