If you are using a device with Android OS or iOS, you might find Search.browsersearch.net set on your browsers one day. It can change both your homepage and default search tool, so we are sure you will sooner or later notice it on your web browsers if it ever applies changes to them. Even though this search tool seems to be quite trustworthy at first glance, it is not, believe us, so do not even consider keeping it set on your browsers. You can remove Search.browsersearch.net at any time, but we cannot promise that its removal will be a piece of cake because browser hijackers can be stubborn infections. Before you go to erase this browser hijacker from your Mozilla Firefox/Google Chrome/Safari, read this article till the end. The information you find there should help you to delete this search tool from browsers, and you will also find out why it is not such a good idea to use Search.browsersearch.net as a default search tool.

We have to admit that Search.browsersearch.net looks quite trustworthy if we only take into account its interface, but, unfortunately, we still cannot confirm that it is a search tool you can use for performing web searches fearlessly because research conducted by specialists at 411-spyware.com has revealed disturbing facts about this search engine. It has turned out that this search provider might bring untrustworthy search results to users. To be more specific, you might be presented with links belonging to third parties. Nothing is known about these links, so it would be best not to click on any of them. Unfortunately, it is easier said than done. It might be quite a challenge to recognize those third-party links, so you will sooner or later click on them if you use Search.browsersearch.net as your default search provider. We do not say that all these links are harmful, but you might surely click on those untrustworthy ones too if you use Search.browsersearch.net to perform searches every day. They might redirect you straight to dubious websites, so be very careful. To be frank, being careful is not enough. The complete removal of this search tool is what we recommend for you.

You must also know what types of information this search tool is going to record. Specialists say that it should not record any personally-identifiable details, but it will definitely not miss a chance to collect some important non-personally identifiable details if you let it stay. If we believe the information its Privacy Policy contains, these non-personal details will help Search.browsersearch.net to “provide custom, personalized content and information,” “provide and monitor the effectiveness of our Services,” “remember information so that you will not have to re-enter it,” “monitor aggregate metrics,” “diagnose or fix technology problems,” “provide advertising to your browser or device,“ “automatically update the AirFind application”, and, finally, “help you efficiently access your information after you sign in.” This information cannot identify you personally, but it does not mean that you should let a dubious search tool record it because it might be disclosed to disreputable companies or third parties.

You could have set Search.browsersearch.net as your start page/search tool yourself, but we are 99% sure that you are reading this article because you cannot understand why this URL opens each time you launch your web browser. This suggests that the changes have been applied to your browser without your knowledge. In most cases, this happens when users install some kind of untrustworthy app. In this case, the removal of that app is necessary so that the undesirable search tool would disappear from your web browser as well.

Go to check all apps installed on your device if you see Search.browsersearch.net when you open your browser and delete those you know nothing about. If nothing changes, i.e., you still see the undesirable URL open for you, you should delete your browser and install it again. If you wonder whether you can let it stay, our answer is NO.
