Tuvaro Search homepage just hijacked your browser? and you cannot change or remove it? 

Tuvaro Search is an extremely annoying adware, which poses a serious threat to personal data and security. Tuvaro is classified a Trojan, a browser hijacker, and a redirect virus by experts. It has various malicious traits which make it a PUA, or Potentially unwanted application.Tuvaro is distributed through 3rd party freeware bundles that are infected with the malware. When users install the freeware using the default installation settings, any additional programs that are bundled in the installation bundle are automatically installed, without separate user permissions. Hence choosing the custom or advanced settings can reduce changes of any malware or additional program being installed in the system. During the custom installation, users can choose not to install programs that they do not want, and deny any changes in the browsers or system.

What Is Tuvaro Search?

Tuvaro is a browser hijacking malware which changes the homepage and default search engine settings in all the browsers in your system. It will also add unwanted extensions to browser shortcuts and also lock these changes in using a lock file. Tuvaro also adds itself to Google and Facebook accounts where it posts on behalf of its users. Tuvaro will also constantly redirect you to various advertiser sponsored websites. Not only is this disruptive, but the sites that you might be redirected to could be infected with malware or spyware, and merely visiting these websites can trigger the malware download. Tuvaro also poses a serious threat to data security and privacy as it tracks user’s search details and keeps track of various financial and personal information that you might be using on websites. A Tuvaro infection can make u=you vulnerable to not just loss of money, but also potential identity theft. It is thus, highly recommended that this malware be deleted the moment its presence is discovered in the system.
