Findgofind.com is a search engine users may receive after agreeing to add an extension called FindGoFind to their browser. Since currently, it is compatible only with Google Chrome, we do not think the tool could be encountered by users who browse with different browsing applications. What’s more, the software’s users should be aware that it falls under the category of browser hijackers. It does not mean the extension or its search engine are malicious, but it does not show they are reliable either. Given that there are more reputable search engines to choose from; we would advise you not to waste your time with this doubtful application and get rid of Findgofind.com now with the deletion instructions placed below this article.
Users who continue reading the article may learn more about the browser hijacker as we will provide more details about it. To begin with, we should explain how Findgofind.com might enter the system, or to be more precise how you could receive the extension it travels with. The add-on’s ID number is ighmhepllhnimjcldolbjljfnjfkchdd. At the moment of writing, there is no application available on Chrome Web Store that would have such an ID number. Perhaps the extension was never distributed through this website or simply got removed because of its questionable reliability. Therefore, we believe it is more likely that the software might be distributed through pop-up ads or bundled software installers. Thus, if you do not know how the hijacker got in, but you recall downloading untrustworthy tools, it is quite possible you installed the threat together without even realizing it. No doubt, you should pay more attention next time if you wish to avoid similar mistakes in the future.
As soon as the add-on is placed, it should be visible in the Google Chrome’s extensions menu. Next to the application’s title, you can see a short description saying: “Find the web in a really fast way! New homepage with useful links to your social networks and media sites.” While it is true, the extension can replace user’s homepage, or even search engine and new tab page with Findgofind.com, we did not notice any links to social media websites. Instead the search engine provided links called Weather, E-Mail, Translate, Shopping, Calendar, Finance, and Applications. Since the sites they redirect the user to most likely belong to the software’s third-party partners, we recommend you to be cautious and learn about them first before using these sites.
If you do not want to take any chances with Findgofind.com, we advise you to erase the browser hijacker at once. The task is not particularly challenging and if you think you may need any assistance there are removal instructions at the end of this paragraph; they can guide you through the process. Also, users might find it even easier to simply download a reliable security tool, perform a full system scan, and let the antimalware tool erase the threat for them.
