  • Changes default search engine is, without a doubt, not the most trustworthy search tool, so if you ever discover it on your browsers, you should do all it takes to remove it from them. It is not as dangerous as malicious software, but you should still be careful with it because enormous problems might arise out of using as a default search provider. In the worst-case scenario, you might allow untrustworthy software to enter your computer. Additionally, problems linked to your online privacy might arise too because this search provider, most likely, collects information about users like similar search tools. Generally speaking, we cannot confirm that the search tool you have found set on your browsers is trustworthy, so, in the opinion of researchers at, the only effective solution to the problem is the immediate removal. You are the one who can decide whether or not to keep this search tool set, but we highly recommend reading this article till the end before making the final decision. It is very likely that you will change the opinion about this search tool after reading what our specialists have to say about it.

We do not say that is extremely harmful, but we would lie if we said that it can be trusted either. What makes it a dubious search provider is the fact that it is usually set on users’ browsers without direct permission. Also, even though it did not show any modified search results at the time of research, we cannot promise that it will not provide you with them in the future. The main problem associated with these search results is that they might redirect users to third-party pages with undesirable software on them. Unfortunately, it is not so easy to recognize those untrustworthy search results, so even if they are ever really displayed to you, it is very likely that you will not even notice them. As has been mentioned, you might be redirected to a page with untrustworthy software one day if you click on those modified search results fearlessly. Furthermore, there is one more thing our specialists have noticed. According to them, might collect information about users. Unfortunately, it is unclear what details it can record because its Privacy Policy and other important documents like EULA do not exist. It is also a feature of an untrustworthy search tool because legitimate search providers do not keep these documents away from users.

There is also one more reason cannot be called a trustworthy search provider. Research has shown that it might be spread bundled. In other words, not all the users set this search tool on their browsers voluntarily. It is, of course, nothing new because a bunch of untrustworthy search providers are set on users’ browsers after they install the entire software bundle on their computers. Users living in India and the United Kingdom have the highest chance of discovering on their web browsers, but it does not mean that you cannot encounter it too even if you live somewhere else. In most cases, users discover a new search tool on their browsers when they act quite carelessly, e.g. download and install new software without paying much attention to the installation procedure. Also, it has been noticed that users who discover their browsers’ settings altered do not usually have a security application installed on their systems.

Resetting web browsers to default settings should be enough to make gone; however, if it appears again after launching these browsers again, it would be smart to check all browsers’ shortcuts. They could have been modified too. In such a case, you will need to fix them first and only then go to remove the undesirable search tool, i.e., reset browsers to default settings. If you have not done that in your life, we highly recommend using our manual removal guide. If you feel that the manual method is not for you, you can always clear your web browsers automatically. In other words, you can remove a dubious search tool from your browsers by scanning the system with an automated antimalware tool as well. Make sure you use a 100% trustworthy scanner because the tool only pretending to be trustworthy will cause more trouble.
