Trusting Search.searchgtp.com is a dangerous game. This seemingly harmless search tool can silently track every move you make online, and data you disclose while browsing the web could be stored and shared by the creator of this browser hijacker. Furthermore, the search service offered by this hijacker is exceptionally untrustworthy. Unfortunately, not everyone realizes that right away, and, in fact, there are signals indicating that this hijacker is untrustworthy even before you let it in. Which browser was corrupted by this threat on your operating system? If it is Internet Explorer, you will need to remove an application via Control Panel. If it is Firefox or Chrome, you will delete Search.searchgtp.com by erasing an undesirable extension. Most likely, it is the extension that you chose to install, and the hijacker came as a surprise. The thing is that the allegedly useful extension is the hijacker, and it serves no other purpose than to change your browser’s settings.

“Get Tracker Package” is the extension that is associated with Search.searchgtp.com. It is identical to other extensions named “Track Package” and “Track Package Now,” both of which were developed by Polarity Technologies Ltd too. These extensions represent hijackers, and another one we need to mention is Search.searchtmpn.com. This hijacker belongs to a vast family of threats, but it is important in our situation because it is identical to Search.searchgtp.com. Multiple copies of the same tool is never a good sign, and you can learn about that, of course, only if you research the tool before installing it. If you install the extension willingly, you should also notice information about the changes that would be initiated if you went along with the installation. These changes, of course, include homepage and default search provider replacement and the hijacking of the New Tab. An extension that is meant to help you track packages should have nothing to do with how you browse the web, and that is another sign that should make you stop and think if installing the add-on is the right move. Of course, it is not, and that is why we are discussing the removal of Search.searchgtp.com and Get Tracker Package.

What do you think about the search tool offered via Search.searchgtp.com? You might trust it because it redirects to Yahoo Search at search.yahoo.com. First of all, the redirecting is illegal as you are not informed about it beforehand, and that is a reason enough to delete this hijacker. Unfortunately, that is not the biggest offense. As you enter search keywords into the Search.searchgtp.com search field and then get redirected, the results are modified, and sponsored links might be shown at the forefront. By interacting with these results, you might be helping the creator of the hijacker to earn money. Also, you could be redirected to malicious websites or sites that could route to such websites. Even if the sponsored links are harmless, you do not want to interact with them because the cookies of unknown third parties could be placed to spy on you because of it. The bottom line is that the search tool is not reliable, and the sooner you get rid of it, the better.

Though you might have acquired Get Tracker Package along with Search.searchgtp.com via the Chrome store at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/get-tracker-package/mhlgkbpahibkhanlfdkcgbldpjfejccc or get.trackerpackages.co, you might also have acquired it packaged with malware. In this situation, a legitimate malware scanner can be a great instrument because it can help you identify other threats that require removal. If you cannot delete Search.searchgtp.com and other infections yourself, you can trust a legitimate anti-malware program to do it for you. If the suspicious hijacker is the only threat you need to focus on, follow the instructions below. Note that the hijacker is deleted as you remove the add-on.
