Do you know what Search.supermediatabsearch.com is?
Search.supermediatabsearch.com is a questionable search engine that will appear on your browsers after you download the software from supermediatab.com. To be honest, there are more people who allow this piece of software to enter their systems unwillingly; however, hundreds of users still download and install the SuperMediaTab extension themselves. We cannot blame them because this extension really seems to be a beneficial one at first glance. It says that it will enable users to watch TV on their computers, access online streaming websites, and will even “turn your browser into TV Media centre.” Unfortunately, it seems that users should not believe any of these promises because the SuperMediaTab extension only sets a new homepage, search engine, and New Tab page without permission. To eliminate this questionable search engine and set another one, you need to remove the extension from your Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome browsers. Unfortunately, this is the only possible solution to this problem.
Search.supermediatabsearch.com can be compared to such untrustworthy search engines as search.searchinsocial.com, search.realcoolmoviessearch.com, and search.emaildefendsearch.com. It does not differ much from them in the sense that it acts like an ordinary search provider, i.e. it returns search results if a user enters a particular word into the search box. Also, it contains easy-access links on its main page that should help to access online streaming, games, and other popular websites like Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and IMDb. Unfortunately, it does not mean that this search engine is trustworthy even though, judging from its appearance, it seems to be reliable. Specialists say so because they have managed to find out that Search.supermediatabsearch.com, like similar search engines mentioned at the beginning of the paragraph, is going to provide users with untrustworthy search results that might take them to third-party websites. Search.supermediatabsearch.com does not really care about your safety, so you might be even taken to a corrupted website distributing malicious software. Believe us; you might not even notice when malware enters your system.Search.supermediatabsearch.com screenshot
