What is quicklogin.io?

QuickLogin is a deceptive application (a browser toolbar) that supposedly allows users easily access their emails. On initial inspection, such functionality actually seems appropriate and handy. However, it is worth noting that in reality QuickLogin is categorized as a browser hijacker and a potentially unwanted application (PUA). That's because it often computers without asking for user's permission, promotes a fake web search engine and records various information about user's web browsing activity.

quicklogin.io browser hijacker

After successfully infiltrating the system, QuickLogin assigns web browsers' (usually such browser hijackers target Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox) new tab URL, default search engine, and homepage options as quicklogin.io. Changes like this aren't significant. However, what's more important is that users are unable to revert them. That's because QuickLogin is designed to reassign browsers' settings every time someone attempts to change. For this reason, returning browsers to their previous state becomes impossible. Users have no choice but to visit quicklogin.io site every time they open a new browsing tab or simply search the web via URL bar. Such unwanted redirects significantly diminish web browsing experience. As with most of browser hijackers, QuickLogin also gathers various information about user's web browsing activity. Browser-hijacking apps usually gather IP addresses, website URLs visited, search queries, pages viewed, and other similar data that often includes personal information. The problem is that PUAs' developers share recorded information with third parties (potentially, cyber criminals) who misuse it to generate revenue. This means that having a data-tracking app installed on your computer might eventually lead to serious privacy issues or even identity theft. Users who encounter redirects to quicklogin.io should immediately remove QuickLogin browser hijacker and never return to this site again.

Internet is full of browser-hijacking applications that share similarities with QuickLogin. For example, DailyFunnyWorld, TaxCenterNow, SpecialSearchOption, Search4Musix, and many others. By offering various "useful features", developers attempt (and often succeed) to create the impression of legitimacy/usefulness and trick users into installation. In reality, however, only a small portion of unwanted apps actually provide promised functions. Most of them are designed only to generate revenue for the developers. Hence, rather than giving any real value for the actual user, unwanted apps cause unwanted redirects and gather various information. By doing so, apps pose direct threat to user's privacy and web browsing safety.

How did QuickLogin install on my computer?

Despite the fact that QuickLogin does have an official website, most of users install this application inadvertently, without their consent. Developers promote QuickLogin by using a deceptive marketing method called "bundling". What developers do is hide "bundled" apps (in this case, QuickLogin) behind "Custom/Advanced" options (or other sections) of download/installation processes - they're not honest enough to properly disclose such information. Therefore, users who carelessly rush these procedures and skip most of the step often end up unwillingly installing potentially unwanted applications. In other words, users simply expose the system to risk of various infections and put their very own privacy into threat.

How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

Everyone should know that the main reasons for computer infections are poor knowledge and reckless behavior. The key to it's safety is caution and, thus, paying attention when browsing the Internet and downloading/installing software is a must. Always be sure to select "Custom/Advanced" settings of download/installation processes and carefully analyze each step of these procedures. While doing so, decline all offers to download/install additional applications and opt-out already included ones. We highly recommend to avoid using third party download/installation tools, because crooks often monetize those by using the "bundling" method (in other words, promoting PUAs). Instead, you should download apps only from official sources, using direct download links. It is also worth mentioning that intrusive advertisements (which are often used to proliferate PUAs) usually look completely appropriate. Once clicked, however, ads expose themselves by redirecting to unreliable websites, such as gambling, pornography, survey, and similar. Most are delivered by adware-type apps, which means that users who encounter such redirects should immediately remove all questionable applications and browser plug-ins. If your computer is already infected with QuickLogin, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate this browser hijacker.
