Research conducted by specialists at has clearly shown that this browser extension is nothing more than a browser hijacker, so it might be spread bundled together with other applications and thus enter users’ PCs unnoticed. As for those users who install Inspiratiooo consciously, they do that expecting that it is extremely beneficial software. We cannot blame those users because it does look useful at first glance. It is even advertised as a “new Chrome extension for beautiful browsing and search experience.” At the time of writing, it was not popular yet, but its popularity might increase, so we have prepared this report to let users know what they can expect from this application. Continue reading to find more about it and its removal.

The Inspiratiooo browser extension is presented as beneficial software that not only changes background every 6 hours, enables users to check the “temperature in your location,” but can also improve the web searching experience to a great extent. Unfortunately, in reality, it is not something very useful. Research has shown that it only alters users’ Google Chrome settings. To be more specific, it sets on users’ browsers. Since it changes both homepages and default search tools, users see this page open to them when they launch their web browsers. This page is not malicious, but you should remove it if you feel that it has been set without your knowledge. Our specialists do not recommend using the search tool promoted by Inspiratiooo as well (it is located in the middle of It has been noticed that it redirects all users’ searches through to Yahoo!, which is considered a legitimate search provider, but there is still a possibility that some modified search results will be displayed to users if they use it.

Yes, we believe that the browser extension promoting this page might enter users’ computers without their permission as well. Some people download Inspiratiooo directly from the Chrome Web store themselves willingly, as has already been mentioned at the beginning of this report, but many people do not know anything about its installation, so our specialists have carried out research to find out more about its distribution. Research has shown that it might be spread bundled with other applications. Also, it might be promoted via pop-ups displayed to users when they enter dubious websites. If you see various commercial advertisements periodically, this might be a sign that adware (an ad-supported program) is installed on your computer. If you manage to locate it, erase it right away together with this undesirable browser extension.

You can remove Inspiratiooo and thus get rid of the page it has set quite easily – you just need to access the extensions manager. Alternatively, you can reset your web browser to default settings. If you do not have time for the manual removal of undesirable software, we suggest that you use an automated scanner to clean your system. There is only one criterion for an antimalware tool – it must be fully reliable.
