Do not let the appearance of Search.searchtsbn.com fool you – it is not what it seems to be. In other words, it is not one of the legitimate search providers, so if you want a piece of advice from us, it would be best to remove it from all affected browsers. You should not use it as your default search tool even though it does look like a powerful search engine because it might show some modified search results. To be more specific, you might be presented with various sponsored links that, theoretically, might take you to untrustworthy websites. Of course, not all these modified search results are linked to dubious websites, but you should still not use Search.searchtsbn.com because you cannot know whether you will not be one of those users who end up on those untrustworthy pages. All these modified search results are a huge drawback of this search engine, but it is not the only reason it would be best to remove it. If it stays and you use it to perform web searches, it will record various details about you. It might even record some personal details if you enter them in the search box and, later on, might share the collected information with third parties, which would put your privacy at risk. As long as you keep Search.searchtsbn.com set on your browsers, it will also automatically gather a bunch of non-personal details, including whether you use Windows or Mac OS, pages you visit, Internet Service Provider, IP address, your geographic location, and much more. Even though all these details cannot identify you personally, you should still not let the browser hijacker record them because nobody knows where this information will be used.Search.searchtsbn.com screenshot
