What is Your Free PDF Converter hijacker
Your Free PDF Converter is a browser extension that is promoted as a tool that helps with PDF file conversion. Despite its legitimate look, many computer experts classify it as a browser hijacker. As soon as Your Free PDF Converter enters the computer, it changes the browser’s configuration and sets new tab URL, search engine and homepage.

Therefore, you should immediately remove Your Free PDF Converter, especially if the program entered the computer without you noticing. To do this, follow our step-by-step guide.
