Searchtodo.com acts exactly like Searchult.com, PortalSepeti.com, and Nettritue.com. Our team of specialists tested these search tools some time ago, so they today know what to expect from similar search engines. According to our team of specialists, the main reason Searchtodo.com cannot be called a trustworthy search tool is that it is powered by PortalSepeti (portalsepeti.com), which is known to be a browser hijacker. As all the searches are redirected to this engine, you might see unreliable search results. It is known that they might contain sponsored links promoting third-party websites. Users are informed about that in the End User License Agreement, but we are sure that they do not know anything about this information because many of them decide to keep Searchtodo.com: “To provide relevant information not found on our Web site, Searchtodo.com may provide links from our Web sites to third party Web sites.” It is hard to say whether these promoted websites are good or bad. In fact, users might not even know that they have clicked on a sponsored search result. The only way to make sure that you are not taken to a bad website is to delete Searchtodo.com from browsers and then immediately set another search engine in the place of this Brazilian search tool.Searchtodo.com screenshot
