Qone8.com is a useless and very questionable search engine, which is similar to Portaldosites.com, Qou6.com and many other search sites. Just like these two search engines, this one can cause unrelated search results that may try to redirect you to unwanted websites. This is clearly done for monetization purpose. Nevertheless, you can never know how safe the website, which is promoted using such techniques, is. Of course, among these illegal and potentially malicious sites you will also be capable to find authentic search results, but why should you take this risk when you can easily use a reputable search engine and feel safe when browsing on the web. In addition, once Qone8.com hijacks each of your web browsers (it is compatible with Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, etc.) it then may start showing continuous pop-up ads, alterts and similar pop-up notifications. If this search engine has already appeared on your system as a start page, default search engine and new tab page without your permission asked, you shouldn't wait until it starts various modifications on it.
