What is TF.org?
TF.org (also known as The First search engine) falls into the category of browser hijackers. It is targeted towards Russian-speaking computer users, however, it does not differ much from other apps of this type. It affects all popular browsers by modifying their settings, inserting ads into the pages that you open, causing redirects to its sponsors, and more. There is nothing useful about the hijacker as its only goal is to make money off of you. We advise that you get rid of TF.org as soon as you can.
How does TF.org work?
If you do not remember installing TF.org or allowing it to change your settings, that is most likely because it arrived onto your PC together with other freeware. Free software usually comes with potentially unwanted apps that appear in the Advanced mode. These apps are a way for the creators of freeware to earn revenue. That is why soor after the hijacker gets access to your PC, it starts exposing you to advertising data. Although its most obvious symptom may be replacing your home page and default search provider with TF.org, it is certainly not the only tactic that it uses to trick you into interacting with its ads.
The truth is, the hijacker is also responsible for inserting pop-ups, links, banners, coupons, and other advertising data into all of your visited domains. Regardless of the content of the page, you will still have to deal with adverts not all of which are even reliable. The hijacker does not check the data that it shows you, so you could encounter various scams aimed at infecting your computer with malware, acquiring your personal details, tricking you into wasting your money, and so on. If you do not wish to get continuously exposed to unnecessary online threats, we suggest that you eliminate TF.org from your browsers without further delay.
