Our specialists say the application falls under such classification because it may modify user’s browser preferences, could be distributed through unreliable channels, and might show user’s suspicious advertisements from various third parties. Naturally, we do not think it would be wise to install it, and if you already did, we recommend erasing it before anything goes wrong. Of course, users who are still in doubt, could keep reading our report and find out more important details about SearchsmartDS Search and its effective manner. Should you decide to get rid of this PUP, later on do not forget you can do so while following our recommended removal steps located below this article.
Our specialists discovered the application is compatible only with Google Chrome browsers. Moreover, the PUP could be spread through its official website called searchsmart.bid and Chrome Web Store page (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/searchsmartds/gmanepbhbkdehnlfmjfpofpnkjfajnll). However, there is a chance SearchsmartDS Search may travel with bundled setup files that might be distributed through torrent and other untrustworthy P2P file-sharing networks. This is why we always advise users choose legitimate web pages instead of sites containing pirated software because even though they may let you obtain programs free of charge, there is a risk their setup files might be bundled with various threats and possibly malicious software. For extra precaution, you could scan suspicious setup files with a reliable security tool, but it would be safer just to avoid such files. To keep away from possible threats, our specialists also suggest doing a little research first to make sure the program you wish to obtain is safe and harmless.
Unfortunately, the PUP’s creators take no responsibility for third-party content, so there are no guarantees the ads will be reliable, and so we think it would be safest not to interact with them. In fact, to avoid any risks, we recommend erasing SearchsmartDS Search. To remove it manually you should complete the steps provided a bit below this paragraph. The PUP can be deleted with a security tool as well, so if you would rather eliminate it this way, we advise you to choose a reliable tool.
