Safepage.easyfiletool.com is a search engine that is a constituent part of the EasyFile application. In other words, the search engine comes bundled with the mentioned app, and it should be possible to avoid installing it on your browser, but practice shows that users often fail to check all the steps in the installation wizard. Safepage.easyfiletool.com is not extremely dangerous, but it may showcase a few unwanted features, so it would be for the best to remove it from your browser and your computer. As far as the application it comes with is concerned, perhaps you should think twice before utilizing it as well.
The reason we cannot say that Safepage.easyfiletool.com is a malicious computer infection is because this search engine does not enter target systems surreptitiously. The same could be said about many other unfamiliar and unwanted applications. The point is that users often download and install them accidentally without even realizing it.
It would be surprising if the EasyFile application were not available for download from file-sharing websites. In fact, we believe that it is the most common distribution method utilized by freeware applications. Thus, Safepage.easyfiletool.com might have also entered your computer together with some freeware app that you have recently downloaded from some file hosting website. If that is really the case, then it is very likely that this search engine is not the only unwanted application installed on your computer. To find out what unwanted programs are currently running on your system, you should run a full PC scan with the SpyHunter free scanner.
Needless to say, there is yet another distribution method that works just fine for EasyFile. User can also download this application from the official homepage that is located at easyfiletool.com. During the installation, the program also adds the Search App by EasyFileTool to the Google Chrome browser, and this extension changes your default homepage and search engine to Safepage.easyfiletool.com. Luckily, the program affects only the Google Chrome browser, and the other major browsers remain unaffected.
According to the official website, the main application is compatible with Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, and Windows XP operating systems. It says that the application offers a free FTP solution by providing “easy file management.” Based on what we have found at the official homepage, with this application you should be able to: “upload and download of images, document, movie and music files, manage file transfers, automate file transfer processes, backup and synchronize local and remote files.”
Technically, the program’s installation is similar to that of the DealWifi application. Thus, we can tell that Safepage.easyfiletool.com and its main program come from a series of applications that target a specific service area. Now, whether that area is really covered by what EasyFileTool can offer or not, that is another question. What we are concerned about here is the search engine that might have mounted your browser without your permission. Once again, this search provider may not be your worst nightmare, but you should not rule out the possibility that it could be exploited by cyber criminals.
Why is it dangerous to keep third-party apps on your computer? For starters, if you did not want to have an application on your system, it is obvious that you have to remove it. Second, some of the freeware programs might be used by adware creators to generate financial profit. For instance, some of the search results provided by Safepage.easyfiletool.com could be embedded there on purpose for commercial purposes, and if you click that, you get redirected to a third-party website. As you do that, the developers of Safepage.easyfiletool.com get paid via the pay-per-click system, and you get nothing, but a piece of questionable content in return.
Sometimes, the website you get redirected to might be reliable, but you should not take your chances. It is also possible to get infected with malware in the case of malicious exploitation, so you definitely should not overlook this issue.
