Do you know what is? is a browser hijacker that tries to attract you by providing you with easy-access links to a bunch of well-known email providers, including Gmail, Yahoo Mail, Outlook, and Hotmail. The hijacker should be introduced with the help of “Login Email Account,” which is a browser extension compatible with Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer. This extension – as you can tell by the name – is meant to make logging into email accounts easier, but, in reality, it was created to introduce you to the hijacker. This hijacker was created by Polarity Technologies Ltd., and this company stands behind,,, and hundreds of other hijackers that work in the same way.

Another thing about that is very worrying is its ability to redirect you to Yahoo Search. Even if you are familiar with this search provider, you cannot trust it in this situation because the hijacker can easily adjust the results shown to you. Is this dangerous? If the links it adds are malicious, it definitely can be dangerous. Because of this, we do not recommend interacting with the search results at all. If you do, remember to act cautiously.

Overall, the suspicious does not offer highly beneficial services, and it could put your virtual security at risk. Due to these reasons, you should not postpone the removal of this threat for much longer. The good news is that the elimination of this threat is not that difficult.

In non-techie terms:

Even though looks like a normal search engine, it is a browser hijacker that, in most cases, enters the operating system and takes over the browser in a very suspicious manner. Once the infection is in, it can trick you into interacting with potentially unreliable links, which are shown after illegally redirecting to Furthermore, it was found that personal data can be recorded by the hijacker, and there is a possibility that this information would be leaked. Needless to say, it is best to delete, and the sooner you take care of that, the better.
