According to our specialists, might be a clone of browser hijackers called and It appears to be all of these search engines might be created by Russian developers and they all seem to provide no End User License Agreement statements. Plus, they have rather similar Privacy Policy documents. As you continue reading the rest of the article, we will tell you more about and the ways it could affect your browsing habits. However, if you are certain you wish to get rid of it, we can help you achieve this by suggesting the deletion instructions available at the end of the article or advising you to install a trustworthy antimalware tool that could clean your system by removing not just the browser hijacker, but also other potential threats.

As soon as the application settles in, it should replace your homepage, default search engine, or new tab page with No doubt, the browser hijacker’s goal is to make you surf the Internet with this search engine. The question is what do the software’s creators get in return? After researching the threat, we could think of no other reason to create such a tool than to generate advertising revenue. The ads might be shown to the user among the search results since the application redirects users to, or they could be placed while surfing the Internet. Each click may generate a particular amount of money. Of course, we cannot be one hundred percent sure of this as we are partly speaking from our experience with similar threats.

To find the answer we did read provided Privacy Policy document and the few statements it contains partially revealed the answer. The application’s developers do not mention any advertisements, but they claim the search engine might be collecting some user’s data that could be later shared with “advertising and content companies.” The information the browser hijacker may gather could be your visited web pages, IP address, Internet service provider, cookie information, etc.

Also, according to the Privacy Policy document the mentioned data might be used for general purposes, for example, “analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking user movements, conducting research, and providing anonymous reporting to internal and external clients.” These clients might be the same advertising companies mentioned before, and with the help of, these companies could be able to analyze user’s browsing habits and later provide him with targeted advertisements. After all, this way the user would be more tempted to click them and the software’s developers might generate more advertising revenue.

The problem is if the browser hijacker shows third-party advertising content, can it guarantee such material’s safety? Unfortunately, we cannot know this for certain either. This is why users should be are that if the threat would show third-party advertising content, there is a chance some of it could originate from harmful sources, for example, web pages distributing adware, potentially unwanted programs, other browser hijackers, or even malicious applications. Some of the sites you could visit after clicking unreliable ads may try to collect your sensitive data as well; for instance, they might offer to participate in fake surveys or lotteries.

In any case, even if the browser hijacker does not show any suspicious ads we would still advise users to replace it with a more reliable search engine. is thought to be unreliable and since it does not have any advanced tools or features we just do not think it is worth for you to take any chances with it.
