  • Changes default search engine is another questionable search engine that might travel as a part of a browser hijacker infection and thus replace homepages and search engines on browsers. Users do not hurry to remove this search engine because it looks like an ordinary search tool at first glance. Even though it might seem to be quite trustworthy, it has definitely lost its credibility due to the fact that it is promoted by a browser hijacker and uses invasive techniques to get onto computers. Therefore, you should immediately go for the deletion of if you ever notice it in the place of your homepage, search engine, or even the New Tab page. Specialists have noticed that users who encounter an unreliable search engine for the first time usually find it rather difficult to delete it and then set a more trustworthy search tool, so specialists working at have decided to come to the rescue. Before we explain to you how to delete, we will tell you more about the search tool itself. We hope this information will help to convince you to take action.

Even though looks like a trustworthy search engine, i.e. it has a search box and provides a list of top searches for users to help them save time, you should not keep it set on your browsers. There are two reasons researchers at suggest getting rid of it. First of all, it is evident that it does not work properly because you will not see any search results no matter what you enter into the search box. All you will see is a message offering to try to enter different/more general/popular keywords and make sure all the entered words are written correctly. In other words, is completely useless despite the fact that it is made to look like an ordinary search engine.

There is, of course, another serious reason we suggest getting rid of Research conducted by our specialists has shown that this search tool is also going to track users. It says that it collects non-personally identifiable information in its Privacy Policy too. Researchers have found that gathers the following details: IP address, browser type, date & time, search queries, and other information about users’ activities. Even though it is said that this information will only be used to analyze website traffic and improve the performance of the search service, we still do not recommend providing this information for the developer of because it will send it to third parties too, which means that it might even end up in the hands of cyber criminals.

It has been found that there are many other questionable search engines hosted on the same server, e.g.,, and, so it is very likely that the developer has released a bunch of other unreliable search tools. In most cases, these questionable search engines might be set on browsers without permission, for example, you might notice that your browsers’ settings have been altered after the installation of some kind of free application from a third-party website. Therefore, you should take measures to protect your computer from harm. What you can do is to install a reputable security tool on your computer. Also, you should be careful with free software, especially if you have downloaded it from a third-party website. It is a must to install new applications attentively and select the Advanced installation option to see exactly what programs are going to be installed on the system instead of leaving the Default option.
