What does it do

It is a known fact that browser redirects travel along with freeware bundles. We doubt that you obtained it in any other way, as no one would install them knowingly. Because people rarely pay attention to application installation processes, this method allows browser hijackers and similar infections to be spread. Those offers will be hidden when you install software, and if you aren’t paying attention, you will miss them, which means they’ll be permitted to install. Don’t choose Default mode since they’ll not show anything. Choose Advanced or Custom mode when you are installing something, and added offers will become visible. You’re encouraged to deselect all the items. Only continue installing the software after you deselect everything.

Don’t press on the sponsored content which you’ll see among the results because you could be rerouted. Browser redirects want to reroute to particular sites so that owners can make money. When more people interact with advertisements, owners can make more revenue. You will be able to differentiate between those and legitimate websites without issues, mainly because they will not match your search inquiry. Some of the results might appear legitimate in the beginning but if you pay attention, you ought to be able to tell the difference. You could even end up on web pages that conceal malware.
