You need to know that your search engine and the New Tab page will be replaced by Gamestabsearch.com if you ever install the MyGamesTab extension. Some users install this piece of software willingly because it promises to enable users to access a collection of “free, fun and exciting games,” whereas others add this extension to their Google Chrome browser unintentionally. This extension is not dangerous itself, but you will have to remove it to get rid of Gamestabsearch.com. Some users decide to leave this search tool in the place of the default search engine; however, security specialists working at 411-spyware.com do not think that it is a very good idea. They will explain to you why Gamestabsearch.com cannot be called a reliable search engine. Also, you will find out how to delete this questionable search engine from your Google Chrome browser. Yes, fortunately, it will set itself on this browser only.

Gamestabsearch.com only looks like a reliable search tool. According to our researchers, in reality, this search tool might even expose users to potential threats. It might do that quickly. It has been found that this search tool displays the modified search results for users even though it is powered by Yahoo!. These modified search results are simple advertisements and sponsored links. They appear on the search results page to promote third-party web pages or websites that belong to partners of UPSIDE INNOVATIONS INC (nupside.com). There is a possibility that untrustworthy web pages will be promoted too, so users need to be careful. We would suggest ignoring the modified search results; however, it is not a very good advice because it might be impossible to recognize those modified search results since they often do not differ from ordinary search results, and they are blended with these ordinary search results in most cases. Therefore, in the opinion of 411-spyware.com researchers, you should remove Gamestabsearch.com quickly from your computer. Once you have erased it, you could then set another more trustworthy search tool. There are many tools to choose from, but you need to know that not all of them can be trusted even though they look harmless.

Specialists do not trust Gamestabsearch.com not only because it shows the modified search results. It did not take long for them to find out that this search tool is interested in the information about users and their devices as well. They have paid a visit to the Privacy Policy document available on its official website and found that Gamestabsearch.com gathers technical (e.g. third-party software installed on the device) and usage information (e.g. the websites users open, the content they see, advertisements and offers they click ok, etc) mainly. This information might be sent to other third-party companies too and shared with partners. Even though these types of information seem not to include any personal details, third parties might still find out something personal about you from the gathered data. If you wish to feel safe, you need to eliminate Gamestabsearch.com from the place of your default search engine and the New Tab page as soon as possible.

As you already know, you see the presence of Gamestabsearch.com because you have installed the extension MyGamesTab. It is available for download at lp.mygamestab.com and the Chrome Web Store (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/games/npcphogbhjnabbfopangpfiooacedgpg?utm_source=chrome-app-launcher-info-dialog). Also, it is known to be able to enter computers without permission. In most cases, it travels in software bundles, but there are cases when users noticed its presence after clicking on a pop-up advertisement. These pop-up ads offering to install an application are usually shown by adware. If you have seen such an advertisement and clicked on it too, you should scan your PC with the diagnostic scanner because it means that you might have an ad-supported program installed. It is a must to remove it!

Fortunately, Gamestabsearch.com will disappear after you delete the extension from Google Chrome. At first, it might seem to be a difficult job to do; however, we are sure that you will still manage to get rid of it yourself. If you need help with that, use our manual removal guide. If this does not help you much either, scan your PC with an automatic malware remover like SpyHunter. Automatic scanners will delete other infections from your PC too, so you can consider adware gone if it was really hiding on your computer.
