Browserhome.net usually affects web browsers on smartphones, but you might discover it set as your default search tool on Internet Explorer/Mozilla Firefox/Google Chrome installed on your PC as well. This search tool cannot be called a legitimate search provider, so delete it from all affected browsers as soon as possible. If you do nothing about its presence, you will be forced to use Browserhome.net as a default search provider, which might be quite a risky activity since this dubious search tool might display untrustworthy third-party links, as recent research has shown. Also, it will collect information about you. You will find more information about it provided in the following paragraphs of this article. If you have not decided yet what to do with this dubious search provider, we are sure the provided information will help you to arrive at a final decision.

We would lie if we said that Browserhome.net is as harmful as malicious software; however, it cannot be called a trustworthy search provider either. There are several reasons why it has fallen into this category. First, it cannot be considered a trustworthy search provider because it tends to appear on users’ web browsers out of the blue. Second, malware researchers at pcthreat.com have quickly realized that this search tool might show third-party links. It does not really surprise us because all users’ searches are redirected to gobrowser.mobi from Browserhome.net, and, most probably, these links are placed next to ordinary search results along the way. If you can recognize them, ignore them all because clicking on any of these third-party links might have undesirable outcomes. For example, you might be exposed to potential threats right away. Unfortunately, it is not that easy to recognize these untrustworthy links, so we are sure you will sooner or later click on them. As has been mentioned, it might be quite dangerous to do that. You should also be aware of the fact that this search tool might gather information about you and your activities. If we blindly believe the information available in its Privacy Policy document, it should only collect the so-called non-personally identifiable information consisting of cookies information, log file information, location data, device identifies, and web beacons information. Yes, it promises not to record any personally-identifiable information, so it should not violate your privacy. In our opinion, you should not allow Browserhome.net to collect non-personally identifiable details automatically as well because it is unclear why it needs them.

Browserhome.net is one more product of AirFind. It is not the first time our specialists analyze its products, so they already know what the main reasons users encounter them are. According to them, this search tool is usually set on users’ web browsers because they install carelessly a software bundle and agree that their browsers’ settings would be altered. Needless to say, they do not know about that in most cases. You should remove it if you have set it as your default search tool voluntarily as well because it will not improve your web searching experience in any way. The next paragraph contains everything you need to know about the removal of this suspicious search tool, so if you decide not to keep it, read the information provided carefully and then immediately take action to get rid of it.

If Browserhome.net has already affected your browsers on your PC, you should go to reset them all to default settings. As for your smartphone, you should delete those affected browsers and install them on your device again one by one – it is the easiest method to make the undesirable URL gone. Unauthorized changes might be applied to your browsers once again if you continue being careless, so if you are not going to change your web browsing behavior or stop downloading software from the web, at least install a reputable security tool. Keep in mind that security tools for smartphones are already available too.
