It was mentioned earlier Search.searchtmpn.com is not an entirely new threat but a clone of other similar browser hijackers, e.g., Search.hmylocaltransit.co, Search.directionsandmap.com, Search.searchtmp.com, Search.searchbrs.com, and so on. Same as the mentioned applications, we believe this one should also be spread via doubtful pop-up advertisements or with bundled setup files available on unreliable file-sharing web pages, such as filewin.com, malavida.es etc. This is why we would advise you to avoid such sites if you visit or download setup files from them. A better option would be to download the programs you need from their official web pages. Of course, first, it is crucial to make sure a reputable company develops the tool since browser hijackers, adware, and other suspicious applications can have official web pages just the same.
Furthermore, if the browser hijacker is installed, it should change default browser’s search provider, start page, or new tab page with Search.searchtmpn.com. Therefore, the user might see it every time he launches the browser, starts a new search, or opens a new tab. As annoying these changes may look like, there might be a more significant problem with this new search engine. Our specialists say the results displayed by it could be gathered with a modified version of search.yahoo.com. Sadly, because of this, there is a chance the results could differ from the ones collected by the original Yahoo search engine.
All things considered, it does not look like Search.searchtmpn.com can be trusted, especially when there is a chance it could promote potentially harmful content. As a result, it seems to us, it would be risky to use it, so instead, we advise replacing the application with a more trustworthy search engine, e.g., google.com. To eliminate the browser hijacker manually you should take a look at our recommended deletion steps located at the end of this text. Needless to say, if you worry this task might be a bit too difficult, you could acquire a reliable security tool instead. Installing it would not only allow you to erase the browser hijacker faster and clean the system from other possible threats but also help you maintain the system clean in the future.
