What is Bingoweb.ga?
Bingoweb.ga might show Google search results via Google Custom Search; however, our Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers warn that this is yet another browser hijacker that might pose trouble. Since it is possible to set this search engine as your homepage, it is possible that you have installed it yourself. It is also possible that you have installed this search tool onto your browsers bundled with other suspicious programs. Of course, it is most shocking to find this search tool installed without permission, in which case, it is a malicious hijacker that you must eliminate from your browsers as soon as possible. Note that if this hijacker has found its way into your PC without your notice, it is very likely that other unreliable programs have infiltrated your operating system silently as well. Due to this, before you jump to removing Bingoweb.ga, we advise running a malware scanner to find if you need to eliminate any other unreliable programs.
How does Bingoweb.ga work?
It is unlikely that you know that Bingoweb.ga has clones, primarily because they do not travel bundled together. Safe-web.tk, search-eyes.tk, and fast-search.tk are few of the many hijackers that are identical to one another. Unsurprisingly, all of them share the same privacy policies and are directly linked to the infamous Globasearch.com hijacker. If this is the hijacker that has taken over your browsers, you still might think that you are dealing with some other hijacker because Globasearch.com automatically redirects you to one of the unreliable search engines mentioned previously. Every single engine has the same interface. The main search tool called “Web,” presents Google Custom Search; however, Wikipedia, Download.com, Youtube, Images, Yahoo, and Bing search tool are available as well. Furthermore, the interface of the hijacker provides three different tools: Advanced Search, Preferences, and Language Tools. These tools are meant to help you make your browsing experience more personalized. This, as well as the fact that Bingoweb.ga represents Google, makes this unreliable hijacker more attractive.
Extrahosted.com and softdistribute.com are few of the many sites that provide unreliable installers associated with Globasearch. If you discover Bingoweb.ga after downloading software from these or similar websites, it is likely that you need to delete Globasearch. As mentioned previously, you might also install this unreliable hijacker yourself. In either case, it is likely that you will be shown pop-up ads and surveys. Whether you see an ad promoting an attractive online game or an ad suggesting that you can claim some prize, it is best to ignore these ads altogether. The parties behind these ads might be unreliable, and you might be getting yourself into trouble by interacting with them. Even clicking on these ads could be used to install tracking cookies, and not all cookies are equal. Some of them are capable of tracking personal data, and you do not want them leaking your browsing history, your full name, and other sensitive information. Note that interacting with the third-party malware installed along with Bingoweb.ga could bring the same dangers.

Although this search tool is not one of those malicious hijackers that promote modified search results or redirect to malicious websites, we believe it is best to eliminate it from your browsers.
