Search.allinoneoffice.net is a threat that only Google Chrome users can encounter. Our specialists believe it should be classified as a browser hijacker since it settles in by altering the browser’s settings. Unfortunately, there is more, as during our research we also discovered the application might inject search results with untrustworthy advertisements coming from various third parties. Because of this, it is advisable to replace Search.allinoneoffice.net with a more reputable search engine, e.g., google.com, search.yahoo.com, and so on. If you do not know how to get rid of this threat, we can guide you through the process via the deletion instructions located below this article. For users who would like to learn more about this browser hijacker before erasing it, we recommend reading our full report first. What’s more, should you need more information about this application, you could leave us a message in the comments section below too.
It looks like Search.allinoneoffice.net might settle in without the user noticing anything. Our specialists say it is most likely because the application could be bundled with a browser extension called All-in-One Office - New Tab, which might also be bundled with potentially unwanted programs; other browser hijackers, adware, and so on. Bundled software is the additional tools that could be installed on the computer automatically, or the user might have the opportunity to review and deselect them on the configuration wizard. Therefore, after launching a setup file, it would be smartest to pick the advanced installation settings and uncheck the suggestions you do not need or stop the installation process if the configuration wizard claims it will add some tools automatically. Another good idea would be to choose only legitimate web pages to get the programs you want as sites like P2P file-sharing networks cannot be trusted and could distribute various threats with bundled installers.
Furthermore, to separate reliable applications from suspicious ones we recommend looking for both expert and user reviews. For example, in this case, the extension that provides Search.allinoneoffice.net has quite a lot of user reviews on Chrome Web Store page. Some of them claim the plugin is dangerous, useless, and invasive. Even more, comments say the plugin is awesome, but given the tool was classified as a browser hijacker and it does not appear to be as useful as it may sound we doubt a lot of users could describe it great. In other words, we believe the comments praising Search.allinoneoffice.net might be fake. Users should also know the application could inject search results with doubtful advertisements from different third parties. We doubt such content would be reviewed to ensure its safety and consequently, there is a chance some part of it might be malicious.
All in all, it may look handy to have the browser hijacker’s provided icons for favorite Google tools below the search box, but we do not think it compensates for the danger you could be putting your system into if you continue browsing with Search.allinoneoffice.net. In fact, in our opinion, the application’s provided links are entirely useless because if you make your homepage google.com, you could access all Google programs through the “Google Apps” icon located on the top-right web page’s corner. Provided you do not want to risk your computer’s safety for this browser hijacker we recommend deleting it with the instructions located below this text or with a trustworthy removal tool of your choice.
