My Login Hub browser hijacker removal instructions

What is My Login Hub?

The My Login Hub application supposedly provides quick access to various email accounts - users can supposedly access them directly from a newly opened tab. In fact, My Login Hub is actually a browser hijacker, a potentially unwanted application (PUA). Generally, browser hijackers promote the addresses of fake search engines by changing browser settings. Furthermore, most collect browsing data. They are classed as PUAs, since people tend to download and install them unintentionally. Note that My Login Hub is installed together with another PUA called Hide My Searches.

hp.hmyloginhub.co browser hijacker

Typically, browser hijackers change settings such as the address of the default search engine, homepage, and new tab. My Login Hub assigns these addresses to hp.hmyloginhub.co. Therefore, browsers hijacked by My Login Hub load this address when users open the browser program. Furthermore, it is loaded when they open a new tab or enter search queries into the URL bar. Note that hp.hmyloginhub.co is the address of a fake search engine that does not generate any unique search results - it simply provides results generated by Yahoo. Therefore, people who use hp.hmyloginhub.co as a search engine are redirected to search.yahoo.com. To remove hp.hmyloginhub.co from the aforementioned settings, My Login Hub must be uninstalled, otherwise this browser hijacker will reassign the settings after each attempt to change them. It should also be uninstalled, since apps of this type are usually designed to gather browsing data. In some cases, they record personal, sensitive details as well. Typically, they gather IP addresses, addresses of visited pages, entered search queries, geolocations, and so on. Developers sell the information to third parties (often, cyber criminals) who misuse private details to generate revenue. It is not safe to use browser hijackers or have them installed on browsers and/or operating systems. These apps cause problems with browsing safety, privacy, etc., and some users might even become victims of identity theft.

My Login Hub is similar to other apps of this type including, 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 continually gather information. These apps generate revenue for the developers and often deliver no useful features or any other value. For these reasons, My Login Hub, Hide My Searches and other PUAs should be uninstalled immediately.

How did My Login Hub install on my computer?

My Login Hub is available for download on its website, however, most people download and install it through clicked deceptive ads or the set-ups of other software. To trick users into downloading and installing PUAs with other software, developers distribute PUAs using the "bundling" method - they include unwanted apps into the download and/or installation set-ups and hide related information in settings such as "Custom", "Advanced", and so on. People who leave these settings unchecked and unchanged often allow unwanted apps to be downloaded and installed by default.

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 such as eMule, torrent clients, from unofficial websites, or other similar sources. Download only from official web pages and via direct download links. If a download and/or installation setup includes settings such as "Custom", "Advanced", do not leave them unchecked. If the settings contain offers to download or install unwanted software, dismiss them before finishing the download and/or installation process. Note that ads that are displayed on dubious web pages often redirect to untrustworthy websites if they are clicked. In some cases they download and/or install unwanted programs. Remove all unwanted extensions, add-ons or plug-ins that are already installed on the browser. Also uninstall programs of this kind that are installed on the operating system. If your computer is already infected with My Login Hub, we recommend running a scan with Malwarebytes for Windows to automatically eliminate this browser hijacke.
