What is searchbee.net?

Claimed by the developers, searchbee.net is a “high-quality” Internet search engine that generates enhanced results and, therefore, and much improved the browsing experience. Upon first inspection, searchbee.net may seem legitimate and a useful tool, but, this website is promoted  by rogue download/installation set-ups that immediately hijack browser options and stealthily alters various settings. In addition, searchbee.net tracks and records  Internet browsing activity by collecting user-system information.

After its infiltration,  the rogue set-ups hijack the commonly used internet browsers such as Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox, stealthily modifying the new tab URL, homepage, and default search engine options by assigning them to searchbee.net. Moreover, they append this URL to the target of each browser shortcut. Set-ups install a number of third party applications and/or browser extensions or simply called “helper objects” which automatically reassign the aforementioned settings when attempts are made to revert them back. Therefore, users are unable to return browsers to their previous states and continually encounter the annoying unwanted redirects to searchbee.net, which also significantly diminish  the web browsing experience. Furthermore, browsing activity is continually tracked, since searchbee.net and helper objects continually record user-system information that might be personally identifiable such as the IP addresses, URLs visited, search queries, etc. and is  later shared with  or sold to third parties who misuse personal details to generate revenue. Definitely, the information tracking can lead to serious privacy issues and or  even identity theft. If you encounter pesky  unwanted redirects to searchbee.net, immediately eliminate all suspicious applications/browser plug-ins and never visit this rogue site again.

The searchbee.net hijacker is similar to the secure-surf.net, powerofsearches.com, speedydialsearch.com, and many other sites. As with searchbee.net, these sites also claim to improve the browsing experience, however, fake search engines are designed only to generate revenue for the developers’ benefit mainly. Rather than providing any significant value for regular users, instead, they cause unwanted redirects and continually record user-system information earn even more. Some even generate results leading to malicious and infectious websites. Moreover, using fake search engines can also lead to high-risk adware or malware infections.


How can searchbee.net install get in to the computer?

Primarily, this website is promoted through rogue downloaders/installers. And they are using this deceptive marketing method is called “bundling”. Users usually rush the download/installation processes and carelessly skip some steps and the developers are aware of this, so, they hide browser modifications details within the “Custom” or “Advanced” options of these processes. So by skipping this section, users  may inadvertently grant set-ups permission to alter browser options, expose their systems to risk of various infections, and compromise their privacy.


How to avoid installation of potentially unwanted applications?

In order to prevent this situation, always be very cautious when downloading and installing software into your computer. First, always remember to select the “Custom/Advanced” settings and closely analyze each step. Second, always decline offers to download/install additional applications and opt-out of those already included. Take note to always be cautious to avoid such infection.
