It is recommended to delete Search.searchleasier.com from browsers and then set another website as a homepage and search engine not without reason. Recent research has revealed that this search tool displays more advertisements and promotional links than decent search results based on the entered search query. The promotional content itself is not dangerous if a user does not click on it; however, it is impossible to avoid these ads and links if this dubious search tool is used to search for the information on the web every day. Stop doing that as soon as possible if you do not wish to encounter malicious software. No, these ads/links will not download bad applications on your PC, but they might redirect you to pages promoting unreliable software. Not all these websites respect the privacy of users too. Some of them might even try to obtain personal details by asking users to fill in some kind of form. Do not provide any details about yourself on third-party websites if you are not sure that they are fully reliable because this information might be recorded and then even sold to disreputable companies/people. Specifically speaking, privacy-related problems might quickly arise if you do that.
We know that you have not set this dubious search tool on your browsers willingly. In the opinion of our researchers, you see it because you have installed freeware from the web. No, its presence is not the fault of a free application. Instead, malicious applications often hide behind good programs and travel together with them so they would not be spotted. Carefully download freeware from the web, e.g. double-check whether you click on a real Download button and be sure that you install those free applications attentively because you might be allowed to choose whether or not to allow the installation of certain programs. Unfortunately, being cautious during the installation process does not always help to prevent undesirable software from slithering onto the computer, so, in the opinion of our researchers specializing in cybersecurity, users who surf the web on a daily basis should have a reputable security application installed on their computers too.
