Www.search-privacy.info is a questionable search engine that is distributed using a browser extension called Search Privacy which is rather pointless to have, since, apart from acting as a vehicle for Www.search-privacy.info, it does not have any other features. The extension was configured to replace your browser’s default search engine with it automatically. Hence, you do not have a say in the matter which is unacceptable. So if this search engine has somehow entered your PC, then you should remove it. Another important point we want to make is that this search engine can show you ads and promotional links of questionable nature. Please read this whole article for more information.

Www.search-privacy.info was created by a secretive company because it features no information about it. There is no company name, address or contact details. This is not surprising since many shady search engines are like that. Therefore, we will not dwell on its origins any longer. The fact is that it comes from an unknown source is enough to regard it as unreliable.

As mentioned in the introduction, Www.search-privacy.info is distributed with Search Privacy, a browser extension for Google Chrome that will soon be available for Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. Currently, Search Privacy is available for download from its dedicated site at Info.searchprivacy.co and the Chrome Web Store because Google does not find it unreliable. Nevertheless, that can change at any time. We also suspect that this extension is distributed via software bundles that may trick you into installing Search Privacy.

When you install it on Chrome, the browser will inform you that Www.search-privacy.info will “Read and change all your data on the websites you visit” and “Communicate with cooperating websites.” Hence, it will collect information about you and use it for reaching its goal of subjecting you to tailored advertisements. The Privacy Policy indicates that this search engine can collect information such as your IP address, search terms, ads clicked, user agent, and user search preferences (stored as a cookie). This information will be used for all kinds of things but, most importantly, it will serve to “improve search results” and “enable SearchPrivacy to keep track of user search settings.” In other words, it will customize the search results to place promotional links and ads. The problem is, however, that there is no information about the content it promotes, so there is no telling whether it is safe to interact with.

Search Privacy automatically replaces Chrome’s search engine to Www.search-privacy.info once it is installed. This is done only because its secretive developers want you to use this search engine and interact and click the links to their promoted websites that generate them advertising income. However, there is a possibility that this search engine will redirect you to sites that contain malicious downloads. The sites might feature malware such as spyware, adware, and Trojans. So if you want to avoid being subjected to this kind of content, you should consider removing Www.search-privacy.info and its browser extension.

In summary, Www.search-privacy.info is a search engine that was developed by a shady company and is distributed using both legitimate and not so legitimate methods. Its developers want to install it on your PC secretly and replace your browser’s search engine to subject you to ads that generate them advertising revenue. To keep your computer out of harm’s way, we suggest removing this search engine.
