    Apple appears to have 'hacked' all my Macs and kindly set https://www.apple.com as the homepage in safari. So I get these lovely pics of iPhones every time I open Safari. I try to reset in the usual way in safari preferences to my usual homepage (https://www.google.com.au/advanced_search) but it reverts back instantly to apple.com.

    Some of my Macs have let me reset the homepage back to Google but one of them refuses and give me this issue of reverting back to apple.com.

    I have tried pasting the new link in and using the set to current page option.

    I would have thought I am not the only person with this issue but I do not seem to find other posts on this apart from 'how to set homepage'.

    Apologies if I have set up a post already out there.

    Download and install MalwareBytes. Might have some malware that will reset everything each time the machine starts (seen this with mom's Mac when she fell for a fake "Need to update Adobe Flash" pop-up, defaulting Safari to a scam Google look-alike landing page).

    Am I the only person who has had safari in their macs set to Apple.com as the home page? This is nothing fake. This is apple forcing presets to advertise. It has happened on all five macs that I have.
