Afterward, our researchers recommend removing too. The tool was classified as a browser hijacker, meaning it might be possibly dangerous. The research shows it could display modified search results that might contain pop-ups, banners, or other irritating ads leading to unknown web pages. We do not say you will necessarily receive malicious ads, but there is such a chance, and if users do not wish to take this risk, they should not hesitate to get rid of this browser hijacker. Especially, when there are quite a few safer search engines to pick. The removal process should not be too complicated, and to make it even easier we are adding our recommended deletion steps at the end of this report.

Our researchers cannot be one hundred percent sure, but they believe should be spread with suspicious similarly titled browser extensions or other doubtful programs available on various file-sharing web pages, P2P networks, unreliable advertisements, etc. Once the program it is bundled with is installed, it should settle in on the user’s default browser by altering specific settings or preferences, e.g. your homepage, default search engine, and so on. Thus, you may notice the threat each time you launch the browser, start a new search, or open a new tab. It looks like the application might be able to change these settings by altering particular browser data, e.g. prefs.js (Mozilla Firefox), Start Page (Internet Explorer), etc.

Before deciding whether it is smart to use this tool to search the Internet it would be a good idea to read its Privacy Policy and End User License Agreement documents. While reading them, we have learned that the browser hijacker and the advertisers it works with could gather particular data when the user is surfing the Internet. For example, they might record your visited websites, clicked advertisements, purchased goods, phrases used to search the Internet, and so on. Needless to say, all of the collected information could be used to display advertising content and generate advertising revenue from your clicks. However, we doubt the ads may display could be beneficial. On the contrary, without knowing what they might promote there is a chance some of them could be malicious, e.g. they may promote other browser hijackers, adware, ransomware, viruses, scam web pages, etc.

Provided, you do not want to see any suspicious advertising content with the search results, we advise you to get rid of at once. If you take a look at the steps located at the end of this text, you will find out how to erase the threat manually.
