Easysearchit.com is called an untrustworthy search tool not without reason. First of all, as you already know, it often appears on browsers without permission. Second, it can provide users with search results that contain a number of advertisements. These advertisements have a form of ordinary search results in most cases, but it should not be very hard to recognize them because they redirect to websites that do not contain any useful information associated with the search query entered. It means that it will take longer for you to find the information you need on the web. On top of that, as researchers have found, the use of Easysearchit.com might result in the emergence of security-related problems too because you might be taken to an untrustworthy third-party website after clicking on any of these sponsored search results shown by it. A website is called unreliable when it contains untrustworthy software, links opening bad websites, records personal information, or performs other undesirable activities. Reliable search results appear on the search results page of Easysearchit.com too, but it is still not advisable to keep Easysearchit.com and use it as a default search tool because you will definitely click one day on any of these promotional links. Nobody knows where you will be taken after doing that.
There is one more reason why specialists definitely do not consider Easysearchit.com their favorite search tool. It has been revealed that it records personal details about users next to the so-called non-personally identifiable information:
Of course, only the provided information will be recorded, but this activity is still quite dangerous because the gathered data might end up in the hands of bad people. As for the non-personally identifiable information, various non-personally identifying details, e.g. IP address and the type of browser will be recorded too, but, since this information does not identify you personally, this activity should not cause trouble. It is impossible to stop activities Easysearchit.com performs and keep this search engine. The only thing you can do to make sure that your personal information is no longer recorded is to delete it.
Before going to remove Easysearchit.com from browsers, let’s find out how such untrustworthy search tools are distributed so that it would be easier to protect browsers from unauthorized changes in the future. As research has revealed, such search providers are often spread through bundled malicious installers. In most cases, they travel together with free applications. This explains why so many people do not notice when this computer infection enters their computers. It is, unfortunately, not always easy to prevent undesirable applications from entering computers, so users who connect to the Internet every day should have a security tool installed and enabled on their systems.
It is not worth keeping Easysearchit.com set on browsers because this search tool can only cause problems to users. Luckily, it is not that hard to get rid of it. Users who wish to delete it manually should go to reset their browsers, or they can simply set a new website as a homepage and default search engine. Easysearchit.com can be deleted automatically too. Users who are very busy or just do not feel experienced enough to eliminate this browser hijacker without help should let an automatic tool, e.g. SpyHunter do this job for them.
