- Hijacks homepage
- Changes default search engine
A browser hijacker called SearchesSpace.com might slither in and take over your web browser quite seamlessly. Although it is unlikely to corrupt the homepage on your Firefox, Chrome, or Internet Explorer browser illegally, it might hide in bundled installers. Also, it could be attached to extensions and applications, and you might have no way of separating them from the hijacker. Whether you are tricked or pushed into accepting the homepage changes, or you do not notice this search tool at all, we strongly advise deleting it from your browser. Although it might look completely harmless at first sight, there is more than meets the eye. According to our research, this hijacker can redirect you, expose you to advertisements, and even record personally identifiable information. All things considered, this search tool is not a beneficial or reliable search assistant, and so you should get rid of it. This report discusses the activity, as well as the removal of SearchesSpace.com. If you want to learn about this, keep reading.
SearchesSpace.com redirects all search queries. The problem is that it redirects to google.com, and most users are likely to trust this search engine. Well, there is no reason not to trust it; however, keep in mind that when a hijacker redirects you to it, the results shown to you can be modified, and sponsored links can be included. Are you sure that interacting with third-party advertisements is safe? Of course, it is not always safe, and so you have to be careful. The fact that you are redirected alone is a good enough reason to delete SearchesSpace.com, and when you consider it showing potentially unreliable sponsored links, you should have no further hesitation regarding its removal. After all, it does not really offer any services. If you are happy using Google Search, you can set it as your homepage, but you should be careful about trusting the results shown via it when a hijacker is involved. Other than questionable search services, the hijacker is completely useless, and so you should not keep it around.
