What is Search.gg?
If redirections to Search.gg are happening every day, your computer must be infected with an infection called a browser hijacker. This infection “hijacks” users’ web browsers by changing their settings. After the infiltration of a browser hijacker promoting Search.gg, you will see a new homepage and search tool set. Of course, it will be Search.gg. If you still think that it is a harmless page, you are wrong because this website might cause you a bunch of problems, so doing nothing about its presence on your browsers is the worst thing you can do. A number of users have already experienced problems associated with the usage of Search.gg. Do not be one of them – go to uninstall Search.gg from your browsers today. Most probably, there is no need to say that users who postpone the Search.gg removal might cause an irreversible damage to their PCs.
What does Search.gg do?
Search.gg is a browser hijacker and not a trustworthy search tool, so it is not worth expecting that it will act in a beneficial way. It will display search results like ordinary search tools do, but you, unfortunately, cannot trust them. It is because they are full of commercial advertisements. These ads you see might look like trustworthy search results based on the search query, but they are not. Search.gg displays them to you because it expects you to click on them and visit pages they promote. Any kinds of websites might be promoted, even those untrustworthy ones with infectious contents, so using Search.gg is a really bad idea. It not only shows ads, but might also collect personal information. The same can be said about third-party pages it might redirect users to – they might gather information about users as well. Information about users is a valuable thing these days because it can be expensively sold. Do not let an untrustworthy search tool collect this information – remove Search.gg from web browsers as soon as possible.
Why my browsers’ settings have been changed?
You see new settings set on all your web browsers because a browser hijacker has infiltrated your computer and then made modifications to be able to launch Search.gg to users. We are sure you have not downloaded a browser hijacker voluntarily because its official website does not exist; however, you could have installed an untrustworthy software bundle from the web. In these bundles, browser hijackers come together with various free applications, so it is hard to notice them. No matter how this threat has entered your computer, delete Search.gg from browsers as soon as possible.
How can I remove Search.gg?
You need to delete Search.gg from browsers as soon as possible if you do not want to detect malicious software on your computer soon. You can implement the Search.gg removal either manually or automatically. None of these methods are bad, but you should go to delete this search tool automatically if it is the first time you have found your browsers’ settings changed because browser hijackers are threats which are not so easy to erase.
