What is Search.searchemaila.com?
Search.searchemaila.com is a search engine that will become visible on your browsers if you ever install the extension from accessyourmails.info or it somehow gets onto your computer without your consent. People who download and install it from its official website usually do that because they think that it can really enable them to login to their emails faster and thus help to save some time. In other words, people install this piece of software expecting that it will act in a beneficial way; however, not all of them know that a new search tool Search.searchemaila.com will replace their homepages and search engines if they install it. As our researchers have found, Search.searchemaila.com will change your default search engine (only on Mozilla Firefox), homepage, and the New Tab page, which means that you will see this search tool instead of your preferred website every time you launch your browser. There is only one way to make it gone – you have to find and delete the browser extension promoting Search.searchemaila.com. Continue reading to find out how to remove an undesirable extension from all the browsers.
What does Search.searchemaila.com do?
No one can deny that Search.searchemaila.com seems to be a perfectly decent search tool. First, it has a search box in the middle of the start page, and it provides users with quick access buttons that enable them to open Gmail, Yahoo!, Hotmail, Google Maps, and check the local weather forecast with the click of a button. You will see all those buttons at the top; however, they are not the only ones provided for users. Below the search box, six other buttons are placed. They lead to Facebook, YouTube, Gmail, Yahoo!, Amazon, and Google Maps. Of course, you do not need to have this particular extension installed on your PC to be able to open them, so it can be said that the Access Your Mails extension is not as useful as it claims to be since it, basically, changes the settings of all the browsers only.
Unfortunately, we cannot say that it is very safe to use Search.searchemaila.com as the default search engine as well. Even though Search.searchemaila.com returns Yahoo! search results, according to our researchers, a bunch of ads might be placed on the same search results page together with reliable search results. They appear there because the developer of the Access Your Mails extension participates in an advertising campaign and gets money for driving traffic to third-party websites. As not all of these websites it promotes can be called trustworthy, and nobody is going to protect you from harm, you risk experiencing security-related problems by using Search.searchemaila.com. Generally speaking, it might redirect you to a website with bad content one day.
BY USING THE SERVICES, YOU ARE CONSENTING TO GRANT Email Access™ 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
Unfortunately, it will never stop acting this way, so your only chance to protect your privacy is to fully delete Search.searchemaila.com from all the browsers.
Where does Search.searchemaila.com come from?
According to specialists, only a small number of users download the extension promoting Search.searchemaila.com from its official website. The majority of people notice that their browsers’ settings have been changed after they click on a malicious pop-up advertisement shown by malware installed on the computer, but, of course, this undesirable software might find other ways to enter computers as well, for example, it might travel in software bundles. Any other undesirable program will not be able to enter your PC again only if you install reliable security software, so we want to encourage you to do that right now.
