If your default homepage suddenly changes to Yoursearching.com, then chances are there is a browser hijacker in your Web clients. The site looks plain and simple, which explains why it may not attract your attention initially. However, you should leave it immediately because the platform is not completely safe. Yoursearching.com looks like popular search engines. It resembles Google greatly to confuse the PC user. You may even detect the 'Web,' 'Images,' 'Videos' and 'News' database directories in the top left corner. The search field itself looks oddly familiar. Of course, the Google logo is absent because otherwise it may be the reason for legal disputes about copyright infringement. In addition to visual similarities, Yoursearching.com seems to borrow most of its results from Google directly. The problem is that the suspicious site manipulates them. Yoursearching.com adds above the sites sponsored links that match the criteria most accurately. There is nothing unique to this advertising activity: the developers of Yoursearching.com receive the corresponding commissions whenever they generate page impressions on the partner sites. However, the process may lead to two kinds of problems. First, visiting platforms that don't correspond to your terms may waste your time as these sites may not offer what you need. The second reason not to use Yoursearching.com concerns to the legitimacy of promoted domains. It is possible for some of them to host unsafe software or undertake various hoaxes. Since yoursearching.com doesn't offer a single feature that trustworthy engines don't have, it is advisable not to use it and to delete the harmful extension related to it.
