Do you know what My Email Signin is?
My Email Signin is a piece of software promoted at the Chrome Web Store (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/my-email-signin/aclebadgjklemddbgcjaoggkedebfgah) and http://myemailsignin.com/. It enables users to access email service providers like Google, Hotmail, Outlook, and Yahoo with the single click, so some users find it quite beneficial. Unfortunately, not all people have a positive opinion about it. Specialists also do not consider this Polarity Technologies Ltd. product reputable software either. They have even classified it as a browser hijacker because it has been observed that it can infiltrate computers and change browsers’ (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome) settings without permission. If you already see http://search.hmyemailsignin.com/ set as your homepage, New Tab URL, and default search provider, it means you have installed My Email Signin on your computer as well. If you are not happy about the changes it has applied to your browsers, you should remove it today. It is not a harmful malicious application, so its removal should not be very challenging. Internet Explorer users can erase it via Control Panel, whereas those using Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome need to erase it via the add-ons manager.

My Email Signin is often classified as a browser hijacker because many users cannot remember willingly installing this piece of software and setting a new search tool on their browsers. Research conducted by our specialists has also confirmed that it might be distributed via bundled malicious installers. It is not the first and definitely not the last suspicious software traveling inside software “packages,” so you should be more cautious. It is not always that easy to notice these “additional offers” and cancel their installation, so our specialists recommend having security software enabled 24/7/365 as well.
You should not find the My Email Signin removal complicated at all because this piece of software is not one of those sophisticated threats. People using Internet Explorer could even erase it via Control Panel. It will be slightly harder to remove this extension if you use Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome because you will need to access the add-ons manager first to be able to do this, but we are sure you could erase it yourself manually if you follow our step-by-step manual removal instructions (you can find them below this article).
