Whether or not Searchall.network was installed without permission, it was installed somehow. Unless, of course, you were simply redirected to it via a different search engine or another website. If that is the case, it is unlikely that you need to worry about anything at all. You might need to clear the browsing data to get rid of tracking cookies, and that is included in the manual removal guide below. If the search tool is fully embedded into your browser – whether via homepage, default search provider, or the new tab – you need to think about a few things. First of all, did it come alone? The chances are that the search tool came bundled along with an application or extension. If that is the case, you want to make sure that you scan your operating system. Of course, you could assess the programs installed yourself, but because malware can slither in and hide, we really recommend employing a trusted malware scanner. In the best scenario, you will have wasted a few minutes spent scanning the system. In the worst case scenario, you will learn about the existence of threats that require removal. Although that is the worst case scenario, you do not want to ignore this potential situation, do you?
So, what are you going to do? Will you delete Searchall.network along with apps, programs, or add-ons that might have been bundled with it? If that is your decision, you can follow the instructions below. They show how to reset the most popular web browsers and clear browsing data on them to ensure that no leftovers persist. Another option is to use anti-malware software. It can be extremely helpful if the search engine is bundled with programs or malware that you do not know how to delete.
