Is VideosSearches the best way to search? It is one of the questions that we are trying to answer in this report. We also talk about how this application could be spread, how it might work, and how users could erase it. Before we start, you should know that this extension is classified as a potentially unwanted program. It means that the application could have undesirable qualities and that its description might be exaggerating. Therefore, it is advisable to find out more about it before deciding if you should install it. In case you have already installed it and now regret doing so, we can offer our removal instructions available below. They show how to delete VideosSearches manually. If you have any questions or need any assistance with the removal process, feel free to use our comments area available at the end of this page.
We should start with the application’s distribution. Potentially unwanted programs like VideosSearches, for example, SearchSeries or PDFConverterSearchHQ, are often available on their official websites and Chrome Web Store page. However, such extensions can also be spread through pop-ups, advertisements, and various file-sharing websites. Therefore, we advise being careful when searching for new programs. Make sure you research new tools thoughtfully before deciding if they are worth your attention. The key things that should be checked out are the software’s developers and expert reviews. We also recommend choosing legitimate websites to download your selected applications safely. Another wise thing to do would be acquiring a reliable antimalware tool that could protect your system from various malicious applications and keep it clean and warn you about potentially unwanted programs and similar tools.
According to VideosSearches description, the application may change your default search engine to provide you with the “best way to search.” Our researchers say that the potentially unwanted program ought to change a user’s default search engine with a search website called feed.videos-searches.com. What is so special about it? Truth be told, we did not notice anything as it looks like numerous other search websites provided by similar potentially unwanted programs. Moreover, researchers say that the extension’s search website may redirect users to a modified version of the Yahoo search engine. It might mean that the tool might be unable to gather and display search results itself. We believe it is not something one would hope from an application that provides the best way to search. Also, users ought to know that while they are using VideosSearches, it might be gathering data from their browsing history. In other words, the potentially unwanted program might be able to see what kind of websites you visit, what you search for on the Internet, and so on.
Data available on the browsing history is often used to determine what users like and what could be interesting to them. Such information is usually used in creating targeted advertisements. We do not say that VideosSearches will necessarily use it for these purposes, but there is a chance that it could. If it bothers you or you are not happy with the way it works, you could erase VideosSearches from your browser. Our researchers say that users who want to get rid of it manually could erase it after accessing their browsers’ extensions menus. The task is not particularly difficult, but we have prepared a step-by-step deletion guide that you can find below this paragraph if you need any help.
Users can also erase VideosSearches with their chosen antimalware tools. All you have to do is ensure that you pick a legitimate antimalware tool. Once it is installed, you should let it perform a full system scan. At the end of the scan, your security tool should show you a list of identified items it should also let you erase all detections at the same time by pressing its displayed removal button.
