Bit-Search.com Detailed Description

www.bit-search.com may appear as a legitimate search engine. However, in terms of security, it is better to use well-known search engines instead of providers that are unknown.

  • The homepage of the preferred Internet Browser may be changed to www.bit-search.com.
  • The default search provider in the browser’s built-in search box.
  • The page that shows when opening a new tab.

Installation of Third Party Software

If more attention is paid to the Terms of Use of the toolbar, the following will be noticed:

  • When clicking ‘I accept’ or a similar button, the user agrees to be legally bound to the Terms of Use of the agreement.
  • The search software can be uninstalled from the Add or Remove programs in the Control Panel, the toolbar for Mozilla Firefox excluded.

Uninstallation of www.bit-search.com

If the user finds the search engine unfitting to his needs, he may want to uninstall it. As already mentioned, the toolbar may be removed manually from the system. However, if changes to Registry have been made, Bit-Search may keep reappearing. Thus, completely removing it via antivirus software is recommended.

→ Important! For the sake of the future’s online safety, going for the advanced software installer is the best measure against third party intrusion.
