CIP QxSearch could replace your homepage, default search engine, or your new tab page with a particular search website if you add it to your browser. According to our specialists, the add-on is compatible with Google Chrome alone, which is why users who search the Internet with Mozilla Firefox or any other browser should not come across it. As for those who may, we highly recommend reading the rest of our report to find out more details about it. It would seem, the extension is categorized as a potentially unwanted program or a PUP in short. It does not mean it is harmful, but it is best to be cautious. For users who decide to remove it from their browsers, we can offer our deletion instructions located at the end of the article. Also, in case you have any questions, do not hesitate to leave us a comment.

To start with, we should talk about where CIP QxSearch might come from. Like many other PUPs, it could travel with bundled software installers. Some users install bundled applications because they overlook them. Some setup files confusingly display additional suggestions and users, who do not read terms carefully, may not realize they are installing extra tools. For example, the installer could provide an already pre-checked checkbox next to the bundled application and a button saying “Continue.” Consequently, users who do not read any terms may click the Continue button without realizing they are agreeing into installing something else. Therefore, if you do not want to receive PUPs or other tools accidentally, you should always select custom/advanced installation settings and read all terms carefully. Of course, it is advisable to download software from legitimate sources only and have a trustworthy security tool to help you keep the computer clean.

As explained earlier, CIP QxSearch can affect only Google Chrome browsers, although we cannot be certain the add-on will not become compatible with other browsers in the future. Same as similar PUPs it should change a user’s homepage, new tab page, or other browser preferences. Our specialists say the extension may do so to encourage users to search the Internet through a particular search engine called qxsearch.com. We advise being careful if you decide to give it a try. There is a chance the application could track you and display targeted advertising while browsing. Such ads could belong to various third parties, and qxsearch.com creators might not review them to ensure their safety. Meaning, it is possible some of the ads could come from untrustworthy sources. We cannot know this for sure as we could not access the add-on’s Privacy Policy and End License Agreement documents. Nonetheless, if you do not want to take any chances, it might be best to delete CIP QxSearch and replace qxsearch.com with a legitimate search tool like google.com or search.yahoo.com.

There are two ways to get rid of CIP QxSearch. Firstly, you could try to remove it via your browser’s settings. All you have to do is access the extensions menu and remove the PUP from there. If you have no idea how to do this, you could follow the instructions located right after this paragraph. The second option is to let a reliable security tool deal with CIP QxSearch for you. Just do a full system scan and then click the tool’s provided deletion button to get rid of all detected threats.
