Search.hdailysocialweb.com may look like a new useful tools with features that may come in handy in your browsers; however, in reality, it is yet another attempt from Polarity Technologies Ltd to make some easy money through questionable third-party advertising. This search page may appear as your home page in your main browsers (Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer) and offers you quick links on its fake toolbar to popular social networking pages as well as the usual search engine, of course. You should know that these features are totally redundant and potentially risky to use anyway. This is indeed an identical browser hijacker from this endlessly growing family that has already introduced to the world dozens of clones, such as Search.careerjobsearch.co, Search.htextfrompc.co, and Search.searchvidpop.com. This hijacker can show you altered search results that may pose a threat to your system security. This is definitely one of the main reasons why we recommend that you remove Search.hdailysocialweb.com from your browsers right now, but there are more. Please go on with our article to see how this malware infection may have crawled onto your system and how you can actually avoid similar threats.
What you may not know is that it is quite easy to get infected with a browser hijacker. Sometimes, for example, you can directly install such an infection by clicking on the wrong link or advertisement while browsing the web or running a web search with the wrong search engine. In this case, you may not even be informed about the browser setting changes. However, you should also know that most of the time you are actually told about these changes but you may simply overlook these notifications. How is this possible? Well, schemers are a tricky kind. They create misleading installers for bundled threats that can contain several potentially unwanted programs and malware infections as well, such as browser hijackers, fake alerts, adware programs, ransomware programs, and more. If you do not install a standalone file but a bundle, you should always be very attentive to the installation screens not to let any infections or unwanted tools onto your system. It is possible that you will only be informed about the real content if you select the custom option instead of the quick installation.
It is also of importance where or how you download this bundle. Obviously, there are legitimate ones that may carry totally reliable tools and ad-supported programs to help developers keep their main product free to the public. Such software packages can normally be downloaded from official or vendors' sites. However, when you download free programs off of shady freeware or torrent pages, it is quite likely that you will drop a dirty bundle filled with malicious threats. The same can happen when you click on unsafe third-party ads and links while surfing the web. Such content can be presented to you by malware programs on your system or by suspicious websites. But no matter how this browser hijacker may have entered your system, it is important that you run a trustworthy malware scanner to find all possible threat sources after you delete Search.hdailysocialweb.com.
The first thing you should understand about the redundancy of this search page is that you can always use the reliable built-in bookmarking function of your browsers whenever you want to have a bar with the quick links of your favorite and frequently used pages. You do not need any questionable tool for that because, for example, this browser hijacker might be able to inject its own third-party promotions into any site it offers for you to visit. This hijacker provides you with links to popular social networking sites on its fake toolbar apart from the usual tools (search tool, news, and local weather widget links). Below the main search field in the middle of the page, you can also find a panel of thumbnail links that also take you to similar pages as well as leading to Amazon and Gmail among others. The main issue here is obviously the search engine that forwards your keywords to its own server and then, to Yahoo. This is how it is possible that it can modify the search results and inject its potentially unreliable third-party ads and sponsored links into authentic Yahoo results. Clicking on these thus becomes quite risky because you could easily drop further infections or end up on malicious pages and being scammed by cyber criminals, too. This is why we think that it is important that you act now and remove Search.hdailysocialweb.com from your PC.
We have included our guide that you can find right after this article. If you follow these steps, you should be able to eliminate this browser hijacker quite easily since you only need to restore the home page settings of the infected browsers. But you cannot forget about the rest of the possible threats since using a computer that may be infected with several malicious or potentially unwanted program can lead to further system security issues or even losing your files, your personal information, or more. Thus, it may be a good idea for you to install a reliable malware removal application like SpyHunter. This automated security software can take care of all your possible security issues.
