Safepage.easyfiletool.com is an unreliable search engine that can enter your computer via a certain application and hijack Google Chrome’s homepage and new tab page. We recommend that you remove it if have it on your computer. We do not see any positive side to this search engine because it does not feature a unique search algorithm to improve your browsing experience. We believe that this search engine’s purpose is to expose you to clandestine advertisements that you may encounter while using social media. So this search engine’s purpose is to generate advertising revenue for its developers and their clients. You might also want to get rid of this search engine because its ads can be of unknown origin, and thus, pose a security threat to your computer. For more information, please continue reading this whole article.

Safepage.easyfiletool.com’s presence on your computer can come as a result of installing a program called EasyFileTool which, in turn, can install an extension called Search App By EasyFileTool on Google Chrome. As far as we know, you can download EasyFileTool from its main website at Easyfiletool.com. Nevertheless, we believe that this program might also come bundled with malicious installers and downloaders that are often featured on freeware hosting sites. Moreover, we would not be surprised to find its standalone installer on freeware distributing websites, such as Software.informer.com. All three of these products are owned Bysenda Technology Inc., a software developer based in Hong Kong. This is the same developers that created Ghokswa Browser, which was classified as potentially unwanted. So this program’s distribution methods are only borderline-legitimate and the company that created it is not the most trustworthy company, to say the least.

We tested EasyFileTool’s standalone installer that we downloaded from Easyfiletool.com and here is what we found. When you run its installer, the setup will ask whether you want to set Safepage.easyfiletool.com as the homepage for Chrome. We were surprised by the fact that Search App By EasyFileTool was not installed and the homepage was not changed even though we left the checkbox asking to set Safepage.easyfiletool.com at the homepage checked. However, that may not always be the case, but it is evident that this program’s developers do not know how to make software that works which is probably a good thing in this case. We did not focus our attention on EasyFileTool and its functions, so we do not know if it works or not, all we can say is that it is not a malicious application and poses no threat.

Nevertheless, if Search App By EasyFileTool has forced Safepage.easyfiletool.com upon your web browser, then we want to inform you that as a search engine it is utterly useless because it redirects all of the search queries to Google.com. Furthermore, we have found that Search App By EasyFileTool can inject some commercial advertisements in social media websites and collect information about you. EasyFileTool’s Privacy Policy states that “We may get information about you from other sources, such as social media like Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. When you click on our ads placed with them, they will provide us with information from your accounts.” The information this extension can obtain includes your first and last name, social media handle and email address. Allegedly, all of this information is used to enhance and personalize the use of Safepage.easyfiletool.com.

Lastly, we want to mention that in order to get rid of this search engine and its accompanying programs you have to delete leftover junk files located at %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions (in Windows Vista, 7,8,8.1, and 10) or %UserProfile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions (in Windows XP.) Look for a file named ameciblomolgghbiogamjcafnpjljlop.

In conclusion, Safepage.easyfiletool.com is a useless search engine that is set to replace Chrome’s default homepage and new tab page by its accompanying applications. It is clear that this search engine was developed to display clandestine advertisements on social media pages which are undesirable, and there is no way of knowing whether its ads are safe because cybercriminals can use it to promote scam websites.
