- Hijacks homepage
- Changes default search engine
If you think that you have scored big by swapping your previous browser for Internet Quick Access, then you have made the wrong decision. You should consider removing it since its home page called Search.internetquickaccess.com is known to promote websites of unverified legitimacy. Hence, if you use it while browsing online, then you might unintentionally download and install malicious software or even worse — your computer will become infected secretly. In addition to all of this, this search engine is configured to gather information about you, so that its developers could use it for web monetization purposes. So, in short, this search engine and its browser do not enhance your browsing experience but hinder it with unasked-for content. Please read this whole article if you have Internet Quick Access installed on your system. We are positive that you will find the information we have gathered intriguing.
First of all, we have to go over this search engine’s background. So we have found that Search.internetquickaccess.com is an Internet Quick Access exclusive since it does not seem to come with other browsers and it is not distributed separately by offering it when installing software bundles or as a browser hijacker. Its “host” browser has its distribution website at Internetquickaccess.com where users can get it in a standalone installer. However, it’s developers use another, more efficient method of distribution. We have found that this browser is bundled with other software of similar unreliability and put up for download on shady freeware hosting sites for the general public to download.
If you are wondering who created this browser, then we have found the answer for you. Imali Media Ltd is the name of the company responsible for developing Internet Quick Access and Search.internetquickaccess.com. This company specializes in developing unreliable software and search engines. Some of its older releases include Search.newtabtvsearch.com, Safebrowsesearch.com, and Search.wondrousmoviessearch.com. Feel free to read more about them on our website.
Internet Quick Access is based on the Chromium engine developed by Google Inc. This engine is quite a popular and often the only choice for sketchy software developers to develope and release a fully-functional web browser. And, on that note, we would like to mention a few browsers that take advantage of the Chromium and have been classified as potentially unwanted programs. So Wind Browser, Fusion Browser, TheBrowser, and Qword Browser are all Chromium-based, they work, but are also considered unreliable and you should avoid them.
The reason we advocate for Internet Quick Access’s deletion is that its search engine (Search.internetquickaccess.com) is apt to promote unreliable websites and their malicious content. Take note that all of its searches along with its commands to display ads are redirected to Yahoo.com. Now, it does not pose an immediate threat, but the possibility of this is quite real. In the worst case scenario, your system can become infected with Trojans, ransomware, keyloggers, spyware, and other malicious software. All you have to do is click a fake update offer or an attractive advertisement.
In conclusion, Search.internetquickaccess.com is an unreliable search engine that comes as part of an also unreliable web browser. Both of them were created by a shady developer that specializes in web monetization. The biggest threat you are bound to face while using this search engine is the possibility of getting your computer infected with malware. Therefore, you should remove it as soon as possible.
