First, as you already know, it can set itself on browsers without the user’s knowledge. Second, it might display sponsored links seeking to increase the number of visitors of certain pages. Most likely, its owner gets some money when users click on those third-party links.

Our specialists have analyzed its Privacy Policy document and found a disturbing sentence there: “By using the services, you are consenting to grant Polarity permission to collect your URLs and search data, including search queries that may contain personally identifiable information, share them with third parties, and use search-related cookies.” To put it differently, this search tool might record personal details as a component of search data and then disclose this information to third parties, which suggests that privacy-related problems might arise too if is used as a default search tool every day.

Where does come from?

Last but not least, cannot be considered a reputable search provider also because it usually appears on users’ browsers without permission. Users see it but cannot explain why it is there, which suggests that it can change browsers’ settings without the users’ consent, i.e. it can hijack browsers. Our researchers believe that this search tool sets itself on Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer when users install software bundles promoting it on their computers. In most cases, users download these bundles from P2P websites. If you download software from these pages quite often too, you should be more careful from now on because you might allow more dangerous threats to enter your computer too by being reckless.
