Buump.me is a search engine, and if you browse insecure websites and install freeware, buump.me can replace your homepage, new tabs, and search provider. The changes can be made on Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox, and if you cannot remove it from the browsers by changing the homepage and other settings manually, some more serious measure should be taken. Do not keep buump.me on your browsers even though it may seem to be a harmless search provider. The truth is that it is not an infection, but it is supported by advertising services and can expose you to inappropriate content.

Buump.me does not control or monitor the content of the websites to which the user is exposed through the search hits. When you find a sponsored advertisement on the search results page, it does not mean that buump.me is affiliated with those websites. You may be provided with content for adults and offense webpage, so you should know that by clicking on a link that takes you to suspicious webpage, you start interactive with the website but not with buump.me. A corrupted website may, for example, redirect you to some spammy websites or send some malware program to your PC. If you do not want to suffer from unexpected consequences of your browsing, do not hesitate to remove buump.me from the system.

Another feature of buump.me should encourage you to eliminate from the browsers is its capability to monitor your online behavior. Buump.me records your search terms to determine what you are interested in; it also records your IP address, the type of the browsers you use, the date and time spent on some websites, and other details. The information is used for marketing and advertising purposes, which means that it may be used for generating and sending various ads to your browsers. If you look closer to the terms of privacy policy, you will find that the search engine seeks to improve its search and advertising service. Even though buump.me collects only non-personally identifiable information, there is some risk that your personally identifiable details may accidentally become accessible to the third-parties, which is another reason why you should not delay the removal of the unwanted search engine.
