My Search Manager is a browser extension that is considered a potentially unwanted program. This Chrome extension is thought to be potentially unwanted because it has certain features that some users might find rather intrusive. If it was your intention to have this application on your browser, you can sure keep on using it, but please bear in mind all the things that come with it. If you do not want to have this extension, we will show you how to remove My Search Manager from your browser at the bottom of this description.

Just like most browser extensions, My Search Manager has at least two official sources. The extension can be found at the Chrome Web Store, and it also has the official website via mysearchmanager.net. Although the official website does not offer a lot of information on the program, you can add it to your browser directly from the main page. It also says that “with this extension you can easily switch between search engines from your New Tab page,” so if you want to have several search engines at your finger tips, you might think that this extension is a pretty good solution for that.

However, the official pages are not the only sources where users get My Search Manager. It may also come bundled with freeware, or it could be added to your browser automatically through a random pop-up. For instance, if you often download freeware apps from third-party sources, it would not be surprising to find My Search Manager on your browser because freeware apps often come with additional programs and features that users are not aware of. Also, certain websites that you visit may support third-party advertising, and those ads will pop up on your screen through new windows. Some of those ads could be part of a freeware distribution network, and thus My Search Manager (or any other freeware app for that matter) could end up getting installed on your PC.

You will notice the changes once the installation is complete immediately. The extension will modify your homepage settings; it will also change your default search engine and the new tab settings. It will try to make an impression that it can help you enhance your web search experience, but the truth is that it cannot provide you with anything original because the application makes use of the Yahoo! Search engine. What’s more, My Search Manager can also employ tracking cookies to collect information about your web browsing habits. That information is necessary to display modified search results that would be related to your likes and preferences.

If you were to see the search results you like, you might be more inclined to click them, and this is exactly what this extension aims for: every time you click something it gives you, you help the people behind this program make money. While the scheme itself is not illegal, it is highly intrusive. Not to mention that My Search Manager could also get exploited by cyber criminals. Therefore, you need to avoid the worst-case scenario by removing My Search Manager today.
