Many potentially unwanted programs have official websites, and QuericsSearch is not an exception. Its homepage is called defaultsearch.link. The extension is also offered on the Chrome Web Store page at the moment of writing. However, we do not think that the mentioned websites are the only places where users could obtain the extension. Since it is a potentially unwanted program, it is likely that it might be advertised on pop-ups, banners, and other ads. Also, the application could be bundled with similar software. The installers bundled with it might be distributed through various file-sharing websites. This is why we advise staying away from file-sharing sites and questionable ads if you want to avoid potentially unwanted programs. Also, researchers recommend having a reliable antimalware tool that could help you keep your system safe and protected.

Consequently, the search website might look elegant and more personalized than others. However, users should know that once they start searching through it, they might get redirected to another website that should gather and display the expected search results. Our specialists say that the potentially unwanted program might redirect users to the Yahoo search engine. Naturally, users who might not like Yahoo could be annoyed by such functionality. As for users who know that Yahoo is available to anyone and does not require installing any software to be used, the application could seem not that useful. Of course, if you are not happy with the extension and search.querics.net, you could erase QuericsSearch.
