What is Search.loginemailaccounts.com? And how does it work?

Search.loginemailaccounts.com is a browser hijacker that alters your home page and search engine from its default settings to new suspicious ones. It tries to attract users using links that gives you quick access to popular sites such as Gmail, Yahoo, Facebook, YouTube, Amazon and Twitter. This hijacker is promoted through the help of a “Login Email Account” which is a browser add-on that is compatible with all kinds of browsers. Based on its name, this browser extension is supposed to make logging into email accounts easier but the truth is all it does is hijack your browsers without your permission. Search.loginemailaccounts.com is created by Polarity Technologies Ltd. which is not shocking, really. This company is known for developing browser hijackers and has already spawned countless unwanted programs.
When you try to search for anything using Search.loginemailaccounts.com, all it does is to redirect you to Yahoo search. This could only mean that the results it displays are modified with the goal of delivering you sponsored contents through ads, pop-ups, links, banners, etc. These sponsored contents aims to generate profit via pay-per-click marketing. And so the search results can’t be trusted not to mention that this hijacker could also spy on you in order to constantly bombard your browsing with never-ending ads that matches your preferences. Therefore, you must take preventive measures for your computer’s sake.

How does Search.loginemailaccounts.com spread online?

Another suspicious thing about Search.loginemailaccounts.com is that it does not have any official distribution site which leaves security analysts to the conclusion that this unwanted program is distributed through third-party installers. These third-party installers are mostly found on free sharing sites that offers software bundles. When you install bundled programs there’s a high chance that the other programs in the bundle can get installed as well. To avoid this, make sure you always go for the Custom or Advanced installation process.
