Wallpapers by MyWay is a Browser hijacker.

Behavior

When the browser extension is installed, it will change the user's default homepage into Wallpapers by MyWay's website.

These changes may not seem significant, however, users are unable to revert them, since Wallpapers reassigns the aforementioned settings when attempts are made to change them. Therefore, returning browsers to their previous states becomes impossible and users are forced to visit hp.myway.com when they open a new browser tab or attempt to search via the URL bar. This significantly diminishes the web browsing experience. Be aware also that users' web browsing activity is continually monitored, since Wallpapers records IP addresses, search queries, URLs visited, and other similar data.

This information might be personally identifiable and shared by developers with third parties (potentially, cyber criminals) who misuse personal details to generate revenue. Thus, the presence of an information-tracking app such as Wallpapers on the user's system can lead to serious privacy issues or even identity theft. The user is strongly advised to remove this browser hijacker from their computer immediately.

Removal
