What is TigerVideoSearches?
According to cyber security experts, TigerVideoSearches is a potentially unwanted program (PUP) that belongs to the group of browser hijackers. Browser hijackers are developed to take over the web-browser and control user’s surfing preferences. It commonly aims at Google Chrome internet browser, but it’s possible that it can hijack other web-browser too. The browser hijackers and PUPs can sneak into the computer unnoticed due to the fact that it’s actively being promoted in free programs. We recommend that you delete TigerVideoSearches as soon as you notice the changes it has made to your home page, search provider and newtab page.
Typically, browser hijackers and potentially unwanted programs promote fake search engines by setting their address as the startpage or search engine of the affected web-browser. In this case, the browser hijacker changes the browser settings to tigervideosearches.com. That is, in other words, this browser hijacker is created for the sole purpose of forcing the user to visit the tigervideosearches.com address when the user opens the start page or uses the search provider. Therefore, the only way to get rid of a browser redirect to this unwanted website is to completely delete the browser hijacker associated with it. The reason for this is that PUPs and browser hijackers often block the ability to change browser settings, thus preventing the user from restoring the home page and search provider. For example, in this case, to remove tigervideosearches.com from the address of the start page and search provider, the user needs to uninstall the TigerVideoSearches hijacker.
In addition to the above, TigerVideoSearches is able to collect marketing-type data about you which can be later used for marketing purposes. You don’t know if your home address, account names and passwords are safe. And of course you completely don’t know what will happen when you click on any ads on the TigerVideoSearches website.
So, if you happen to encounter a browser hijacker or other such problem, then be quick and take effort to remove the browser hijacker as soon as possible. Follow the steps below to remove TigerVideoSearches. Let us know how you managed by sending us your comments please.
