According to our research team, it does not look like this tool can show unreliable or malicious search results; however, it redirects searches to a third-party engine without any warning, and that is an offense.

As you might know already, redirects search queries to, which is a well-known and widely used search provider. Although the results are not modified, that does not mean that the search tool is trustworthy. Its home page only displays a search field, and there is absolutely no information about it, its creators, or its activity. You do not know if records any data about users, if it works with third parties that might have access to data, or if it can be trusted at all. It is possible that the creator of this search tool is still building it, but, for the time being, it is very mysterious and, therefore, untrustworthy. This is the main reason we suggest that users delete it from their browsers. If you have been redirected to this engine randomly, do not use it, and think very carefully if the site or service that redirected you to it can be trusted.

You should not read beyond this point if you have not scanned your operating system yet. Scan it right away to figure out if there are other suspicious pieces that you need to worry about. Hopefully, there aren’t, and you can remove or, if you were redirected to it, just ignore and forget it.
