What is Search.yourrecipesnow.com?
Easy-to-make recipes should become easily accessible with the help of Search.yourrecipesnow.com, but, in reality, you should not rely on this suspicious piece of software for anything. Sure, it does provide easy-access links to foodnetwork.com, simplyrecipes.com, epicurious.com, and yummly.com websites, but that is all that it is useful for, and you can easily attach links to these sites to your bookmarks bar. Most users acquire this suspicious search tool along with the Your Recipes Now by SaferBrowser extension that supposedly can provide you with thousands of recipes from the New Tab. The extension is not beneficial at all because its only purpose is to introduce you to the search provider that links to the aforementioned websites. It is possible that the developer of this software earns a commission for boosting traffic to these websites, but that is not why we advise removing Search.yourrecipesnow.com from your web browsers.

How does Search.yourrecipesnow.com work?
If you have not acquired the suspicious Your Recipes Now add-on along with Search.yourrecipesnow.com from yourrecipesnow.com/Recipes or the Chrome web-store, it is possible that you have used an unreliable software installer. We have seen other hijackers from this family, including Search.email-dhp.com, Search.easymoviesaccess.com, and Search.easyradioaccess.com being distributed with the help of misleading pop-ups. They could also be spread via unreliable software bundles controlled by malicious parties. If you have acquired the hijacker and the related extension using a potentially dangerous source, immediately scan your operating system just to make sure that more dangerous threats are not running on your computer. Search.yourrecipesnow.com is not considered the most dangerous threat, but it can be installed without permission, and this is a red flag. Chrome and Internet Explorer users will find this hijacker corrupting their homepages, and Firefox users might also find it set as their default search provider. In reality, this search tool cannot be trusted when it comes to web browsing because it actually redirects search queries to a popular search engine, Yahoo, where the results might be modified.
Search.yourrecipesnow.com can read and modify your data on the sites you land on. It can also modify your browsing history. Information about this is provided to users when they download the extension from the official website or the Chrome web-store. However, this information does not include a warning about the hijacker, and unless users notice the disclaimer next to the download link, they might be surprised to discover Search.yourrecipesnow.com. For example, on Chrome, this hijacker appears as the New Tab Search, and the startup page is set to open the New Tab instead of your homepage, which is the doing of the hijacker. If you use this search tool to browse the web, you will be redirected to Yahoo, and the search results on this engine could be modified by the hijacker to include sponsored links. Simultaneously, this infection tracks your virtual activity to see which sites and ads you interact with or what products and services interest you. This data can then be shared with undisclosed partners who could use it to their advantage. For example, advertisers could use this information to design more alluring offers, and unreliable parties could use it when developing scams.
