Gnoosit.net is a search engine that is part of a browser hijacker infection. The search engine is French language based, which allows one to presuppose that the main target of this infection are computer users in France and other French speaking countries, but that is definitely not all. Anyone could get infected with this browser hijacker, and just because the main page looks like a genuine search engine it does not mean you can trust it. It is highly recommended to remove Gnoosit.net from your browser and your computer, in order to protect your personal information and your system from cyber criminals.

If you have encountered such browser hijackers as Qone8 Virus, Delta-homes and others before, you will know what you expect of Gnoosit.net as well.

Such browser hijackers are often bundled with freeware and you need to be extra attentive when you install new applications on your computer in order to avoid browser modifications that might lead to Gnoosit.net being set as your default home page and search engine.

First and foremost, you must not click the pop-up advertisements delivered by Gnoosit.net, and do not use this website for your search queries. It is very likely that you will be exposed to a third party (and possibly harmful) content, as the browser hijacker has quite a few vulnerabilities itself and can be used as a tool for malware distribution.

If you get redirected to a particular website by Gnoosit.net be sure to close your browser window immediately and then run a full system scan with SpyHunter free scanner to determine whether you are infected with anything else or not.
