Search.easyvideoconverteraccess.com is a browser hijacker that travels along with a doubtful browser plugin known as Easy Video Converter. What you should know is that right after its installation, the application could modify specific browser preferences and change some other settings as well. However, the main change should be the replaced homepage or user’s default search engine. You should be very cautious while using Search.easyvideoconverteraccess.com because it might show you harmful third-party advertisements. There are a couple of other reasons that make us doubt the application's reliability, but we will talk about them further in the article. Since, as you will see, our specialists recommend the browser hijacker's deletion, removal instructions were added to help you eliminate this threat manually.

First of all, let us start with the application’s creators. Both Search.easyvideoconverteraccess.com and the browser extension it might be distributed with were developed by a company known as Sail Machine. This is not the first time we see this name as our researchers have encountered other similar browser hijackers developed by the same company.

Same as the previous clones, the search engine should be distributed with a browser extension. In this case, it is called Easy Video Converter, and the only thing it can offer you is a couple of links leading to web pages with online file converters like online-convert.com, clipchamp.com/en, and other. The plugin could be found on a web page called easyvideoconverteraccess.com/VideoConverter. Unfortunately, its description looks rather exaggerated, and because of it, users might make a wrong impression about the software. For instance, it could sound like the plugin can convert files on its own, when in fact, it works rather differently.

The extension should add a bookmark’s bar with an additional search box below the address bar. Moreover, your homepage or default search engine should be replaced with Search.easyvideoconverteraccess.com. Earlier we advised you to be more careful with this search engine, and the reason we did it is because its displayed results could be modified. According to our specialists, the browser hijacker gathers the results while using yahoo.com, but they might be injected with advertisements from the application’s third-party partners. We cannot say that all of the third-party ads could be harmful, but there might doubtful pop-ups, banners, sponsored links, and other ads leading to malicious web pages. Such sites could distribute similar threats to the browser hijacker or malicious programs like Trojans, ransomware, viruses, and so on.
