What Is Yahoo Search?
If your browser keeps redirecting you to search.yahoo.com whenever you are searching for something (and you haven’t set Yahoo as your default search engine yourself), then you probably have a browser hijacker on your Mac. Browser hijackers often come in the form of browser extensions/add-ons, though sometimes they can be apps too. Hijackers set default search engine or homepage/start page of a browser to specific search engines, and stop users from changing those back. Sometimes instead of that they just intercept users’ search queries to Google, Bing and other popular search engines and display search results on the hijacker’s search engine. You may follow instructions below to uninstall the browser hijacker and remove Yahoo Search from your browser.
