Deceiving domain - websearch.eazytosearch.info

Type: Browser Hijackers

Websearch.eazytosearch.info is the misleading domain that poses a legitimate online search engine that supposedly provides positively improved search results with every attempt to find something online. However, this is nothing but a deceptive domain focusing on redirects and material that exposes users to advertising services and commercial content, so revenue gets generated.

There is nothing valuable about the search engine or the main websearch.eazytosearch.info domain, even though it is promoted as a great tool for finding anything online. This is a questionable page that is closely related to advertisers, so every search attempt is injected with banners, pop-ups, hyperlinks, and other types of commercial material that triggers more redirects to data-gathering online sites.

Continuous usage of the misleading search provider can lead to issues with privacy or even identity theft. Also, since this is the potentially unwanted program, it can alter particular preferences, settings of the system and even install other browser-based applications that affect your time online and machine further.
