What is SportStreamSearch

SportStreamSearch is a browser-hijacking application that fills users’ browsers with additional intrusive content and tons of redirects to ad-supported pages. Once installed, the hijacker starts altering the browser’s configuration without the user’s permission or knowledge. After these changes, you can expect several suspicious activities such as irrelevant search results, redirecting to partner websites, and placement of commercial content. Note that this activity might lead to insecure pages and proliferate other malware on your device as well. The manual removal of SportStreamSearch is possible, but you need to find all the related files and applications, which is time-consuming. That’s why you better use an automated removal tool.
