What is InfoMajorSearch

InfoMajorSearch is an unwanted adware application designed to inject potentially dangerous advertising content into browsers working on macOS. Cyber experts suppose it is part of the AdLoad malware family which has developed a number of similar infections. Ads and banners promoted by InfoMajorSearch can use virtual layers to appear on any website a user is going to visit. Clicking on them may lead to unwanted or even compromised resources – fake download pages, phishing and scam websites, social engineering techniques, and other potentially infectious channels. Users infected with adware may also become victims of slower browser and computer performance. This is because such software is likely to work in the background consuming extra system resources to maintain its features. Moreover, unwanted software may be able to track information used in a browser. Entered passwords, IP-addresses, geolocations, and other sensitive information may be gathered and used for financial abuse. If you are struggling to delete InfoMajorSearch from Mac on your own, this guide will be the right place to visit. Below, you will find all removal instructions as well as how InfoMajorSearch could end up on your system.

How InfoMajorSearch infected your computer

Adware is notoriously distributed through fake Flash Player installers. Such installers may be promoted through pages and ads claiming your software is outdated or totally absent. It is also possible that adware got to your system while downloading some pirated or cracked software from third-party resources. This deceptive technique is called “bundling” when developers inject promotional offers like adware along with other software. Promotional offers can often be found titled as something “helpful” inside of “Advanced” and “Custom” sections. Unfortunately, because many people skip over such settings, they end up infected with unwanted programs without consent. Thus, it is important to pay attention and avoid installers from unofficial resources. Despite Mac’s famous anti-malware protection, there are infections educated enough to sneak through undetected.
