According to our research, Searchencrypt.com can showcase sponsored content, and that is not something you can ignore, especially if your browser was hijacked without your permission. Although the hijacker looks like a normal search tool, it does not work in the most transparent manner. First and foremost, it is obvious that Searchencrypt.com is used as an advertising tool because the top search results showcase sponsored links. Furthermore, it is known that this infection tracks your activity using tracking cookies. Are you sure that third parties are not using the data recorded by these cookies to introduce you to more alluring offers? Considering that these parties could be both reliable and malicious, you do not want them learning anything about you. Even if the hijacker allows you to “retry” your searches using the reputable Google, Yahoo, and Bing search tools, we do not recommend interacting with it at all. If you have already decided that the services offered by the hijacker are not worth the trouble, delete it at once.
