Promises to enhance your search experience can make you think that AllConvertersSearches is a beneficial and desirable tool. Unfortunately, this Google Chrome extension is certainly not all that useful. In fact, we recommend removing it because we believe it to be useless and also kind of risky to deal with. Our team has thoroughly inspected this potentially unwanted program (PUP), but that was not completely necessary given that it is identical to SearchTheConverter, PDFSearchio, SearchConverters, StreamBrosSearch, and many other extensions alike. At this time, we do not know how many clones exist already, but we are likely to see many more to emerge in the future. The mere fact that multiple clones exist tells us that these extensions are not meant to be useful. If that were the case, one single extension would be perfected and offered. Instead, multiple clones are unleashed, most likely, to maximize the advertising potential, and that is one of the reasons to delete AllConvertersSearches.
AllConvertersSearches could be introduced to you via bundled downloaders, and it could be attached to other PUPs or even malware. You also could face misleading ads and pop-ups that are meant to redirect you to chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/allconverterssearches/pljanbofkpnfkkpgpfhmbadcdfeepnja. This Chrome Web Store installer paints a pretty picture, and you are meant to believe that the extension is somehow beneficial. Well, it is not. When you install it, it immediately places tracking tools to collect information about you, and then it uses that information to display sponsored third-party links. They are displayed via search.yahoo.com, to which feed.allconverterssearches.com redirects. This search tool becomes the default search provider after the installation of the PUP. Can you change the settings to set a desired search provider instead? You cannot do that, and you need to remove AllConvertersSearches if you want to change the provider. Luckily, that is not a bad tradeoff.
Although you might have been convinced that you would be able to browse the web efficiently using AllConvertersSearches, in reality, this extension is not that useful. It redirects to Yahoo Search to create an illusion that it works or to stay silent completely. However, if you interact with the results that are presented to you, you might end up interacting with ads. That is what AllConvertersSearches is most likely to inject when modifying the results. Can you avoid the ads? Perhaps you can spot them, but why would you want to tiptoe around your search tool? Delete it and replace the unwanted default search provider with Yahoo Search or another trustworthy search tool, and enjoy the results you see without the fear of clicking the wrong thing. Do NOT interact with search results carelessly when you are redirected by suspicious search tools, even if they redirect to well-known, trusted engines. In fact, this is our top reason to delete the PUP. Another reason to do that is so that its creator and the associated parties – who are unknown – would stop spying on you and collecting information about your browsing activities.
Our removal guide below will surely help you get rid of AllConvertersSearches manually. It will help you to erase data-tracking web cookies and clear other browsing-related data too. Although all Chrome users should be able to eliminate the PUP on their own, we strongly recommend considering one other method of removal. Have you thought about getting AllConvertersSearches removed automatically? We strongly recommend installing anti-malware software if you are having issues erasing the PUP, if other threats have been discovered, and, most importantly, if you care about your security in the future. Of course, you can try protecting yourself and your system manually, but note that there are far worse things than PUPs, and if you do not feel skilled enough to defend your system against all threats, you ought to implement anti-malware software that is built to clean and protect automatically.
