Do you know what Search.safesidesearch.com is?
Search.safesidesearch.com is a search engine which applies changes to browsers after a user installs an extension from safesidetab.com. It is not very likely that a user will come across its official website himself/herself, so our specialists believe that people notice pop-up ads that advertise Safesidetab extension and then decide to install it. People mainly do that because this extension promises to “provide the security needed” and we cannot blame them because this extension might really seem to be beneficial at first sight. Of course, users are not informed that Search.safesidesearch.com search engine will apply changes to their browsers and often find this surprising. Do not worry; you can eliminate Search.safesidesearch.com rather easily from your browsers. This is the only thing that you can do in order to change your default search engine and a New Tab page.
It is known that Search.safesidesearch.com is a product of IMALI – N.I. MEDIA LTD. The search engine itself is very similar to other existing search providers, including Search.realcoolmoviessearch.com, Search.searchinsocial.com, and Search.emaildefendsearch.com. Like the search engines listed in the previous sentence, there is a slight possibility that Search.safesidesearch.com can provide users with sponsored content even though its search page leads users to us.search.yahoo.com. In most cases, various links and ads that belong to third-parties are blended with legitimate search results, so it is a really challenging task to recognize them. Even the buttons at the top of Search.safesidesearch.com, which should lead to the web pages that allow users to check the speed of the Internet connection and scan the system against malware, might expose you to potential threats by taking you to corrupted web pages. Finally, there is a tiny possibility that your search queries will be recorded if you use the search box placed on the Start page of Search.safesidesearch.com. As you can see, Search.safesidesearch.com is not very dangerous itself but there are still some disturbing facts about it. Therefore, you should set another search engine instead of it.Search.safesidesearch.com screenshot
