Deceiving domain - search.emailsearchtools.com

Type: Browser Hijackers

Search.emailsearchtools.com is a browser hijacker that alters major web browser settings such as the default search engine, homepage, and new tab URL. When the search provider is changed, the user is forced to use the new one and complete search queries through it. However, the browser hijacker takes search results from Yahoo and delivers them to the users as its own.

Furthermore, search.emailsearchtools.com can also initiate other activities such as advertising, redirecting the user to affiliate domains, and collecting non-personal browsing data. Browser hijackers like this one use the "software bundling" technique to reach users' computer systems and hijack web browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari, and Explorer.
