If you have the Chrome browser and enjoy trying out various browser extensions, beware of the myGames Start extension, which offers quick access to over 1000 free games. This browser extension is available on the Chrome Web Store, where numerous browser apps are at your reach. Moreover, the myGames Start extension is promoted on the website, which contains some browser built-in applications, such as a calculator, and a few purportedly useful browser extensions. The myGames Start extension is very similar to the extension myTV Search Plus, which is also present on the two websites. The myGames Start extension may also be bundled with other application, meaning that you could install it accidentally without even realizing it. Malware researchers categorize this browser extension as a potentially unwanted program (PUP), which can be removed from the computer by powerful anti-malware programs.

According to the description of the extension, with this browser application, you can play board games, shooting games, and many others. To have all the features offered within reach, the myGames Start extension replaces the startup page with its page, containing links to popular social networking websites and online gaming websites. More specifically, links to specific games are displayed below the search box in the middle of the browser window to be noticed once the browser starts running.

You should bear in mind that you click on those links at your own responsibility. myGames Start only provides you with a chance to have better access to online entertainment, but does not take responsibility for the consequences that follow your interaction with gaming websites. Such websites are very often supported by advertising servers replacing advertisements with new ones on a regular basis. Such websites are also not responsible for the content of display, which sometimes may be inappropriate. Online advertisements are one of the methods of malware distribution, so you should not click on ads offering questionable services or products, because such offers might be aimed at deceiving you into revealing personally identifiable data or installing some program.

By using the search box provided by myGames Start and by interacting with the startup page, you enable myGames Start to collect information about your preferences. For example, you might find that the links to games are replaced with links to the games of your interest. Moreover, do not get surprised if you find commercial offers related to your other searchers that have nothing in common with online gaming.

PUPs are very often equipped with technologies to monitor users' online behavior, which is why such programs are removed from the computer shortly after having been installed.

To prevent unsolicited software installation, it is worth paying attention to a few factors. First, it is crucial to choose only reputable software sharing websites. Second, software developers seek to spread their programs as much as possible, so they bundle their programs with other free programs. Reading the information displayed by the installer is highly recommended so that you can choose what additional program will not be installed. It is also important to read reviews and check the rating of a selected program before downloading it. If you cannot find any testimonials aside from the official website, it is worth considering changing your preference.

Unwanted programs may also be installed without your knowledge and permission, and such stealthily installed programs are usually referred to as malware. Malicious programs  could be kept at bay by ensuring that the operating system and software are up-to-day. Needless to say, anti-malware should also be running on the PC; otherwise, the system remains susceptible to Internet threats of different complexity.

The myGames Start extension does not have qualities typical of malware, but it may cause some incontinence and inhibit smooth Internet browsing.
