Edentulatecontrol does not appear to be malicious, but we noticed the application might be forced on users and so we decided it would be best to classify it as a potentially unwanted program. If you continue reading our article, we will explain to you how it might be distributed and how the extension may affect your browser. In the last paragraph we will also talk about the potentially unwanted programs deletion; thus, if you are here only because you are hoping to find a way to remove Edentulatecontrol from the computer manually, you should slide below the article and have a look at the provided deletion steps. Of course, if you prefer getting to know more about the tool before eliminating it we invite you to keep reading our report.
At some point, Edentulatecontrol was available on Chrome Web Store page from the following link: chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/edentulatecontrol/fdcjlcgpnmedldaomijaeniedmfeobfl, but at the moment of writing the link seems to be no longer valid. That is because it appears to be the extension was removed from Chrome Web Store page since we cannot find it anymore. It is quite possible the potentially unwanted program was evaluated as possibly dangerous and consequently got removed from the mentioned web page. Nonetheless, it is still being distributed via its official site or to be more precise through the following link: edentulatecontrol.com/bn.php.
At the beginning of the text, we said we have learned the application might be forced on users who may not even want to add it to their browsers. What we had in mind is the potentially unwanted program’s official website and the pop-up it shows. As you see, it is a blank white website displaying a pop-up window saying: “Add Extension to Leave.” Less experienced users could think they cannot exit the site if they do not add the plugin, although it is completely wrong because you can leave by closing the particular tab or the whole browser. We do not think it is the behavior of a legitimate application and so we cannot consider the extension as trustworthy.
Once added, the plugin could create a small icon on the top-right Google Chrome’s corner; at the moment of writing it is the only browser the potentially unwanted program seems to be compatible with. If you click this icon, the browser should open a small window with some game the user can play. However, our researchers say this might be not the only Edentulatecontrol’s function. Apparently, it is quite possible the software could gather some information about users browsing habits. If this is true, this type of data could be used to provide targeted advertising content and given the application is a potentially unwanted program, its displayed advertisements may not be reliable either since they could lead to possibly malicious web pages, scam sites, etc.
If you decide not to risk your computer safety and wish to get rid of Edentulatecontrol as soon as possible, we can offer you our recommended deletion steps located a bit below this text. They will explain to you how to erase data belonging to the extension manually. Another way to eliminate it would be to install a trustworthy antimalware tool of your choice and do a full system check-up. Afterward, all you have to do is click the deletion button, and the suspicious program should be removed along with other possible threats.
