mixPhotoz is the name of a deceptive and potentially malicious browser extension and webpage. Browser extensions like mixPhotoz for Google chrome are typically recognized as adware and browser hijackers because once they are installed they will make unwanted modifications to existing internet browser settings without consent of the user. The mixPhotoz browser extension will replace the existing homepage with itself. This will cause affected web browsers to start-up on the webpage when a new browser window is opened. The extension will also change the new tab page and default search engine. When this occurs a new tab page will open on mixPhotoz and web searches via the address bar will redirect to the website.
