Using powerful and reliable online search engines is very important these days, and cyber criminals are well aware that such browser extensions as Snap.do could help them access computers all around the world. This well known plug-in may be marketed as the best browsing experience offering system that can produce the “optimal way to share, search, work and play”. This, of course, is just an attractive and deceptive exterior, which is meant to lure you into downloading the application and employing it as your main search engine. If you do not delete Snap.do extension, your surfing habits could be recorded and sent to malignant third parties, something that could help schemers to target you with individual adware attacks.

What is more, this extension could change your home page, filter search results and present affiliate websites at the top of the result pages, cunningly directing you into opening them.

Snap.do removal may be a little trickier than it may appear at the first sight, because schemers will do whatever it takes to keep their malignant tool active.
