How to remove Informationprotection.us browser hijacker from Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer

Informationprotection.us is a website that provides technical supports for users that have issues with low performance, viruses, emails, drivers and other computer related things. However, there are few things I would like to call attention to. First of all Informationprotection.us is a mirror or clone of the vulnerabilityalert.xyz website, which was classified as a browser hijacker. Since Informationprotection.us can appear in users web browser set as default homepage without users knowledge we can clearly state that it is browser hijacker. Secondly, the website is on early development, was registered on august 4th, 2015 by Sebastian Barale and it still doesn’t have any privacy policy and terms and conditions. And at last but not least, the information provided on Informationprotection.us is misleading. If you call on that toll-free number you will be charged.
