- Hijacks homepage
- Changes default search engine
If you find that your regular home page has changed upon launching your browser, it is possible that Search.dailybibleverses.co has taken its place and you do not even recall installing it. This new search website is not that new at all; in fact, it comes from a constantly growing family of browser hijackers created by the not so reliable Polarity Technologies Ltd. This family consists of dozens of very similar as well as identical browser hijackers, such as Search.pe-cmf.com and Search.hdailysocialweb.com to name a few. This particular version offers bible verses and bible study links from its fake toolbar but we do not advise you to use it or keep it at all. If you want to load such pages with the click of a button, you should simply bookmark them without using any questionable browser extension. As a matter of fact, this browser hijacker can introduce you to unreliable search results, which can pose a threat to your system security. Thus, we advise you to remove Search.dailybibleverses.co as soon as possible unless you would like to experience further malware invasions or being scammed on fake websites run by cyber crooks.
This browser hijacker is available for direct installation in the Chrome web store (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/daily-bible-verses/neoihbmgijigopmdimphcabkdipkbhkj) but the statistics there show that only over 3,100 people have used this channel to install it. And, if we add that "in the past 8 months," it would put the picture in a new perspective; obviously, not a popular browser extension among users. But what would you expect from an unreliable tool? There has to be another way for its creators to spread this hijacker if they want to make money out of promoting affiliates. They do have an alternative, and it is called bundling. If you do not feel the need for deleting Search.dailybibleverses.co yet, let us tell you more about bundles.
Free software bundles can be tricky things because they may be packed with several threats like potentially unwanted applications and malware programs (adware apps, browser hijackers, Trojans, fake alerts, and more). You can easily download one when you use questionable file-sharing websites like filewon.com, filewin.com, and malavida.es for downloading free software. You need to be careful when you run a web search looking for free or cracked files to download because the results may contain a number of unreliable or downright malicious links even if you use one of the most popular and reputable search engines, such as Google. If you are not familiar with the range of fake file-sharing websites, you need to be prepared to land on one of them after such a search. We advise you to always use official and reputable vendor pages to download software and updates as well. If you want to use a secure computer, we suggest that you perform a full system scan with a reliable malware scanner right after you delete Search.dailybibleverses.co from your browsers.
As we have already mentioned, this new search website offers you easy access to bible-related third-party websites, such as biblegateway.com and bible.com/bible/1/jhn.1.kjv. Although these pages may be totally legitimate and safe to visit, when you do so through this questionable page, you could always be in for a surprise. This browser hijacker may be able to inject its own third-party ads into any content it redirects to and these ads may not always be trustworthy. It also not advisable to visit the local weather widget page or the news page because these are filled with questionable third-party ads again. And, the same can be told about the search engine itself, which redirects your searches through its own web server to search.yahoo.com. You may feel all safe landing on a Yahoo search results page but let us tell you that coming from this hijacker means that those results could be hacked and contain unsafe third-party ads and sponsored links. If you do not want to risk clicking on harmful content, you should not hesitate to act and remove Search.dailybibleverses.co from your computer right away.
Since this browser hijacker may only change your home pages, it may be enough for you to restore those settings. If you want to do this manually, you can apply our instructions below. Of course, you cannot forget about the rest of the possible threats that could be hiding on your system. Leaving even potentially harmful programs on board would be a big mistake that would prove you wrong before long. Therefore, we recommend that you eliminate all possible infections by using a reliable anti-malware program like SpyHunter. Nothing can really beat automated security software when it comes to protecting your PC.
