Zingload.com is a search engine that should gather the best results from Google, Yahoo, and other sites. However, the search engine is rather suspicious, and you should not take any chances with it. If you need any assistance with its removal, you can take a look at the instructions below the article. You should be aware that Zingload.com results have additional advertising, sponsored links, etc. It seems that the ads are from unreliable third-party web pages, and you may be redirected to them if you click advertisements or sponsored links. This search engine works only on the Google Chrome browser, so it should not appear on Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or other applications. If you want to know more details about the site, you should keep reading the article.

The search engine might come bundled with other suspicious applications. Probably you have noticed before that sometimes the installation wizard suggests additional programs, toolbars, etc. If you download free software from suspicious sources, there is a chance that it will be bundled with unwanted programs such as browser hijackers, adware, potentially unwanted programs, and so on. Our researchers think that some users might install Zingload.com through bundled installers as well.

If you go to the website and slide to the bottom of the page, you will find links to the site’s End User License Agreement (EULA) and Privacy Policy documents. These statements are very important if you want to know the application’s goals and how it will affect you or your computer. For instance, the search engine’s EULA states that: “The Sites provide links to other sites on the Internet operated by third parties. Because zingload has no control over such sites, you acknowledge and agree that zingload is not responsible for the availability of such external sites, and does not endorse and is not responsible or liable for any content, advertising, products, services or materials on or available through such sites.” This means that the search engine’s creators advertise third-party content, but they do not review if it is safe to use for their users. As a consequence, you take all the responsibility if something goes wrong while you visit these third-party sites.

This search engine provides the same tools as other similar applications, but it also promotes unreliable websites. If you want to feel safe while you browse the Internet, you should consider removing this search engine. Its removal might seem difficult, so you should take a look at the manual removal instructions below and decide for yourself if this option is best for you. If you choose to delete it manually, you will have to review particular files located in folders of Google Chrome’s extensions. These folders have random names so we cannot say which one is created by Zingload.com. Once you find this folder, you can delete it and by doing so, you will remove the search engine. On the other hand, you can install a legitimate antimalware tool and eliminate the application’s created files automatically. If you have some questions related to the search engine or its removal process, feel free to leave us a comment below.
