I've seen a lot of articles on the internet claiming that www.google.com/webhp is a scam/virus, but many posts/replies on the Help Community give this url and extra stuff on the end as a sort of modified google. For example, in this post where the modified link is https://www.google.com/webhp?complete=0&hl=en. Though it is probably to modify googling, I'm not exactly sure what webhp is.

Thanks for explaining!

I noticed this immediately after downloading VPN apps on my iPad. And found this information. ESG security researchers have received reports that the Google WebHP Virus itself is often installed along with a free VPN application used by computer users to connect to websites anonymously or to bypass geographical blocks. Although it is possible to opt out from installing the toolbar associated with the Google WebHP Virus, many computer users will not realize the consequences of installing this potentially unwanted program or will simply not realize that they need to opt out. This is a common way in which browser hijackers are spread.
