Whilokii is a browser hijacker which is able to cause real problems if once installed on your PC.

It is recommended by security specialists that you should not visit sites with suspicious reputation. In case that Whilokii navigates your online traffic, it will be really hard for you to protect your system and information from attacks of cyber criminals.
