Holasearch.com Removal Guide

Do you know what Holasearch.com is?

Once your browsing sessions are disturbed by unauthorized redirecting to Holasearch.com, you need to scan your PC with a reliable spyware scanner and delete the malicious browser hijacker which has been infiltrated by cyber criminals. Do you think that the site presented as a search engine is completely safe to use? This illusion may arise once you notice such familiar search modules as Search, Images, Videos, Mail, News, Maps and Calendar. The menu looks identical to the one of Google search engine, and the provided services route you to Gmail, Google Maps and other reliable tools. Despite this, have no doubt that the site has not been developed by Google and that you need to delete Holasearch.com right away.

Even though at first the search engine looks authentic, it cannot provide you reliable services. First of all, all of the search results presented by the engine are filtered, meaning that the first page and top results are dedicated to sponsored sites. This allows us to state that the application is powered through a pay-per-click system. The second factor which may raise suspicion is the advertisement presented under the search bar. Whether the displayed ads intrigue you or not, you should never click on them because this is how third party cookies could be dropped on your browsers. This suspicious activity is disclosed within the Terms of Use Agreement found at the bottom of Holasearch.com:

Hola Toolbar does not have any obligation to test Third Party Software and is not responsible for the appropriateness, completeness, stability or legality of any Third Party Software and you hereby waive any legal or equitable rights you have or may have against Hola Toolbar with respect thereto.

Since a browser hijacker is a malicious program, we recommend that you remove Holasearch.com using an authentic and effective security tool which could delete spyware automatically. You can acquire a reliable option (SpyHunter) by clicking on the download button below. However, this is only the first step of the removal procedure. It is important that you also change your browser settings so that the hijacker would not bother you again.
