Search.yourinstantsocialhub.com is a search engine that displays a search dialog box and a bunch of quick-access links to popular sites. Although the first link routes to an unknown weather forecast page, other links represent Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram. At the time of research, these links were routing to authentic websites, and it is unlikely that this will change in the future. What we are more concerned about is the search tool. Have you used it already? If you have, you know that it does not offer original search results. On the contrary, it uses a third-party search engine to showcase search results. Well, can you trust them? You will need to read the report to learn the answer because things are not straightforward or one-sided. What we can tell you is that deleting Search.yourinstantsocialhub.com is a good idea. If you are curious only about the removal of this strange search tool, you can check out the last section of the report and the guide at the bottom.

Are you familiar with SaferBrowser? In the corner of the Search.yourinstantsocialhub.com home page, you can see a tag that reads: “Your Instant Social Hub by SaferBrowser.” Your Instant Social Hub is an extension that is most likely to have introduced you to this suspicious search tool. Although the search tool is the only thing that the extension represents, most users install it thinking that it will offer a different kind of service. In fact, it is not clear that homepage settings would be modified at all. Due to this, it is completely reasonable to identify Search.yourinstantsocialhub.com as a browser hijacker. Even if you knew where you were getting yourself into, you might have been forced into changing homepage settings. That is the first sign that this search tool might not be reliable, trustworthy. You should be sure of it when you find that it redirects search queries to Yahoo Search. Note that although the results shown might look authentic and reliable, the hijacker could modify them. Unfortunately, regular search results could show up along with misleading and useless sponsored links. If you do not want to encounter them due to security risks, you need to remove the hijacker ASAP.

If you have reviewed the Privacy Policy supporting Search.yourinstantsocialhub.com, you know that personally identifiable information could be recorded by this hijacker, and that is another good reason to remove it from Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox browsers. When it comes to the removal, you might have to clean your browsers, eliminate data-tracking tools, and erase third-party malware. Just like Search.yourmapscenter.com, Search.yourclassifiedscenter.com, and other clone hijackers, the suspicious Search.yourinstantsocialhub.com is most likely to enter your operating system along with third-party software. Whether or not it is malicious, you will have to find out by doing extensive research or by using a reliable malware scanner. We recommend the latter option because a scanner will not miss any threats, and you will learn about malware much more quickely. Even if you think that you can identify all programs that were bundled together with the hijacker, keep in mind that some malicious programs slither in silently.

What do you think about the removal of Search.yourinstantsocialhub.com? Do you think you can erase it manually or you do think that you should employ an anti-malware tool? Needless to say, we advise the second option because of all other threats and because of your system’s vulnerability. Anti-malware software is, of course, irreplaceable when it comes to keeping your operating system protected in the future, and so you should install it as soon as possible. If you decide to stick with manual elimination at the moment, please research every threat detected by a scanner (you can download a reliable scanner for free by clicking the link below) to know how to get rid of it. The hijacker can be eliminated using the steps below. Our researchers suggest that you will need to replace the homepage on both browsers, but you will only need to eliminate the extension from Mozilla Firefox.
