Blekko

Even though Blekko search-bar is advertised to produce spam-free search results, you should not install or trust this program running alongside your Internet browser. If you do, soon enough your home page will be switched to blekko.com and your search results will be compromised or filtered. This means that ultimately your browsing experience will be corrupted, invaluable or even dangerous to your virtual identity. Please keep reading to find out how exactly the program can put you into such danger and what you need to do to have Blekko removed from your operating system and your Internet browser.

Like many browser extensions, add-ons and plug-ins, Blekko will not be detected as malicious by all security software, and this is due to the fact that the application itself is not dangerous. Nonetheless, the program is supported through online advertisement which can easily be linked to cyber criminals, even if you think that your search results are spam-free. If any of the online advertisements were managed by schemers and you clicked on them, cyber criminals could implement tracking cookies and other dangerous plug-ins to access personal information, previously recorded by blekko.com. You should have no doubts that the application is capable of recording information about you, and here is the proof found in Blekko terms of use web page:

terms of service
If you use the Site in violation of this Agreement, blekko may, in its sole discretion, retain all data collected from your use of the Site. […]You should not provide your password(s) to anyone else and are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password(s) used for the Services. Therefore, you agree that you are solely responsible for all usage and activities under your account.

If you do not want schemers to remove your Internet privileges, redirect your searches, implement adware and drive-by downloads to install more malware onto your computer, you need to remove Blekko as soon as possible. Even if you know how to delete the infection on your own, we urge you to implement automatic removal tool SpyHunter to scan your PC and delete all potentially running spyware.
