Do you know what is? may not look like it could cause you any trouble, but our researchers report it could display unreliable advertisements from the software’s third-party partners. The threat is considered to be a browser hijacker, which means it might modify some of the user’s browser preferences. Then while surfing the Internet, the application may begin showing annoying ads that might originate from untrustworthy sources, for example, scam web pages, malicious sites, etc. Naturally, as there are safer search engines to pick, we would advise users not to waste any time with and eliminate the browser hijacker before anything goes wrong. If you need any help with it the removal guide available at the end of the text should get you through the manual deletion process. Also, we welcome anyone who is interested in learning more about the threat to read our full report.

At the moment of writing, the application seems to be working with the Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer browsers. According to our specialists who tested the search engine, the tool might hijack user’s browser by modifying particular files belonging to it. For example, if the computer’s default browser is Google Chrome, the threat may modify files called Preferences, Secure Preferences, and Web Data. During the process, the browser hijacker would locate specific lines and replace some parts of them with full URL addresses to Because of such changes the mentioned browser might start loading this search engine instead of the user’s usual homepage, new tab page, and so on.

As we said in the beginning, the main problem with this tool is the possibility it could display unreliable advertisements. We could not find the application’s Privacy Policy or End User License Agreement documents to confirm it can provide additional third-party ads, but based on our experience with such threats we could say there is always a risk a browser hijacker might show ads to generate advertising revenue. Unfortunately, often such ads are not reviewed, and there are no guarantees they can be trusted, which might mean some of the advertisements could originate from websites containing malware, displaying pop-ups with fake lotteries or other scams, etc. Of course, without more information about the search engine, we cannot be sure it can act this way, but it seems to us the same lack of information suggests the tool cannot be trustworthy. Therefore, we would advise users not to trust and remove it before it could start showing you annoying and possibly dangerous third-party Removal screenshot
