What is Feed.protected-search.com

Feed.protected-search.com is another browser hijacker that comes to the computer without consent. Outwardly, you look like a regular search page like Google, Yahoo and so on. In reality, it’s not so good, because it makes changes to the browser. This changes the default homepage and search engine. After the changes are made, the browser constantly redirects to sites that contain ads. Moreover, it is worth noting that the hijacker collects and analyzes personal data about the user, including browsing history, Internet activity and much more. This data can be used for targeted advertising. If you find Feed.protected-search.com on your computer, then we strongly recommend that you remove it right away.
