Common infection symptoms:
  • Hijacks homepage
  • Changes default search engine is an unreliable search engine that may hijack your browser and change your start page, new tab page, or even default search provider with itself. Computer security specialists believe the application could be behaving in this manner to make the user browse the Internet with the provided search tool. At the same time, the browser hijacker might gather information related to your interests and later use it to create tempting advertisements which could be injected into the search results. The bad news is there is a possibility some of these ads may originate from untrustworthy web pages. Clicking them might be potentially dangerous to the system, although it depends on the website you get redirected to and your interaction. You can learn more about the threat by reading the rest of this article, and if you choose to remove from the browser, we can suggest using the deletion instructions placed below it.

The application is not a first such browser hijacker we have tested. Unfortunately, we have encountered numerous of similar threats created by the same company called Polarity Technologies Ltd. Thus, we believe it is safe to say this developer cannot be trusted. As we came across a lot of the application’s clones, we have noticed that quite often they are distributed with unreliable browser extensions. Usually, the name of the search engine comes from the plugin’s title.

From the way is named, it looks like it could have been created for an extension called Login Email Accounts or something similar. Users might download such tools accidentally with bundled software installers, while clicking annoying pop-up ads, and so on. Another thing we noticed is that in some cases the plugins these browser hijackers travel with have exaggerated descriptions, which may convince less experienced users to add a completely useless extension onto their browser and allow it to alter homepage and other preferences.

As it was mentioned in the beginning, might gather information related to your browsing habits and interests. According to the software’s Privacy Policy statements the search engine could collect “Anonymous Information and Search Data,” for example, operating system’s type, UP address, geographic location, URLs and web pages you visit or have visited, search keywords, etc. The same document also states that this information can be shared with “third-party advertising networks.” Of course, these advertisers are not listed anywhere, making it impossible to know where the ads could come from.

What is even worse, is the fact the threat’s developers take no responsibility for their software or third-party content. Meaning there are no reassurances the provided ads will be reviewed to confirm their reliability. In other words, it is entirely possible some of the advertisements might originate from malicious web pages or sites with potentially dangerous content. For instance, the sites could offer to install more unreliable software or even harmful programs like Trojans, viruses, etc. Besides, you could end up on web pages asking to submit your personal information for fake lotteries or surveys.

All things considered, it does not look like can be trusted or is a good choice for a search engine. Therefore, if your main goal is to keep the computer safe and protected, we would recommend getting rid of this browser hijacker. One of the ways to eliminate it is to restore particular browser data that might have been modified when the application was hijacked. The whole process will be explained in the instructions given below this text, so you do not have to worry if you have no idea where to start. There is also another alternative to removing the threat manually; users who find the instructions too complicated could simply install a reliable antimalware tool and let it restore modified files automatically. To achieve this, you should set your chosen tool to do a full system scan and press the deletion button afterward.
