How to delete Privitize VPN from search bar

Posted

There is another search box to the right of the website address box. It has Privitize VPN and a "magnifying" glass search symbol next to it. Is this safe? How to delete it? Thanks

hello wildy, is this the inbuilt searchbar in firefox you're seeing? if so, you can switch to another search provider or delete the ones you don't trust: Search bar - add, change and manage search engines on Firefox

Thanks, with your help, I deleted it from the selection of search engines. I presume it is no longer hiding anywhere in my computer.
