VideoSearchUSA – What Does It Do?
VideoSearchUSA is an app that may be similar to other browser hijacker programs you may encounter on your computer such as the recently detected Template Search Redirect, Nearbyme.io and ISportSearch. These programs may get installed on your computer without your consent or knowledge. They may be added by software bundling or in other words if they get included in the installers of other programs, where the VideoSearchUSA software may be advertised as a seemingly useful application that is included as an optional extra added to the current installation.
VideoSearchUSA may begin to modify the settings of your web browser once it has been included on your computer. This includes that the app could change the home page, new tab page and the default search of your computer. This is the main reason why you could see the following types of ads as an aftermath:
- Pop-up promotions.
- Notification ads.
- Search result adverts.
- Highlighted text promotions.
VideoSearchUSA may be used to obtain the following details from your computer via trackers, like pixels, cookies, tags, and others of these types. The following information may be retrieved from your web browsers:
- Your search history.
- The sites you have bookmarked.
- Last pages you have visited.
- The mouse movements and click history.
- History of your browsed pages.
Not only this but also the VideoSearchUSA could be risky for your computer because some of the ads it shows cannot be verified or checked thoroughly. This is often how you could end up being redirected to dangerous websites in some scenarios. Such sites can end up being:
- Fake software download URLs.
- Fraud sites.
