Websearch.homesearchapp.info is a search engine that displays a search box and a sponsored ad underneath. Is there anything wrong with this picture? Most popular search engines offer different search tools, like Images or News, and they do not display suspicious, clearly misleading ads. On top of that, if you take a chance and enter a keyword, you will notice that the search tool redirects you to a third-party search engine, such as findamo.com. Whether you encounter a reliable or an unfamiliar search engine, we do not recommend using it, because Websearch.homesearchapp.info is a browser hijacker that could be highly dangerous to your virtual security. Needless to say, we believe that you should delete Websearch.homesearchapp.info.

Our malware researchers did not need to analyze Websearch.homesearchapp.info to known that it is a clone of Websearch.searchisfun.info, Websearch.look-for-it.info, Websearch.searcholic.info, and other infamous Websearch Hijackers. These hijackers require removal, and it is highly likely that you will need to delete them alongside other undesirable programs. Websearch.homesearchapp.info and its clones are mostly distributed using software bundles, and the programs installed with the hijacker include Justplugit adware (e.g., Unideals, YoutubeAdBlocker), as well as potentially unwanted programs Optimizer Pro and EZDownloader.
