Search engine and its accompanying browser extension were made a company called Aztec Media inc., which is allegedly based in Limassol, Cyprus. We have our doubts about this company and think that the name can be fake because we did not find any reliable information about its true origins. It appears that this company’s search engine was good enough for the Chrome Web Store that still features mysafesearch. Apart from that, you can get this extension from its dedicated website at Mysafesearch.net. However, the reason we have classified this search engine as a browser hijacker is the fact that its developers have made arrangements to bundle it with third-party installers that inject the browser extension into the web browser without your knowledge or consent.
Apparently, mysafesearch.net is compatible with Google Chrome only. Its job is to replace the homepage automatically, and new tab pages address when you install it. Our research shows that Search.mysafesearch.net is undoubtedly a highly unreliable search engine. It redirects all search queries to http://feed.snowbitt.com/?publisher=mymediasyn&ts=sy&barcodeid=51586999&searchtype=ds&q=asddas&type=MM_100 and then to Yahoo.com. As a result, you get modified, ad-supported search results of unverified legitimacy. Also, http://feed.snowbitt.com can redirect you to pages other than Yahoo.com. Sometimes it can redirect you to promoted website directly. We are concerned with the fact that this hijacker can promote rather questionable websites that can redirect you to malicious sites that can jeopardize your computer’s security with malicious software.
