What is Home.getpokedex.com?
As Pokémon Go is a very popular game these days, many users download third-party software that should help to play it. At first glance, the PokeDex Search extension promoting Home.getpokedex.com seems to be a useful piece of software, so there are some people who download the extension themselves and then notice the changes applied to their browsers. As you have probably understood, you will encounter Home.getpokedex.com. It will be set in the place of your homepage and the New Tab page, whereas your search engine will be changed to search.getpokedex.com. You will definitely see these changes if you use Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox browsers. To be frank, the PokeDex Search extension is not as useful as it claims to be. In addition, it will not allow you to set another search engine, homepage, and the New Tab page you prefer unless you get rid of it fully. Researchers at anti-spyware-101.com suggest doing that as soon as possible not only because it is the only way to change the browsers’ settings, but also because there is a small possibility that Home.getpokedex.com will expose you to potential threats if you use its search box to find the information on the web. Specialists know that this extension belongs to the SuperWeb family of software, and it is not that easy to eliminate them, which is why they have decided to help you erase it from the computer in this article.
What does Home.getpokedex.com do?
You will see the presence of Home.getpokedex.com every time you open your Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox browser because this web page will be set in the place of your homepage, and it will also be opened for you if you open a new browser tab. At first glance, Home.getpokedex.com might look like an ordinary search tool with quick access buttons on its start page and the search box. Also, there is a button at the top that opens the menu with Pokémon and their features. Users who install the extension just because it says to help users search for Pokémon get very disappointed when they notice that the only thing it can do is to open the list. Also, the majority of users do not even suspect that the settings of their browsers will be changed, so they find this annoying. To be frank, it is quite dangerous to use the search engine you will see immediately after you open your browser because, according to specialists, it redirects all the searches from search.getpokedex.com through feed.snowbitt.com to search.safefinder.com and only then shows Yahoo! search results. As all the searches are redirected to different websites several times, it is very likely that users will be, finally, provided with the sponsored search results. Speaking more specifically, there will be advertisements and all kinds of sponsored links placed on the search results page. As these ads remind users legitimate search results, they click on them fearlessly. Unfortunately, this means that they can end up on corrupted websites and thus cause harm to their computers. You know our opinion – we suggest getting rid of the PokeDex Search extension ASAP in order to be able to change the settings of browsers and thus reduce the risk of being exposed to malicious software.
Where does Home.getpokedex.com come from?
