MoonlySearch (mooonly.com) will be set as your homepage on all the browsers installed without your permission if a browser hijacker ever enters your computer. Researchers have found that this usually happens for users living in India and Romania, which suggests that a browser hijacker promoting mooonly.com targets those users primarily. Of course, it does not mean that users from the other side of the world are safe. To be frank, it does not really matter where you live because you need to remove MoonlySearch from your browsers in any event. Reliable websites will never make modifications on your browsers without your consent. In addition, they always have Terms of Use and Privacy Policy documents telling users how exactly they act. In the case of MoonlySearch, such documents do not even exist, so we do not know what types of information mooonly.com collects, and it is unclear what to expect from it. If you make a decision not to use such a questionable search engine to perform searches on the web, you should remove it right now because it is the only way to stop it and then set another reputable search engine instead.

Users do not hurry to remove MoonlySearch from their browsers. They see that it allows them to search for images, videos, news, and other types of information on the web, and they think that mooonly.com is a search engine that can be trusted. Unfortunately, it is not true at all. It has been noticed that this search tool shows the so-called sponsored search results. Such search results look exactly like those ordinary ones; however, they are shown to users only to promote particular third-party websites. Since nobody checks these websites before advertising them, it might be very true that you will end up on an untrustworthy web page one day. You might find anything on an unreliable website, from bad external links to malicious software. Also, these modified search results will make it harder for you to find the information you need on the web.

Specialists say that mooonly.com might also collect data about users. It is impossible to say what particular details it records because it does not have a Privacy Policy; however, it should be interested in users’ preferences, activities, search history, and similar details. All these details are known to be non-personally identifiable; however, people do not know that they might still contain personal data. Also, third-party websites promoted by mooonly.com might also record sensitive data. Of course, you will not know about that. We hope that you have understood that MoonlySearch might cause many problems. Unfortunately, the only way to protect your computer from harm is to remove it from the place of your homepage.

There are hundreds or even thousands different browser hijackers out there on the web trying to reach users’ computers. These threats are all spread in a similar way, i.e. they come bundled with other applications in malicious software installers. In some cases, users can prevent untrustworthy software from entering their computers by unchecking the certain box on the installation window. Unfortunately, the majority of people do not even know that their browsers’ settings will be changed if they click Next because they tend not to read the information provided for them. If you do not think that you can protect your computer, you should allow an automatic tool to do this for you. If you do not have a tool you can trust installed on your system yet, you should acquire one right now to protect your PC from harm.

MoonlySearch (mooonly.com) should abandon all the browsers installed on your system when you reset them all to their default settings. If you have never done that before, we believe that you might need some help. Therefore, specialists working at 411-spyware.com have prepared the manual removal guide for users. You are welcome to use this guide; however, if it does not help you to remove MoonlySearch, you should scan your computer with SpyHunter. This antimalware scanner will remove all the existing threats from your system, including those that have been working in the background without your permission.
