Yoga Search

What is Yoga Search?

Yoga Search is not an application that should not be active on your operating system. That is so because it happens to be yet another potentially unwanted program. Such classification has been made by malware experts at Anti-Spyware-101.com because of this application functions in a suspicious and intrusive manner. It can easily alter your web browser's default settings without any notification or authorization. Due to this program, surfing the web can become a much more annoying and frustrating experience, to put it lightly. What is more concerning is the fact that this program could prove to be rather dangerous as well since it could expose your operating system to devious web content. To find out more about the devious inner workings of this potentially unwanted program, make sure to read the rest of our report. To help you delete Yoga Search, we also present a detailed removal guide below our article.

What does Yoga Search do?

At the moment Yoga Search only affects the Google Chrome web browser. Even though that is the case at the moment, users that prefer other browsers should be aware of the fact that developers of this intrusive program might launch its updated version that could be compatible with other popular browsers. Once the potentially unwanted program enters your operating system, it installs a suspicious third-party browser extension and creates a fake Google Chrome shortcut icon that has an edited Target line. Due to all of this, you will notice a change of your default search engine in your browser. Unfortunately, you are not notified about this alteration in any way. Even though it might seem like an insignificant change, in reality, it will have a profoundly negative impact on the way you experience the web. That is so because you will no longer have a chance to use your default search engine for your online queries; instead, you will be forced to use a questionable one every single time, you will browse the Internet. It should be quite obvious that surfing the web will become a much more annoying and frustrating experience than you are used to. What is even more bothersome is the fact that the search engine could present irrelevant and sponsored results instead of useful one. To restore your browser's default settings once and for all, you need to execute a complete removal of Yoga Search. To do that in just a few simple steps, make sure to use the detailed instructions that we provide below.

As mentioned, there is more to Yoga Search than meets the eye. During the analysis, our research team has noticed that in some instances, the newly assigned search engine could present you with results hosting redirect links. That means that by clicking on a seemingly harmless result, you could end up on suspicious and even malicious websites. For example, you could end up on a web page that runs an arbitrary code execution exploit. If that happens, your PC could get infected with some unknown malware because the exploit in question can trigger a remote installation of a devious program without the user's consent. In other situations, you could come across results that might lead you to hoax online stores that are crafted for a single reason - to steal your credit card data or other sensitive information. While results that host such dangerous redirect links do not occur often, the possibility of coming across one remains. Thus, it should not be surprising that our malware experts advise you to refrain from using the suspicious search engine. Make sure to perform a complete removal of Yoga Search at the very same instance that it is found up and running on your personal computer.
