What is Emailtabsearch.com?
The MyEmailTab is a Google Chrome extension that promotes a questionable search tool Emailtabsearch.com instead of acting beneficially, i.e. enabling users to access their email accounts within seconds. The extension itself is released quite recently, but it is already rather popular. We know why it is so. Our researchers have managed to find out that this MyEmailTab extension can be downloaded from two different sources officially: 1) its official website lp.myemailtab.com and 2) the Chrome Web Store (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/music/icnggmipgkebapoemlnmgbiccecglnme?utm_source=chrome-app-launcher-info-dialog). Also, it is also capable of sneaking onto the computer rather secretly. Either way, make sure you do not let the MyEmailTab extension stay on your PC if you do not wish to use Emailtabsearch.com every day. To be honest, it would be a wise decision not to keep it because it is definitely not the most trustworthy search tool. Its removal will not be hard, but we want that you find out why you should remove it from your Google Chrome browser first before we show you how to make it gone forever.
What does Emailtabsearch.com do?
Once the MyEmailTab extension is installed on the computer, a new folder, e.g. icnggmipgkebapoemlnmgbiccecglnme is immediately created in %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Extensions. If you see it, it means that a browser extension is installed on your computer. Of course, other symptoms will tell you that too. As you already know, the installation of the MyEmailTab extension means that your default search engine and the New Tab change will be replaced by Emailtabsearch.com. At first glance, Emailtabsearch.com might look like a perfectly decent search tool; however, in reality, it has several serious drawbacks. First of all, specialists did not need much time to find out that Emailtabsearch.com shows the modified search results. In other words, it displays advertisements for users to improve the traffic rate of third-party websites. Of course, it does not do that free of charge. Even though the developer Emailtabsearch.com earns money by advertising other web pages, it will definitely not share it with you. The only thing you can get out of this is a bunch of malicious software. Yes, you might infect your PC with malware if you decide to use Emailtabsearch.com as your default search engine because it might take you to bad web pages too. Of course, you will not find a label saying that the website is untrustworthy there.
Where does Emailtabsearch.com come from?
We can assure you that you see Emailtabsearch.com in the place of your search engine just because you have MyEmailTab added to your browser. As we have mentioned in the 1st paragraph, you might have downloaded it from its official website or the Chrome Web Store. If you do not remember doing that, there is a huge possibility that it has found an illegal way to sneak onto your computer, for example, it could have entered your system in a software bundle, or you could have installed it on your PC by clicking on some kind of pop-up advertisement. The MyEmailTab extension is definitely not the only browser extension that promotes a questionable search engine, so you need to be really careful. We know that it might sometimes be very hard to prevent undesirable software from entering the system, so the best would be to install reputable security software. As long as you keep it there, malware will not have an opportunity to enter your computer.
