How does work?

Did you know that is associated with a company that is linked to hundreds of other browser hijackers? This company is Polarity Technologies Ltd, and it is also responsible for the suspicious and hijackers, both of which are identical to the threat we are discussing right now. All of these hijackers promote links to the same websites, and they all have the “Descargar” tag in the right-top corner of the home page. In the past, this tag was used to represent the names of extensions that the hijackers are associated with, but we have not found an add-on by the name “Descargar” that would be linked to In fact, we do not know if this add-on exists at all. If the hijacker was introduced to you via the add-on, you might have to remove it to get rid of the hijacker itself. Of course, other pieces of software could be involved as well.

First of all, this hijacker redirects you to Yahoo Search, and it does not even matter that this search engine is considered reliable. The creator of the hijacker wants you to trust the information that is provided to you via this engine because sponsored links are likely to be fed via it. The second reason for removing is that it can leak personal information to unknown parties, which, of course, can be exceptionally dangerous. Even if that is not the intention of the creator of the threat, private information can be recorded if you enter it in while using the hijacker. Do you want to put your virtual security at risk for relatively useless services provided to you by a suspicious search tool? We are sure that you do not want that.
