You might have installed StreamSearchs for several reasons. You have been convinced that it offers an enhanced search experience. You though that it has something to do with free streaming. You found it bundled with something else that you wanted to install. It is also possible that you do not remember installing it at all. Our team of cybersecurity researchers can assure you that this extension is not useful, and regardless of why you installed it, we are sure that you are better off without it. Perhaps you have already come to this conclusion, given that you have found this removal guide. However, if you still have questions about the PUP – potentially unwanted program – or whether or not you want to get rid of it, you should keep reading. Of course, if you scroll down, you can already find a guide that shows how to delete StreamSearchs.

Chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/streamsearchs/idofkddahmckccdgohfjggooafgbohjn is where the installer of StreamSearchs can be found. According to our researchers, the installer could be introduced to Chrome users via get.streamsearchs.com or install.streamsearchs.com, but, ultimately, we cannot know how this PUP entered your operating system. We know for sure that portal.streamsearchs.com does not offer an installer. In fact, we do not know if this page is integrated by the PUP at all. This is not surprising because SearchTheConverter, PDFSearchio, SearchConverters, and all other clones of StreamSearchs work just the same. They all have pages whose interfaces offer attractive widgets, but they are not used by the PUPs themselves. So, what do these PUPs offer? Default search provider changes. Every PUP has its own search provider, and the one we are discussing in this report introduces feed.streamsearchs.com. Of course, you cannot delete it. If you want to get rid if it, you have to delete the PUP itself.

We do not trust the search tool provided by StreamSearchs because we know that it redirects to Yahoo Search to show modified results. If it modified the results of an unknown search engine, less people would trust the service. However, Yahoo Search is used by many, and these are the users who might not even notice that their search provider had been changed. What’s the risk of that? If the user interacts with the shown results, they are likely to interact with sponsored content, and we cannot vouch for this service. The Privacy Policy informs that both personal and non-personal information can be collected and shared for advertising purposes, but it does not reveal what parties are involved. Obviously, it is your choice whether you want to keep using StreamSearchs, but we recommend that you switch to a search provider that is 100% transparent and trustworthy. Since the PUP also tracks data, we recommend clearing browsing data too.

So, how does one go about removing StreamSearchs? Some people use the help of more experienced friends, while others choose to take matters into their own hands. This PUP is certainly not the kind of threat that causes big issues, and you should be able to get rid of it with the help of the guide below. When we analyzed this PUP, it only affected Google Chrome, and so that is the browser that is included in our guide. If you find that you need to delete StreamSearchs from a different browser, we can add the instructions you need, just let us know you need it. If you do not think that you will be able to recognize PUPs and more serious threats yourself in the future, securing your system with a trusted anti-malware tool is important. Install this tool now, and you will have the PUP removed automatically. Not only that, you will also have the operating system and browsers protected, which is helpful and necessary regardless of whether you are experienced or not.
