GoGameGo is a questionable browser extension that is similar to Muzik Fury and it only seems to affect Google Chrome browsers. We have classified this tool as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) since it does not seem to cause direct security issues. But it does not mean that there are no suspicious traits this extension shows. As a matter of fact, this tool changes your home page, new tab page, and default search engine to a modified search page that offers you quick links to online game-related sites as well as a search tool. However, this page has proved to be questionable to say the least. The content you may be introduced to through this PUP may put your system security at risk. Therefore, we suggest that you remove GoGameGo from your computer. If you want to know more about this infection, such as how it may bring malware threats onto your system and how you can protect your PC from similar attacks, please continue reading our report.
It is possible to directly install this extension through its official webpage at gogamego.thewhizproducts.com. However, we must mention that this is a tricky installation. When you click on the “Play Now/Click to Install” button and then you accept the permissions you need to grant to this tool to be able to install it, you suddenly find yourself on another page. There you see a flashing Install button in the middle that makes you feel like you have not installed this tool already, so you probably click again without reading the text on the page. But by doing so you will get redirected to a Chrome web store page to install MySearch DS-2, which is a questionable search engine tool. So if you are not careful enough, you may end up with more risky tools than you bargained for.
Unfortunately, there are more suspicious ways for this PUP to appear on your computer and these are actually the more likely ways too for it to enter your system. We have found two alternative routes for this tool, which can mean the presence of a couple of malware infections on board. First, this application can be found bundled with malware programs that may include adware applications, browser hijackers, and other PUPs as well. Such bundles are most commonly promoted on shady file-sharing websites. It is possible that you landed on a questionable torrent or freeware site and you clicked on a corrupt third-party banner or pop-up ad and that caused the bundle of infections to drop onto your system. But it is also possible that there was at least one adware program on your PC already and that displayed the corrupt ad that you clicked on and installed this tool. If you have no idea how this useless PUP ended up on your machine, we suggest that you run a full-system malware scan to find out about the infection situation right after you remove GoGameGo.
We have found that this tool is most popular in the following countries: India (21.4%), the United States (10.1%), and Pakistan (9.0%). When the tool is installed, it changes your Google Chrome browser settings, including your home page, new tab page, and default search engine to a modified search.mysearch.com page. This is an unreliable search engine that should not be trusted for a moment. It offers two main quick links at the top: “Game of the Day” and “Top Games.” There are additional options on the left side that lead to online games related sites, including “Our Picks,” “Most Popular,” and “Newest.” We have noticed that these links take you to potentially unreliable pages that host questionable games and lots of risky third-party ads. Clicking on these ads may redirect you to harmful websites.
But not only may these links and the easy access thumbnail links below the search box present risks to you and your computer. Unfortunately, you cannot even trust the search engine itself. Your search queries may end up on a manipulated search results page, which means that it may contain affiliated third-party ads and links. Clicking on these may also take you to unsafe and malicious websites. All in all, we do not recommend that you use this tool at all. You should delete GoGameGo from your browser if you do not want to be exposed to such unreliable web content.
The good news is that it is very easy to remove GoGameGo without leaving any leftovers. You just need to go to the settings of your browser and delete the extension. If you have never done this before, please use our instructions below. If you want to protect your computer from similar or more dangerous attacks, we advise you to keep all your drivers and programs updated. Furthermore, you should try to keep away from unreliable websites and clicking on commercials no matter how attractive their offer may look. However, if you are looking for constant and powerful protection, we recommend that you install a trustworthy anti-malware tool, such as SpyHunter.
