We do not think that Sensearch is a program that will enhance your web searching experience in any way, so if you are looking for a useful tool to perform web searches, you should not install it on your computer. This piece of software is not a harmful infection for sure, but it cannot be called a reputable application either because it has all the features of a potentially unwanted program, specialists at 411-spyware.com say. It has been observed that it might be installed on users’ PCs without permission, it is not very useful, and, finally, research has shown that it might collect information about users. Of course, you are the one who will have to make the final decision, so if you still cannot decide whether you should remove it from the list of extensions on your browser or not, you should read this article till the end. You will find more information about it in this article, so it should be easier for you to make the final decision after you read it.
As you, most probably, already know, Sensearch is a potentially unwanted program. There are several reasons it has been classified as a PUP. First, although it is promoted as a useful tool for searching the web, it does not do anything very beneficial. It even fails to set its own search tool on users’ browsers even though its description tells that it will alter the default search engine following the successful entrance. Have you found your browsers’ settings changed? If so, you should not blindly trust the page set even though it looks like a trustworthy search provider because it might expose you to potential threats when you click on the so-called modified search results opened to you. As you can see, Sensearch is not as useful as it claims to be, so think twice before letting it stay on your computer. What you should also know about it is that it might collect information about you if you keep it active. Of course, potentially unwanted applications do not act as harmful infections, i.e., they cannot access sensitive information, and, on top of that, they should not record any personally-identifiable details, but we are sure that Sensearch will be able to access the non-personally identifiable data. That is, it will record the URLs of domains you visit, your IP address, the type of browser you use, and other non-personal details. They will not identify you personally, but third parties might still get some information about you if the recorded data is disclosed to them.
Sensearch is called a potentially unwanted program also because it can appear on users’ computers without their knowledge. It used to be available at the Chrome Web Store (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/sensearch/kfbjelccplhemlmdepedechafbmddboj), but it has already been removed from there, so if you have found Sensearch installed on your computer only recently, the chances are high that it has affected your browser without permission. Specialists say that it can be spread in bundles, and, on top of that, users might be presented with pop-ups that go full-screen and ask to install the promoted extension to continue. No matter how Sensearch has arrived on your computer, it is still a potentially unwanted application, so do not expect much from it. In our opinion, you should not even keep it active on your system because it is basically useless, especially if it has not set its own search tool. We are sure it will not be hard at all to prevent similar untrustworthy applications from entering the system in the future if you enable a reputable security application on your computer today.
The potentially unwanted application we are talking about in this article is not a simple program. It is a browser extension, so you could only delete it via the browser’s add-ons manager. Specialists say that it affects only Google Chrome, so its removal will not be very time-consuming. If it is the first time you are going to erase the browser extension, you should consult our instructions. Alternatively, you can perform the system scan with an automated malware remover to get rid of the undesirable extension. The good news is that all other active malicious components will be erased from your PC too!
