What is PlusNetwork.com?
A potentially unwanted program, or PUP, is the kind of program that does not fulfill its promises. The suspicious search tool PlusNetwork.com is the reason we identify Video Search Tools Plus as a potentially unwanted program as well. Although this Chrome add-on should enhance your browsing experience by showing more video search results, it is not very beneficial, and it can install a suspicious search tool that we do not recommend trusting. This search tool can spy on you, record your browsing history, and inject advertisements. These are the main reasons we recommend deleting PlusNetwork.com and the suspicious browser extension associated with it. Luckily, one step is all that it takes to get rid of this undesirable software.
How does PlusNetwork.com work?
PlusNetwork.com is a suspicious search tool, and most users are surprised to see it installed on their Google Chrome browsers. The problem is that when installing Video Search Tools Plus from Chrome Web Store or its official website, videosearchtoolsplus.com/lp/, you will agree to change your search provider settings to videosearchtoolplus.com. Needless to say, this is not a search tool, and it is will not replace your regular search tools. Instead, your homepage, new tab, and default search engine will be replaced with PlusNetwork.com. Anti-Spyware-101.com researchers have tested this search tool, and we have found a few reasons why trusting it is a bad idea. First of all, this search tool showcases sponsored ads that could be used to introduce you to bogus services and the installers or unreliable programs. We certainly do not want you installing unreliable software because it might turn out malicious and dangerous.
