Researchers have reported that Mys.yoursearch.me has a search engine that tries to copy Google. However, it will not deliver safe results. The harmful domain is associated with FVD Speed Dial browser extensions that could be downloaded from the Chrome Web Store or may enter the system through a bundled download. Mys.yoursearch.me is close to a browser hijacker that may have entered the computer disguised as a search assistant.

Why Do I Have Mys.yoursearch.me as My Homepage?

However, bundling could be avoided if the user opts out of the automatic installer and chooses the advanced one. Under the ‘advanced’ option, he can uncheck third party software.
Furthermore, Mys.yoursearch.me may have been available for download from the Chrome Web Store.
