Logic Search


The Logic Search virus removal guide on this page will help you remove Logic Search, viruses, malware, adware, and other threats from your computer.

What is Logic Search?


Logic Search (also referred to as Logic Search virus) is a browser extension for Google Chrome and other popular web browsers that is self-described as “the best way to search.” Despite the fact that the extension may appear to be an innocuous tool, Logic Search can read your personal data, track what you do online, and make unwanted changes to your browser settings even while you’re in incognito mode.

The primary function of the Logic Search extension is to intercept and obtain what users search for online. For example, if you search the web using the address bar you will be redirected to feed.logic-search.com for a brief moment before being redirected again to a real website such as yahoo.com. This is so that the extension can trick you into visiting their website so that they can install tracking files and spy on your internet activity.

As shown in the image above, the extension has permission to read and change data on a variety of websites, change your search settings, and read browsing history even while a user is in incognito mode.

Bundles with malware and viruses


An issue with the Logic Search extension is that it may bundle with and/or be advertised by malicious advertising networks that also spread malware, adware, browser hijackers, spyware, computer viruses, and other security threats. Simply put, if the Logic Search extension was installed or you notice advertisements supporting it, it is likely that your computer is infected with malware and/or you are being tracked.
