It was found that Go.next-search.net can be dropped by third-party installers, and Search Protect is often bundled with it. This tool protects Conduit settings, which is why it is suspected that Conduit Ltd. has some sort of control over Go.next-search.net. Even though the creator of this search engine is ClientConnect Ltd., it is possible that Conduit is a partner of this company. All in all, regardless of the creator, you should not interact with this search provider.

Schemers might use this kind of data for malicious scams, which is why their removal if imperative.
