Hi,
When i type udemy.com on my browser(updated chrome), it gets redirected to this website easyfun.biz and then it redirect again to some other website and then back to udemy.com automatically.

Sounds like a virus, spyware, or something. Check your Chrome extensions and do a virus scan. I don't know exactly what that site does, but my guess would be that it sets an affiliate cookie before redirecting you back to Udemy, or some even more shady stuff. Anyway, you have something bad on your system! 😉

I am attaching a screenshot of how i fixed this problem. Someone facing the same problem can try to fix it in the following way.
First you can download any good antivirus/anti-malware tool to have a quick scan.
Second open chrome advanced settings and reset settings as shown by an red arrow. 
I did this two steps and it solved my problem. 
Thanks

Hi Bibhu,

 

I think the issue is your computer system is infected with malware. Please check and run some good antivirus. I hope that will solve the issue. 

 

Thanks!

Hi,

Since this year I face this problem in Google Chrome (I'm not sure if this happens in other browsers), however, it only happens with Udemy.

Last month I got this fixed by resetting Chrome to defaults and disabling some extensions, however, yesterday it failed again, but redirecting to 'pinkrose info/2g-fg' instead of 'easyfun biz/2hC6Q'.

In this Reddit discussion there is another guy who faces the same problem.

These are a few of my enabled extensions: 'Capture d'une page complète en un clic' , IG Stories for Instagram™, RevEye Reverse Image Search, Social Video Downloader, Google Docs hors connexion, Enregistrer dans Google Drive.

I will keep it testing, however, it's weird it only happens to Udemy.
