Search.hwildforscrapbooking.com

Polarity Technologies Ltd. is a company developing software and search tools. One of the newest products they have released is Search.hwildforscrapbooking.com. It does not differ much from such older products as Search.yourmapscenter.com, Search.youremailnow.com, and Search.yourclassifiedscenter.com, so specialists working at anti-spyware-101.com have managed to analyze it very quickly. Unfortunately, it has turned out that it is not a legitimate search provider. To be frank, this does not surprise our specialists at all because previously-released Polarity search tools cannot be called legitimate search engines either. According to our researchers, it should be called a browser hijacker instead because it can change browsers’ settings without permission. It has been noticed that it usually sets itself as a new homepage on Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome, but it might change the default search tool as well. No matter it has been set as your new homepage only, or it has changed your default search engine too, you need to remove Search.hwildforscrapbooking.com from your browsers because this search tool might cause you problems. The next paragraph will tell you more about it, so read it carefully if you still cannot decide what to do with it. Read more »

If this is the case, it is strange that two identical tools that serve in the same manner have been created. Our research team at Anti-Spyware-101.com strongly recommends deleting both of these hijackers, and not just because they look identical. It was found that these threats can redirect users to third-party pages without their permission, as well as employ cookies to record and share data.
