LookSafe is promoted as a computer program; however, in reality it is a search tool which is meant to help you browse the web more securely. If you connect to looksafe.com, you will be informed that the supposedly reliable program can assist with malware protection or anti-phishing. The application is meant to guard you against personal data and virtual identity hijacking. If you install the search tool, it changes the DNS settings, and this is supposed to enable faster and more reliable user experience. Some virtual security experts identify this activity as potentially intrusive. Even though we do not categorize the application as a browser hijacker, we definitely recommend that you delete LookSafe.
As soon as you initiate the installation of LookSafe, you will be presented with a setup representing home page and search provider modifications. Luckily, the modifications are optional and you can refuse them. Note that the changes are set for automatic installation, which means that if you do not notice the option to reject undesirable software, unwanted applications will be installed without you even realizing it. All in all, malware researchers indicate that the installation of new search tools is not exactly transparent in this case. Even though you are asked to accept the installation of yahoo.com search tools, looksafesearch.com are installed instead. Even though this search provider is powered by Yahoo as well, it still is not what you are promised.
Do you want to browse the web without any risks? Then you should choose authentic and reliable search tools. We recommend that you remove LookSafe from the affected browsers. You can use the manual removal guides below to delete the undesirable home page and search provider tools. You should also think about installing authentic security software which could warn you about potential risks when installing questionable software in the future.
