Fanatics Search

What is Fanatics Search?

If you are not cautious, you might install malware and unreliable or unwanted programs without even realizing it. Fanatics Search has an official installer, but because this installer does not present the add-on in an attractive manner, it is most likely that third-party installers are used for the distribution. These installers might attach the extension to more desirable programs, or it could be lost in the middle of all other programs bundled together. All in all, regardless of how you install the application, it is recommended that you remove it from your web browser. At the time of analysis, it was compatible with Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome browsers only. The extension was also available on official Chrome and Firefox app stores: and Without a doubt, it might be easier to handle the situation of the only thing you need to do is delete Fanatics Search. That being said, make sure you eliminate all unwanted and malicious threats that exist on your operating system.testtest

How does Fanatics Search work?

Fanatics Search was created by Aztec Media/ztek.apps. Our research team is already familiar with this company because it is responsible for BlpSearch, Flixtab Search, Movies Fanatic, and many other strange extensions and search tools. Some of them are even classified as browser hijackers that require removal. We cannot say that Fanatics Search absolutely requires removal, but you certainly cannot benefit from using it, and so there is no point in keeping it. The only purpose of the extension is to change the default search provider, and if you install it, is automatically set as the default. While that is done silently, the change is not secretive, and the installer should warn you about it. Of course, if the search engine is introduced to you as a highly beneficial tool, you might think that you will find the best search results using it. Will you? Of course, you will not. In fact, you will be redirected to Yahoo Search, and the results will, at best, be completely regular. Unfortunately, they could also be modified, and if additional links or ads are included, the search engine might become unpredictable and unreliable.

Some users might not even notice the redirecting caused by Fanatics Search. That might happen if Yahoo Search was set as the default search provider prior to the installation of the extension. Luckily, the add-on creates an icon at the top of the browser, next to the address bar, and so it is not possible to miss it altogether. Of course, you do not even need to have Fanatics Search installed to be exposed to the suspicious search engine. According to our research, users can be redirected to this search engine, and when keywords are entered into it, the results are shown via Yahoo Search too. Overall, whether or not you have the extension installed, we do not advise interacting with the search tool at all. And since there is nothing else that the extension can help you with, you should delete it without any delay.
