Didisearch.com is a search engine that falls under the class of browser hijackers. It provides marketing services for third party websites. On its main window under “About”, it explicitly says that Didisearch.com is a privately owned company based in Asia, which specializes in online advertising, web traffic generation, helping website owners to generate revenue, etc. What about bringing the best user experience? Apparently, it only intends to make money from its users browsing and does not care about helping you with your searches.Neither does this hijacker care about the harm this search engine could inflict on the users. These ads that it displays might lead you to suspicious websites, where your computer could get infected with malware, such as Trojans, worms, etc. We strongly advise you to delete this browser hijacker from your PC and at the end of this article, you will find our recommended steps for its removal.

So basically, this search engine seeks to employ you, but it does not give you anything beneficial in exchange. More than anything, this browser hijacker needs your clicks, so to assure that it can get as many as possible, it changes Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer homepages into Didisearch.com. All this happens automatically and without your consent. Since this search engine’s appearance is similar to Google.com, you might not notice these changes at first. However, after it hijacks your browsers, it starts adding various ads and suggestions in your search results from different webpages that Didisearch.com promotes. This hijacker receives money from such advertising, so we can assume that it shows a lot of websites that it promotes. So searching for any information related to products or services on this engine might be difficult, because the search results are not objective, but based on what this hijacker wants you to see.

In addition, its generated ads and search results may harm your computer if you click on them. That is because “Didisearch has not reviewed, and cannot review, all of the material, including computer software, posted to the Website, and cannot therefore be responsible for that material’s content, use or effects.” So it disclaims all responsibility in its End User License Agreement; also, it states that users have to protect themselves “from viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and other harmful or destructive content.” As they cannot control the content of the websites that they advertise, there is a chance that you might be infected if you enter them or do any activities while being there. Furthermore, in its Privacy Policy, it states that “Companies which advertise on our site may collect information from you if you click on their advertisements or access their sites. They may do this by using cookies.” Obviously, if you enter third party websites, you must be very careful because they may collect information about you without your consent and you will have no control over what information could be gathered or how it would be used.

Didisearch.com is a recent work of the same creator that brought us ELEX browser hijacker; as a result, their activities on the infected computer and spreading methods are quite similar. Didisearch.com hijacker can enter your system if you visit a suspicious file-sharing website and download some freeware from it. This browser hijacker hides behind your downloaded program.
