We believe that Searchbee.net ought to be distributed via bundled software installers because our research has shown that it does not have a browser extension that would function as a vehicle for it. These bundled installers can feature all kind of software including games. It may be featured on software distributing websites that require you to download a downloader that, in turn, downloads the software you want. The downloader can offer you to install Searchbee.net or install it by default. Truth be told, this search engine is not popular at the moment and it is likely that it will not go anywhere because we think that the installers that feature it are hosted on low-grade freeware distributing sites that do not get much web traffic.
Searchbee.net may be set as your browser’s homepage if you use Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Microsoft Internet Explorer. Also, it might change Chrome’s new tab page as well. At the time of testing it, Searchbee.net did not function properly as it was incapable of processing the search queries entered. Nevertheless, it may start working at some point, and the reason we regard it as a shady search engine is due to the fact that it might show commercial advertisements in its search results. This search engine features an “Advertise With Us” button that the bottom right of its main page. It is clear that its developers offer advertising services to anyone willing to pay for them. It offers targeted ads which means that it may collect information while you browse the web.
It is easy to see that this search engine was created to show ad-supported search results that generate ad revenue, so it was not created to fulfill your needs. This search engine does not work now but, if it did, you should not use it because all it will do is subject you to ad-supported search results. If you want to remove Searchbee.net, then please follow the instructions provided below.
