Untrustworthy search tools usually look like reputable search providers these days. It seems that they try to fool users into letting them stay on their browsers. No matter how hard such search providers try to convince you that they generate improved search results and can enhance the web searching/browsing experience to a great extent, do not trust them. We will tell you a secret how to recognize a potentially dangerous search provider – these are usually such search tools which are set on users’ web browsers without permission.
