Kilo-Search.com is a browser hijacker that you might encounter if you use Chrome, Internet Explorer, or Firefox. Were you tricked into installing this unreliable search tool yourself? If you have, it is obvious that the installers promoting it and their sources are unreliable. Also, you should install a scanner to search for third-party software that might have been installed along with it. Needless to say, you have to perform this step if your browsers were hijacked; otherwise, malware might remain undetected and concealed. If you do not know which malware scanner to use, we recommend clicking the Download button below and installing a scanner that will identify removal-deserving malware free of charge. Once the situation is clear, delete Kilo-Search.com and the remaining threats.

Babylon Ltd. is the developer of Kilo-Search.com. Our research team has found that this hijacker is identical to such infamous hijackers as Start.mysearchs.com, Golsearch.com, and Enhanced-search.com that also must be removed. Just like some of its clones, the hijacker we are discussing can download its own toolbar, Kilo Toolbar. This program is not offered at info.kilo-search.com, and it is most likely that it comes bundled along with the hijacker and possibly other uninvited programs. Of course, you can delete this toolbar, just like the hijacker itself, and you definitely should because this toolbar is meant to promote links to third-party sites, and these sites might expose you to unreliable content. You will face the same risk if you choose to use Kilo-Search.com as a regular search provider, instead of removing it. Search.smartshopping.com is the search provider associated with this hijacker, and it is not trusted either.

The suspicious Kilo-Search.com uses tracking cookies to track your activity. These cookies help learn more about you, as well as help track your interaction with the content associated with them. What worries us the most is that these cookies might be used by unknown parties as well. Luckily, it does not seem that personal information will be collected by these cookies, but even non-personally identifiable information in the wrong hands could be used in a malicious manner. For example, if malicious parties learn that you are interested in malware removal software, they might introduce you to a fake offer hiding a malicious installer or a link to an unreliable site. Because of risks like this one, you should remove Kilo-Search.com.
