Browser-search.net is identified as a hijacker because it has the ability to modify homepage and search provider settings without informing the system’s owner. Hijackers rarely travel by themselves, and there is a good chance that your operating system is infected with other malicious infections that could be attached to the same bundle. Unfortunately, this means that you cannot solely focus on the removal of Browser-search.net. This report was created to help you understand this infection and learn more about its removal. However, you should scan your PC to see which other threats you might need to delete, and the removal guides on this website should help you get rid of them all.

The creators of Browser-search.net have attempted to represent it as a useful search provider. Our research shows that this hijacker is identical to Searchatomic.com and Buscarenlaweb.com, and neither of these search tools is beneficial. In fact, Browser-search.net is completely useless as it shows only a few search results, and even those are unlikely to provide you with trustworthy and reliable content. If you use the Search option, you might think there are many different search results; however, in reality, the same search results repeat throughout all pages! Images, Videos, and News search tools show only a few results, and the Shopping function does not work at all. The uselessness of this search tool is definitely a good reason to remove it from your browsers. Unfortunately, there is at least one much more important reason to delete Browser-search.net from your browsers.

Browser-search.net is not reliable, and you should realize this if you check the Privacy Policy disclosure at Browser-search.net/privacy.

We have analyzed this document, and it discloses that personally identifiable information could be collected and shared with “subsidiaries, affiliated and parent companies.” This is a dangerous territory, and you can get out of it by removing Browser-search.net from your operating system. Note that malware installed along with this hijacker could be just as intrusive, and you must delete it as soon as possible.

You should not postpone the removal of Browser-search.net for much longer. This hijacker is like a ticking bomb, and the longer you wait to delete it from your PC, the more risk you are putting on your virtual security.
