As with the other browser hijackers, in addition to giving you unreliable search results, it might also collect information about your browsing sessions, which is later used to generate ads that appear as annoying pop-ups. Clicking on them might also be dangerous. The Delta-Homes search engine handily displays quick links to Facebook, Youtube, Walmart, Linkedln and other popular sites, however they also might lead you to places that you did not intend to go to. Experts have also discovered that Delta-Homes uses google and other well known search engines to give you search results, which is suspicious in and of itself, as it is unclear why would a search provider do that.

As the search engine itself does not appear to be harmful, a lot of users who haven’t heard of this type of malware continue to use it, bringing irreversible damage to their systems. Thus it is highly recommended that you remove Delta-Homes from your browser without any procrastination. You can try to get rid of the browser hijacker manually; however this method might not eliminate all the other parasites that you may have caught through Delta-Homes.
