There is possibly not one day passing by without a newly emerging useless featured search page like Search.dailybibleverses.co from Polarity Technologies Ltd. This company may have created over a hundred search websites to generate easy money through third-party promotion. This is indeed a browser hijacker that may show up as your home page in your main browsers, including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome. This hijacker is practically identical to most of its predecessors, such as Search.pe-cmf.com, Search.myonlinecalendar.co, and Search.hdailysocialweb.com. Although you may be a religious person and would like to have quick links in your browser to lead you to bible study websites and ones offering daily verses, we recommend that you use the built-in bookmarking function of your browsers if you want to reach preferred websites with one click. This hijacker may expose you to potentially unreliable third-party advertisements and links that may make your computer more vulnerable to cyber attacks and possible damage. Therefore, we recommend that you remove Search.dailybibleverses.co from your PC.
We have found one official page that promotes this browser hijacker as a browser extension, and that is the Chrome web store at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/daily-bible-verses/neoihbmgijigopmdimphcabkdipkbhkj. This page clearly shows that in the past half year only 3,100 computer users have install it. Obviously, it is not a popular tool. But we do not even believe that too many users would install such an extension knowingly; it is more likely that it crawls onto your system silently or in a concealed manner.
Free software bundles are an excellent way for such a browser hijacker and other malware infections to sneak onto your PC. Cyber villains know how to create misleading installers that most unsuspecting users would simply let install the whole package instead of opting out of all the unwanted components. This is why you should always select the custom or advanced option when offered because that may be your only way to see what you are installing apart from the main "attraction." You can easily drop a bundle filled with potentially unwanted programs, adware programs, browser hijackers, Trojans, keyloggers, and more if you download free software from suspicious torrent or shareware pages. Another way for you to end up with such a lot is to click on the wrong third-party ad. This can happen when you land on suspicious websites that promote a lot of annoying third-party content but when your system is infected with adware, you are never really safe surfing the web. We suggest that you scan your PC with a trustworthy malware scanner after you delete Search.dailybibleverses.co so that you can have a picture about the severity of your security level.
This search engine page features a fake toolbar with quick links to bible-related pages, including blueletterbible.org/study.cfm and american.bible/daily-bible-reading, apart from the usual search tool, the local weather link, and the news link. You can also find a row of thumbnail links below the search box, which also take you to the same sites as well as Amazon, Gmail, and Yahoo mail. Below this line of thumbnails, you can see a verse or a quote from the bible. We do not advise you to run a web search on this page though because it may show you modified search results. All your queries are first forwarded to its own web server and then, to Yahoo. This is how the Yahoo search results page may contain potentially unreliable third-party ads and links that this browser hijacker promotes for revenue. Since you could infect your system or cause more serious issues by being scammed on malicious pages after clicking on content offered by this browser hijacker, we recommend that you remove Search.dailybibleverses.co right away from your browsers.
Our experience with this family and our tests show that this hijacker may only affect your home page setting. Thus, it could be enough for you to restore the home pages of your browsers in order to eliminate this threat source. Please follow our guide below if you like to do things manually. If, for any reason, this would not be enough, you can always reset your browsers but keep in mind that you could lose all your settings and preferences. If you would like to defend your system more efficiently and automatically, we advise you to employ a reliable anti-malware program, such as SpyHunter. But do not forget to keep all your programs up-to-date to avoid possible cyber attacks exploiting outdated software bugs.
