Get Search Plus is on the Chrome Web Store page and according to this platform’s statistics it has over one hundred thousand users. Its rating is currently 3.7 and it has only two reviews. Also, we ought to mention that one of the reviews is positive and one of it is negative. Plus, the negative comment has replies of other users, which do not appear to be positive either.

Thus, it is likely that users download this plugin from somewhere else. For instance, they could get it from the application’s official website called hsearchplus.co. Not to mention, it could be spread like other potentially unwanted programs, for example, via file-sharing websites, pop-up ads, or redirects.

Users who install Get Search Plus might notice that their homepage, default search engine, and new tab page were replaced with a search tool called hp.hsearchplus.co.

Even though your search results could be displayed by Yahoo, some of the content like advertisements might be placed by Get Search Plus or third parties. Also, it is possible that the plugin could display advertising on its search website as the application’s Privacy Policy says: “We partner with advertisers and advertising networks to place ads on and through our Services.”

Moreover, you may want to know that the ads that this potentially unwanted program or third parties might display could be targeted. It appears, the application may gather information about your browsing and share it with third parties.
