What do I need to know about these threats

You likely came across the hijacker accidentally, when you were installing freeware. Since these are very aggravating infections, we very much doubt you got it willingly. Because users don’t pay attention to program installation processes, redirect viruses and similar infections may be distributed. Those offers will be hidden when you install applications, and if you don’t pay attention, you’ll miss them, which means they will be permitted to install. Default mode will hide the items, and if you still decide to use them, you might infect your PC with all types of unwanted offers. Advanced or Custom settings, on the other hand, will make the offers visible. Unless you wish to deal with unfamiliar installations, deselect every item that becomes visible. And until you have done that, do not continue the installation. Even though they are insignificant infections, they take some time to deal with and may give problems when trying to get rid of it, so it’s best if you prevent their infection in the first place. We also suggest not downloading from questionable sources as you can easily acquire malware this way.

When a browser hijacker installs, you’ll know immediately. It will modify your browser’s settings, set a strange page as your homepage, new tabs and search engine, and it will be done even if you do not agree with the changes. All popular browsers will possibly be altered, like Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. And until you eliminate Searchweb.io from the machine, you will be stuck with the site loading every time you open your browser. Your initial response might be to nullify the alterations but take into considerations that the hijacker will simply modify everything again. If the browser redirect also sets a weird search engine for you, every time you look for something through browser’s address bar or the presented search box, your results would be made by that engine. Don’t press on the advertisement links which you will see among the results because you could be redirected. Website owners sometimes implement browser hijackers to increase traffic and make more revenue, which is why reroutes are occurring. With more people visiting the site, it is more likely that the ads will be interacted with, which makes profit. Often those sites have little to do with what you are were actually looking for. Some of the results could seem real in the beginning but if you pay attention, you should be able to differentiate them. During one these reroutes you might even pick up an infection, since those sites might be malicious software-ridden. In addition, the browser redirect may also be monitoring how you use the Internet and gathering certain kind of data about you. The information might then be shared with various third-parties, and it could be used by parties with questionable intentions. The information could also be used by the browser hijacker for the purposes of creating sponsored content which you’d be more prone to clicking on. You are strongly recommended to remove Searchweb.io as it will do more damage than good. And after the process is completed, there should be no problems with altering browser’s settings.
