Removing Searchmine From Mac

Searchmine is a browser hijacker that can be quite frustrating to deal with. It changes your default search engine and homepage without your consent, and it can be difficult to remove.

If you’re struggling with this pesky hijacker, don’t worry – we’ve got you covered. In this tutorial, we’ll walk you through the steps to remove Searchmine from your Mac.

Step 1: Quit Affected Browsers

The first thing you need to do is close any affected browsers. This will ensure that the removal process goes smoothly. To quit a browser on a Mac, simply click on the browser’s name in the top menu bar and select “Quit” from the dropdown menu.

Step 2: Clear Browser Extensions

Browser extensions can often be the culprit behind browser hijackers like Searchmine. To remove these extensions, follow these steps:

  • Safari:
    • Open Safari and click on “Safari” in the top menu bar.
    • Select “Preferences” from the dropdown menu.
    • Navigate to the “Extensions” tab.
    • Review the list of extensions and uninstall any suspicious or unwanted ones by clicking on the “Uninstall” button next to each extension.
  • Google Chrome:
    • Open Google Chrome and click on the three dots in the top-right corner of the window.
    • Select “More Tools” from the dropdown menu, then choose “Extensions.”
    • Disable or delete any extensions that seem suspicious or unwanted by clicking on the toggle switch or using the trash bin icon.
  • Mozilla Firefox:
    • Open Mozilla Firefox and click on the three horizontal lines in the top-right corner of the window.
    • Select “Add-ons” from the dropdown menu.
    • Navigate to the “Extensions” or “Appearance” tab.
    • Remove any suspicious or unwanted extensions by clicking on the “Remove” button next to each extension.

Step 3: Reset Browser Settings

If clearing the browser extensions didn’t solve the problem, you may need to reset your browser settings. Here’s how:

  • Safari:
    • Open Safari and click on “Safari” in the top menu bar.
    • Navigate to the “Privacy” tab and click on “Manage Website Data.”
    • In the search bar, type “Searchmine” to find any related data and click on “Remove All.”
  • Google Chrome:
    • Open Google Chrome and click on the three dots in the top-right corner of the window.
