What is Yaimo.com?

Yaimo.com is a search engine which is supposed to help you get the best search results. Unfortunately, this ad-supported search provider is not as useful as it may seem. Yaimo.com is distributed by freeware, and it is crucial to be very vigilant when installing any freeware. By reading the license agreement and/or privacy statement, you get the chance to find out what changes may be made within the system. We have categorized Yaimo.com as a browser hijacker because it replaces the home page of Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox and modifies browser shortcuts by adding its link to the Target line so that Yaimo.com is loaded even if you set a new startup page. The fact that some unauthorized alterations are made within your computer should not be disregarded, and, if you do care about your online privacy, you should take immediate actions to restore the former settings.testtesttest 100% FREE spyware scan and

How does Yaimo.com work?

As mentioned above, Yaimo.com displays third-party advertisements. All those advertisements that you encounter on the startup page and the search results page belong to third-party websites, which are not controlled by the developers of the search engine.

Yaimo.com displays advertisements promoting online games, body building programs, software programs, online scanners, and the like. Not all of the advertisements displayed are malicious; you may find ads promoting well-known products but you should be aware of the danger and take measures to protect the computer from malware.

We recommend that you remove Yaimo.com from the computer as soon as you can because this search engine uses cookies and other tracking techniques to monitor your online behavior. For example, the program responsible for the promotion of the search engine, may add an extension called Yaimo to your Google Chrome. The browser extension is capable of monitoring your online actions; it can record clicks, impressions, browser history, browser settings, time spent on various websites, etc. The developers of the search engine and extension are interested in your browsing patterns so that they can enhance the quality of the service, and, for example, provide you with more relevant advertisements.
