What is info.com Search?
Info.com is a metasearch engine. It means that it collects and provides search results from a number of legitimate search providers. It is a legitimate website and there is nothing malicious about it. We can only label is as a potentially unwanted application in case users install info.com on their browsers without ever intending to do so. However, in such a case it is easy to remove info.com from your computer via browser settings. If you are concerned about your computer’s security you can also invest in a licensed antimalware tool that will help you keep track of your system’s safety.
Where does info.com come from?
The company which manages this search engine is based on London, United Kingdom. The plug-in for info.com does not enter your system surreptitiously, because the user is expected to add info.com to Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome web browser himself/herself. No bundling has been noticed during our tests, and there are no third party installers that would hijack the search provider for info.com, so virtually the only way to get info.com onto your computer is through info.com/plugins.
Therefore, we can say that info.com is not a malicious infection or a browser hijacker, because it cannot enter a particular system without user’s permission.
