Have you downloaded ArcadeApp Search hoping that it will offer various online games for free? Though the service is truly free, you should not expect this potentially unwanted program (PUP) to offer you a great variety of games. All games promoted via this tool can be found on cantstopplaying.com. Once the extension is installed, a button is added to the browser, and you can click it to open a search field that looks for games on cantstopplaying.com. Although you might find this useful, you must realize that the extension is created to promote this website and not serve you. That being said, this is not the reason we are recommending users to delete ArcadeApp Search. It was discovered by researching this this potentially unwanted program that it could redirect to a third-party search engine to show sponsored content without your permission. Without a doubt, that is a reason to remove the PUP from the browser immediately. At this moment, it is only compatible with Google Chrome, but if you need to erase it from a different browser, let us know via the comments section.
The suspicious ArcadeApp Search is offered by SuperAppBox, but the official installer is not represented via superappbox.com. At the moment, only installers for MusicApp Search and FilmsApp Search are available on this website. The official installer, however, is promoted via the Chrome web store, and you can find it at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/arcadeapp-search/eiocplpcecacffckmennjpibggdajmnf. If you install the PUP from this source, you are informed that it can read and even change the data found on the websites you visit, as well as display notifications. If that was not enough, it is suggested that the PUP can also change search settings to play.eanswers.com. In reality, the PUP redirects to search.yahoo.com via this server, and the results that are shown at the end are modified. Should you be worried about this? You certainly should because the links added to normal search results could promote unreliable parties. Unfortunately, ArcadeApp Search uses Yahoo Search to trick users into not realizing what is happening. There is nothing wrong with the Yahoo search engine, but only if it is not affected by something else, like a redirector.
