Two Click Search promises easier searching online, but fails to deliver as it is mostly useless. Still, it is promoted as the next best thing since sliced bread. We regard it as a potentially unwanted program because of the fact that it is almost useless and also because it can collect information about you for what seems to be advertising purposes as well due to the fact that its developers use deceptive distribution tactics to get it on your browser. You should consider removing it from your PC altogether, but before you do, you may want to find out more about it. Please read this whole article to find out more.

Two Click Search is a browser extension made for Google Chrome exclusively. Its only feature adds a button to the dropdown menu when you right-click highlighted text on a website. It allows you to use the highlighted text as a search term and you can select to enter this term in either Google.com or Wikipedia.com. Indeed, this is what this extension offers, and there is nothing more to it. However, there are some things that are taking place in the background.

We have received information that claims that this application can collect information about you and use it advertising purposes or share it with third-parties that might use it for advertising purposes. This program has no privacy policy, so it is difficult to tell what it can collect exactly, but we assume that it can obtain information such as your approximate geographical location, IP address, Internet Service Provider domain name, browser type, and operating system type, among other information. Our research suggests that this information can be used for advertising purposes such as displaying pop-up ads, banners, and so on. However, this extension did not show any ads while we tested it. Another possibility is that the collected information is shared with third-parties that make use of it in their own way. While the collected information is not personally identifiable, you may not want to share it with unknown parties.

Truth be told, Two Click Search itself comes from an unknown entity. It has a dedicated distribution website at Two-click-search.info, but it features no information about the company that developed and published it. Furthermore, it has no terms of service or privacy policy documents which only reinforce the assumption that its developers use it for questionable purposes. It is also featured on the Chrome Web Store which also does not provide any information on the developer. As if that was not enough, we have found that this application is also bundled with questionable freeware installers featured on shady software downloads hosting sites that include programs such as Two Click Search to make money. The installers can install it automatically, but we think that you should uncheck its installation.

We hope that you found the information on this potentially unwanted program useful. As you can see, it is not malicious per se, but it is evident that it is not entirely legitimate either. It is somewhat on the fence, but we do not recommend keeping it. To avoid trouble, we invite you to make use of the removal guide below and delete this extension from your browser.
