What is Qozmo.net?

Qozmo.net is a dubious search engine. It is not clear how it enters your computer, but we can surely say that if you get redirected to Qozmo.net, your system’s security has been compromised. Users often do not know when or how they install Qozmo.net on their systems. It happens because this search engine gets distributed with other freeware applications. You need to remove Qozmo.net and everything related to it from your computer as soon as possible. While such pieces of software may not be severe security threats, you should never take your chances.testtest 100% FREE spyware scan and

Where does Qozmo.net come from?

Our security researchers have found that Qozmo.net is related to Mavoo.net. Both search engines are published by LinkFeed LLC. It does not seem that this search engine is a malicious browser hijacker, but the fact it does not inform users about the oncoming installation is rather fishy.

As mentioned above, you most probably installed Qozmo.net on your computer yourself. Whenever you download freeware apps from third-party file sharing websites, you have to keep in mind that there is also a possibility you will install a bunch of unnecessary programs as well. Most of the time, these programs are not malicious, but they can be used as tools for data gathering and even malware distribution.

What does Qozmo.net do?

Qozmo.net is not a browser hijacker because it does not change your default search engine and your homepage. Instead, this search engine inserts itself into your internet settings, and you always get redirected to Qozmo.net. However, this redirection occurs momentarily whenever you try to access some website. The next thing you know, you land on the website you want.

It would seem that there is no problem if Qozmo.net eventually redirects you back to the website you wanted to open, but there is a catch. If all your browsing sessions get redirected through Qozmo.net, it means that your web browsing history is being monitored. Consequently, this can lead to customized commercial ads and other annoying behavior that will not allow you to browse the Internet properly. Eventually, it may even result in malware infection (although that is the worst case scenario).

How do I remove Qozmo.net?

This search engine does not have an entry in the list of installed programs, so you cannot remove Qozmo.net via Control Panel. You need to scan your computer with the SpyHunter free scanner to locate all the potentially unwanted programs that could be related to Qozmo.net. Uninstall all the unwanted programs through Control Panel and then reset your browser settings to default.

Eventually, scan your computer with a licensed antispyware tool once more, to make sure that everything is back to normal. If you have any further questions, you can always leave us a comment.
