Where does WorldSport New Tab come from?
This application brings some confusion that we will try to sort out. WorldSport New Tab has allegedly been developed by APN, LLC. This developer has quite a few releases under its belt. However, most cyber security analysts deem most of its products as potentially unwanted programs. This program’s website also states that it is distributed by InMind, Inc. This company is in the online advertising business. However, it seems that these two companies are closely associated with Mindspark Interactive Network, which is known for its bad browser toolbars. So in actuality, this application is most likely developed by this company.
Regardless, WorldSport New Tab is disseminated using its dedicated website Lp.inmind-wsports.com, but, as far as we know, most people get it by downloading software bundles from websites such as Software.informer.com, because this particular distributor is known to host applications of APN, LLC. So, if you do not want to get WorldSport New Tab or similar undesirable applications, then make sure to opt out their installation.
What does WorldSport New Tab do?
This browser extension is Chrome-exclusive, meaning that it will not work on other browsers, such as Firefox and Internet Explorer. Its stated purpose is to provide soccer fans with news and whatnot. But it seems to promote only a few websites; one is called Nonissue.com and the other Sportstreams.tv. Nonissue is a news portal and Sportstreams displays information about upcoming sports events and matches. Once installed, this extension changes the homepage and new tab page to a modified version of Ask.com, which is typical for Mindspark-based software.
We do not recommend that you use this modified search engine, because it is allegedly owned by APN, LLC, the unreliable software developer. This company most likely uses this custom search engine to collect information about you and present customized search results with suggested partner websites that may be unreliable. The information this search engine collects automatically includes IP addresses, time zone and language settings, The URL of the last webpage visited before visiting the Website, search queries, search results selected, and so on.
