SearchSuggests.com Removal Tips
SearchSuggests.com is a search engine that we definitely don’t suggest using. In fact, it is a browser hijacker and this means that it has sneaked onto your computer without your permission. The conclusion is simple: if there is a program that you didn’t install yourself, it should be eliminated. Another name for such an application is a PUP (potentially unwanted program). So, are there any more really good reasons for SearchSuggests.com removal? Well, yes.
The hijacker sets itself as you default search provider, new tab, and your homepage. Because of this, the only way to delete SearchSuggests.com is changing the settings of your Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Internet Explorer. There is also a possibility that there are other potentially unwanted programs on your personal computer.
Why is SearchSuggests.com dangerous?
There are some identical browser hijackers that you should also beware of, for example, Searchatomic.com and Exciterewards.com. They are created by the same developer and pose a number of threats to your PC. First of all, if you use SearchSuggests for your browsing, you may be a little disappointed. The results are not as good as if you used a reliable search engine. They can be full of links, which are sponsored by third parties. This means that they are not useful to the user. In fact, by pressing such a link, you may give way for viruses, malware, adware, and Trojans to infect your computer. Additionally, once you start browsing, you will see that something is suspicious. All pages that you visit will have advertisements on them. It is really dangerous to press such an ad: you can never know where it can redirect you to. Even if an ad says that it leads to discount offers, you may end up on a page which exists solely for spreading malware. Moreover, the browser hijacker collects non-personal information like your search history. If you do not want your information to be given to third parties, uninstall SearchSuggests.com now.
