Usually, users tend to stay away from unreliable search engines, and they prefer using Google, Bing, Yahoo, and other popular online search solutions. However, Additionalsearch.co.uk may use aggressive methods to get users to take advantage of its services. This website is linked to a browser hijacker whose purpose is to modify a Web browser's settings so that it redirects users to Additionalsearch.co.uk whenever they perform some particular actions.

For example, the Additionalsearch.co.uk hijacker's installation may lead to unwanted changes to a Web browser's default new tab page, homepage or default search engine. Naturally, these changes are not permanent, but some browser hijackers may prevent users from restoring their settings unless they uninstall the browser hijacker causing the problem. Keep in mind that Additionalsearch.co.uk is not a threatening Web destination, and using any of its features will not threaten your online safety.

If you didn't set Additionalsearch.co.uk as your Web browser's default new tab page, home page or search engine intentionally, yet you still see this page whenever you launch your Web browser, then you might have a browser hijacker installed on your computer.
