What is looks like one of the Polarity Technologies Ltd browser hijackers. Our researchers confirmed it after taking a look at the software’s Privacy Policy and End User License Agreement documents. Not to mention, the application looks almost the same as the other browser hijackers from this company that we have already tested earlier. All of its clones provide a search box and a toolbar containing links to various web pages. In this case, the threat offers links to sites providing news, reports, weather forecast, and so on. Even though such links could seem to be useful, we would not recommend leaving on your browser. It might also display questionable advertisements containing links to third-party websites, e.g., scam websites, sites suggesting other threats alike, and more. It seems to us it would be smarter to stay away from such material. If you think the same, we advise you to get rid of this suspicious application with the instructions located below or a legitimate antimalware tool.test

Where does come from?

Same as other of its clones, the browser hijacker might be spread with bundled setup files located on questionable file-sharing web pages, such as,, and so on. Moreover, our researchers at think the application could be bundled with similar threats, e.g., potentially unwanted programs, adware, and other programs alike. Thus, if you suspect you received this search engine by launching a bundled setup file from an untrustworthy site, you should make sure you did not install any other doubtful software together. Besides, we could suggest staying away from suspicious sites or tools in the future and installing a legitimate antimalware tool that could help you recognize potential threats and guard the computer against them.

How does work?

It appears to be after it is installed the application should change user’s default search provider and start page with Most likely, by doing so, it seeks to ensure the user would browse with the browser hijacker’s presented search engine. What’s more, it is entirely possible that with the search results the new search engine might display third-party advertisements and from the users’ clicks, its creators could generate advertising revenue. The bad news is it is doubtful anyone would review third-party ads, which means there is a chance some part of them might be possibly harmful. To give you an example, the advertisements from the third parties could originate from web pages distributing malicious programs, sites offering to participate in fictitious lotteries or surveys, and so on.

The reason we believe the application might show ads and some of them could be possibly harmful is the information we found on the software’s Privacy Policy and End User License Agreement papers. For example, the first document says could gather user’s anonymous data “to present you with offers for other products, offerings, programs, features and/or services.” Plus, the second mentioned paper says the browser hijacker’s creators take no responsibility for any third-party content, including “third-party software or app, and any data accessed therefrom.” We do not claim the presented search engine will necessarily introduce you to malicious ads, but it looks like there is such a chance and we do not think this tool is worth taking any risks.

How to erase

For those who would not like to see on their browser anymore, we advise deleting it right away. There are a couple of possible options to eliminate it. First of all the user could remove by manually erasing all files modified or created by it. Of course, the instructions available at the end of this paragraph will explain how to achieve this. As for the users who would like to use automatic features, they could install a legitimate antimalware tool, scan the system, and then just erase the browser hijacker by pressing the deletion button.
