What does do?

The first reason cannot be considered a trustworthy search provider is the fact that it changes all browsers’ settings without the users’ knowledge. Most probably, it will become your new homepage and default search tool if the browser hijacker promoting it ever infiltrates your computer successfully. Unfortunately, it is only one of several reasons it is considered untrustworthy by researchers. According to our specialists, its biggest drawback is that some search results it displays to users when they enter a search query might be modified. Because of their presence, it will take more time to find information you are searching for. Additionally, these modified search results might redirect you to untrustworthy pages one day. It is not very easy to recognize those modified search results and avoid them because they appear among ordinary Yahoo! search results, so you will eventually click on them if you use as your default search tool. Of course, we do not say that all users who use it will end up on untrustworthy websites and be exposed to potential threats.

The presence of the modified search results is a big drawback, but it is, unfortunately, not the only one. What else you should know about is that it collects information about users. If you check its Privacy Policy, you will find out what it is capable of. Just like similar search tools, it records non-personally identifiable information, for example, the operating system type, geographic location, and IP address. Unfortunately, it does not mean that it cannot access any personal details. If you insert personal information into the search box, it will be recorded together with other search queries. Since the recorded data might be shared with third parties, you should not use personal details as search queries. Actually, it would be best to stop using to perform web searches completely.

Where does come from?

If your homepage and search tool have been replaced by out of the blue, it must be true that you have encountered a browser hijacker. They are usually distributed together with other programs. That is, they travel bundled and, consequently, manage to infiltrate users’ computers unnoticed. As for the browser hijacker, it should be spread with free software from such websites as,, and Of course, a list of websites might be longer.
