Pdf2DocPro is advertised as a free file conversion tool. Users are told that they could easily convert their files from PDF to DOC and vice versa. Also, users get a free translator as a bonus. Some users believe that this application can be useful, so they install it either from its official website http://www.pdf2docpro.com/ or directly from the Chrome Web Store consciously. At the time of research, it was not extremely popular software. There were only a total of 4695 users who downloaded it from the official Chrome Web Store. If you are among them, you should delete Pdf2DocPro. Of course, not all users installed Pdf2DocPro willingly on their computers. A bunch of users reported that Pdf2DocPro was installed on their systems without their knowledge. In such a case, the Pdf2DocPro must be removed as soon as possible as well. We can confirm that it is not dangerous malicious software, but it acts as a typical browser hijacker, i.e. it alters settings of users’ browsers. If your browser’s settings have been changed without your knowledge too and you have found them undesirable, we see no reason why you should keep Pdf2DocPro active on your system. You can find more about its removal in the last paragraph of this article, but it will not be hard to disable it, we promise.
We suspect that you have not found Pdf2DocPro very beneficial or do not even know about its entrance if you are reading this article. It is not surprising at all that so many users decide to remove this browser extension from their Google Chrome browsers because it is not as beneficial as it claims to be. As research has clearly shown, its main task is to set a new page as a Start page, homepage, and New Tab URL on users’ browsers. To be more specific, they see search.pdf2docpro.com each time they open their browsers after the successful installation of Pdf2DocPro. You will find quick-access buttons opening online file conversion services on this page. On top of that, you could access a translator with the click of a button. Some users find this quite useful, whereas those who installed Pdf2DocPro expecting more from it decide to remove it. It should be emphasized that all these third-party services can be accessed without the help of Pdf2DocPro, for example, you can bookmark their URLs to be able to open them quickly. Therefore, we cannot confirm that Pdf2DocPro is very useful. What else bothers us is that it could manage your apps, extensions, and themes, and, on top of that, read and change data on all websites you visit if you keep it installed. Of course, the final decision is yours.
Users can themselves install Pdf2DocPro from its official website of the official Chrome Web Store, as mentioned at the beginning of this report, but it seems that it might be distributed in a different way as well because not all the users can explain why this piece of software is listed next to other active extensions in the add-ons manager. Most probably, it is also spread bundled, specialists say. Browser hijackers often travel in software bundles, so it is not something new. Also, some users could have installed Pdf2DocPro by clicking on a pop-up advertisement promoting it. It should be noted that users can click on these ads accidentally. It is not an easy task to prevent untrustworthy software from entering the system, so we highly recommend keeping security software enabled. There are some extremely sneaky threats spreading through the web, so it is not very likely that you will protect your system against them without an antimalware tool.
Pdf2DocPro is considered a browser hijacker, but you should be able to delete it quite easily because it is installed as an ordinary browser extension and can be erased through the add-ons manager. If this does not tell you much, you are welcome to use the manual removal guide our specialists have prepared for you – find it below this report. All untrustworthy applications can be deleted from the system automatically as well. Make sure the automated antimalware scanner you use can be trusted 100%.
