Spellso got into my firefox sync and now it's on my phone. Please help!!

Posted

Got infected with the spellso virus accidentally. Thought I had gotten rid of it, but the next thing I know it's on my phone. The only way it could have gotten there is because of sync. How do I get rid of browser hijackers in sync so they don't infect my other devices?

First thing to do is to disconnect all your devices from Sync. Then fix that "spellso virus" browser hijacker on all devices it afflicted. Before reconnecting to Sync change your Firefox Account password so that your Sync account on the server will be deleted and clean. Or just create a new Sync account, to be safe. Then you can reconnect to Sync.
