Bogots.com webpage looks primitive, small logo with the search bar under it and nothing more. However, you should not trust bogots.com since it provides user with pop-up ads, in-text links, banners and other kind of advertisings, while browsing the Internet. Bogots.com is intrusive adware, it will show you ads whether you want them or not, it is even able to disable AdBlock or any other advertisements blocking extensions. If you search for something using Bogots.com search engine your search results will be filled with numerous advertisements and links to suspicious websites. There are no benefits from using Bogots.com, unless you like to be spammed by ads. Not to mention that you are risking to expose your personal information including browsing history, cookies, search queries and even your logins and passwords. All of that information might be collected without your authorization and knowledge and transferred to the third party.

Usually Bogots.com browser hijacker comes to the victim’s pc bundled together with freeware or shareware programs. I don’t think that anyone would set Bogots.com as default homepage and search engine when we have google.com that satisfy all of our needs. That’s why the developers of adware are trying to force users to use their products. During the installation of the freeware if you don’t pay attention to the EULA and select express installation you will get some additional and usually unwanted programs such as extensions, toolbars and hijackers on your computer. So, first of all try to avoid downloading freeware programs from unofficial websites and waste few minutes of your time and select custom installation. You will be able to see all of the third party programs that might be installed along with the main program and you can easily unselect them and avoid the infection by adware and malware.
