Did you download CrypSearch thinking that it would somehow make your web browsing experience better? If that is what you hopped for, we are sad to inform that this extension cannot really do much for you. In fact, the experts in our research team recommend removing the extension because it appears to be capable of injecting suspicious ads into the search results that you see. This might not seem like a big deal at first, especially if you are used to seeing ads everywhere you go, but you need to think about the usefulness of everything that you download. If you end up realizing that the extension is neither useful nor trustworthy, there really is no point in keeping it around. There are plenty of legitimate and beneficial search tools to choose from, and we recommend choosing one that is 100% reliable. First, of course, you might want to delete CrypSearch.

According to our researchers, CodePerform GmbH is the company that represents CrypSearch. They set up a website (crypsearch.com) to promote the suspicious extension, but officially, it can only be installed from chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/crypsearch/jflbdgpbnmffamamiimbdgpfggddhcpc/. Of course, unofficially, you might find the launcher carried by bundled downloaders along with malware and potentially unwanted programs. CrypSearch is identified as a PUP as well. If you suspect that other threats might exist on your system, guess no more. Install a legitimate malware scanner, and it is will let you know if there are threats that you need to remove from your operating system. Needless to say, you should not ignore existing threats. Even if the extension itself is the only suspicious piece you are dealing with, you have things to figure out. Can the PUP be trusted? What kinds of risks would you face if you interacted with it? Should you perform the removal ASAP? The good news is that the answers to these questions are fairly straightforward.

It does not look like CrypSearch can be trusted, and that is because it modifies the search results that are shown to present advertisements. The Privacy Policy reveals that undisclosed third parties can use data-tracking technologies to collect information about your preferences and then use that information to present ads. Well, because the advertisers are not disclosed, it is hard to say whether or not they can be trusted. Quite possibly, they cannot. Therefore, we do not recommend using crypsearch.com/search.php carelessly or, in fact, at all. Note that this search tool replaces the default search provider and the new tab page on Google Chrome, and you cannot really escape this search tool unless you remove CrypSearch extension. The risks you could face if you continued interacting with the PUP include clicking on links that route to malicious or unreliable websites as well as having information about you collected by unknown parties for unknown reasons. For most people, these will be the reason they will want to delete the potentially unwanted program from their browsers.

The removal of CrypSearch does not need to be a complicated thing. Hopefully, other threats do not exist, and you can use the guide below to delete this potentially unwanted program yourself. If other threats exist, and if you are still mostly interested in manual removal, check out the guides that are available on our website. If you cannot find them, post a query in the comments section. We will point you in the right direction ASAP. Another option to consider is implementing anti-malware software. Install it and you will have CrypSearch deleted along with anything else that might require it. More importantly, the software can secure your operating system to prevent the attacks of serious infections as well as to stop you from downloading PUPs and other questionable pieces of software. In the future, we suggest researching extensions/applications before installing them to make sure that you install only legitimate and useful things.
