What is Allsearchsite.com

Allsearchsite.com is a dubious search engine that users may start seeing abruptly in their browsers (Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Edge, or Internet Explorer). The appearance of such domains often originates from unwanted software (or extensions) classified as browser hijackers that get installed without users’ permission. Unlike other browser hijackers, Allsearchsite.com is capable of generating its own results, however, it can be that some of them will be suspicious or simply irrelevant. Furthermore, browser hijackers often tend to cause sponsored redirects to various pages for generating revenue. Such pages may endorse unwanted content and promote low-quality software like system optimization utilities. While Allsearchsite.com is not a virus, its capabilities may be enough to create various threats for its users. Sometimes browser hijackers have to what you surf and enter inside of your browser, this way monitoring potentially valuable information (passwords, IP-addresses, geolocations, etc.). Thus, be it an unwanted program or extension (or both) ensuring the operation of Allsearchsite.com, it is advised to delete it from your system completely. Note that sometimes unwanted software is stubborn and hard to delete without specific instructions or tools. Follow our guide below to delete it correctly and without traces.

How Allsearchsite.com infected your computer

As mentioned, unwanted browser changes are often caused and sustained by dubious software or extension that may get installed without permission. Such installations often occur when users download software installers from unofficial third-party websites (pirated, cracked, or repacked). A browser hijacker may be presented as an additional offer and be hidden inside of “Advanced”, “Manual”, “Custom”, or similar sections. The installers may encourage you to install this offer because it is will be “useful” for your experience. In many cases, it is necessary for users to participate in selecting such offers for installation. They are often pre-set for automatic installation, which means their omission (skipping) will lead to its installation as well. Apart from this, some infiltrations can also occur while visiting suspicious pages that execute malicious scripts to run an infection in the background. Beware of downloading dubious software and browsing unreliable pages around the Internet. Read our guide below to get some practical tips on protecting yourself against such threats in the future.
