Although Search.searchwatchytsn.com is promoted as a powerful tool for searching the web, its presence might have devastating outcomes, so it should not be used as a default search provider. Researchers have noticed that it is far from a search engine that users could fully trust. In their opinion, it should be called a browser hijacker like similar search tools created on the same template, for example, Search.yourpackagesnow.com and Search.yourinterestscenter.com. It has been given this name because it tends to show up on users’ browsers without their knowledge. Frankly speaking, they often contribute to the entrance of this browser hijacker, but they are not aware of that. Either way, Search.searchwatchytsn.com cannot be trusted, and it is not only because it changes Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox settings. Find out more about this website and why it should be avoided at all costs further in this article. This report should help you to come to a final decision about what to do with it too.

Users who had seen a 100% reputable search tool before would agree with us that Search.searchwatchytsn.com looks like a reputable search provider, but, unfortunately, it is far from Google, Yahoo!, or other trustworthy search providers. It has a drawback which makes it a search provider that cannot be trusted. Specifically speaking, a part of search results it returns to users might be sponsored. These search results are not based on the entered search query, meaning that they will not help you find the information on the web. In fact, they have a completely different purpose – they are shown to users expecting that they will click on them and visit promoted third-party pages. The more users end up on these websites, the more money is received by the company (Polarity Technologies Ltd) which owns Search.searchwatchytsn.com. Many users find those sponsored search results irritating, but the worst thing about them is that they might redirect users to untrustworthy pages. Since it is impossible, or extremely hard, to recognize and avoid them, specialists working at 411-spyware.com recommend removing Search.searchwatchytsn.com from all affected browsers as soon as possible. Only after its removal you will be allowed to set a new search tool in its place.

Specialists who have analyzed Search.searchwatchytsn.com have made a disturbing finding in the Privacy Policy document. Users, at first, are informed that personally-identifiable information about them will not be collected; however, if they continue reading this document, they find a sentence in capital letters telling them that personally-identifiable information inside search queries, i.e. if a user enters personal details in the search box, will be collected as a part of search data. Additionally, people are told that some details will be gathered automatically: type of browser, OS type, geographic location, Internet Service Provider (ISP), etc. This data will be disclosed to third parties. The main danger lies here because nobody knows whether or not these third parties can be trusted.

We are 99% sure that you are not the one who set Search.searchwatchytsn.com because this browser hijacker is usually spread through bundled malicious installers and often enter computers unnoticed. This is a popular method employed to spread untrustworthy software/search tools these days, so you should be more careful. What you should do is to install a security application on your PC and enable it. On top of that, you should never again download programs from dubious pages because you might install malware alongside without even realizing that.

You can open the settings panel of your default browser and enter a new URL in the homepage box instead of Search.searchwatchytsn.com, but we believe it will be easier for you to reset browsers to their default settings. Remove this undesirable search engine from all web browsers and then go to perform a computer scan with an automatic scanner to delete other untrustworthy applications. Your PC might, of course, be clean, but you will find out the truth only if you initiate a full system scan.
