Dnav.com is a search engine that should show “the best search results from across the web.” Even though it looks like a traditional search engine, specialists do not think that they can call this search tool reliable just because it promises to show good search results. There are, actually, three reasons why researchers at 411-spyware.com do not recommend using Dnav.com as a default search engine. First, it is very likely that this search tool is a browser hijacker because it has changed the settings of all the browsers it has found installed on the computer without permission. Secondly, it is known that it might display third-party ads promoting websites, products, and services. Third, as it has become immediately clear after reading the Privacy Policy document, Dnav.com also gathers different types of information about users and then shares it with third parties. As you probably understand now, search engines that look trustworthy are not necessarily very good. Therefore, there is no point in keeping and using Dnav.com as a default search tool just because it looks reliable at first glance as well. You will find more about the deletion of this search engine from browsers if you read this article. Yes, it is very likely that you will make a decision to get rid of it after you read this article from beginning to end.

According to specialists, it might be very true that Dnav.com belongs to the Trovi family of browser hijackers. Since all the search tools from this family are more or less untrustworthy, users should not expect that Dnav.com will be a reliable search tool too even though it really enables users to search for the information in such categories as images, videos, and news. First of all, reliable search engines never change the settings on browsers without permission. Secondly, it has been found that Dnav.com, even though it is powered by Bing, which is a good search engine, and displays its search results, this questionable search tool might still promote third-party websites, products, and services by displaying promotional links and ads. If they are ever shown to you, you should be able to find them on the search results page. Do not click on those ads and links because you might be taken to websites that are not the most trustworthy ones.

Furthermore, Dnav.com cannot be trusted fully because it is said in the Privacy Policy that it records all kinds of details about users. Then, it “may share your information with certain third parties (including, without limitation, search engines, content providers, and advertising networks and platforms) that provide various services (such as advertising, marketing, analysis, content, and search) in connection with the Software & Service.” If you use Dnav.com as your default search engine, you will hand in a bunch of different details to third parties, for example, search queries, advertisements you view, web pages you visit, and, finally, the information you submit voluntarily, e.g. name, surname, email, gender, birth date, etc. Those search tools that are trustworthy also record information about users’ activities on the web so that it would be easier to provide the content based on this information. There is nothing wrong when good search tools do that, but we do not think that it is a very good idea to allow Dnav.com to record a number of different details freely and then send it to third parties.

We are sure that Dnav.com is not the only untrustworthy search engine. Believe us; a number of legitimate-looking search tools come as components in browser hijackers, so it is very likely that one day you will see a different search engine set instead of your preferred one again. Of course, users can ensure the maximum protection of their computers by installing a security tool, so we suggest doing that as soon as possible if you do not wish to see new unauthorized changes applied ever again. Users should be careful with software from file-sharing and similar websites too because browser hijackers and other similar threats often come bundled with freeware.

Search engines that hijack browsers and change their settings without permission have to be removed as soon as possible because they might put computers in danger even though they look harmless. Dnav.com is no exception. It might cause harm to you even though it does not look dangerous. There are two methods you can choose from to delete this untrustworthy search tool from your browsers. If you come to a decision to erase it manually, let our manual removal instructions help you. If you make a decision to get rid of Dnav.com automatically, you should not use the first legitimate-looking tool you find on the web because the interface of software tells nothing about its reliability.
