If you are looking for ways to remove Seekmx.com then you have come to the right website. We know that Seekmx.com is a browser hijacker that forcefully changes the homepage and prevents users from changing it to back the initial homepage. The main purpose of this hijacker is to promote a website that is named after it. The privacy policy indicates that the website is affiliated with some mysterious third parties who use Seekmx.com to promote potentially illicit content. Therefore, the website is unreliable and we encourage everyone who has this infection to take action and get rid of it.

It is not exactly clear where this hijacker originates from. But we Suspect that it is either Turkey or China. We have received information that Seekmx.com is disseminated with the help of exceptional software bundling practices. Now, to our knowledge, the hijacker is bundled with other malicious applications, such as adware and fake system utilities. We do not know where exactly the application is disseminated, but we think that it might be featured on piracy websites.

It is likely that the hijacker has been marketed for the Spanish and Portuguese speaking audiences. But its supported languages include not only Spanish and Portuguese but also English, Chinese and Turkish. In any case, Seekmx.com is just for show, since all of the searches are redirected to Google.com anyway. The website will not provide better search results, because that is not what it was designed to do. Its main purpose is to promote commercial content. This can be observed by going to Seekmx.com’s Contact Us subpage at Seekmx.com/contact_us. However, The Privacy Policy states that Browser cookies are used to collect information about the user. The information is allegedly used to personalize the user experience while using the website. It is also said that the cookies are used to deliver third-party ads. Nevertheless, we did not see any commercial content while using the website.

As you can see, Seekmx.com is an aggressive program that forcefully changes the default webpage to a useless website that does not offer anything unique. It simply redirects all searches to Google, so essentially you are using Google’s search engine but the disadvantage is that you may be subjected to third-party ads on various websites that you visit. In addition to that Seekmx.com collects information about you. It is non-personally identifiable, but still, it is used not to benefit you but someone else. Therefore, we think that the most reasonable solution would be to remove Seekmx.com.
