In this report, we discuss a browser extension offered for Google Chrome users that is called My Flight Finder Tab. The first thing that we ought to mention about this application is that it falls under the classification of potentially unwanted programs or PUPs in short. Even though it is not a category for malicious applications, tools that appear in it should not be trusted entirely. Naturally, for anyone who may come across it, we highly recommend learning more about the plugin first. If you think it is essential too, we invite you to read our full article. For users who already have My Flight Finder Tab on their Google Chrome and are looking for ways to eliminate it, we can offer our deletion instructions located at the end of this page.
One of the places where users could come across this PUP is its official site named myflightfinder.net. The other source is the Chrome Web Store page, where the application has currently zero reviews and ratings. We doubt that a lot of users would be willing to install a tool without know how well other users have received it. Also, we do not think that the mentioned sources are the only places to encounter this application. Many PUPs are spread via bundled software installers, and there is a chance that My Flight Finder Tab could be one of them. Thus, our recommendation to users who wish to avoid such applications is to keep away from unreliable file-sharing sites and always make sure that their chosen software is trustworthy before installing it. Plus, we advise picking advanced installations settings every time you can so you could review all terms and deselect bundled offers.
If installed, My Flight Finder Tab should appear on Google Chrome’s extension menu. Also, users should notice that their new tab page could have been replaced with a search engine called fsearch.hmyflightfinder.net. Users ought to know that this search engine might gather results via a modified Yahoo search engine. As a result, the collected results could contain advertisements from the extension’s third-party partners. The same could happen if you use the search box on the PUP's provided toolbar that ought to appear below your browser’s address bar. Another thing that should be known about the application is that while installed, it could read your browsing history. As you see, the tool should ask for permission to do it upon its installation. Together it should ask for permission to change your new tab page and “Manage your apps, extensions.” If you think it would be a mistake to allow such things for a potentially unwanted program, we advise removing the tool in question.
Users who decide to get rid of My Flight Finder Tab can do it either manually or with a chosen antimalware tool. If you pick the first option and need any guidance, you should follow the instructions located at the end of this paragraph. For users who choose the second option, we advise installing a reliable antimalware tool. Afterward, you should perform a full system scan, during which the chosen tool ought to locate My Flight Finder Tab and other possible detections. To remove them, you should simply wait for the scanning to be over and press a deletion button that ought to be displayed afterward.
