Search.emailaccountlogin.co is available with a browser extension that is supposed to let you access your email account faster; however, it does not seem like it is possible. All the plugin does is provide links to email login pages. No doubt many users bookmark necessary email login websites and those who do not could do so instead of downloading this suspicious search engine and a browser hijacker. What we have in mind is that no matter how you access your email provider’s site you will still have to type in your login name and a password. Therefore, we believe Search.emailaccountlogin.co creators may have exaggerated the extension’s description, and so it might be useless. Talking about its provided search engine, it was reported it could show unreliable advertisements among the results, meaning surfing the Internet with it might cause you trouble. Luckily, the threat can be erased quite quickly with the deletion steps located below. For more information about it, continue reading our report.
As we explained in the paragraph located above this sentence, the browser hijacker should be distributed with a particular browser extension. The plugin we are talking about is known by the name Email Account Login. According to our specialists, it could be distributed through doubtful file-sharing web pages, e.g. descargar.es, filewin.com, filewon.com, malavida.es, and so on. If you know these web pages or visit other similar untrustworthy file-sharing sites, we urge you to keep away from them to avoid threats like Search.emailaccountlogin.co or other potentially dangerous software in the future. The next time you might encounter even a greater threat, and if your system is not protected by a legitimate security tool, the system and all files on the PC could be in danger. Thus, users who care about the system’s safety should be more careful with freeware and the web pages that distribute it.
When the mentioned extension gets installed, Search.emailaccountlogin.co should hijack the user’s browser by replacing his default browser’s homepage, new tab page, or default search engine preferences. The reason we would advise you not to trust this search engine is because it could redirect you to a custom version of Google or other popular search engine and there show you ads injected with the advertisements from the software’s third-party partners. Because we do not know these partners and have no idea where the ads may originate from, there is a possibility some of them might be potentially dangerous. To list a couple of examples, there could be ads with links to scam web pages, websites distributing malware or browser hijackers similar to Search.emailaccountlogin.co, and so on. Naturally, if you click these ads you could be redirected to these sites, and so you might put at risk both the computer and the private data located on it.
If you would replace Search.emailaccountlogin.co with a more trustworthy antimalware tool, you could avoid the risks we just explained earlier. For those who decide to erase the browser hijacker, we can offer our recommended deletion steps located below this paragraph. They will show you how to reset the browser. By doing this, you could remove the suspicious browser extension and the search engine together. Users who do not want to reset the browser could employ a reliable antimalware tool instead. This way you would not have to lose or export the browser plugins and bookmarks you like. Plus, the computer would get cleaned from other possible threats too, and if you update the security tool whenever it is needed, it should keep the system protected.
