What is the MergeDocsOnline?

MergeDocsOnline is questionable browser add-on that supposedly helps you manage your travel schedules, routes, etc. It’s also considered to be a potentially unwanted program (PUP) and a browser hijacker. Developed by Mindspark Interactive Network, a known PUP developer, the hijacker will take over your browsers and set its domain as your homepage and new tabs.


It will then try to redirect you to sponsored websites so that it could generate income. That is the main goal of a hijacker, it’s not there to make your browsing experience better. If you do not remember downloading it from the official site, which is likely, you probably got it via free software bundles. From now on, you need to be more careful about how you install free programs because you allowed the hijacker to enter yourself. And in the meantime, uninstall MergeDocsOnline.

How does MergeDocsOnline get on my computer?

There is a possibility that you obtained the add-on yourself, though why you would do that is a mystery. If that is not the case, then you must have recently installed free software. It could have been added to freeware as an additional item and because you did not notice it, the hijacker was allowed to install. If you want to avoid these unpleasant installations, make sure to always choose Advanced or Custom settings when installing freeware. They will show you what has been added and you will be allowed to deselect everything.
