Common infection symptoms:

Search.emailaccountlogin.co is a newcomer in the infamous Polarity Technologies Ltd created family of questionable featured search websites. In fact, this is just another browser hijacker like all of its predecessors, including Search.youremailnow.com and Search.searchfzlm.com. These hijackers are usually very similar to each other and sometimes even completely identical. The main goal of this search engine is obviously not to provide you with useful and customized search results to suit your best interest. As a matter of fact, this search engine is simply a way for its creators to make revenue through third-party promotion. However, this kind of promotion may be affected by questionable third parties who may as well be cyber criminals, too. Therefore, we believe that it may be risky for you to engage with any content coming from this browser hijacker, let alone its search results. We recommend that you remove Search.emailaccountlogin.co as soon as possible if you do not want to land on malicious pages or let further infections onto your system.

Obviously, there is no official site where you could download this featured search engine as a standalone installer. Instead, it is promoted on questionable file-sharing sites, such as descargar.es and filewin.com, in freeware bundles. Whenever you use a suspicious freeware or torrent page to download files, free, or cracked programs, there is a good chance that you will download a package of all kinds of useless potentially unwanted programs as well as malware infections, including browser hijackers like this one, Trojans, fake alerts, and adware programs.

The installers usually inform you about supposed browser setting changes and what additional tools you may be installing if you agree to the license agreement or leave the provided checkboxes ticked. Of course, the license agreement is the kind of document that most users tend to ignore. Another thing is that a lot of installers do not reveal the real content only if you choose the custom option, which again is usually ignored by inexperienced users as they rush to install their new free application whatsoever. This is exactly how most people let such infections on board. And this is why it may not be enough for you to delete Search.emailaccountlogin.co from your browsers alone. We suggest that you find a trustworthy malware scanner and scan your system in order to detect all possible threat sources that could be hiding on your computer.

It is also possible to download such a bundle when your system is infected with ad-supported programs or when you land on shady websites promoting all kinds of third-party ads (flashy banner and pop-up ads). You always need to be extra careful whenever you end up on an unfamiliar site because if it has malicious code running in the background or it displays disguised unsafe content, you can easily drop infections onto your system even directly. If you want to avoid being infected, you should stay away from all the suspicious pages and use only official and reputable pages for downloading updates and software unless you want to waste your time and resources with detecting and removing malware infections.

This featured search site is supposed to provide you with quick links and thumbnail links to the most popular e-mail services (Yahoo, Gmail, and Hotmail) on a fake toolbar at the top and also, below the main search field in the middle of the page. However, we have experienced some changes and it is possible that you will not even see these anymore. In any case, you can always use the bookmarking function in your browsers if you want to access preferred or frequently used pages quickly. You do not need a questionable tool or featured search engine to do that for you because these always come with a price. For example, this browser hijacker may collect information about your online activities and use this to present to you tailored ads and links on modified search results pages. Although these search results seem to be “enhanced by Google,” you cannot trust them as this hijacker can promote potentially unreliable affiliates who may redirect you to their malicious pages and scam you in all sorts of ways to get your money or your personal details. This may be the worst case scenario but it is still possible when you have such a browser hijacker present in your browsers. We believe that it is best for you to remove Search.emailaccountlogin.co as soon as you can.

If you are ready to act, let us help you with the necessary steps. This browser hijacker is known to change your home page browser setting to come up as your first page every time you launch one of the major browsers, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. You can either use the menus of your browser to change the home page settings or use our instructions below. You may feel that you are unable to protect your PC properly or efficiently enough from future attacks. Therefore, we advise you to consider installing a powerful anti-malware program, such as SpyHunter, which has proved us to be a reliable and successful defender against all known malware infections.
