What is LifeStyle New Tab?
It might really seem that you will gain access to the “latest information on lifestyle” if you install LifeStyle New Tab. This extension can be added to Google Chrome only because it is compatible with this browser and is primarily aimed at people who use it. In most cases users install this add-on themselves because they believe that they will get more information about healthy eating, workouts, and will be able to search the web more conveniently. Of course, in some cases LifeStyle New Tab will be installed without a user’s permission. If this has already happened to you, you can get rid of this software at any time. This is not a very difficult process but we still think that you should read through this article before you delete LifeStyle New Tab.
How does LifeStyle New Tab act?
First of all, LifeStyle New Tab is classified as a potentially unwanted program, or PUP because it changes homepages and search providers to search.ask.com. This modified ask.com version looks like a decent web page, so users usually do not even think about its removal. Of course, there are many people who want to see their preferred homepages and search engines, so they decide to get rid of LifeStyle New Tab. Actually, specialists working at anti-spyware-101.com recommend doing that too because the modified version of ask.com might provide you with sponsored links and third-party ads. Of course, it will provide you with normal search results too. Unfortunately, you will not be able to say which of these search results are trustworthy and which are not, so you might click on one of those sponsored links and ads one day. We cannot say where they will take you but we are sure that you might end up on some kind of unreliable website one day.
As you can see, even though LifeStyle New Tab promises to act in a very beneficial way, i.e. to help you stay up to date with latest lifestyle news, it is still not perfect software. We have already mentioned that it can expose you to malware, but it is not all it can do. Research has shown that the search engine which will be set after the installation of LifeStyle New Tab might record your search queries. On top of that, this software might have installed a bunch of unreliable applications alongside. In most cases, it comes bundled with adware and other potentially unwanted programs, but, of course, we cannot guarantee that it does not travel together with browser hijackers, and other threats. If you want to find out if the aforementioned threats have managed to enter your system, you should scan your PC with an antimalware scanner. Make sure that it is fully reliable.
