What is

A new search engine set on browsers out of the blue can mean only one thing – there is a browser hijacker on the system. Users usually do not notice how these threats enter their systems because they travel bundled, so we are not surprised at all that you cannot explain why you see each time you open your Internet Explorer/Mozilla Firefox/Google Chrome as well. This web page is made to look like a legitimate search provider, but it is surely not trustworthy even though the interface it has suggests differently. Since it is not a search tool that can be trusted, we suggest removing from browsers as soon as possible. When it is no longer set as your homepage/default search tool, you could set a new page you like as your homepage and default search provider. If you still cannot understand why the search provider you see set on your browsers is untrustworthy, you should read the next paragraph of this article too – you will find all its drawbacks listed there. If you arrive at a final decision to eliminate it, you should read the last paragraph carefully too because it contains all the information you need to know about its removal.test

What does do?

We can distinguish several reasons why has been placed into the category of untrustworthy search tools. First, it can replace the existing homepage/search tool on all browsers without the user’s knowledge, as you already know. Second, if you use the search tool promoted, the chances are high that you will be presented with the modified search results. Yes, this search tool might display them next to ordinary search results even though it is powered by Google. The biggest problem associated with the modified search results shown by is that they might redirect users to pages with untrustworthy software on them. We do not say that all promoted websites are dangerous, but they will redirect you to third-party pages with every click on them, so it is only a question of time when you will be taken to a page with a malicious content. The presence of the modified search results is not the only reason this search tool is called untrustworthy. You should not use this Israeli search tool also because it gathers information about users. It should not record any information that can identify you personally unless you enter it as a search query. Instead, such dubious search tools as usually record the so-called non-personally identifiable information, including a user’s IP address, search queries, websites visited, and some technical details about his/her computer. Theoretically, this recorded information might be shared with third parties, so if we were you, we would replace with another more trustworthy search provider as soon as possible.

Where does come from?

We are not clairvoyants, so we cannot tell you exactly how this infection has entered your system, but it is very likely that it has entered bundled with third-party software. Also, specialists say that you could have installed it on your PC by simply clicking once on a malicious pop-up promoting it. You have not managed to protect your system this time, but it does not mean that the history has to repeat itself – install a security application after eliminating the browser hijacker promoting so that similar infections could not enter the system and apply the undesirable changes again.
