How Did Mac Tonic Enter Your Computer?Mac Tonic infiltrates your system like most browser redirects do – via freeware. Freeware includes all programs, tools, add-ons out there that are available for a free download.
Since the creators of the free programs need to get paid after all, they insert various software components that enter your system while you think you are downloading only the free program. Such unwanted components then are capable of generating revenue for third parties via the Pay-Per-Click method. To avoid letting unwanted programs enter you computer, be extra cautious during the installation process of the freeware. Uncheck all previously selected boxes such as “recommended settings”, for example. Choose only the “custom” option and that is how you’ll not end up with various unwanted pieces of software, some of which may be malicious too.
Is Mac Tonic Dangerous?Mac Tonic is of no value to your browsing needs as it does not even have its own database. If you try to search something via that browser hijacker, it will redirect you to Google. Why would you ever need it then?
What’s worse, however, is that Mac Tonic is not HTTPs encrypted while all trustworthy search engines are. A non-encrypted connection is vulnerable against attacks and malicious components can easily gain access to your system via such search engine.
As a result, hackers and advertisers can watch your online behavior, collect your data, steal your sensitive information, hack your system, etc.
