What is Search Protect?

The Malwarebytes research team has determined that Search Protect is a browser hijacker. These so-called "hijackers" manipulate your browser(s), for example to change your startpage or searchscopes, so that the affected browser visits their site or one of their choice. This one hijacks your startpage(s) and your searchscope(s).

It also show advertisements on the startpage. In some cases leading to other PUPs.
