Searchjourney.net (nt.searchjourney.net) will be set as your default search engine and you will see it every time you open the New Tab page after the installation of the Search Journey extension. The extension itself is available for download at the Chrome Web Store (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/search-journey/hjbibgljoicfolbpfbjeflfiemiojcfo) and addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/searchjourney-newtab/?src=search (the official site for extensions for Mozilla Products). On top of that it can be downloaded from its official website searchjourney.net. It seems that Search Journey is primarily targeted at people whose default browsers are Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox because it only works on these browsers. If you see that Searchjourney.net is there every time you open your browsers, it means that you have to hurry to remove the extension. It is necessary to make it disappear for the sake of the system’s safety. Of course, you will have no other choice than to remove this questionable extension if you wish to change the settings of your browsers, i.e. to set another search engine and change the New Tab page settings.

Searchjourney.net is very similar to SearchAdventure.net and trendio.net. In addition, it has been found that the extension that promotes it belongs to the SuperWeb family of threats. Therefore, specialists at 411-spyware.com have decided to thoroughly test the Searchjourney.net search engine. Even though the extension should “enhance your web experience” and enable you to “search easily and efficiently from your new tab,” specialists have noticed that it is not that beneficial. Besides, the search engine it will set is going to display the modified search results for you. To be more specific, you will see the modified Yahoo! search results. In other words, there will be links and advertisements inserted among the legitimate search results. As Searchjourney.net shows legitimate-looking Yahoo! search results, people do not even suspect that they can cause harm to their computers. If you wonder how this can happen as well, you should know that you might end up on a bad website after clicking on any of these third-party links provided for you together the decent search results. It is not that easy to recognize these ads; however, it is known that the content of websites you will be taken to might not be associated with the phrase you have entered into the search box of Searchjourney.net at all.

Moreover, Searchjourney.net cannot also be trusted because it is going to record details about users. In addition, the collected information might be shared with third parties. If you read the Privacy Policy document available on the official website of the Search Journey extension, you will immediately notice this information: “We may collect information that can personally identify you, such as your name and email address, as well as other information that does not personally identify you. Collected data may be used, supplemented, and shared with other parties for business, commercial, or marketing purposes.” As all types of information are going to be recorded and then shared with third parties, specialists say that there is a risk of experiencing problems associated with the privacy. Of course, you are the only one who can decide whether or not to keep the Search Journey extension installed; however, we suggest that you remove it because it is rather risky to keep it, and it is not as beneficial as it claims to be.

As we have mentioned in the beginning, the extension that sets Searchjourney.net can be downloaded from three sources; however, it has been found that only a small number of users download this piece of software willingly, which means that, in most cases, it sneaks onto computers without permission. It is a must to ensure the system’s safety in the future in order not to encounter undesirable software again. Simply install a reputable tool on your PC and your computer will be safe.

Searchjourney.net appears on your browsers because the Search Journey extension enters the system. Therefore, it will be enough to delete that extension in order to restore the settings of your default search engine and New Tab page.
