    Perform a factory reset on your device from settings app and it will belong to the past! ;-)

    If the virus installed as a system app, a factory reset won't touch it. Use an antivirus app and see if it detects it. If not, try Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. (Not all browser hijackers are viruses.)

    There might be two reasons:
    1 you have installed and runned APPs from unidentified developers or sources.
    2 If you have rooted your phone, some malware can get the superuser authority and infect your device.

    To get rid of the virus, you can take the following steps:
    1 use anti-virus application
    2 reset your phone
    3 install a new ROM
