- Hijacks homepage
Search-armor.com is a search engine you should not use even though you see it set on your all browsers and it returns search results like reliable search tools. One of the main reasons we do not recommend using Search-armor.com is the fact that it is a part of a browser hijacker infection. It comes as a component in this infection and is set on all the browsers without a user’s permission. As we have told you, it is one of the reasons Search-armor.com is considered an unreliable search tool, but it is definitely not the only one. Specialists working at pcthreat.com have also noticed that the Search-armor.com browser hijacker can perform undesirable activities. For example, it has been found that it collects technical and other types of information to find out more about users’ interests, activities, and preferences. On top of that, you will not avoid redirections to untrustworthy third-party websites. We will tell you more about Search-armor.com and we hope that the information we provide in this article will convince you to remove Search-armor.com and then set a more reliable search engine.
First of all, let’s talk about these redirections to third-party websites. Search-armor.com should not redirect you to untrustworthy websites if you do not use it as a tool for searching the web because, as has been noticed, these redirections only happen if users click on sponsored search results that are blended with reliable ones on the same page. It is impossible to say which of the search results provided by Search-armor.com can be trusted and which cannot because they do not differ much from each other. This also means that you will be sure that you have stopped all those redirections to untrustworthy websites only if you fully erase Search-armor.com from your browsers. The sooner you stop those redirections to third-party websites, the better because it is impossible to know where you will be taken the next time.
Let’s talk about the distribution of questionable search engines like Search-armor.com as well. It is evident that they set themselves on browsers without permission in most cases, but users cannot understand how they can do that. Our research has shown that Search-armor.com usually changes the settings of all the browsers when users click on a malicious advertisement that appears on their screens. If you remember clicking on some kind of advertisement recently too, it is very likely that there is an adware installed on your computer. Remove it together with the Search-armor.com browser hijacker if you do not want to allow another malicious application to enter your computer again. We suggest that you do not download software from questionable third-party websites too because it is known that browser hijackers might travel in software bundles with other applications as well. People download these bundles from third-party websites mainly.
If you wish to change the settings of your all browsers, you have to remove Search-armor.com first and only then set another homepage and the New Tab URL. You can quickly get rid of this search tool by resetting your browsers to their default settings, or you can scan your computer with an automatic malware remover, such as SpyHunter, if you wish to erase the browser hijacker and other existing threats from your computer all at once. If you wish to try the scanner we recommended first, download its free diagnostic version from pcthreat.com by clicking once on the Download button. It will list all the threats it finds on your computer.
