- Changes default search engine

We will tell you more about this questionable search engine in this report. You will also find out how to remove it if you read the article from beginning to end.
As you can see, WorldSearchPro.com might record both personal and non-personally identifiable information. It says that it needs to do that to be able to administer the website, personalize it for users, and enable them to use services available on WorldSearchPro.com. Even though it claims that it will not do anything bad with the collected information, there is still a possibility that it will sell it to cyber criminals or will simply use it to provide users with the sponsored content. There is only one solution to the problem – you need to remove WorldSearchPro.com from all your browsers completely and then set a trustworthy search engine instead of it.
We are sure that you have not set WorldSearchPro.com as your default search engine and homepage willingly because it has been found that it usually appears on all the browsers when users install software from the web and do not unmark the particular box on the installation window.
