Dosearches.com is not a reliable search engine, and it is most likely that it has been set as your home page or search provider without any of your knowledge. According to the recent research, the malicious infection has been designed to boost traffic to certain websites, which means that you should not expect any reliable search results from it. In fact, all searches are redirected to search.yahoo.com, which is why there is no point in using the tool altogether.

The developer of this engine is Seablue Technology Limited and it has set out to generate profit, and this can be done in several different ways. For example, the developers can earn money by promoting, boosting traffic to certain websites (e.g. search.yahoo.com). It is also possible to earn money by sharing information collected by active web cookies. Even if the cookies cannot discover personally identifiable information, they can reveal your search history which could be used by third-party advertisers.

  1. What software was bundled with Dosearches? so that we could be careful

    • Hey Jennifer Nelson,
      That is a very good question. We have done a little research and here are few software samples that you should avoid: FBPhotoZoom, ClickDownload, Language Learning, , DealFinder, Yontoo. But it could be a lot more because they are making these type of installers every day. Just be careful when downloading and installing software
