Do you know that thing that happens where you click on a link and get redirected to a different link? That annoying and repetitive redirection is caused by the Search Encrypt. This walkthrough explains how to install and remove search encrypt.

What Is Search Encrypt?

In addition to the previous fact, Search Encrypt is a browser hijacker that redirects you to malicious websites and slows down your browsing experience. This extension is not safe to use, so we recommend getting rid of it as soon as possible.

Furthermore, most websites on the internet have some sort of tracking code. This means they can access your information like your location, your device, and your browsing behavior. Search Encrypt doesn’t track search history in any user identifiable way.
