Searchnu.com is a search engine that some computer users and malware researchers categorize as a browser hijacker. It dubbed as such due to the fact that it is promoted via free applications, including BullVid and iLivid. The installers of the free programs suggest that the user installs Search-Results toolbar, and change the home page and search provider of Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. It is advisable to remove searchnu.com as this search engine can display annoying advertisements and monitor your browsing habits.

Searchnu.com is owned by Bandoo Media, and it promotes four websites, two of which you are verily likely to be familiar with. The startup page of the search engine contains links to Facebook, Youtube, ftalk.com, and the online gaming website fantastigames.com. We advise you against browsing fanstastigames.com, as the website will offer you to install an ad-supported application. As a result, you may be provided with third-party advertisements.

What is more, you will be redirected to Ask.com, where a lot of paid advertisements are displayed. By displaying sponsored links, websites owners attempt to increase the traffic to their websites and earn more money. However, some of the links might direct you to irrelevant or even insecure web pages where your privacy and the computer may be put in danger.
