DailyBestSearch(.)com – How Did I Get It?

You can get DailyBestSearch(.)com on your computer via a few methods. Usually, third-party installations are responsible for that. Bundled software and free programs, can put the hijacker on your computer. Setups for freeware apps can have additional components set as default installation. Various settings could be modified until you find out that the unwanted program is on your computer. Preventing installations you don’t want can be achieved if you find a Custom or an Advanced settings menu in the setup.

DailyBestSearch(.)com might use other methods to get its search engine pushed on your computer. One of the methods is through redirect advertisements on websites, such as banners, pop-ups or additional advertising content. The hijacker could also be spread with the help of suspicious websites hosting redirects. These websites could be partnered or affiliated with DailyBestSearch(.)com. The following browsers could be affected: Google Chrome, Internet Explorer/Edge, Safari and Mozilla Firefox.

DailyBestSearch(.)com – What Does It Do?

DailyBestSearch(.)com is the primary domain for the browser hijacker named BestDaily Search. You can take a look at how the website looks like in the following screenshot:

SensorsTechForum-dailybestsearch-com-best-daily-search-main-page

The DailyBestSearch(.)com web page is composed of a search bar, a background picture, and a toolbar from where you can select for what kind of results to be shown. That page replaces the search engine of your browsers, in addition to the new tab setting, and home page. Some browser preferences might be modified as well, or an extension could be set.

If an application associated to DailyBestSearch(.)com is inside your computer, such as a browser add-on, for instance, then you can see more modifications made to all of your browsers. Applications like that could install on your PC with bundled software. Be it extensions, add-ons, plugins, or other apps, they can all generate advertisements and display third-party content or redirect you when you browse. The redirects could land you on pages with a bad reputation. The pages could be partners or somehow affiliated with DailyBestSearch(.)com.

SensorsTechForum-dailybestsearch-com-best-daily-search-ben-afflek-search-results

In the image above, you can see the search results of DailyBestSearch(.)com. Apparently, you get redirected to the search results page of Bing. A probability exists that you could get redirected to other well-known search engines, too. Browser hijackers use this tactic, so you might get tricked and think you are using a reputable search engine. But if you look carefully, you will notice how before the search results load, your queries go through some redirects:

SensorsTechForum-dailybestsearch-com-best-daily-search-redirect

and

SensorsTechForum-dailybestsearch-com-best-daily-search-safe-finder-redirect-filter

The first one might display advertisements and targeted content, while DailyBestSearch(.)com obtains information about you and how you browse the Web from your search queries going through the servers of the Safe Finder browser hijacker.

Both search engines are related in a way and are probably affiliates. All gathered information from each search query can be sent to them.

Read on, to see what data can be collected from you by DailyBestSearch(.)com.
