What is

If you have encountered a software bundle offering, you have to think carefully if this installer can be trusted. According to our malware researchers, this browser hijacker can be spread by malicious installers, and it could be packaged along with dangerous threats. Of course, that is not a given, and it is possible that you will find this hijacker attached to a harmless application, but you must keep in mind that certain threats have very misleading disguises, and it might be difficult for you to identify them as threats. If you have already accepted the installation of the suspicious search tool, the first thing we recommend doing is scanning your operating system with a legitimate malware scanner. If you are lucky, you will find no other threats. If you are not so lucky, you will need to remove malicious infections. In either case, you should not forget to delete, and you can learn why we recommend this by reading the report.test

How does work?

The first thing that our malware analysts discovered when researching was that this hijacker belongs to a group of hijackers we have reported many times before.,, and many other hijackers belong to this group, and you can remove all of them using the same steps. If they all work the same, were they created by the same company? It is possible that they were, but there is no way of confirming that. For example, according to the information in the Privacy Policy representing, the creator of this hijacker is SaferBrowser. The problem is that anyone could use this name to conceal themselves. Speaking of the Privacy Policy, have you reviewed it? If you have not, you probably do not know that the hijacker has the potential to record information that is considered personally-identifiable. Moreover, it could potentially leak this information to other parties, and, of course, we are not introduced to them. Do you still consider this hijacker transparent and trustworthy? If you do not, you should not postpone its removal for any longer.

Another good reason to remove from your browsers is its uselessness. Of course, it displays a few easy-access links to sites you might be interested in, but, in general, it is useless. Even the search services are not considered beneficial because the hijacker uses Yahoo Search to display results. Well, isn’t that great? Although Yahoo Search is considered a reliable search provider, you should not trust it if you are redirected to it from a browser hijacker. Why? Unfortunately, the results could be modified. That means that you might think you are browsing the web using Yahoo Search, when, in reality, you are browsing the web via a search engine that can be manipulated to show ads and sponsored links. Is it possible that you can use the hijacker without facing any security issues? Everything is possible, but you should not ignore the possibility that you might be putting your own security at risk just so you could use a useless search tool.

How to delete

Needless to say, we think it is best to remove from your browsers. This hijacker should only affect the homepage, and that is very easy to fix. All you have to do is change the homepage URL, and the guide below shows how to do that on Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Chrome browsers. The manual removal of this hijacker is very easy, but we cannot guarantee that it will be just as easy for you to clean your operating system completely. If you uncover other threats with the help of a legitimate malware scanner, you need to think about their elimination as well. If you cannot erase certain threats yourself, there is no point in deleting some of them. Instead, utilize an anti-malware tool that can eliminate all infections found on your computer at once.
