Searchutorrm.com has been developed on the same template as a bunch of search tools developed by Polarity Technologies Ltd. Therefore, it does not differ much from these older websites. First, it changes all browsers’ (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox) it finds installed on the system settings. Specifically speaking, Searchutorrm.com becomes a homepage. Because of this, it is the first page users notice when they open any of their web browsers. It might seem at first glance that this web page is a legitimate search tool, but we can assure you that it is not. Unfortunately, many users do not know that it is a troublesome browser hijacker and use it to perform web searches. It is a huge mistake they make. Using this search engine to find the information on the web might even result in the entrance of malicious software. Let us explain this briefly to you. Our team of experienced specialists has carried out research which has revealed that Searchutorrm.com does not show trustworthy search results like Google, Yahoo!, or other reputable search engines do. Instead, it displays sponsored search results promoting third-party pages. They are displayed to users expecting that they will click on them. The more users click on them, the more money the developer of this browser hijacker gets. It might be extremely dangerous for users to click on those ads because they might redirect to corrupted pages. These pages might be administered by cyber criminals and try to install malware on your computer. On top of that, they might also collect personally-identifiable information.

Research has revealed that Searchutorrm.com collects information about users too. It seems that it does not try to hide this fact because this information is available in its Privacy Policy document and users can access it easily at any time. If you open this document and read it from beginning to end, it will become clear that two types of information are recorded by Searchutorrm.com: personal and non-personally identifiable information. Luckily, it will access only those personal details submitted by users. Unfortunately, the majority of people do not read Privacy Policy documents and, consequently, do not know how Searchutorrm.com is going to act on their systems, so we are sure they will fearlessly use it as a default search tool. These users risk encountering malware and experiencing privacy-related issues.
