Search.chedot.com is a questionable search engine that might replace your homepage and search engine on all the browsers (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox). In most cases, these changes are applied without permission, so Search.chedot.com is classified as a browser hijacker. Even though this search engine mainly falls into this category, there are cases when users are informed about the changes, but they agree with them unknowingly. Either way, it would be best that you eliminate Search.chedot.com and start using another search engine instead of it. We know that you might find the removal of Search.chedot.com really difficult, so we are going to help users with this further in this article.

Researchers at 411-spyware.com have managed to find out that you might encounter either Search.chedot.com or chedotgame.com/search. Both these search engines are very similar, so it is a must to eliminate them if they ever appear on your browsers. You might wonder why we do not recommend trusting any of these search engines; however, you should know that the answer is really simple – they might show modified search results to you. Besides, you might be provided with ads. For example, if you see Search.chedot.com on your browsers, you might see third-party links incorporated among the search results and you will see ads on the right-side of the search results page. We have observed that sponsored search results will be placed at the top of the page in order to make you click on them, whereas ads that are visible at the top-right side of the page tend to advertise various interesting products and services. You should not click on any of those third-party ads because you might be taken to other web pages that are not the most trustworthy, e.g. contain malicious software. Yes, it might be surprising at first sight that the search engine which is powered by Google can provided untrustworthy search results; however, you should know that the publisher of Search.chedot.com has simply modified it slightly. It is better to use genuine search engines if you want to be guaranteed that you do not see unreliable search results.

Specialists who have tested Search.chedot.com have found that the Privacy Policy page of this search engine does not work. In fact, we believe that it does not exist at all. Unfortunately, this means that it is unclear how Search.chedot.com is going to treat your privacy. In the opinion of our specialists, this search engine will act in a similar manner to other previously created search engines. In other words, it will gather information about users’ activities on the web and their habits. It is very likely that this search engine will gather such details as IP (Internet Protocol) address, search queries, time and data of your PC, Internet service provider, approximate location, the version of Windows OS installed on the system, and other similar details. These details do not seem to be important at all; however, you should not forget that such suspicious search engines might also gather personal information without permission as well. In most cases, they are interested in a user’s name, surname, and address. If you do not wish to reveal any facts about yourself, you need to remove Search.chedot.com from your browsers and set a more trustworthy tool, e.g. Yahoo! or Google instead.

Our researchers have not managed to find the official website of Search.chedot.com, so they believe that users do not download this software themselves. As they have revealed, this program usually comes bundled with other untrustworthy programs. In addition, you might notice that it has appeared on your browsers if you install Chedot, which is considered to be a potentially unwanted program. Unfortunately, many users believe that this program is really trustworthy because it advertises itself as a very speedy browser. If you find it difficult to recognize unreliable software, you should install a security tool on your computer in order not to allow undesirable software to enter your system again.

You will be able to set another search engine on your browsers if you eliminate Search.chedot.com. Below provided instructions will help you to do that. In case you still see the presence of this search engine, scan your system with an automatic malware remover.
