Findyourtermsearch.com is a new potential threat that may appear in your browsers after installing a free program or a questionable browser extension through shady channels. In fact, this search website is an identical clone of Searchfindit.com, which has also surfaced only recently. This search engine may show up in your browsers as your new home page, new tab page, or default search provider. Therefore, we have categorized it as a browser hijacker. Do not be misled by its category name though; it does not necessarily mean that this hijack takes place without your knowledge. In fact, most of the time it is actually indicated that there will be certain browser setting changes if you want to install a particular browser extension or any other free software. However, this is usually overlooked by inexperienced users. This is why you may not be able to recall installing it. Unfortunately, in that case, it is quite likely that you will find also other malware infections on your system. We recommend that you act now and remove Findyourtermsearch.com from your PC.
Infecting your system with such a browser hijacker is probably easier and less mysterious than most users might think. It may sound shocking but, most of the time, it is actually you who installs such a threat even if unknowingly or out of pure carelessness. It is possible, for instance that you want to install a browser add-on but you do not research it properly and download it from a suspicious source or from an official web store, which is never really a guarantee that the application is reliable. This questionable add-on may mention while you are installing it that you also need to accept certain browser setting changes to be able to do so, but this can also be optional. And, there you go. You may easily forget this step and you would later think that this browser hijacker simply crawled on your system in some mysterious and evil way. We suggest that in such cases you also delete the questionable add-on after you delete Findyourtermsearch.com from your browsers.
Another possibility for you to end up with this browser hijacker is to drop a freeware bundle onto your machine. This bundle could be one that is promoted by a suspicious file-sharing website since such pages tend to offer questionable software packages instead of standalone files for download. But you can also drop such a bundle when you click on unreliable third-party advertisements. Such content could be presented to you by shady websites generally associated with file-sharing, online gambling, gaming, and porn, or by malware programs (e.g., adware apps and browser hijackers) hiding on your system. These pages are infamous for the quantity and quality of their third-party advertisements, which are not only annoying but they can also infect you with a bunch of browser hijackers, Trojans, fake warnings, adware programs as well as potentially unwanted applications. We recommend that after you delete Findyourtermsearch.com from your browser, you inspect your system with a malware scanner you can trust. You can use a free online scanner, too, as long as you find it reputable enough.
We have included our steps below so that you can easily eliminate this browser hijacker from your PC. You can use our guide even if you are an inexperienced computer user. Please remember that by resetting your browser, you may lose all your preferred settings and extensions. If you would like to avoid similar malware attacks, you should keep your programs and drivers updated, stay away from suspicious pages and third-party ads. However, the best and most effective way to protect your computer is to install a reliable anti-malware program like SpyHunter.
