What is Search.searchleasier.com?
It is quite easy to recognize untrustworthy search engines because they are tools which are set without a user’s consent. Since Search.searchleasier.com tends to change the settings of users’ browsers too so that it could appear as a homepage and default search engine, it falls into the category of these unreliable search providers as well. In fact, specialists have classified it as a browser hijacker because of the fact that it is capable of sneaking onto computers and then changing browsers’ settings without permission. If you have discovered a dubious search tool Search.searchleasier.com set on your browsers too, it means that you have become a victim of this browser hijacker as well. Do not use Search.searchleasier.com as your default search engine because this might result in a number of problems.

What does Search.searchleasier.com do?
The main symptom that a browser hijacker has been installed on your computer is the presence of Search.searchleasier.com on all browsers. Users often do not notice a new search tool set immediately because it has an appearance of an ordinary search tool, i.e. there is a search box in the middle of the page. Some people do not hurry to get rid of it not because they do not notice it set but because they believe that this search tool is harmless. We cannot blame those users because Search.searchleasier.com really does not look harmful and it works in a beneficial way, i.e. it returns search results. No matter how it looks, there is no doubt that it cannot be trusted because of these sponsored links shown on its search result page. These links usually look like ordinary search results, but the truth is that their only purpose is to drive the traffic to third-party websites. Actually, it seems that Search.searchleasier.com has been created to provide users with these ads and generate money for the developer only. The following search tools based on the same template as Search.searchleasier.com have, probably, been released with the same purpose in mind: search.yourpackagesnow.com, search.yourmapscenter.com, and search.yourclassifiedscenter.com. Do not use any of them to search for the information because you might see more promotional links and ads than decent search results.
Search.searchleasier.com definitely cannot be called a reliable search tool also because it records personal details entered by users into the search box. It is not a feature of a trustworthy search engine. Even though these personal details are recorded as search data (“You are consenting to grant Polarity permission to collect your URLs and search data, including search queries that may contain personally identifiable information”), i.e. indirectly, this activity might still violate your privacy, especially if you have submitted something really important into the search box of Search.searchleasier.com. Problems usually arise when this recorded information is sold to third parties. The longer you keep Search.searchleasier.com set on your browsers, the more information it will find out about you. Therefore, it is recommended to get rid of it as soon as possible.
Where does Search.searchleasier.com come from?

Bundling is the method used to spread browser hijackers, so it is very likely that you have installed it together with freeware from the web. Of course, it is not the only distribution method of browser hijackers. Be very careful because these infections are very sneaky.
