What is could seem like a useful tool for those who do not know how easy it is to bookmark favorite pages to make them easily accessible from the bookmarks bar. However, our malware researchers at say that you should be careful with this featured search website because it is indeed a browser hijacker very similar to all other threats in this so-called Polarity family, including and Polarity Technologies Ltd has become quite infamous for their useless and potentially risky search websites. These hijackers can show up on your system even without your knowledge and along with other malware infections. Since this hijacker can present to you modified search results, it is possible that you click on unreliable ads or links, which could have serious consequences. This is why we suggest that you remove from your browsers if you do not want to cause further system security issues.

Where does come from?

This browser hijacker does not actually have any official page where you could download it or install it directly as a standalone tool. Therefore, it is more likely that you have installed it in questionable ways. For instance, it is possible that you click on a third-party pop-up advertisement that claims to update software or that you need to download a certain plugin or application to be able to see content on the current webpage. You need to remember to always use official websites whenever you want to update or download programs. When offered by a pop-up, you should always rather close the whole browser window to get rid of such an ad instead of clicking on it. However, it is also possible that such an unsafe third-party ad, which can also be a banner, is not generated by a suspicious website (e.g., torrent, freeware, gaming, and betting) but by an adware program or a browser hijacker hiding on your PC.

The bigger issue is definitely when you do not directly install this single hijacker in your browsers but when you drop a bundle of potential threats. Such a bundle can carry all kinds of potentially unwanted programs as well as malicious software installers, such as browser hijackers, adware programs, fake alerts, Trojans, backdoors, and more. Many unsuspecting users actually infect their system this way because they usually rush to get on with the installation. We recommend that whenever possible you always choose the custom or advanced option because otherwise you may not even see the full content of a package. If you notice this browser hijacker in your browsers upon launch, it is quite likely that you will find other threats if you run a reliable malware scanner after you delete

How does work?

This featured search website looks just like any other in this family. The only difference is the featured quick links. This time these are related to social networking pages, such as Facebook and Twitter. Of course, you can also find the usual tools on the fake toolbar, including the search tool, the news link, and the local weather link. These pages can be filled with questionable third-party ads; therefore, it is not advisable to either visit them or clicking on any content there. The same is true for the search results as well even if you use the main search box. Your queries are forwarded to its own web servers first and only then, to a manipulated Yahoo search results page where any content could be risky to click on since there is no way telling which one is reliable and which one is not. You may, for example, click on a third-party ad and directly install another browser hijacker, a bad toolbar, or drop a bundle of threats without even realizing. Another possible scenario is that you get redirected to a fake website operated by cyber criminals. All in all, we recommend that you do not hesitate to remove from your computer if you plan to keep your PC safe.
