If you are interested in Bitcoins and cryptocurrency mining, you might come across an application called Crypto Hub. It is a browser extension that works on Google Chrome. Users should also know that it falls under the classification of potentially unwanted programs because it could have undesirable qualities. If you want to know what functionality that this extension provides could seem annoying and other details about it, we recommend reading our full report. We also talk about how users who regret installing this plugin can erase it. If you are only interested in our deletion instructions that explain how to remove Crypto Hub manually, we advise sliding below the article where you should find our guide for manual deletion.
Crypto Hub has an official website called cryptohubnt.aztproducts.com, which is one of the places where users can find this potentially unwanted program. At the moment of writing, it is also on the Chrome Web Store page. We do not believe that the mentioned websites are the only places from which users might be able to download this plugin. Usually, potentially unwanted programs are distributed in several ways. For example, it could also be bundled with similar applications that might be offered on file-sharing websites. Also, the extension could be promoted on pop-ups and ads. In any case, if you want to avoid such applications in the future, we advise reading more than a tool’s description. We mean to say that it is vital to learn if it was created by reputable developers and other crucial details that you will not find on an application’s description. For example, it is unlikely that a potentially unwanted program’s website will mention that it falls under such a category.
What happens if you install Crypto Hub on your Google Chrome? The application could replace your homepage or new tab page with a website that belongs to the potentially unwanted program. Such functionality might be undesirable if users do not like it when programs change your browser preferences. Also, users might not like that the application’s website contains a search box that redirects to blpsearch.com/search. Our specialists say that this website might further redirect users to a modified version of the Yahoo search engine. A modified version means that the potentially unwanted program might add more advertising content among search results. In other words, the search results from a modified Yahoo could contain ads from Crypto Hub third-party partners. Interacting with content from unknown sources is risky as you cannot be sure that it can be trusted. If you do not want to risk seeing unreliable third-party ads while searching the Internet with blpsearch.com/search, you could erase the potentially unwanted program. If you like the links that it provides, you could bookmark them so you would still have quick access to them.
If you feel up to the task, you could erase Crypto Hub manually. No need to worry if you do not know how to do this as the instructions located below the article can guide you through the process. The other way to delete Crypto Hub is to scan your device with a reliable antimalware tool. After the scanning is done, you should be able to remove all detected items, including the potentially unwanted program, at the same time.
