Are you looking for a tool that would make your searches more efficient? GetSearchConverter might sound like a tool that offers just that, but our researchers warn that it is not. Instead, it is just another PUP (potentially unwanted program) that was created for Google Chrome users to access their browsing data and to expose them to sponsored content that belongs to unknown third parties. Are you interested in such services? We are sure that you are not, and perhaps that is why you are reading this report. If you continue reading, you will learn not only how to delete GetSearchConverter but also GameSearchMedia, TopSportsSearch, IncognitoSearchPro, and other identical PUPs. Although they are unique threats that are researched separately, we have discovered that they are identical, and so the same removal methods can be applied to eliminate them.

Did you download GetSearchConverter from getsearchconverter.com, the Chrome Web Store (can be found at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/getsearchconverter/jfpaaailcogmdhdpblnkdhjgnhlkkmnk), or a third-party website that offered the PUP’s installer along with other installers? In any case, if you have downloaded the PUP, we suggest that you inspect your operating system. You can click the Download button below, and a trusted malware scanner will be downloaded. Install the tool and let it scan your system thoroughly. Ideally, no other threats will be found, but if they are, please make sure that every single one is removed fully and completely. Note that not all threats are obvious, and some of them can look completely harmless. After all, who would download GetSearchConverter if they knew right away that it was a PUP capable of collecting and sharing personal data? You can learn more about this by reviewing the Privacy Policy at getsearchconverter.com/privacy.html. We often overlook privacy policies, but they are important to pay attention to because they can offer essential information.

When it comes down to it, the reasons for deleting GetSearchConverter are pretty basic. First of all, this potentially unwanted program does not offer a useful service. Once you install it, it replaces the normal search provider with feed.getsearchconverter.com, and it is used to redirect searches to search.yahoo.com. Unfortunately, the results represented via this page cannot be trusted because the PUP modifies them. It injects sponsored links from third parties, and since the Privacy Policy does not disclose them, we cannot recommend trusting them either. What if these parties are unreliable advertisers, who are using the platform provided by the PUP to introduce you to scams? Although we cannot claim that that is exactly the case, we also cannot claim otherwise. Even if the tool offered useful search results, could you trust it? We do not think that you could, given that it spies on users and shares data about them with other parties.

As it should be evident by now, we recommend removing GetSearchConverter. Are you worried that you cannot eliminate this potentially unwanted program manually? We have no worries about this because the PUP works like tons of others, and we know that you can eliminate it by deleting the right extension. You also want to clear browsing data for the time that this extension was active, and the guide below explains how to do that too. What if other threats exist? That could be the case, and in that situation, we strongly advise using the help of anti-malware software. It can automatically delete threats that are active, and it can also secure the system to protect it in the future. Do you want our advice on anything else?
