Do you know what Searchonlinenow.net is?
Searchonlinenow.net is a search engine distributed by a browser hijacker infection. Thus, if you ever notice the presence of this search engine on all your browsers, it means that a browser hijacker has entered your system. Some users decide to keep Searchonlinenow.net and use it to search for the information; however, we do not recommend keeping it even if it promises to enable you to search for the information in images, videos, news, and shopping categories. It is advisable to delete Searchonlinenow.net as soon as possible because it might provide users with various untrustworthy links and advertisements that will be placed among normal search results. If you click on any of those links and ads, you might be taken to a corrupted website. As you can see, even though a search engine looks decent, the truth is that it is still dangerous, so you should always use only reputable search providers, e.g. Google.
Of course, the main reason why you have to erase Searchonlinenow.net is the fact that it might cause harm to your system. Unfortunately, Searchonlinenow.net browser hijacker will not only show modified search results, but will also collect information about your activities on the web in order to provide you interesting ads. As you can see, Searchonlinenow.net seeks to make you click on those ads and links. Thus, we believe that the owner of Searchonlinenow.net browser hijacker receives some money for that. It might share all this collected information with third-party companies. We hope that there are no personal details among those non-personal ones which Searchonlinenow.net collects because your privacy might be violated immediately.
