  • Hijacks homepage
  • Changes default search engine is a clone of we have written about recently. Like its predecessor, can be called a browser hijacker because it changes the settings of all the browsers, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox by setting itself as the default homepage (it does that without permission). Even though seems to be a powerful search tool, it does not return reliable search results, so we suggest that you do not let this questionable search engine stay in the place of your homepage. According to researchers at, the main reason why you should delete from all your browsers is to make sure that it cannot redirect you to third-party websites and thus expose you to potential threats. You will find out more about this questionable search engine if you read this article from beginning to end. Specialists have also provided some useful information about its removal here. Feel free to use this information.

It does not matter that looks quite trustworthy - we still suggest removing it and then setting another webpage in its place. Yes, this search tool returns search results after a user enters the search query; however, these search results are not fully reliable. If you look at them closer, you will notice that the search results page contains advertisements. It means that not all the search results are based on the search query. Some of them appear on the search results page with an intention of promoting particular third-party websites and increasing their traffic rate only. Unfortunately, this means that users cannot feel safe using too because they might be redirected to untrustworthy third-party websites that are not associated with the search query in any way. We do not say that all the websites promoted by are dangerous; however, we really doubt that you could recognize which of the websites you are taken to are good and which should be left immediately. Therefore, we want you to stop using this search tool.

Researchers cannot say that is a reliable tool for searching the information on the web also because they have found out that this engine is interested in the information about users. We have checked the Privacy Policy for you and found that this search tool collects non-personal information mainly. It includes such details as clicks and visited pages, language preferences, type of browser, etc. It might seem that this information is irrelevant; however, specialists say that search logs, which records day after day, might contain some personal details, especially if you have entered something personal into the search box, so your privacy, theoretically, might be violated. If you wish to prevent this from happening, delete right now. We can assure you that you will not regret it.

We would not believe if you said that you gave the permission to appear on your browser because we know that this browser hijacker usually enters computers without permission and then makes the changes. Research has shown that might be spread in the middle of the software bundle, or it might sneak onto the computer once a user clicks on the pop-up advertisement. This pop-up usually appears on the user’s screen because there is a malicious application installed on the computer. In most cases, programs that show pop-ups are adware. Do not forget to take care of the undesirable program displaying ads after you erase the browser hijacker from your system.

Even though the browser hijacker makes several modifications, it should not be hard to remove it even though it does not have an uninstaller. All you need to do is to reset all the browsers one by one. If you have never done that before, let our manual removal guide help you. If it is not enough, scan your PC with an automatic malware remover. Actually, you should use an automatic tool if you wish to delete all the threats from your PC because the manual removal guide which you will find below this article will help you to remove from browsers only.
