Do you know what Search.searchdescargar.com is?
Search.searchdescargar.com is, definitely, not a reliable search provider despite the fact that it shares similarities with reputable search engines, e.g. it opens a page with search results and allows users to open popular web pages (e.g. Facebook, YouTube, Amazon, etc.) with the click of a button. It is, of course, far from dangerous computer infections, e.g. Trojans, but it has several serious drawbacks. Our team of experienced researchers has tested this search tool in their lab and made several disturbing findings. First of all, it has been found that the search results page opened by Search.searchdescargar.com might be stuffed with commercial ads even though it is uses Yahoo!, which is a reputable search tool, service and, at first glance, provides only decent search results. On top of that, our specialists do not like how Search.searchdescargar.com treats the privacy of people who use it as a default search provider. Find these issues discussed in detail further in this article.
Search.searchdescargar.com cannot be called a reputable search tool because of the presence of the modified search results on the search results page it opens for users. Of course, they will not appear in a form of pop-ups or banners. More likely, they will look exactly like other search results. Despite the appearance both decent and modified search results share, the latter ones differ from those reputable ones in a sense that they might take users to untrustworthy websites that are not even associated in any way with the entered search query. Of course, we do not say that all the websites are bad, but research has clearly shown that users who use Search.searchdescargar.com every day to search the web might end up one day on a dubious website. A website cannot be called trustworthy when it contains links leading to third-party websites, untrustworthy software, or aggressively collects information about users. To be frank, Search.searchdescargar.com is not considered decent because it records too many details about its users as well.
