First, it does not seem to be a very trustworthy search tool because users make complaints that it has replaced their homepages, default search engines, and even modified New Tab pages without their permission. Second, even though it uses a service of Yahoo!, which is a reputable search provider, it is very likely that its search results will be covered with the modified search results and various promotional links promoting third-party websites.

On the basis of our researchers’ previous experience with search tools belonging to the same family, e.g. and, advertisements and links leading to third-party web pages might be placed there too. Since they are hardly noticeable and often do not differ from trustworthy search results, many users click on them and end up on third-party websites that do not contain any information associated with the search query. This, of course, means that users cannot effectively search for the information on the web, and they might need more time to find the relevant information. Actually, it is not the only problem associated with these third-party links and advertisements. Specialists at do not recommend clicking on them because they might take users to untrustworthy websites. Since users might click on these ads and links accidentally, specialists suggest removing fully to make sure that the commercial content is no longer provided.

Instead, it is often categorized as a browser hijacker by specialists because users are not always informed that it is going to change all their settings if they install particular software.
