Android: Unknown Chrome hijacker redirecting to g21news.com, no detection.

Recommended Posts

Hi,   I'm experiencing a chrome hijacker on my android phone that remains after factory reset.  Malwarebytes does not detect any malware.  I only have Play store apps and nothing else fancy.  It directs to g21news.com and changes chrome custom homepage to this unless I take the space with another site, but it still redirects occasionally.  When I first factory reset my phone I think it initially redirected to firstly.com.


Thank you, I haven't been able to find any information about this on the web.

Hi @stvvv,

On some phone models, g21news.com comes default at the default browsers (usually Chrome) homepage.  Here's how to change the homepage on Chrome:

  • Settings > Homepage
  • Change the Open this page to Chrome's homepage or change the g21news.com link to whatever URL you like

If you've already done this, and it keeps making the homepage g21news.com, then there could be something else going on.  What make/model of phone do you have?
