It might seem that it can significantly improve the web browsing experience; however, as research has shown, it is not true at all. The first thing we have noticed when we have opened is the presence of advertisements on its start page. Later on, we have found out that it shows the modified search results. We have not found this very surprising because it becomes immediately clear when you take a closer look at that this search tool uses the modified Google search engine. In other words, even though users see Google search results, the developer of might have modified it to show ads or perform other activities that the original Google search engine does not do. If you do not know why you see every time you open your browser, it means that it has been, most probably, set without your consent.

If you are one of them, you should rush to erase this questionable search engine from your browsers. There are two main reasons specialists cannot say that is a reputable search engine.

Such questionable search tools like mainly collect non-personally identifiable information (e.g. search queries, IP address, links and ads clicked, etc.); however, some of them might also be interested in personal information. Also, it is known that search queries might also contain personal details even though they are considered to be non-personal. Therefore, we encourage you to remove a search tool, especially when it does not provide such important documents as the Privacy Policy and EULA (End User License Agreement) for users because it is unclear how it really acts.

We would not be surprised at all if you said that you cannot remember setting on your browsers because this questionable search engine is known to be able to change the settings of browsers without permission.

It will not be very easy to prevent untrustworthy software from entering the system. Of course, there are still two things you can do to protect your computer. First, you should install a trustworthy automatic tool on the computer. Second, we highly recommend that you stay away from software that is available for download on P2P or torrent websites because you can download serious malware from there.

It should be possible to get rid of by resetting all the browsers to their default settings. If you have never done that before, you should use the manual removal guide you can find below. Those users who find the manual method too complicated can delete automatically as well. Users who decide to employ this method have to acquire the reputable scanner first. You should do that also if you already have a tool because it is very likely that it is untrustworthy if it has allowed the browser hijacker to enter the computer.
