Category: Browser Hijackers is a new possible threat source from the notorious Polarity family. This new browser hijacker is not even that new since it is more like an identical clone of Such clones are not strangers to this huge family of hijackers and potentially unwanted programs as most of the members are either very similar to each other or exact copies, including and Having this useless featured search page in your browsers could pose a threat to your system security as you could be exposed to unreliable third-party web content. This hijacker offers you easy access to your e-mail servers and account; however, you can easily use the bookmarking function of your browsers to do just that. In other words, this search page is totally useless for you. It is also important to know that there is a good chance that it enters your computer along with other malware infections. If you would like to put an end to these multiple threats, as a first step, you should remove from your browsers and then, take care of all other infections.

This browser hijacker, similarly to its predecessors in the family, has a promotional page,, which is rather simple. You can directly install this search engine if you click "Continue." As a matter of fact, this page is a bit tricky and misleading since it makes you believe that by clicking this button you will be able to open your chosen e-mail account. However, instead, you will install this questionable browser extension. It is also possible to install it directly via the Chrome web store, But be prepared for a surprise whenever you are installing a Polarity product, because you could be taken to a new tab or new page where another useless tool could be pushed for you to install. You may also be led to believe that your original installation process has not finished and you need to install this other product in order to finish it. This is a rather deceptive way to promote a tool; thus, we suggest that you delete

But there is more to this browser hijacker, of course. We have found it spreading via freeware bundles as well, which is obviously a worse case. If you install a bundle, there is a good chance that you will rush the process and go for quick installation, and install a bunch of malicious threats on top of your targeted free software. You can easily download such an infected software package if you use suspicious torrent and freeware sites as your source. If you have never visited such sites, though, you can still drop a bundle when you click on unsafe third-party advertisements while browsing the web. You do not even need to land on a suspicious site filled with annoying flashy banner and pop-up ads to get infected because if there are malware threats (e.g., adware) on your system, you can be exposed to corrupt content anytime you go online. This is why it is essential that you run a good malware scanner after you delete

If you need to access your e-mail accounts frequently, you may think that such a browser extension could be a great idea. This search page will be set as your homepage and new tab page as well, so it will be available anytime you open your main browsers, including Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Google Chrome. We need to emphasize again that you can always use the bookmarking function of your browsers, which is a built-in function so it is all safe. Using this browser extension can present to you unreliable web content, which could lead to further infections or worse. This browser hijacker may collect information about you and your online activities only to use it to target you with tailored content, which means third-party ads and sponsored links that may not be reliable. Your searchers are redirected to a Yahoo search results page where you may click on corrupt content and end up infecting your computer or being scammed by crooks. This is why we suggest that you remove from your PC as soon as possible.

Basically, you need to remove this browser extension from your affected browsers if you want to put an end to the possible threats. We have prepared the necessary instructions below. If you follow these steps, you can easily tackle this issue. However, this will not solve all your system security problems just like that. It could take much more time if you are planning to hunt down each and every malware infection manually. We advise you to use a reliable anti-malware program like SpyHunter to do this job for you automatically and to protect your PC from future threats as well.
