So very recently (only around a day ago), I have had this weird issue where google would instantly be redirected to a fake version of itself.
I'm not sure exactly how to explain this, so I provided a gif:
As you can see, I search something into the address bar, which should instantly be directed straight to Google, but it doesn't do that. Instead it goes to google for a split second and redirects to some weird website that looks almost exactly the same as google.
What I've tried so far:
- Reinstall Google Chrome
- Performed a Malware Scan on Malwarebytes
- Tried changing homepage on Google Chrome settings
- Tried clearing the cache of Google Chrome within the settings
I'm not sure what else to try.
