What is Home.mapsnt.com?

The sudden appearance of Home.mapsnt.com does not indicate anything positive. It simply shows that the entrance of the browser hijacker infection was successful. Home.mapsnt.com has been developed on the same template as other Polarity Technologies Ltd. products, for example, Search.yourpackagesnow.com and Search.searchlttrn.com, so it did not take long for researchers working at anti-spyware-101.com to find out that it is one of those untrustworthy search providers. They say that it might even expose users to potential threats if they use it fearlessly because it might present them with untrustworthy links leading to third-party websites. If you do not want this to happen to you, remove Search.searchlttrn.com from all your browsers today and start using another more trustworthy search provider. It will take some time to get rid of this browser hijacker, but we are sure you will successfully eliminate it from all affected browsers yourself. The next two paragraphs will explain to you why it is so important to get rid of it as soon as possible, so read them carefully if you cannot decide easily whether or not to keep it.test

What does Home.mapsnt.com do?

Search.searchlttrn.com is not a trustworthy search provider even though it does not differ much from other search tools the way it looks. It not only has a search box and returns search results to users, but it also contains a toolbar with quick-access buttons opening Facebook, Amazon, Bing Maps, and other popular websites with the single click. Unfortunately, these two features do not make it a legitimate search provider. Researchers say that it cannot be called a trustworthy search tool because modified search results appear among those it displays to users. No matter what search query you enter into the search box, you might encounter these untrustworthy search results. They are displayed to users expecting that they will click on them and visit promoted pages. It is not very likely that you will find anything you are searching for on these websites. In the worst-case scenario, you might even end up on a malicious website. We do not say that this will definitely happen to all the people using Home.mapsnt.com as a default search tool, but you have no guarantees that this will not happen to you.

There is one more thing you need to know about Home.mapsnt.com if you continue using it as your default search tool. It has turned out that this search tool also collects information about users. Like some other search providers, it records non-personally identifiable information, e.g. geographic location, IP address, the type of browser, etc. automatically, but it is not the main problem here. As research has shown, next to details that cannot identify users personally, this search provider also records personally-identifiable information. Luckily, it cannot access any passwords, logins, or banking credentials. It only records personal details used as search queries, i.e. details entered in the search box by the user. Therefore, if you decide to continue using Home.mapsnt.com as your default search tool, you should, at least, not enter any personal information in its search box.

Where does Home.mapsnt.com come from?

We are sure you have not set Home.mapsnt.com on your browsers voluntarily. Research has shown that this browser hijacker usually travels bundled with third-party applications, so you must have allowed this infection to enter your system by installing a malicious software bundle too. There are hundreds of malicious applications that can slither onto users’ PCs illegally, so you must be very careful from now on. Actually, it would be best to enable security software so that new threats could not illegally show up on the system.
