Search.searchlttrnpop.com fake search engine

Search.searchlttrnpop.com deems to be a legitimate search engine which allows users to listen to the music directly from their browser. However, this questionable app is nothing but a browser hijacker which invades victims’ machines without permission and makes unwanted changes to each of the possessed browsers.

Also known as Listen To The Radio Now
Type PUP, Browser Hijacker
Developer Polarity Technologies Ltd.
Symptoms Altered browser settings, invasive ads, redirects to sponsored sites, slow downs

Listen To The Radio Now is another application created by Polarity Technologies Ltd. Just as Search.searchyrs.com, it promotes multiple music platforms (for example Spotify, SoundCloud, Youtube) and other social media websites. Additionally, clock, weather, and news links are added. According to developers, it is all done for the convenience of the user.

However, do not get fooled by all this “advanced functionality and enhanced search results.” These are merely promises which are entirely bogus, and usage of such suspicious app will bring more trouble than benefit.

Questionable applications hide in software bundles

Although Listen To The Radio Now can be downloaded officially in Google, Mozilla or other web stores, researchers noted,[3] that in most cases, it invades users’ machines with bundled software. This practice is prevalent amongst PUP and free software developers. Hence, if you are downloading programs like PDF creators, media players, free online games, optimization tools, etc., make sure you install them correctly and avoid suspicious applications you do not need.

To do that, always opt for Advanced/Custom installation mode. This way, you can eliminate all the additional components, which might otherwise be hidden in Recommended/Quick settings. Also, make sure you read the Privacy policy and EULA – it can provide you with vital information about the program you are about to install.

Stream videos without limitations, no matter where you are

There are multiple parties that could find out almost anything about you by checking your online activity. While this is highly unlikely, advertisers and tech companies are constantly tracking you online. The first step to privacy should be a secure browser that focuses on tracker reduction to a minimum.

Even if you employ a secure browser, you will not be able to access websites that are restricted due to local government laws or other reasons. In other words, you may not be able to stream Disney+ or US-based Netflix in some countries. To bypass these restrictions, you can employ a powerful Private Internet Access VPN, which provides dedicated servers for torrenting and streaming, not slowing you down in the process.

Data backups are important – recover your lost files

Ransomware is one of the biggest threats to personal data. Once it is executed on a machine, it launches a sophisticated encryption algorithm that locks all your files, although it does not destroy them. The most common misconception is that anti-malware software can return files to their previous states. This is not true, however, and data remains locked after the malicious payload is deleted.

While regular data backups are the only secure method to recover your files after a ransomware attack, tools such as Data Recovery Pro can also be effective and restore at least some of your lost data.
