Zebrouss.com is known to use malicious software installers that modify the browser settings and change the homepage address to Search.zebrouss.com. Note that depending on the version of the browser hijacker and the installer it comes bundled with, it might come with a dedicated browser extension or without it. Whatever the case may be, it seems that this hijacker is not too malicious and can be easily disposed of. Now, you should delete because of several obvious reasons. First of all, Zebrouss.com is automatically set as your browser’s homepage without asking for your permission. And, second of all, it is bound to present unreliable search results that can jeopardize your computer’s security. Lastly, it can collect information about its users for marketing purposes. So all in all, Zebrouss.com is not that good of a search engine.
Another reason not to use this search engine is because it redirects all of its searches to Yahoo.com, so it does not offer that Yahoo.com cannot provide. Of course, Zebrouss.com can offer you advertisements that come from various third parties, but its developers take no responsibility if something bad were to happen to your system as a result of using Zebrouss.com as indicated in its terms and conditions section which states that "we do not warrant or guarantee, and you may not hold us, nor our subsidiaries, officers, affiliates and its licensors, responsible or liable for, any lack of, accuracy, correctness, completeness, continuity, reliability, timeliness, error-free, malware-free and security of Zebrouss, its content or any part thereof."
So you should remove Zebrouss.com from your browser because it does not offer you a reliable service. If anything, this hijacker will only subject you to commercial ads of unknown origin, so it is recommended that you eradicate this hijacker as soon as possible. And, to prevent similar infections from compromising your computer’s security in the future, you should get an antimalware that offers real-time protection.
