Unauthorized redirecting is not a thing you can ignore.

The second thing you need to think about when dealing with is your virtual security.

Although some users might download Digital Coin Tracker and via the official download site or the Chrome web store, our research team warns that this strange software is most likely to be spread via unreliable sites and bundled with other threats. If that is how you let in the PUP and hijacker, you cannot forget about these other threats, and it is best for you to install an anti-malware program to have all of them deleted at once. If this is not an option you choose, you will need to delete yourself, and, as we already discussed, you can do that by removing Digital Coin Tracker. The instructions below show how to do it.

In non-techie terms:

You want to delete because it does not offer beneficial services and because it can offer you an unreliable search service, as well as track and leak information about your activity. The hijacker should come bundled with the potentially unwanted extension called “Digital Coin Tracker,” and it should be enough to delete it to have the hijacker eliminated as well. Of course, if the hijacker slithers in on its own, you might have to change search settings directly via your browser. Since this strange software is most likely to enter the system in a bundle along with other threats, using a legitimate anti-malware program is strongly recommended because it will automatically scan your system and delete all existing threats. Otherwise, you would have to erase all threats yourself.
