What is Yarhoot.com?

Yarhoot.com tries to create a good impression about itself: it contains interesting articles under such categories as business, tech, gaming, entertainment, lifestyle, sports, and world. On top of that, it enables users to search for the information using its search box located at the top of the page. Yarhoot.com definitely cannot be called a malicious page that can directly cause harm to the computer; however, it does not mean that you necessarily need to keep it set on all your browsers if you find it quite annoying. It is, especially, advisable to eliminate it from browsers if it has been set there without your permission. Think twice before letting Yarhoot.com stay if you have agreed with the changes yourself because security specialists cannot guarantee that it is a website that is fully reliable and can cause no harm. Read the rest of the report and decide yourself what to do with it.test

What does Yarhoot.com do?

Specialists do not say that Yarhoot.com is an extremely harmful website; however, it still cannot be called fully trustworthy due to several drawbacks it has. First, users usually cannot explain why they see it each time they open their Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox, meaning that not all the users set Yarhoot.com willingly as their homepage. Second, the interesting content, i.e. news and articles on various topics, it provides users with might not be the only ones you see. Dubious websites like Yarhoot.com might display promotional links too, so you might see them on your screen as well. They might be displayed for users to promote certain third-party websites. It might be true that the developer of Yarhoot.com even receives money for improving the traffic rate of these pages. If you see ads, for example, when you enter a search query to find the information on the web, ignore them completely because clicking on these ads might result in the redirection to a third-party website. Since not all these websites are reputable, this might quickly result in the emergence of security-related problems.

A bunch of different websites users find set on their browsers without their consent also do not respect the privacy of users and might quickly violate it if they let them stay. Therefore, specialists at anti-spyware-101.com have made a decision to check the Privacy Policy document of Yarhoot.com too to find out what it has to say about the collection of information. Unfortunately, the researchers’ hypothesis has been confirmed - Yarhoot.com is capable of recording personal (!) information about users. It does that only when users voluntarily provide this information (at least, it is said so in this document). On top of that, users are informed that the gathered data will only be used to provide users with accurate and well-targeted services. There are no guarantees that this information will not end up in the hands of bad people, so it would be a sin to let it record all these details and do not do anything about that.

Where does Yarhoot.com come from?

In the opinion of researchers, there are two reasons users see Yarhoot.com when they open their browsers. First, they might be infected with a browser hijacker hao123.com, and it might cause constant redirections to Yarhoot.com. Second, users might have this suspicious website set on their browsers because they have installed a “package” of software from a third-party website and agreed by doing that with the changes. At the time of writing, the majority of users who have discovered Yarhoot.com set on their browsers live in Egypt, Algeria, and Indonesia, but, of course, this website might become visible on your browsers no matter where you live. You are the only one who can make decisions here, so it is up to you what to do (i.e. remove or keep it) with this website you have discovered on your browsers.

How do I remove Yarhoot.com?

Important changes are not applied in order to set Yarhoot.com on browsers, so it should not be hard to get rid of this undesirable website too. Specialists say that this page will leave browsers alone after resetting all of them one by one to their default settings. Of course, it is not the only way to get rid of it – it can be deleted automatically with the help of an automatic scanner as well.
