My Login Hub browser hijacker removal instructions
What is My Login Hub?
My Login Hub is an application that supposed to provide a quick access to various email accounts, users supposed to be able to access them directly from a newly opened tab. However, My Login Hub turns out to be a browser hijacker, a potentially unwanted application (PUA). As a rule, browser hijackers are designed to promote addresses of fake search engines by changing browser's settings. Also, most of them collect browsing data. They are called PUAs because people tend to download and install them unintentionally. My Login Hub gets installed together with another PUA which is called Hide My Searches.
Typically, browser hijackers change settings such as address of a default search engine, homepage and new tab. My Login Hub changes these addresses to hp.hmyloginhub.co. It means that a browser that is hijacked by My Login Hub loads this website every time when users open it. Also, it gets loaded when users open new tab and enter search queries into URL bar. Hp.hmyloginhub.co is an address of a fake search engine that which does not generate any unique search results, it provides results generated by Yahoo. In other words, people who use hp.hmyloginhub.co as a search engine get redirected to search.yahoo.com. In order to remove hp.hmyloginhub.co from all the aforementioned settings it is required to uninstall My Login Hub, otherwise this browser hijacker will reassign its settings after every attempt to change them. Another reason why My Login Hub should be uninstalled is that apps of this type usually are designed deigned to gather browsing data. In some cases they are designed to record personal, sensitive details as well. Typically, they gather IP addresses, addresses of visited pages, entered search queries, geolocations, and so on. Their developers sell all collected information to third parties who misuse them to generate revenue. It is possible that they might sell it to cyber criminals. Either way, it is not safe to use browser hijackers or have them on browsers and/or operating systems installed. These apps could cause problems with browsing safety, privacy, etc., some users might even become victims of identity theft.

My Login Hub is similar to other apps of this type, for example, Newfinder APP, Auto Purge and Quickgo Search. Typically, browser hijackers are advertised useful, legitimate apps. However, after installation they change browser' settings and constantly gather various information. In other words, these apps are designed to generate revenue for their developers and often do not deliver any features or other value. For these reasons My Login Hub, Hide My Searches or any other PUA should be uninstalled as soon as possible.
How did My Login Hub install on my computer?
My Login Hub is available for download on its website, it is very likely that most people download and install it through clicked deceptive ads or setups of other software. To trick users into downloading and installing PUAs together with other software developers distribute PUAs by using a "bundling" method. Simply said, they include unwanted apps in download and/or installation setups and hide information about them being included in their settings like "Custom", "Advanced", and so on. People who leave those settings unchecked and unchanged often download and/or allow for unwanted apps to be downloaded and/or installed too.
How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?
It is not safe to download and/or install software through third party downloaders, installers, Peer-to-Peer networks like eMule, torrent clients, from unofficial websites, and other similar sources. It should be downloaded only from official pages and via direct download links. If a download and/or installation setup includes settings like "Custom", "Advanced", then they should not be left unchecked. If those settings contain offers to download and/or install unwanted software, then those offers should be declined before finishing download and/or installation process. Furthermore, ads that are displayed on questionable pages, if clicked, often redirect to untrustworthy websites. In some cases they download and/or install unwanted programs. And finally, all unwanted extensions, add-ons or plug-ins that are already installed on a browser should be removed. Programs of this kind that are installed on the operating system should be uninstalled too. If your computer is already infected with My Login Hub, we recommend running a scan with Spyhunter for Windows to automatically eliminate this browser hijacker.
