Hi there! I am having some problems everytime l look up something it brings me to Yahoo or Micosoft Bing and the thing is that is not the search engeine l use, l use google. This started today and this never happened to me in this broswer, it happend to me in Safari but l dont mind it since l use Brave. I looked it up and it said it has a “browser hijacked”. Please help me! (btw l use Mac)
Clear DNS cache on your Mac:
Click on “Clear host cache”
Clear browser cache on your Mac:
Set Time range to “All time”
ENABLE all three:
- Browsing history
- Cookies and other site data
- Cached images and files
Click on the “Clear data” button
On your Mac, go to:
and move the “com.brave.Browser” folder to the Trash
Quit everything and Restart your Mac
Temporarily pick a different Search Engine:
Report back - does a Brave Browser window go to it?
In a New Window?
In a New Private Window?
Worth to try:
- disable your extensions
Most likely one if your extension is the culprit.
