Home Malware Programs Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs) SearchAnyGame


Posted: September 28, 2020

SearchAnyGame or SearchAnyGame Search is a browser add-on that you might often be offered to install by intrusive browser advertisements and pop-ups. As the add-on's name suggests, SearchAnyGame is meant to help users find entertaining online games and other content related to video games. However, the installation of SearchAnyGame yields entirely different results. This extension's installation can only be completed if you grant it permission to replace your browser's default search engine and new tab page. This request is not meant to cause any harm, but it might disturb your Web browsing experience by forcing you to use 3rd-party sites that you are not familiar with.

SearchAnyGame is categorized as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP,) and we advise you not to install it. The fact that it is a PUP is not the only reason for this – the add-on does not bring any valuable features, and the only noticeable change that you may experience is a negative one. SearchAnyGame will replace your default search engine with Feed.searchanygame.com, and the new tab page with Portal.searchanygame.com. If your browser is redirecting you to any of these websites, then the SearchAnyGame PUP's presence is the likely reason for this. You can solve this minor annoyance by running a computer security tool to help you with SearchAnyGame's removal.
