Do not mistake Safe-web.tk for a regular search provider. Whether it hijacks your browsers or you are redirected to it by the Globasearch hijacker, trusting its services might be a mistake. Although it appears to represent Google, Wikipedia, Yahoo, and Bing search, we do not recommend trusting it. Of course, if it has hijacked your browsers without your permission – and this is most likely to be the case – you will realize that this search tool is unpredictable and potentially unreliable. Now, if your homepage and search provider tools were replaced with your consent, it might be more difficult to see the negative sides of this strange search tool. If you wish to learn more before you decide whether or not to delete Safe-web.tk from your browsers, please continue reading this report.

According to our researchers, most victims of Safe-web.tk live in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Indonesia, Thailand, and Algeria. Of course, this hijacker could corrupt your browsers if you live in other countries as well. In fact, most users are not actually dealing with Safe-web.tk or its clones, such as bingoweb.ga and search-eyes.tk. As mentioned previously, this search tool is usually represented by Globasearch. This is a malicious hijacker that conceals itself by redirecting to other search pages. Of course, if that is the case, it is Globasearch that requires removal, not some third-party search tool. Nevertheless, it is possible that the malicious hijacker we are discussing will corrupt your browsers, and it could do that along with other unreliable programs. In fact, it is possible that much more malicious programs could slither into your operating system using the same installer.

SafeWeb Studio is introduced to users as the developer of Safe-web.tk. Considering how many clones this hijacker has and that different companies are associated with every single one of them, it is possible that the real developer is concealed. The hijacker itself is very suspicious, and many things raise questions. For example, what kind of information does it collect? The Privacy Policy suggests that the cookies and web beacons employed by SafeWeb Studio collect only non-personally identifiable information. This is good news; however, you must keep in mind that unreliable parties could use this kind of information as well. For example, your web browsing history could be used to figure out what kind of content you are more likely to interact with. Have you encountered any pop-ups? They could have been created based on the information collected about you, which should raise the chances of you interacting with them.

The pop-up advertisements introduced to you by Safe-web.tk might seem completely reliable, but we do not recommend interacting with them even if they are. There is a risk of encountering malicious surveys, promotions, shopping deals, and other content that is set up to lure you in. Schemers are always using vulnerable programs to scam users, and this browser hijacker could provide the right security backdoor. Hopefully, that is not the case; however, if you have disclosed personal information by interacting with these pop-ups, you need to be cautious about any scams. Note that ads could be introduced to you by adware installed by the same downloaders that are used to install Safe-web.tk. According to our research, these downloaders might be found on extrahosted.com, directhosted.org, softdistribute.com, thefilehost.org, and similar websites.

Anti-malware software can solve many issues for you. It can remove all existing threats, and since it is possible that you need to eliminate other infections besides the hijacker, this is the best solution. What is more, this software can take care of your Windows protection, so that you would not need to worry about the malicious attacks of other malicious infections. Of course, it is possible to remove Safe-web.tk manually as well. If you follow the steps shown below, you will replace this unwanted search provider with the desired one. If you face trouble with any of the steps or the entire operation, you can contact us by commenting below. Needless to say, if you are facing difficulties, it is best to employ automated malware detection and removal software.
