What is Tuvaro virus?
Tuvaro virus is a completely annoying infection, which may start causing redirects when you are browsing on the Internet. It typically takes over all web browsers, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer and other ones, and starts rerouting its victims to affiliate websites. Why its developers need this? The answer is very simple - Tuvaro redirects are used to increase page rank, visitors' traffic and similar factors. However, there is no guarantee that tuvaro.com won't trick you into visiting suspicious, unsafe and sometimes even dangerous website. That's why this program has already been labeled as browser hijacker and a potentially unwanted program. If you have already noticed redirects to unknown websites, an increased amount of pop-up ads, slow downs and similar issues, you should check your computer with updated anti-spyware and remove suspicious programs from it. Otherwise, you will have to deal with an increased risk of getting infected with more serious viruses. In addition, this search engine may start tracking your browsing habits and may start collecting data, which is related to your browsing history, search terms, etc. Such information is called 'personally non-identifiable' but we think that you shouldn't let unknown parties use it behind your back.
To sum up, we can't say that tuvaro.com is malicious or that it is used to spread malware. Nevertheless, it is clear that this search engine is promoted using unfair methods. In addition, it may lead you to various PC-related issues by showing you altered/forged search results or by showing continuous pop-up ads for its victims. Besides, such 'search engines' are also actively used to track users' browsing habits and then send this data to unkown third parties. If you want to protect yourself, please scan your computer with SpyHunter or other trustworthy application.
