Where does Safepage.easyfiletool.com come from?

Needless to say, the application has its own official website. That is one of the few reasons we cannot categorize Safepage.easyfiletool.com and everything related to it as malware.
Malware enters your system when you expect it the least. EasyFile, on the other hand, needs your permission to get installed on your system.

This extension, that is called Search App by EasyFileTool, changes your homepage and new tab settings. The next time you open your browser, it will automatically redirect you to Safepage.easyfiletool.com.
Is it safe to use this search engine? Well, the program certainly does not try to infect you with malware or steal your personal information. The issue here is that, for the most part, users do not agree to or are not aware of the fact that a new search engine is added to their browser. Thus, before we deal with the security matter, we should address the possibility that your personal privacy has been trespassed (unintentionally) by a random software application.
