Owsc.xyz is a basic search engine, which may be set as your browser's default search service and new tab page. This happens without your approval, usually with the help of a browser hijacker that modifies your system settings and replaces them with the domain owsc.xyz as the homepage and search provider without user's consent. Thankfully, this change is not malicious. It may, however, hinder your ability to find reliable search results since Owsc.xyz is not as reliable as popular search providers like Yahoo, Bing, or Google. Please follow this guide in order to remove owsc.xyz from your computer.

The browser hijacker that introduced Owsc.xyz to your browser may have been installed when you fell for a fake download or tried installing a low-quality software bundle. Thankfully, hijackers are not dangerous, and they are not a critical security concern. Despite this, it is still recommended to get rid of them as soon as possible.

Once the Owsc.xyz hijacker is gone, your browser's settings should be back to normal.
