As for learning more about it, we invite you to read the rest of this article.

It is possible users could come across while surfing the Internet. Quite often similar search engines travel with various extensions and toolbars, but our researchers say the application might be still new and so it might not be spread widely. Thus, the only thing we can advise to avoid software alike so far is to avoid unreliable file-sharing web pages and be extra cautious during the installation process. Not to mention, every tool you except should be researched first to make sure it is trustworthy enough. Following these tips may help you stay away from browser hijackers, potentially unwanted programs, adware, or even more dangerous threats too.

One of the first thing that we noticed about is it does not provide any links to its Privacy Policy and End User License Agreement documents. Some users imagine them as long papers that are not worth their time. Nonetheless, cybersecurity specialists keep encouraging users to review them as often as possible. Just a few invested minutes could let you learn what information the chosen tool might gather about you and how its developer is going to protect and use it. Also, reading the mentioned documents could let you learn more about the application’s working manner, for example, if it can update itself or install other software on your computer. That is just a small part of useful information that you could find by reading the software’s Privacy Policy and End User License Agreement documents. Thus, provided you do not want to install unreliable tools that could violate your privacy or put your system in danger, we advise reviewing these papers carefully.

Another thing that raised our suspicion was a warning from Google Chrome. It showed up when we were testing on this browser. On the left side of the search engine’s URL address, the browser showed an alert saying “Not secure.” Clicking it displayed a small message saying “Your connection to this site is not secure.” It also advised not to enter any sensitive information while browsing it. According to Google’s support, the warning advises it because “Someone might be able to see the information you send or get through this site.” Given there are no Privacy Policy or End User License Agreement document, we do not know what information the website could gather, which is why it is entirely possible entering sensitive data might be unsafe. If you do not like the fact, you would have to be extra cautious while browsing, we recommend replacing with a more reputable search engine.

Probably, the easiest way to remove from the browser is to reset it, although keep in mind this way you could lose your bookmarks, so if you do not want this to happen, it is best to back them up. Since the application might be compatible with Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome, we provide instructions on how to reset all of them separately just below this paragraph.
