About this hijacker

If you are constantly redirected to Search63.com when you open your browser, you probably have a browser hijacker installed. Hijackers aren’t serious infections but they shouldn’t be allowed to remain installed on a computer. They make changes to browser’s settings without permission and try to redirect to sponsored websites. This makes hijackers very noticeable infections. Unfortunately, a lot of users either do not recognize them as threats or do not care about their computer being infected. Even if they won’t directly harm your computer, hijackers can redirect to dubious or even malware-infected websites. Search63

Oftentimes, hijackers pretend to be useful and claim to provide search engines with superior results but that is not the case at all. Those seemingly useful features can be found on legitimate browser extensions, so there is no need to keep hijackers.

In addition to them making unwanted changes and causing redirects, hijackers also install without explicit permission. They come attached to freeware and may install alongside without you explicitly agreeing to it. This is why you should delete Search63.com.

How do hijackers spread?

Browser hijackers use the bundling method to spread, which means they are attached to freeware as extra offers. They come preselected so they’re permitted to install alongside the program. If you don’t want those attached offers to install alongside, you need to be more careful about how you install programs. Choose Advanced (Custom) settings during program installation and if any offers are shown, deselect them. We don’t recommend allowing any of the offers to install because if they use the bundling method, they’re probably more harmful than useful. You won’t install a dangerous malware this way, but browser hijackers, adware and other potentially unwanted programs are plenty annoying to deal with so be careful about how you install programs.

Why uninstall Search63.com?

You will notice when a hijacker installs onto your computer right away. It will change your browser’s settings and set its promoted website as your homepage. These changes will be irreversible unless you first get rid of the hijacker. The site that will be set as your homepage is very bare and only has a search box. It very clearly tries to resemble Google and likely wants users to think it is. If you use the search engine, the majority of results will be ads or leading to questionable websites. You should be careful about which results you click on because you could end up on a site that has malware on it. That malware could download onto your computer and you might not even notice. Those results will also likely have nothing to do with what you were looking for, so you have no business visiting them anyway.

Hijackers also collect information about users and their browsing habits. IP addresses, sites visited and search queries will be collected by hijackers, and while it’s not personal information, it’s still data hijackers should not have about you.
