If you have launched any of your browsers and discovered Funtabcybersearch.com, a browser hijacker has successfully entered the computer. According to researchers, it targets users living in Europe and U.S primarily; however, you still cannot keep it on browsers even if you live on the other side of the world. There are several reasons specialists do not recommend keeping Funtabcybersearch.com set on their browsers. First, it has been found that this questionable search tool might show the modified search results. Second, it might gather important information about users. Third, it enters computers and applies changes to browsers without permission. Trustworthy search tools never act this way, so users who find Funtabcybersearch.com set as their homepages and search engines on all browsers need to delete it as soon as possible. Unfortunately, this will not be very easy to do because this browser hijacker (it is called like that because it applies changes without a user’s consent), unlike ordinary applications, does not have an entry in Control Panel. In other words, it is impossible to delete it manually easily. Find out what the other ways to delete Funtabcybersearch.com are and why it is a must to do that in this article.
It is impossible not to notice the presence of a browser hijacker because it applies changes immediately after the entrance on the computer. In the case of a browser hijacker promoting Funtabcybersearch.com, it sets this search tool as homepage, search engine, and, most probably, the New Tab page. In other words, you will see new changes applied every time you open your browser. Users do not immediately understand that a malicious application has entered their computers because Funtabcybersearch.com does not look like a bad web page. To be honest, this browser hijacker is not as harmful as Trojans, backdoors or ransomware infections; however, the search tool it promotes might still cause harm to the system. In most cases, this happens when users click on any of these modified search results shown by Funtabcybersearch.com and end up on a third-party website with an infectious content. To be frank, you should never use search tools that show sponsored (modified) search results because they might promote dangerous websites. Of course, it is not so easy to say whether or not the search tool is dangerous, but you should know that none of the search engines that are set on browsers without permission can be trusted.
Funtabcybersearch.com is very similar to yourinstantrecipes.com, yourinstantradio.com, and funsecuritytabsearch.com, which are considered to be dubious search tools. This shows that other similar browser hijackers really exist and they might change the settings of your browsers one day too if you do not do anything to protect the computer. It has been found that browser hijackers promoting questionable search tools often travel bundled with other applications in software bundles. Therefore, users should be cautious when installing new applications. The installation of an automatic security tool is a must too.
If you are planning on deleting Funtabcybersearch.com manually, we recommend resetting browsers to their default settings one by one. Follow the manual removal guide (find it below this article) if you have never done that before. This is not the only removal method. If you find the manual method too hard to employ alone, scan your system with an automatic malware remover, e.g. SpyHunter.
