If you are using Blasearch.com, you must not realize that this supposedly reliable and beneficial search tool is another browser hijacker that is identified as a potential threat. Some users might find this threat installed without their permission, which should help them realize that they are dealing with a threat that requires removal. However, most users are likely to install it themselves. Right now, the hijacker is compatible with Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox browsers, but it is possible that different browsers will be affected in the future. Also, it is possible that later versions (if they are released) will be able to modify the browsers in different ways. Right now, the hijacker only changes the homepage URL. The good news is that because of that you will realize that your browser was corrupted (if it was done without your permission) as soon as you launch it. Overall, even if you installed it yourself, we advise deleting Blasearch.com from your browsers immediately.

It is very important to determine how Blasearch.com was installed. Although it is possible that it has slithered in without any warning, it is far more likely that you installed it willingly. Was this hijacker introduced to you as you were installing a different program? If that was the case, the hijacker must have been introduced to you using a software bundle. Are you sure that the software packaged along with it is trustworthy? There is only one way to find out: You have to research this software. Though you might be able to analyze all suspicious programs yourself, we suggest using a legitimate malware scanner instead. Malware could hide itself, and disguises could be used to trick and confuse you. A malware scanner analyzes the files and components of each program to determine whether or not it is malicious and requires removal. Needless to say, that is difficult to do manually. If the scanner does not identify serious threats, you can focus on Blasearch.com. If dangerous malware is found, eliminate it first.

The Privacy Policy represented by BlaSearch Ltd. informs that Blasearch.com can record personally-identifiable information when you use the hijacker’s search service. This is one of the biggest, most important reasons to delete it from your browsers immediately. We also suggest erasing this threat because it can introduce you to unreliable search results. In the worst case scenario, misleading ads and sponsored links will be shown to you as soon as the hijacker illegally redirects you to search.yahoo.com. Are you willing to trust Blasearch.com because you trust Yahoo Search? Although this might make sense, in reality, the hijacker could easily modify the results to introduce you to unreliable content. Considering that virtual ads are often used by schemers to trick gullible users and extract information about them, as well as malicious distributors trying to spread malware, we do not recommend interacting with the results shown by the hijacker at any point.

If you decide to remove Blasearch.com from your web browsers, you have several options. You can use the instructions below (for those interested in manual removal), or you can install anti-malware software that can automatically erase the hijacker along with all other threats. Of course, it is most likely that the latter option will be chosen by those who find other threats present, but you should consider using anti-malware software for further system’s protection as well. If your operating system is not guarded reliably, all kinds of dangerous malware could slither in. In fact, you could be tricked into installing it yourself! If you employ security software to screen the software before it is installed, you will not need to worry about the attacks of dangerous malware.
