Are you careful when installing new extensions? Do you pay attention? If you are and you do, you might realize that AnyStationSearch is quite suspicious right away. First of all, it does not promise anything great. It might introduce itself as a superior search tool, but if you know how your browser works, you should know that there is no need for extensions if you want an efficient search experience. All you need is an effective and trustworthy search tool. The creator of the PUP (potentially unwanted program) knows that, and perhaps that is the reason why Yahoo Search is involved. If you continue to keep this strange extension around only because it redirects to search.yahoo.com, we can guarantee you that it is not worth your time. If you are prepared to delete AnyStationSearch, waste no time. If you wish to learn more about the extension before the removal, keep reading our report.

AnyStationSearch did not have an official downloader/installer at the time of our research. It is a replica of TheConverterSearch, AllConvertersSearches, PDFSearchio, and other well-known PUPs. We are well familiar with them, and so we expected the PUP to be represented via the Chrome Web Store just like its clones. However, that is not the case. An official download page does not exist either. Some users might be familiar with portal.anystationsearch.com (a search engine that offers a free PDF converter), but it does not offer an installer for the extension. Basically, at this point, we can only guess how the PUP might have been installed on your computer. If you have no idea how that might have happened, you should not hesitate to remove this extension immediately. However, even if you believe that you know enough about this tool, there are reasons to consider its removal. If you got the chance to learn about it before installing it, perhaps you already know that it records your browsing activity. Is that a reason to delete the PUP? It might be.

If you think that AnyStationSearch records your browsing history to help you, you need to take a closer look at this extension. It poses as a free search tool; however, nothing is free in this world, so it seems. In fact, it is not even clear if the creator of the PUP is supporting the free service by injecting ads into normal Yahoo Search results. It is more likely that the PUP was created for the sole purpose of introducing its users to ads and third-party links. Do you think that the creator of AnyStationSearch is more likely to work with legitimate or unreliable parties? Of course, we all hope that the former is the case. However, no one knows that. Judging by the Privacy Policy at anystationsearch.com/privacy.html, the PUP records information and then shares it with third parties, which makes it seem that the extension was created to aid the unknown third parties. In conclusion, the extension does not seem very trustworthy, and since it truly is not useful, we advise deleting it.

Once you decide what it is that you want to do with AnyStationSearch, all you have to do is take action. Do you want to keep using this tool? If you do, perhaps you should review what cookies are set in place to record information. Paying close attention to the content you face when browsing the web is non-negotiable. You also might want to scan your system to make sure that the PUP was not installed with something that requires removal. If you choose to remove AnyStationSearch, you want to scan your system as well. Hopefully, nothing malicious is found, but remember that you can always utilize anti-malware software to have threats erased automatically. We suggest installing this software as soon as possible because PUPs are child’s play. Ransomware, trojans, worms, and other kinds of malicious threats, on the other hand, can be extremely damaging and also incredibly hard to recover from. Due to this, you want to take the preventative route of securing your system against attacks before they occur.
