Email Search Tools is a browser extension that provides links to popular email providers. If you are interested in it, you should know that the tool could view your browsing history, which might be something that you cannot tolerate if you think that browsing history ought to be private. Also, the application could change your browser preferences like your homepage to introduce you to a search engine that redirects to a modified Yahoo search engine. Consequently, it was classified as a potentially unwanted program. You can learn more about it if you read the rest of our report. However, if you already placed it on your browser, but now want to remove Email Search Tools, you could use our deletion instructions located below the text or pick a reliable antimalware tool that could eliminate the potentially unwanted program.
Email Search Tools does not seem to be compatible with other browsers besides Google Chrome. Users of this browser might find it on the Chrome Web Store page, where it is advertised as an application that provides “Quick access to top email providers.” At the moment of writing, there seem to be more than three hundred thousand users. Also, the extension was rated by six users so far and currently has three out of five starts. Besides the Chrome Web Store page, the extension might also be spread through unreliable file-sharing web pages and pop-up advertisements. Therefore, we advise against visiting questionable sites or interacting with untrustworthy advertisements if you are not entirely sure that content promoted or available through such sources will be reliable.
Before the extension is added, you might be asked to permit Email Search Tools to read and change your data on all hsearchescentral.com sites, change your search settings to: search.emailsearchtools.com, and read your browsing history. Additionally, the application may ask for cookies, storage, and “webRequestBlocking” permissions.
If you provide the potentially unwanted program with the mentioned permissions, it might be able to change your browser preferences, such as your homepage and default search engine, view your browsing history, store data on your device, use browser cookies, and so on. Consequently, both your default search engine and homepage might be set to search.emailsearchtools.com. According to the extension’s description, this search engine will help you find your email provider. It is vital to know that it might redirect you to a modified Yahoo search engine and that results displayed by it could differ from the results that you could receive while using the original search.yahoo.com.
Moreover, the application may provide links to different email providers. Understandably, such links could be useful, but you can bookmark links to email providers that you need, and by doing so, you could reach them just as fast as with search.emailsearchtools.com or the Email Search Tools provided links. Also, users ought to know that Email Search Tools could gather information and share it with third parties to help them bring users targeted ads.
If all things considered, Email Search Tools does not look as useful as it seemed before, and you wish to erase it, we can suggest a couple of ways to do it. First, users could delete the unwanted extension from their browsers’ extensions menus. Those who need any guidance should have a look at the instructions located below. For readers who find the process too complicated, we recommend performing a full system scan with a reliable antimalware tool that could eliminate Email Search Tools for you.
