Has your search provider recently been changed to Websearch.searchplazanow.info? If so, then you have a browser hijacker on your hands that you should remove immediately. We can all agree that adware is annoying, but browser hijackers are on a whole different level. Unlike adware, browser hijackers enter the computer using covert methods, but the user will be fully aware of its presence once it is installed, because it will immediately change the homepage and search engine. Furthermore, the changes made by a browser hijacker are not so easy to change back. Websearch.searchplazanow.info is both annoying and dangerous and you should delete it in order keep your computer safe. We must warn users that this hijacker has a lot of clones that basically perform the same functions.
Its clones include Websearch.thesearchpage.info, Websearch.searchtheglobe.info, Websearch.helpmefindyour.info, and many others that share a similar name. As mentioned, it enters the system secretly without the user having the slightest idea that it’s there. Once the hijacker enters the computer it immediately changes browser’s homepage and search engine to Websearch.searchplazanow.info, making it impossible for the user to change the modifications via browser settings, because after resetting he browser, the hijacker will change them back to Websearch.searchplazanow.info. We think that the user must not tolerate this hijacker and should delete it as soon as possible.
It must be noted that the primary purpose of Websearch.searchplazanow.info is to force the user to use its website and search engine. The main website features sponsored advertisements that if clicked, might lead you to an infected website from which all kinds of malware may end up infecting your PC, because the developers of this hijacker do not endorse the ads they promote. Apart from unreliable ads, the hijacker has the ability to alter search results that promote certain websites, which might redirect you to infected pages. The main reason the user should remove Websearch.searchplazanow.info is that it can spy on the user. The hijacker might collect information about browsing history, IP address, search quarries, email address and so on.
No one likes to be spied on, because that’s an infringement of privacy rights. Users should not permit Websearch.searchplazanow.info collect information about them no matter how insignificant it may seem to be. We urge users not to click any ads promoted by this hijacker and remove it immediately, because it might infect your computer with even more dangerous hijackers and other malware.
