What is may be a new browser extension but it is more like a new member in a large family of questionable applications created by RCPmedia. This family has 47 members for the time being, including and We cannot say anything bad about these extension because they seem to work just fine. However, our malware specialists at say that you should still be careful with this extension because it may show suspicious traits even if it does not necessarily expose you to manipulated search results containing potentially risky third-party advertisements. Thus, this application has been labeled as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) though it may also be considered a browser hijacker since it can actually change your browser settings so that it come up as your homepage and new tab page. The innocent surface hides questionable behavior though; you may be redirected to potentially unreliable third-party websites or presented with questionable third-party ads while this PUP is actively present in your browsers. We recommend that you remove if you want to keep your system clean.test

Where does come from?

You can find the list of 47 PUPs on the official page of the authors, Here you can access all their products but not download them. In order to be able to download and install this browser hijacker you need to directly visit the Chrome web store page at or click on the "App" link at the bottom of the page on, which will redirect you to the web store, too. Somehow though this PUP does not seem to be too popular, i.e., it is not really widely downloaded through these official channels. The reason is simple: There are alternative ways to spread this extension. And, when "alternative" comes up in this context, it usually means something deceptive like freeware bundles. This fact alone should be enough to delete and let us tell you why.

A freeware bundle may not only contain PUPs but also, malicious programs like adware apps, browser hijackers, keyloggers, backdoors, and fake alerts. Of course, when you download a legitimate free program off of an official website, you should not be presented with an infectious package. But the truth is, you can never really be sure. That is why you need to make sure you are aware of the whole content before pressing the "Install" button. First, you need to carefully read the license agreement, which can reveal what other additional programs will be installed or what kind of browser setting changes you may expect. Second, you always need to select the custom option at the beginning -- if there is such a choice -- and read all the installation screens with caution to notice the notifications about browser setting changes and additional programs to be installed. This is how you can opt out. If you fail to do so, you may infect your computer with all kinds of threats just like it may have happened in this case. This is why we suggest that after you delete, you scan your PC with a decent malware scanner to see what you are still up against.

How does work?

It is quite likely that you would see the change in your browsers when this PUP appears since it looks quite a bit different from other search engine pages. The main difference is the large panel below the main search box, which contains dozens of small thumbnails of popular websites like Facebook, Wikipedia, LinkedIn, and Reddit. Below this panel, you can find a third-party ad that should not be trusted because you can never now if it is a reliable third party or not. Clicking on unreliable ads could end badly for you, for example, you may download malicious programs in the background or even get redirected on new tabs to malicious websites where cyber crooks could be waiting to scam you.

We have found that this PUP can gather data about your online activities and sell this to third parties. Again, the problem is that you can never know whether these third parties are to be trusted or not. What if cyber criminals pose as affiliates? What if they can use this PUP to show you corrupt ads to lure you to their malicious pages? Anyone can be scammed easily when landing on a fake website like a webshop where you may share your banking details only to find out later that your bank account has been drained. This browser extension uses as the search engine to show you search results. We did not find proof that these search results would be manipulated or potentially risky. Still, we believe that you should remove from your computer to keep it safe.
