Piesearch.com is a strange search provider that redirects to google.com as soon as you enter your keywords. This should be the first sign that this program is unreliable and deserves removal.

Although, Piesearch.com uses Google as a search provider, you have to remove this browser hijacker as soon as possible. Yes, we identify Piesearch.com as a browser hijacker because it could enter your operating system and take over the browsers without your permission. If that happens, you will find that your homepage and default search provider were modified without permission. If that does not send you a signal that this search tool is unreliable and deserves removal, we are not sure that anything will. Of course, if you are reading this report, you must have a suspicion that Piesearch.com is unreliable.
One more reason to delete Piesearch.com from your browsers is the suspicious advertising. This hijacker can display banner ads on its home page, and interacting with these ads could be very dangerous. Although the links to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Skype, and Instagram are authentic, the links hidden behind attractive, flashy ads could route you to malicious websites. As you might know, you cannot remove these irritating ads, but you can ignore them. Of course, instead of ignoring the suspicious ads or the fact that they are introduced by a very suspicious search tool, it is best to remove Piesearch.com.
