MyDocsHere is a browser extension that can change Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox homepages and new tab pages. Since such behavior could be irritating, the toolbar was classified as a potentially unwanted program. Our researchers report that it might also require permissions that would allow the tool to do more things that could irritate users. For example, the extension may ask to let it show you notifications. Such content could be annoying because it might appear on your screen, and it could contain third-party ads. If you do not think that you want to have such a tool, you could erase MyDocsHere by completing the steps located at the end of this report. As for learning more about this potentially unwanted program, we invite you to read the rest of this article. If you have any questions, feel free to use our comments section too.
First, it is essential to talk about how MyDocsHere might be spread. Our researchers say that the application has its official website called mydocshere.com/index.jhtml. Also, Google Chrome users might be able to download it from the Chrome Web Store page. Usually, it is difficult to recognize potentially unwanted programs just from reading their descriptions. However, sometimes you can sense that the application might not be one hundred percent trustworthy after reading its reviews. Currently, we can see that a few users who rated the toolbar on the Chrome Web Store page gave it only one star out of five. Also, many of them expressed their dissatisfaction with the tool. Of course, you should never trust user reviews blindly, which is why we advise doing your own research on the tools that you may want to install. Ensure that they come from reliable developers and that their installers come from legitimate websites if you want to avoid potentially unwanted programs and software alike. You should also get a reliable security tool that could help you keep your system safe and clean.
How does MyDocsHere work? First, the application might replace your homepage and new tab page with a website called int.search.myway.com/search/GGmain.jhtml. Once installed, the toolbar may start collecting data from your browsing history and showing you notifications, as the tool may ask for permission to do these things upon its installation. Before providing it with the mentioned permissions, you should know why the application may need them. The permission to show notifications could be used to display advertisements from multiple third parties. Therefore, such content might not be reliable. Also, it could be irritating as the notifications could show tailored ads. That is quite possible given the extension asks to view your browsing history, which might help the toolbar learn what kind of websites you visit, what you search for on the Internet, and so on. Naturally, if you do not want MyDocsHere to view your browsing history or show you notifications, you could get rid of it.
Users who no longer wish to keep this extension on their browsers can delete it either manually or with a chosen antimalware tool.

If you prefer the second option, we advise installing a reliable antimalware tool and doing a full system scan with it. By the time the scanning is done, you should be able to delete MyDocsHere along with other detections at once.
