Users could encounter NewVideoSearch on the Chrome Web Store page, at least, at the moment of writing. Our researchers also say that the extension falls under the classification of potentially unwanted programs, which means it could be spread in the same ways as the other similar applications. Such tools often travel with bundled installers that could be available on file-sharing websites. What’s more, the potentially unwanted program could be spread through ads and pop-ups that could lead to its official website called portal.newvideo-search.com. One way or the other, if you want to stay away from similar software, you should download new tools only from legitimate sources and only after finding out that they are reliable and safe to use. In other words, you should take your time while getting new programs instead of installing them hastily without making sure that they are worthy of your trust and attention.
NewVideoSearch falls under the classification of potentially unwanted programs because it might have undesirable qualities. For example, the application could change users’ default preferences. To be more precise, it might replace the default search engine with a search website known as feed.newvideo-search.com. It would seem this is how the tool provides “easy access to search, images,” and content alike. However, is it not easier to access such content by typing needed keywords directly into your browser’s address bar or going directly to reputable search engines like Yahoo or Google instead of installing a third-party tool that provides a different search website? Moreover, our researchers say that the potentially unwanted program’s search website might redirect users to a modified version of the yahoo search engine. As a result, it might seem like you are searching through Yahoo, but the displayed results could contain ads from NewVideoSearch’s third-party partners.
