What is BABYLON search

BABYLON search is a misleading search site that can be attached to your browser window in Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, and other popular Internet browsers. The main culprit is a browser hijacker that gets on a user’s computer bundled with other freeware and is installed unknowingly. If the Babylon virus manages to infiltrate the user’s computer, the first thing that it does is changes the settings of the web browser and sets a new tab address, homepage and search engine to https://search.babylon.com/. The primary goal of Babylon search publishers is to earn money by displaying commercial content. Thus, the user does not get any benefit from the searches provided by Babylon since they are filled with affiliate links. Also, a huge amount of ads caused by the hijacker affects the performance and speed of the infected computer significantly. To stop this, you need to remove BABYLON search and all related apps from the device. This can be done by means of anti-malware programs (Norton or Norton Antivirus) that are designed to fight and remove malware infections.
