Even though Searchgle.com does not seem to be a bad search engine at all, you will immediately notice advertisements on its main page. They might promote software, items, games, and other services. Do not click on any of those ads even though you find them appealing because it is impossible to say in advance where you will be taken to after doing that. According to security specialists, users might even be taken to websites promoting untrustworthy software or having bad external links. Unfortunately, search results provided by Searchgle.com cannot be fully trusted either because there might be ads inserted among ordinary search results too. They do not differ from these trustworthy search results, but they might also take users to untrustworthy third-party websites if people click on them. You cannot remove those ads from the start page of Searchgle.com and the search results page it opens after you enter a search query, but you can remove Searchgle.com from all your browsers to make sure that you no longer see these ads, and we suggest doing that ASAP.
We cannot say much about the distribution of Searchgle.com because it is not that easy to make a conclusion about its dissemination when it is not popular yet. Of course, there is no doubt that it enters computers without permission. According to researchers at pcthreat.com, the most likely scenario is that it travels bundled with other applications. People who tend to download software from various third-party websites and do not have a security tool installed on their computers infect their systems the most frequently. If you recognize yourself, we are not surprised at all that the Searchgle.com browser hijacker has managed to enter your PC.
There are two ways to remove Searchgle.com from your computer: a) you can reset your browsers to their default settings or b) you can scan your PC with an automatic malware remover. If you have never tried erasing a browser hijacker before, we suggest employing the second method. A reliable application, such as SpyHunter, will delete all other threats that might be hiding on your system and working in the background as well.
