Deceiving domain - home.sweetim.com

Type: Browser Hijackers

Home.sweetim.com is an unreliable search engine that can deliver modified search results to the user. This browser hijacker appears due to the "software bundling" technique that allows additional content installation through freeware or shareware. Not only your search provider gets hijacked but the default homepage and new tab URL also get modified.

Furthermore, the app delivers intrusive advertisements when the user is completing browsing sessions. These ads try to get the user involved in various beneficial-looking deals and offers. Nevertheless, you can be convinced to download and purchase rogue security utilities and services.

Another annoying feature that is related to home.sweetim.com is redirecting. These redirecting sessions can forcibly take the user to affiliate domains some of which might appear to be potentially dangerous and hold malware.
