If you have found Search.searchgbv.com set on your Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and/or Google Chrome without your knowledge, your web browsers must have been hijacked. Since the page set looks like an ordinary search provider, users do not hurry to remove it and even start using it for their web searches every day. This is definitely not what we recommend for users. Since browser hijackers never promote reliable search providers, the search tool set on the web browser without permission must be removed as soon as possible. You will need to put some effort into the Search.searchgbv.com removal because it cannot be deleted like an ordinary application. The next paragraph of this report will tell you more about it and then, at the very end of the article, we will tell you what you need to do to delete it. Continue reading!

Search.searchgbv.com does look like a legitimate search provider at first, but, unfortunately, research has clearly shown that it is not exactly what it seems to be. Yes, it has a search box and returns search results. In addition, it contains a bar with quick-access buttons opening blueletterbible.org, biblegateway.com, bible.com, and americanbible.org at the top. We have to agree that it is quite convenient to access websites with the click of a button, but we want that you know that all these websites can be accessed quickly without the help of Search.searchgbv.com, so you can delete it mercilessly. Once it is gone, you could bookmark your favorite websites so that you could open them with the single click. Our specialists do not recommend keeping Search.searchgbv.com or using it to perform web searches because it has turned out that it might return untrustworthy search results. We consider search results untrustworthy when they are modified. That is, they look like ordinary search results, but they only drive traffic to third-party websites. We cannot promise that all promoted third-party websites will be reliable so be very careful. To tell you the truth, it might be impossible to avoid all those untrustworthy search results because they do not differ much from ordinary search results. This means that you will be safe only if you get rid of Search.searchgbv.com and start using a reliable search provider instead.

If you are going to keep Search.searchgbv.com, there is one more thing you need to know. It has turned out that this browser hijacker actively collects information about users. You can find all details it records listed in its Privacy Policy document, but if you do not have time for this, you should know that it will record the type of your browser, geographic location, Internet Service Provider, IP address, operating system type, websites visited, links clicked, and even search queries. It will record ALL your search queries, so if you do not want any personal details to reach the author of Search.searchgbv.com, i.e. Polarity Technologies Ltd. and third parties whom this company will disclose the gathered data, stop using Search.searchgbv.com today. If you do not use it to perform web searches, there is no point in keeping it set on browsers either.

We do not believe that you see Search.searchgbv.com open to you when you launch your web browser because you have set it on it consciously. It is more likely that your browser’s settings have been altered without your knowledge. According to researchers working at 411-spyware.com, browser hijackers developed by Polarity Technologies Ltd. are spread through malicious websites, e.g. filewon.com, filewin.com, malavida.es, and others primarily. For example, users might download a software bundle from these websites and then agree with the installation of the browser hijacker without knowing that. Browser hijackers are not the only infections that try to slither onto users’ computers unnoticed, so it would be smart to have a security application installed on the system.

If your browsers have already been hijacked, i.e. you see Search.searchgbv.com each time you launch your web browser, it means that you need to take action today in order to undo the changes applied. Once Search.searchgbv.com is gone, you could set a new homepage you like. You should not find the removal of this browser hijacker complicated because resetting browsers is all you will need to do to get rid of it manually.
