websearch.homesearch-hub.info is a webpage directly related to websearch.lookforithere.info and websearch.searchrocket.info. It is a search engine that provides customized search service and at first glance it seems that there is nothing wrong with it, but quite often this website is considered to be a part of a browser hijacker infection.

Therefore, do not hesitate to remove websearch.homesearch-hub.info immediately.

This website does not make use of Trojans or other computer infections to enter a new system. Most often websearch.homesearch-hub.info enters your PC together with freeware downloads that you find at third party websites.

Take note that the longer websearch.homesearch-hub.info stays set as your default home page, the more customized these commercial advertisements become. That is so, because the application keeps track of your web browsing habits and in the long run it displays ads that should correspond to your likes and preferences.

However, almost any third party can embed ads into websearch.homesearch-hub.info and it can present security issues as cyber criminals could embed ads with outgoing links to malicious websites that host malware.
