Why do I get redirected to the Facebook login page when I type google.com?

Episode 957 (59:09)

Patsy from Huntington Beach, CA
Facebook.com

When Patsy tries going to google.com, her network goes to "Facebook" with a message "unverified server" on all her devices. Leo says there's a chance her home network has been hacked. She should not log into Facebook. It makes sense that Google gets redirected so she can't figure out a solution to her problem. The chatroom says that it could be her DNS server. They advise going to http://74.125.224.72/, and if Google pops up, then there's a DNS issue. If it doesn't, then it may be the DNS has been changed on the router. She should call her ISP and see what's going on. The support reps can talk her through changing the DNS numbers.

Leo recommends going to OpenDNS and using their DNS servers. They have great instructions on how to alter her router DNS settings. They're very secure, it's free. and it provides the benefit of blocking adult sites and other malicious sites to protect kids.

Leo also suggests going to GRC.com and running SHIELDS UP! to see how vulnerable she really is.
