Search Know

Search Know is an application that belongs to the SuperWeb family. If you visit its official website searchitknow.com, you will see that it promises to be your “online guide.” Unfortunately, we have not noticed anything beneficial about Search Know. There is only thing clear about it – it is an advertising-supported application that will add extensions to Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome and then will start showing commercial advertisements. This application does not really try to hide the fact that it is ad-supported because it informs users on its official website that it is going to “occasionally display ads on some webpages to keep Search Know free.” It might seem at first sight that ads are shown for the noble goal; however, you will soon find out that they are very annoying. Of course, they will not do anything beneficial for you too because they are shown to you in order to generate money for the publisher of Search Know.

Advertisements which will keep appearing on your screen after you install Search Know are coupons, shopping suggestions, and pop-ups mainly; however, you might notice other kinds of advertisements on your screen too. Do not click on them in any way because they might redirect you to corrupted web pages that are very prevalent these days. Some of those ads will be really decent (they simply promote products and services); however, it is an enormous task to identify those bad ads and separate them from the good ones. Specialists at pcthreat.com have also found that Search Know will not only display advertisements but might also collect different kinds of information about your activities on the web and your shopping habits. It is said that these details help to show relevant advertisements; however, if you still do not want to share details about yourself with anyone, you should get rid of Search Know as soon as you can.
