Is searchencrypt.com really "safe"?
Norton Security Premium 2019 installed on a new Win 10 laptop.
My search window is normally Norton Safe Search. Occasionally, don't know why but my search window goes to "searchencrypt.com". Looks like a normal search window but goes into the add chrome extension routine. Before adding checked to assure Norton considers safe and there is the green check mark, "OK" with details on the Norton web site.
In a chrome search all (except their own advertisement) references to searchencrypt.com are sites advising how to remove this malware / spyware. Users trying to get rid of it cite it's intrusive behavior including incessant advertising, popups and goodness only knows what info they possibly steal. Seems nobody likes it.
What's to be believed? Overwhelming fear / dislike of the site or Norton's OK?
Does my Norton Security Premium have the smarts / horsepower to remove it if it got into my PC?
