Your Search Tool

Posted: February 24, 2020

The Your Search Tool is a browser add-on that poses as a useful utility, which can enhance your ability to search the Web by improving your browser's search features. However, the Your Search Tool does no such thing and, instead, its sole purpose is to modify your search settings, so that you will be taken to Search.yoursearchtool.com whenever you attempt to search the Web. While this change is not threatening, it can prove to be annoying certainly, especially since Search.yoursearchtool.com may end up promoting advertisements and sponsored search results that may not always be relevant.

This utility uses false advertising to get more users to install it, and its purpose is to generate traffic for a website it is affiliated with. The recommended thing to do is to remove Your Search Tool immediately – you can do this either manually, or by using the help of a suitable security tool. The removal of Your Search Tool should restore your Web browser's settings to their previous state automatically.
