Do you know what Happygamesearch.com is?
Happygamesearch.com is a website having an appearance of a legitimate search tool. It shares similarities with search.yourinstantradio.com, search.yourinstantrecipes.com, and search.funsecuritytabsearch.com, so it did not take long to find out that this search tool is a new product of Imali Media. Since search tools belonging to this family are all quite dubious and might expose users to potential threats, our research team quickly understood that Happygamesearch.com is bad news too. Even though this website does not differ much from other legitimate search tools the way it looks, it has been found that it is not trustworthy at all. As a consequence, it would be smart to remove this dubious search engine to leave the place for a reputable search provider. In this article researchers have provided information about this undesirable search tool. In other words, you will find out why you should remove it from browsers. If you make a decision to eliminate this questionable web page after getting more knowledge about it, feel free to use our step-by-step manual removal guide which can be found below the last paragraph of this report.
At first sight, Happygamesearch.com is just an ordinary search provider. Yes, it has a search box, it returns search results, and it even allows users to access several websites providing useful service with one click (it has several quick access buttons in the top-right corner, e.g. Test Internet Speed and Scan PC); however, this still does not say anything about its trustworthiness. If you pay closer attention to the search results it shows for users, you will find out immediately why our specialists call it an untrustworthy search engine. It is not that easy to notice them, but you should just know that search results displayed by Happygamesearch.com cannot be trusted because they contain advertisements. They appear on the search results page to boost the traffic of particular third-party websites only. The author of this dubious search tool gets money for advertising these web pages, so there is basically no doubt that all these Imali Media search tools are developed to generate the revenue for the author. Of course, nobody is going to share the money with you even though you are the only one who visits these promoted websites. The only thing you can get is a bunch of untrustworthy software from these third-party websites. You might not even notice when it enters your computer. This is only the first problem associated with Happygamesearch.com.Happygamesearch.com screenshot

It is because users agree with the changes themselves but, of course, do not know about that. Actually, it is not at all surprising that so many users think that this search engine is installed silently because Happygamesearch.com is often distributed bundled with free applications and enters computers hiding behind them.
