Secure-finder.org is a website you will find set as your homepage and search engine on Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome browsers if you install the browser extension Secure Finder on your computer. Users do not always install it willingly on their browsers, but there are people who intentionally download it because they believe that it can enable them to surf the web anonymously. Generally speaking, users install this extension because they expect it to act in a beneficial way, but, unfortunately, the majority of them get disappointed when they see that it has changed their homepages, New Tab pages, and default search tools on their browsers. Secure-finder.org is set as homepage, default search engine, and the New Tab page. People do not know anything about these changes before the installation of the browser extension Secure Finder, so they find the presence of a new website quite surprising. This website should allow users to search the web anonymously, but we cannot confirm that it is really going to work the way it promises to, so do not keep it on your browsers if you have not set it willingly.
Secure-finder.org is promoted as a search tool that does not store, collect, or share any personally identifiable information. Even though it is quite a useful feature, it is unclear whether it will really not gather information about users. Also, in the opinion of specialists at 411-spyware.com, it is not worth keeping Secure-finder.org set on browsers and using it as a default search tool to find the information on the web because it is powered by plusnetwork.com, which cannot be considered a trustworthy search tool. You will see Secure-finder.org search results after entering a query in the box of Secure-finder.org, but since not all the search results provided by plusnetwork.com are reliable, you might be provided with untrustworthy search results too. Security specialists are worried about advertisements placed on the plusnetwork.com page the most. It might be true that not all of them are trustworthy, meaning that users might end up on corrupted third-party websites. Even though Secure-finder.org promises not to record any information about users, these third-party websites might try to find out more information about your interests, habits, favorite websites, and much more. You might even be asked to enter personal details (e.g. name, surname, and address). Never provide this information on third-party websites you visit for the first time because this information might be used by cyber criminals for various fraudulent purposes.
According to specialists at 411-spyware.com, users can get the browser extension promoting Secure-finder.org from the Chrome Web Store (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/secure-finder/oejmjgpcjdhkfogbaeacbilelabdkckc) or they might find Secure-finder.org set on browsers after the installation of a software bundle from a third-party website (torrent or file-sharing websites). Most probably, the Secure Finder extension travels inside this bundle with free applications so that it could enter computers unnoticed. Research has shown that the majority of people who have already encountered Secure-finder.org live in India, Pakistan, Angola, Indonesia, and Brazil, but users cannot feel safe if they live on the other side of the world too because the extension promoting this website is spread in software bundles and might enter any computer. Other untrustworthy applications, even malware, might sneak onto your computer in a software bundle too. It is not always easy to prevent undesirable software from entering the system, so it is highly advisable to install a security application. It should be reputable to protect your PC from malicious software.
