Do you know what Search.searchcpn.com is?
Search.searchcpn.com is a dubious page targeting all popular web browsers. It is a part of iCoupon Clipper application, and it, evidently, pretends to be a legitimate search provider. Do not get fooled by this dubious page because it is far from a trustworthy search tool. Instead, it is usually classified as a browser hijacker by specialists. It has been placed into this category not without reason, of course. A bunch of users cannot explain how and when Search.searchcpn.com has replaced their existing homepages, so it must be true that it changes settings on browsers without a user’s consent.

Search.searchcpn.com is based on the same template as search.yourinterestscenter.com, search.yourmapscenter.com, and search.youremailnow.com. In other words, it does not differ much from other search providers developed by Polarity Technologies Ltd. Researchers have managed to find out that this dubious website, even though it looks like a reliable search tool, cannot be called trustworthy by any means because it might redirect users to unknown third-party websites. This might happen if you click on sponsored links or ads provided by Search.searchcpn.com. Yes, you have understood correctly – this search tool shows the commercial content for users even though it should only display Yahoo! search results. Most probably, it has been developed to generate the revenue for the company that has developed it, meaning that the most important thing is money and not the safety of users. As a consequence, it is not surprising at all that users see these sponsored search results. According to security specialists, some of these search results might redirect to bad third-party websites, so if you wish to surf the web smoothly and safely, you need to go to delete Search.searchcpn.com. If you let it stay, it will expose you to threats and cause a number of problems. And we are talking not only about the entrance of bad software here.Search.searchcpn.com screenshot

It is very likely that users who see Search.searchcpn.com when they open their web browsers have not set this search tool willingly as their homepages.
