You can find a promotional web page, youremailnow.com, where you can actually directly install this useless browser extension by clicking on the “Free Download” button.

Here you can see that nearly 50 thousand users have actually installed this tool already, which is quite a high number. But, to be quite frank, reading through the reviews alleged users have made makes us wonder about the authenticity of those. For example, a comment goes as far as saying “It’s so epic”; well, one out of the three actually. In any case, we must mention that even though you can find this tool in the web store, it does not make it reliable or useful either.
Nevertheless, we have found that this browser hijacker can also be found spreading in a bundled version that may contain a number of other malware threats. Installing this version could bring adware programs, other hijackers, as well as potentially unwanted applications onto your system. It is possible to download such malicious bundles when you land on suspicious websites full of third-party ads, such as pornographic pages, gaming, torrent, and shareware sites. Clicking on any questionable content on such pages can result in your downloading a dangerous package of infections. Another option is that there are adware programs or other infections on your system that can display unreliable third-party ads (banners, pop-ups, and text links). All in all, if this hijacker has found a way to your computer, it is advisable that you check your system for malware infections after you delete Search.youremailnow.com from your browsers.
When you let this hijacker on board, it sets search.youremailnow.com or home.youremailnow.com as your new homepage, new tab page, and search engine in your Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer browsers. This is quite undesirable since you will be exposed to this annoying tool and its potentially unsafe content every time you launch your browsers. This extension offers you a fake toolbar filled with buttons that lead to popular e-mail providers, including Yahoo, Gmail, and Hotmail. However, the main problem is presented by the search engine itself. As a matter of fact, this search site redirects your search requests to a possibly modified Yahoo search results page. Finding yourself on a reputable search page obviously makes you feel safe and you would think that you can click on any content without any risk. Well, you would be wrong in this case. Unfortunately, this hijacker can inject third-party ads and links among the legitimate results and these may be potentially harmful as long as they come from unreliable third parties, such as cyber criminals.
