How to remove Nicetab redirect from Mac

Sharing is caring!

What is Nicetab?

Nicetab is a potentially unwanted program that is used to hijack macOS devices. This hijacker spreads through other programs as an optional offer so the easiest way to avoid infection is to always opt out of all additional apps during the installation of new programs. If you failed to do this, your browser settings will get corrupted. And the first thing you’re going to see – http://nicetab.live/ web page that will take place of your default homepage. This is an unreliable search engine that delivers irrelevant results. Also, the hijacker injects sponsored advertising into the browser that brings revenue to Nicetab developers and which will interfere with your work in the browser. If that is not enough Nicetab can collect data about your browsing activity and transfer them to third-parties. Therefore, we recommend you to remove Nicetab and never download any suspicious browser extensions again.
