Do you know what SaferSearchResults.com is?
SaferSearchResults.com is an official website of the browser extension Safer Search Results for Google Chrome that should block harmful search results shown by your search engine. This piece of software should protect computers and help users to prevent the entrance of malicious software; however, we would not be so sure that it is as beneficial as it claims to be. Our research team has thoroughly tested this tool recently and now they believe that this software promoted on SaferSearchResults.com might be quite dangerous. First of all, our experts do not like how this extension is distributed. They have found its two sources, i.e. the official website SaferSearchResults.com and the link in the Chrome Web Store (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/safer-search-results/begnofcbcefcedmomgdlmgcpmjafablp?utm_source=chrome-app-launcher-info-dialog); however, according to them, it might be true that it is distributed in a different way as well because many people who find this suspicious extension added to the list of extensions on their Google Chrome browsers swear that they have not installed it willingly. Secondly, it has been found that this extension might be responsible for a bunch of modified search results too. In other words, it might provide users with search results that have a potential of exposing them to potential threats. Last but not least, there is a possibility that it will collect information about users, as research has revealed. As can be seen, the SaferSearchResults.com extension is not a reliable piece of software since it might act in an undesirable way. Therefore, it should be removed from your Google Chrome browser as soon as possible.

In non-techie terms:
Not all the browser extensions are good even though they claim to be so. In some cases, they might be more dangerous that the actual malware. Therefore, users should check users’ reviews on the web before installing any new application. This, of course, does not always help to prevent untrustworthy software from being installed on the system, so, according to our team of security specialists, a security application has to be enabled on all computers that are connected to the Internet.
