Where does come from?

There are a few ways for this annoying browser hijacker to appear on your system, or more precisely, in your browsers. The most likely way is that you click on third-party contents that you should avoid. This means that you could be exposed to unreliable third-party ads, including in-text links, banners, and pop-up advertisements. These can all drop a whole bundle of malware threats onto your computer when you click on them. But they may also redirect you to malicious websites where you could infect your PC with this hijacker as well as other malicious programs. You can encounter such bad advertisements when your PC is infected with adware or other malware programs, such as browser hijackers and even potentially unwanted programs can sometimes display unreliable content.

Another possibility is that you land on shady file-sharing and gaming websites that host a number of unsafe third-party contents. These could be advertisements posing as buttons or other contents seemingly being part of the page itself, such as download links and next or previous-page links. Clicking on any of these can also drop a malicious bundle onto your machine. As you can see now, there is a high probability that there could be several malicious programs on your computer right now. But do not worry. All you need to do is delete and use a reliable malware scanner to detect all other potential threat sources, which you will need to eliminate as well to make sure that your PC is clean.

How does work?

This is a very simple search page indeed with a simple search box in the middle. There are no fake toolbars or quick links either, no thumbnails leading to popular websites. This search page looks totally like Google since it is a customized Google page indeed. What you also realize if you are an experienced computer user is that there are no links to legal documents, such as the Privacy Policy or the Terms of Use. This is rather suspicious and should raise a red flag right away to keep you away from this page and using it altogether.

This browser hijacker may collect information about you and your browsing habits that could be used to target you with customized search results. Unfortunately, this can lead to being scammed by cyber criminals who could misuse this information to lure you onto their vicious websites. Ending up on a fake online shop, for example, could cost you a lot of money indeed if you reveal your banking details to criminals. When you search with this questionable search engine, your queries get redirected to and you will feel that you are safe because it looks like you are on a Google results page. But be prepared to click on potentially unreliable third-party ads and sponsored links there that may come from crooks. If you do not want to experience first-hand what may happen when you click on corrupted content, we advise you to remove right away.
