How does Websrch.mobi work?

The interface of websrch.mobi/search is pretty clean, and you are introduced to a search field as well as three buttons below it. These buttons are entitled “Home Portal,” “Google Search,” and “Bing Search.” If you click the first button, you are redirected to portal.airfind.com, a website that is meant to provide you with a list of news stories and websites. This page displays a search engine that redirects to Bing Search. This is a reoccurring theme. The Google Search button actually represents portal.airfind.com/google-cse, which is a Google Custom Search tool controlled by websrch.mobi/search and AirFind Corp., who is the developer. The Bing Search button opens portal.airfind.com/search?provider=bing&s=b, and search queries made through this engine are, of course, taken to bing.com/search. The search tool offered via the home page of Websrch.mobi also redirects search queries to Bing Search. So, should you delete the search engine because it, obviously, promotes Bing? While that is not a solid reason, you need to think if a search engine that does not appear to offer unique or original services is worth keeping around.

Although Websrch.mobi appears to offer relatively useful services, you have to consider the security risks you might face while using it. Are there any? We cannot know for sure, but the Privacy Policy offered by AirFind certainly has some interesting information. For example, it is revealed in the statement that personally identifiable information is recorded when users choose to reveal it, but it can be obtained from undisclosed third parties as well. Ultimately, you might have no control over what kind of data is gathered by the company, and that is something to think about. It is also stated that information can be used to show “promotions and special offers,” which suggests that Websrch.mobi could show ads via its search tool. Since we cannot guarantee that these ads could be trusted, and you might be irritated by ads and sponsored links intercepting your browsing experience, you might choose to delete the search tool. Ultimately, it is not yet known if or not it is safe for you to be using this tool, and, considering that there are tons of more reliable and more beneficial tools, you really should consider removal.
