If Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, an Safari settings have been changed unexpectedly, and now they all open a new website when you launch any of them, there is no doubt that your MAC computer has been hijacked. In other words, a browser hijacker has illegally entered the computer and changed all browsers’ settings without your knowledge. You should find only two major settings changed: should become your new homepage and default search engine on all your browsers. It does not surprise us at all that so many users decide not to do anything about its sudden appearance because it looks like any other ordinary search provider. That is, there is a search box in the middle of this page. It even allows users to perform searches under Images, Videos, News, and Shopping categories, so we are sure that some users find this search provider quite beneficial as well. We do not say that it does not look useful at all, but, unfortunately, we still cannot confirm that it is a legitimate search tool, so if you have  already discovered it set as your new homepage and search engine, you should eliminate it as soon as possible and then start using Google, Yahoo!, or another trustworthy search tool. Specialists say that it might be quite a challenge to remove from browsers, but it, of course, does not mean that it is impossible to do that. should not be used as a default search tool despite the fact that it seems to be a legitimate search provider at first glance because the chances are high that it will show untrustworthy search results to you. According to our researchers who have analyzed this search page set by the browser hijacker, it might display third-party links that might take users to potentially malicious websites. Untrustworthy software from these websites might be installed straight onto your computer if you simply surf such a website. You might experience privacy-related problems as well. We want to help you to avoid all those programs that might arise out of using to perform web searches, which is why we suggest that you remove this search tool as soon as possible. We are sure it will not take long to find another search provider to replace it with, so you should not postpone its removal. Remember, it might already be too late to erase it the next day.

Malicious software creators have started developing more and more infections that work on MAC computers. Luckily, it is already known that they are usually distributed via the so-called malicious software bundles. Most likely, the browser hijacker has been presented to you as an additional offer too. If you download many free programs from the web, you should install them on your machine very attentively because untrustworthy applications are often spread together with free software. We do not say that it is always easy to notice that bad software is trying to enter the computer and prevent it from doing that, so the installation of a security application would be a smart move, in our opinion. Unfortunately, we cannot promise that all applications advertised as powerful security tools are trustworthy as well, so double-check the downloaded security application before you install it on your computer.

It is usually possible to remove search tools set by browser hijackers by resetting all affected browsers to default settings, so you should start the removal from restoring Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Safari settings. You should consult our manual removal guide (it is located below this article) if you do not know where to start. Unfortunately, we cannot promise that this method will be effective in all the cases. If you still see after you reset your browsers, you should use an automated tool. One scan with it and the untrustworthy search tool will be gone. You cannot use any tool you like – it must work on MAC computers and, needless to say, it must be fully trustworthy.
