What is

At the moment is most popular in India, although it does not mean it cannot appear on computers of users from other countries. The application may replace user’s browser preferences and show him questionable advertisements from the third party. As a result, it falls under the classification of browser hijackers. If it appears on your browser too and you cannot find a way to get rid of it, we can offer our removal guide available below this report. However, there is more to learn about this suspicious search engine, so we recommend reading the rest of the article before scrolling down. Especially, for users who are facing such threat only for the first time. In the report we will talk about the hijacker’s distribution; thus, reading it might help you keep away from unreliable applications alike the next time.test

Where does come from?

Our researchers believe should travel with adware, potentially unwanted applications, different browser hijackers, or other similar threats. In fact, one such program is known to us as we recently encountered it. The software we have in mind is a browser extension called unTabs. The add-on falls under the category of potentially unwanted programs. Previously it was distributed via Chrome Webstore page, but at the moment of writing, it is no longer available on this website. Applications like the discussed add-on or the browser hijacker can settle in after clicking suspicious pop-up ads or installing programs via bundled setup up files too.

Therefore, to guard the computer against threats similar to, we would advise you to pick more reliable web pages to download installers and pay close attention to all terms or other information provided by the configuration wizard. Plus, it would be smart to do more research before deciding if it is worth to add any new applications. Especially, if the program is suggested as additional software on the setup wizard because if you got the installer from an untrustworthy source, there is a chance the proposed tools could be potentially malicious. Lastly, if you would like to be warned about unreliable software or malicious installers, you should get a legitimate antimalware tool.

How does work? is an application designed to surf the Internet. To provide you results it uses a custom search engine powered by Google. The bad news is there is a chance the browser hijacker could still influence the results by injecting additional advertising content. Given we do not know where such content could come from, we would advise you to be extra cautious with it, because if it appears to originate from potentially malicious web pages, you could endanger the system or your privacy by just clicking the unreliable ad.

For now, there is not a lot more we could say about the browser hijacker as there is not much information about it. has only Privacy Policy and Terms of Use statements, and they do not give a lot of knowledge about the search application’s capabilities. This is another reason why the tool raises our suspicion and if you do not think you can trust it either we recommend eliminating it at once.

How to erase

Since the application might have modified some of the hijacked browser's files you may have to restore them if you wish to delete the threat manually. No need to worry if you have no idea what files we are talking about as they will all be listed in the instructions located at the end of this text and these steps will explain to you what to do. On the other hand, if you prefer erasing the browser hijacker with removal tools, you should install a legitimate antimalware tool instead and do a full system scan. This way you can deal not just with, but also with other unreliable applications that could be on the computer.
