If you are using Searchinworld.biz, you could notice unusual ads on top of the results that might be not only irrelevant to your search keywords, but also dangerous for a computer. That is because the search engine is known to be a browser hijacker, which uses google.com for results. However, they cannot be trusted, since Searchinworld.biz injects result with unreliable third-party ads. For instance, it could promote unreliable software such as adware or potentially unwanted programs (PUP). Also, the links might be from malicious websites, so it is possible to infect your system while interacting with content on such site. Moreover, it is not very likely that you downloaded such this hijacker knowingly. Therefore, we would advise you to delete it quickly, as it is better to get rid of it now than wait till your computer gets damaged.
According to our researchers, this browser hijacker should be spread through bundled installers, which could be found on various questionable file-sharing websites. Meaning, the installer might have had additional software such as Searchinworld.biz, PUPs, etc. and you accepted it. Probably, you did not review what was written on the installation wizard’s steps, but there should have been an opportunity to untick the suggestions if you do not approve. It is better to look for more information about file-sharing websites or programs that you want to download as it might help you to stay away from bundled installers and doubtful software.
As for now the search engine is compatible only with Google Chrome. If you are familiar with productforums.google.com website, you know that there is Google Chrome Help Forum where users share their experience with the browser and programs created for it. We noticed that some users complained and asked how to remove Searchinworld.biz in the mentioned forum. Awful reviews from users indicate that there is something wrong with the application. Users complain that the search engine is intrusive and annoying because of constant ads. However, there is a bigger problem with this browser hijacker. When you look for something on Searchinworld.biz, you will be provided with the modified search results, which will have doubtful ads. The browser hijacker takes these advertisements from third-parties that it does not review, so it means that some of the ads could be from harmful websites. As a result, your computer could catch malware such as Trojans, viruses, worms, etc. Some ads could promote PUPs, adware applications or other suspicious software that might display even more ads and annoying pop-ups.
The browser hijacker must be removed if you want to surf the Internet safely or get back to your previous settings, because as long as it is installed, it will not allow you to open other search engines. Keep it in mind that if you downloaded suspicious software or clicked on any ads while the browser hijacker was installed, you should do a full system scan because there might be other unwanted applications or infections on your computer. Deleting it should not take much time since it works only on Google Chrome, you will need to locate a few particular browser’s files and remove them. The task should not be hard even for inexperienced users, as all you have to do is follow our instructions step by step, but if you require more help, do not hesitate to contact us via social media (Facebook, YouTube, Google+, Twitter).
