Before adding Cancel Tabs Closing onto your browser, you should carefully consider if you need such a tool. The add-on falls under the classification of potentially unwanted programs as our researchers report it could have undesirable qualities, for example, display targeted advertisements. No doubt such content can be both irritating and potentially dangerous if there is not knowing where it could originate from and lead the user to. More details will be provided further in the text; thus, if you encountered Cancel Tabs Closing or even placed it on your browser without learning more about the application first, we would advise you to do this now. What’s more, our researchers have prepared deletion instructions you may want to have a look at if you have no idea how to get rid of this potentially unwanted program.
First of all, it is important to know how these suspicious applications can be distributed. Despite the fact Cancel Tabs Closing is currently available on Chrome Web Store page and its official website called canceltabsclosing.info, there is a chance it might also travel with bundled setup files or malicious pop-up ads. Therefore, if you did not find it on Chrome Web Store page or its official website and did not understand how it ended up on your browsing application, you could have accidentally added it while using bundled installers or clicking suspicious pop-up ads. Next time, it would be wise to learn more before accepting any new tools suggested via ads or to select custom installation settings so you could have an opportunity to deselect additional bundled suggestions.
According to our specialists, after the extension is added, it should place a button as its description says and it works in the described way too. At this point, we should also explain Cancel Tabs Closing is compatible only with Google Chrome and this browser provides features for restoring closed tabs of its own. What we are trying to see is that while the potentially unwanted program’s displayed button may allow to re-open closed tabs with fewer clicks or to be exact just one click less, it is doubtful it will make a huge difference to the user’s browsing.
Furthermore, you may want this tool less after you learn it could gather information about your browsing habits, share it with its third-party associates, and then display tailored advertisements as you surf the Internet. We learned about this after reading the extension’s End User License Agreement statements. It would seem no one takes any responsibility for content displayed by Cancel Tabs Closing. It means if one of the targeted advertisements appears to be leading to sites distributing Trojans, viruses, other malware, or some other dangerous content the user will be alone to blame.
Under such circumstances, we believe the potentially unwanted program could both disturb user’s browsing and endanger his system, and so we do not think it to be wise to leave the application be. If you think the same, we offer you our recommended deletion steps available below the text; with them, you can access your browser’s settings and erase the plugin at once. Afterward, our researchers believe it would be safer to scan the system with a reliable antimalware tool too to make sure there are no other possible threats.
