YourBestSearching – What Does It Do?
YourBestSearching is not an application that has particuarly a new idea. Once it is installed on your computer, this software could begin to perform a lot of unwanted actions in it. One of those is to begin changing the settings of your web browser. This is done so that you have all your default pages replaced and you start seeing tons of ads. We have also seen this type of unwanted behavior in other apps, like YourBestSearching, such as Nation Search, Firesear.ch and ConvertItSearch.
People are often wondering how did they end up with such a pesky software installed on their machine. One of the main ways these apps get added is known in the trade as software bundling. The way it works is fro YourBestSearching to be advertised as a “free extra” or an “optional offer” that is included somewhere in the installation steps of another free app you may have recently added. The outcome of this is that YourBestSearching could be installed alongside and you might have missed it. The main reason for this is that this app could be promoted in the “Custom” instead of the “Express” install of the third-party setup it is added to.
YourBestSearching is the type of software, whose main business is centered around the ads it shows. The developers of this program have made it so that they can profit from leading traffic (people) to those ads and they get paid likely per ad. They may also work based on an order (somebody paid them to advertise a specific site) and all they do is purely for profit. Some adware developers do not care what they advertise on computers and this is how YourBestSearching could be a very risky software for your computer. These are only some of the websites to which you may be led to, if you have seen or clicked on a YourBestSearching ad:
- Fake retailer stores designed to steal credit card data.
- Fake surveys.
- Sites that contain malware (very dangerous).
- Sites that are Tech Support Fraud ones and display fake error messages to scare you.
- Scams and frauds of new types.
- Phishing sites.
And it is not easy to avoid these ads, either. If you have seen or clicked on the following advertisements, then your computer is most likely currently at risk:
- Ad-supported search results.
- Push notification ads.
- Other forms of ads.
This is the main reason to consider removing this software, since the longer it stays on your computer, the more it will be exposed to security problems.
