MyFashionTab Toolbar might enter your system if you interact with doubtful pop-ups or install unreliable software that it could be bundled with. What’s more, our specialists say the extension is nothing more than another tool from Mindspark family, and it falls under the classification of potentially unwanted programs or PUPs in short. Many of the similar applications offer specific links to make the software look more useful, for instance, in this case, the plugin provides links handy for users who are interested in fashion. However, you should be aware the search engine used by MyFashionTab Toolbar (search.myway.com) might show untrustworthy advertising material among the displayed results, which is another reason why we recommend not to trust the PUP or leave it unattended. If you decide you do not need such software on your computer, you could get rid of it while following the deletion steps located below.

Further, we would like to talk more about MyFashionTab Toolbar. To start with, it would be useful to know where the PUP might come from so you would know how to stay away from such applications in the future. Even though the extension is available on Chrome Web Store page and its homepage named myfashiontab.com/index.jhtml, it is likely to be spread through bundled software installers and pop-up advertisements too. Therefore, to keep the system clean we suggest being more cautious when picking new programs. Check if the chosen tool does not have any bad expert/user reviews that could show there might be something suspicious about it. Next, it is crucial to obtain installers from legitimate web pages. Torrent and other unreliable file-sharing web pages may offer installers bundled with PUPs or even malicious applications. Lastly, if you fail to notice there is something wrong with the program or its installer, you could be saved by your antimalware tool, so if you do not have a security tool yet, we advise considering acquiring it.

As most Mindspark extensions, MyFashionTab Toolbar could alter specific browser preferences, for example, start page or new tab page. This is why the affected browser may start loading search.myway.com after the PUP settles in. Our specialists say they noticed the gathered results were displayed with a modified google.com version as they were testing the extension and its features. The reason we do not like this idea is that there is a possibility modified results could contain various advertisements from multiple third parties. Such ads might be possibly dangerous because there is not knowing where they could come from. For example, if the source was untrustworthy, the ads could come from scam web pages, sites promoting similar PUPs or malware, and so on. Naturally, it could be dangerous to interact with such content, although we cannot know for sure if MyFashionTab Toolbar’s used search engine will display it. In any case, if you have no wish to take any risks, we would recommend erasing the PUP.

To eliminate the application manually, users should delete its created files. This process will be explained in the steps located below this text, so if you need any assistance, you should check them out. On the other hand, you can erase MyFashionTab Toolbar with a reliable antimalware tool too. All you would need to do is scan the system with a chosen security tool and then remove the PUP along with other possible detections by clicking the given deletion button.
