Zip4NewTab Chrome Extension is promoted as powerful file compression software. It seems that some users believe that it can enable them to compress and unzip files with the single click because there are people who click the Free Download button located on its official website (http://ziplp.4newtab.com/) and install it willingly on their Google Chrome browsers. Some of them find the program beneficial, whereas others do not like these changes it applies to browsers and thus decide to replace it with another program. If you are reading this article because you do not know whether you should keep this piece of software active on your computer or not, you should know that this Google Chrome extension is not fully trustworthy software even though it claims that it is a “powerful tool for unzipping Zip archives, creating Zip-compatible files and other archiving software.” Specialists at 411-spyware.com say that it should be called a potentially unwanted program due to some activities it performs. Read the next paragraph carefully to find more about this browser extension and then decide whether to leave it installed or delete it.

The biggest drawback of Zip4NewTab Chrome Extension is that it changes Google Chrome settings the second users’ install it. The majority of people find out that this piece of software is capable of setting a new page as a homepage only after they install it. To be frank, setting http://www.4newtab.com/zip on users’ browsers is all this extension does. This page looks like a decent search tool. It even contains quick-access buttons (Extract a zip file and Create a zip file) that allow users to access online file conversion tools with the click of a button, but our specialists still do not think that users should keep it set on their browsers because, according to them, the chances are high that this search tool will present them with third-party links if they use it to perform web searches. Speaking specifically, it might display the modified Yahoo search results to users. Unfortunately, we cannot promise that these links will open only trustworthy pages, so it would be best not to click on any of them. You will not encounter any of them if you stop using the search tool set by Zip4NewTab Chrome Extension. You should not keep this page set on your Google Chrome browser also if you do not want it to record information about you because, as its Privacy Policy document has revealed, it is going to track users and collect some details about them automatically.

http://ziplp.4newtab.com/ is the official website of Zip4NewTab Chrome Extension, but our malware researchers suspect that not all users install it from this website. According to them, it is very likely that this Google Chrome extension is distributed in software bundles just like other potentially unwanted programs analyzed previously. These bundles usually contain several programs, and this explains why users do not notice when Zip4NewTab Chrome Extension is installed on their computers. By installing this extension, they allow it to change data on all websites they visit and set a new page on their browsers. These are not malicious activities; however, if you do nothing to ensure your system’s maximum protection but still keep downloading tons of free applications from all kinds of pages, you might encounter a much more harmful infection one day. We want to help you to protect your system, so we highly recommend installing security software. As long as it stays active, malicious software could not slither onto your computer and cause problems to you.
