BitcoinPriceSearch Extension is a new browser add-on that has been released by the infamous company Mindspark Interactive Network, Inc. It is presented as useful software for learning about cryptocurrency and bitcoin. Since digital currency is a hot topic nowadays, we are not surprised at all that there are people who consciously download and install BitcoinPriceSearch Extension from the Chrome Web Store. At the time of writing, there are 1 242 users who downloaded this piece of software directly from the official Chrome Web Store, but we are sure that the total number of people who have it installed is considerably higher because it can also be downloaded from its official website http://www.bitcoinpricesearch.com/index.jhtml. No matter where you get this extension from, it will change your browsers’ settings. It is compatible with all popular browsers, including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome, so you might find new settings applied to all these web browsers. If BitcoinPriceSearch Extension is installed on your computer without your direct permission, we are sure you will not be very happy about the changes you find applied. Luckily, these modifications can be undone by deleting BitcoinPriceSearch Extension fully.
If you have installed BitcoinPriceSearch Extension consciously, you have probably done that expecting that you could get more information about cryptocurrency with the single click of a button. The extension sets a page with a toolbar containing easy-access buttons, but it does not mean that all these promoted websites cannot be accessed without it installed on the computer. All promoted websites can be reached by typing their URLs in the URL bar , so if you have been planning to keep the extension installed just because of that, we can assure you that you do not need to do this. You can bookmark all your websites for quick access. In other words, we do not consider BitcoinPriceSearch Extension very useful software. If you still decide to keep it, make sure you perform web searches using the search tool it promotes cautiously because it has turned out that it might provide users with the modified search results. Last but not least, BitcoinPriceSearch Extension will automatically collect information about you as long as it stays installed. Luckily, browser extensions do not have access to sensitive information. They automatically collect various details that cannot tell much about users instead.
Even though BitcoinPriceSearch Extension can be downloaded directly from two sources, i.e. its official website and the Chrome Web store, it does not mean that it cannot find another way to get onto users’ computers. According to researchers at 411-spyware.com, it is very likely that it can also be installed with the single click from advertisements that promote it. Additionally, they say that this piece of software should also be distributed like other potentially unwanted applications available on the market – via software bundles. If one potentially unwanted application has been installed on your computer without your knowledge, there are no guarantees that this will not happen again, so you should keep security software enabled on your computer.
We have prepared the manual removal guide (find it below) for those who decide to remove BitcoinPriceSearch Extension from their computers and remove the promoted page from the default homepage and New Tab place. You will delete it normally, i.e. through Control Panel if you use Internet Explorer, but it does not mean that the extension cannot be removed from Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome browsers – you will remove it from these browsers through the add-ons manager.
