Searchtodo.com acts and looks like an ordinary search engine; however, specialists cannot call it a trustworthy search tool after testing this web page. It is because it tends to hijack all browsers in order to change their settings without a user’s consent. It has been revealed that Searchtodo.com is targeted at users living in Brazil mainly. Of course, specialists cannot promise that users living on the other side of the world will never encounter Searchtodo.com. Browser hijackers are sneaky threats, so you might not even notice when Searchtodo.com replaces your homepages and search engines on all the browsers installed on your computer. If you really see Searchtodo.com set on browsers, it means that a browser hijacker has successfully entered your computer. Delete Searchtodo.com because it is not a reliable search engine. There are two main reasons why it cannot be called a trustworthy search tool even though it looks reliable and returns search results like other search engines that are considered to be trustworthy. Find out more information about that in the following paragraphs.

First of all, researchers at 411-spyware.com cannot call Searchtodo.com a reliable search engine because it shows search results from the PortalSepeti.com web page, which is known to be untrustworthy. Since all the searches are redirected to this unreliable website, it is very likely that promotional links and ads will be displayed on the same page together with trustworthy search results. In most cases, users do not notice these ads and, consequently, click on them. Security experts say that it might be rather dangerous to do that because these ads and links might cause redirections to bad third-party web pages. These web pages might contain anything, from untrustworthy external links to malicious software. Since it is not that easy to recognize these ads and links shown by Searchtodo.com, you will be sure that you will never click on them again only after you fully delete Searchtodo.com. Once it disappears from your Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox browsers, you could set another more reliable search tool in its place.

Searchtodo.com is said to be one of the untrustworthy search tools also because it might collect information about users. First of all, it is said in the Privacy Policy that “any personal information that you disclose while visiting any of our websites is collected by Searchtodo.com.” For example, if you enter something personal into the search box Searchtodo.com, it is very likely that this information will be recorded. Of course, this questionable search tool not only records personal details, but is also going to gather the so-called non-personally identifiable information, for instance, IP address, demographic information, click-through data, and a bunch of other details associated with users’ activities on the web. The collected data might then be shared with third parties. If you do not like how Searchtodo.com acts, you can stop it only by getting rid of it, as it is stated in the Privacy Policy document: “If you do not agree to this Privacy Policy, please do not use this site.” We are sure you will definitely not regret getting rid of this search engine because you could set a more trustworthy search tool in its place.

Research has shown that Searchtodo.com is very similar to such untrustworthy search tools as Searchult.com and Navegaki.com.br the way it acts, so it must be true that they are all distributed the same as well. Researchers at 411-spyware.com have decided to carry out research to find out whether or not it is true. Research has revealed that all these search tools are usually set on browsers without permission, so they are typical browser hijackers. In the case of Searchtodo.com, there is basically no doubt that you see it because you have installed software via the Apps Installer SL or another bad downloader. This might happen again in the future if you do not do anything, so it is highly recommended to install security software right now. If you do as we say, another browser hijacker or a different malicious application could not enter your computer ever again.

Searchtodo.com will disappear from all your browsers after you reset them all to their default settings; however, before you do that, you should check the shortcuts of browsers and fix their Target lines, if you notice that this browser hijacker has applied changes to them. You should use our instructions for this matter. Alternatively, you can use a legitimate malware remover, such as SpyHunter. The automatic method is, of course, faster and much easier, but it is up to you how to eliminate this malicious application.
