Removal Tips (Delete is classified as a browser hijacker and a potentially unwanted program (PUP) because of how it works. This toolbar is known to attach itself to every browser that you own: Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, or Safari. After the secret infiltration, it begins acting according to the plan of its developers: the toolbar causes redirections to its webpage or other related pages.

From now on, you will have instead of your default search provider, new tab, and home page. This fact alone suggests that you really have to remove from your personal computer: not only all these actions are done without your permission, bu they also are responsible for your browser’s slower speed and worse overall computer performance.

Why is considered dangerous?

We have tried searching with this tool and found out that it is an original search engine. This means that the results are highly unreliable: you cannot know which link is legitimate and which can lead to a dangerous website. Browser hijackers are famous for displaying sponsored links, and that is why the results can be so threatening. Some links may not lead to a page that just simply needs traffic – no, they might redirect you to websites which are hacked thus installing malware, Trojans, and viruses onto your computer. What is more, this potentially unwanted program collects a lot of information about you. This data includes your browser language, your country, all the bookmarks you have, the search history and visited pages, URL and IP addresses, etc. This is done purely for advertising because the browser hijacker may display ads. If you do not want this application to share your info with third parties, uninstall now.

How did my computer get infected with

In many cases, it is not possible to download browser hijackers on your own. This case is no different: there is no download button on the official website of the hijacker. This leads to the fact that the PUP is spread in freeware and shareware bundles that can be downloaded online. If you have recently visited P2P or similar pirating sites, you might have got the infection from there. Our security team suggests downloading software and other content from official pages. However, you should still know that it is a must to choose Advanced or Custom installation settings if you download programs from unofficial webpages.

How to remove from my PC?

Also, Internet security should be your main concern from now on: avoid suspicious pages, do not click advertisements, and do not open spam emails.
