Remove Secure Search Bar
What is Secure Search Bar?
Secure Search Bar is a search bar that appears below the address bar when users try to find information using the search bar Google Chrome has. The cursor is also dropped in this bar, so users are forced to use Secure Search Bar instead of the one belonging to the Google Chrome browser. Users cannot understand why this happens, and they are sure that they have not applied any changes to their browsers’ settings themselves. As a consequence, malware experts are 99% sure that a malicious application is responsible for the presence of this new search bar. The good news is that if you have a Firefox browser, you will not need to deal with this issue.Unfortunately, it is not know which malicious program should be blamed for setting Secure Search Bar on Google Chrome browsers, so it will not be a piece of cake to uninstall Secure Search Bar as well. If the methods we are going to talk in the last paragraph of this article do not work, you might even need to reinstall your browser or check the Proxy settings.
What does Secure Search Bar do?
Some kind of malicious application has already affected the computer if a user is forced to search the web through Secure Search Bar. Instead of opening search results of the default search engine set, it opens Bing search results. Even though this search provider is not considered malicious, users might still be provided with commercial ads which are only shown for them to generate the revenue. Clicking on them might be disastrous because third-party websites might contain malicious software and try to install it on users’ computers. What is more, some users claim that they not only see Secure Search Bar, but also get all kinds of pop-up advertisements. They might be as dangerous as promotional links shown on the Bing search results page, so clicking on them is not advisable. Instead, go to delete Secure Search Bar as soon as possible.
