The portal does not appear to partner with initiatives like the Google Safebrowsing, Mozilla Phishing Protection and Web of Trust (WOT).
Moreover, there are reports that the site is connected to cases of browser hijacking. Users reported that their browser might open Yousearch.io as a new tab and start page without their approval. The browser hijacker in question is designed to alter the configuration of Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Mozilla Firefox so that users are presented with content at Yousearch.io. Also, the Yousearch.io browser hijacker may load pop-up windows that urge users to install riskware like WinRepair Pro and SafetyNut and claim pay-per-install revenue for its developers. Browser hijackers are not perceived as threats to sensitive data and user-generated content, but they may reroute users to phishing portals and suggest users download potentially dangerous apps. Computers that are affected by the Yousearch.io browser hijacker might not offer optimal browsing environment and proper security.
