- Hijacks homepage
- Changes default search engine
Search.searchlf.com is a search engine that will be set in the place of your default homepage and search engine if you install the Login Faster extension that promises to enable users to access their emails with the single click. Of course, you might see the presence of this search engine if the extension promoting it enters the computer without your consent as well. Search.searchlf.com seems to be quite a trustworthy search engine at first because it contains the search box on its main page and returns search results. Also, it contains buttons that will help users to access Gmail, AOL, Yahoo!, and other popular websites. Yes, you will see easy-access buttons at the top of Search.searchlf.com once you install the extension ONLY even though it is said on its official website that it will not only enable users to access their emails faster, but will also help them to save time by allowing them to send emails quicker and easier. Also, Search.searchlf.com might put your system in danger, so you should remove this extension not only because it is quite useless, but also because it is the only way to protect the system from harm. It will become clearer what you have to do to get rid of it after reading this report.
Search.searchlf.com might not look like a bad search engine at first glance. Also, it is based on Yahoo!, which is known to be the legitimate search engine, so users do not even suspect that Search.searchlf.com is an unreliable search tool that might put the system in danger. We cannot say that this search engine is very dangerous itself too; however, it has been noticed that the search results it returns for users after they enter a query are full of commercial ads. If you look at them closer, you will also notice that they differ from those search results provided by reliable search tools, e.g. Google. Ads do not look very dangerous; however, researchers at pcthreat.com have revealed that they might promote untrustworthy services, programs, and products. Also, you might end up on a website containing malicious software once you click on any of them. Some users believe that nothing bad will happen to their computers if they do not click on these advertisements. Well, it is quite true; however, it is basically impossible to say which of these search results are sponsored and which are completely reliable. Therefore, we do not think that it is a good solution to the problem just to ignore them.
