If you do not want to be flooded with ads whenever you browse the web, PackTrackPlus is not an extension we would recommend installing. According to our research team, this extension is meant to collect information about your activity and then send it to advertisers so that they could produce attractive offers. The extension could also select from the base of available ads to deliver them to you. This is pretty much how online advertising works, and there are no surprises here. Unfortunately, it is unknown who can gain information about your activity or use the extension’s services to advertise, and that is what makes it untrustworthy. As you can probably tell, we recommend deleting PackTrackPlus. Hopefully, you have come to the same conclusion already, and you cannot wait to remove this PUP (potentially unwanted program). However, if you still need more information, keep reading.
Did you download PackTrackPlus along with other programs? That is most likely to be the case, and so you should immediately inspect your operating system. Maybe other threats and PUPs do not exist, and maybe you do not need to worry about their removal. That being said, if other threats exist, you do not want to ignore them as the sooner you get rid of them, the safer you might be. We suggest installing and running a legitimate malware scanner even if you downloaded the PUP from packtrackplus.com or chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/offers-by-packtrackplus/jbdmklhmhcmifepnmdagkieccjhidepf, both of which are considered to be reliable sources. Chrome users can download the extension from the web store only, and the information provided on the page informs that ads would be shown by the PUP after its installation. Basically, the ads should come as no surprise. Of course, judging by the name of the extension, it also should track packages. While the extension we tested did not work that way, we know that a search engine exists that does enable users to track packaging. We do not advise trusting it either.
When you face offers by PackTrackPlus, you might interact with them without thinking things through. If you are lucky, you will be shown harmless ads that promote some kind of service or a tool. However, there is also a possibility that the PUP could promote unreliable ads and offers. In that case, you could be exposed to scams, unreliable surveys, fake prize giveaways, malicious installers, and so on. Therefore, if you decide to interact with PackTrackPlus ads, you have to make sure that you are always careful. Better yet, do not pay attention to the ads, and figure out how to eliminate the PUP from your Chrome and Firefox web browsers. After all, the PUP’s only services include tracking information about you and then introducing you to ads, and neither of these services are likely to bring anything good to you.
Do you want to remove PackTrackPlus manually? If you do, you will be glad to find a full manual removal guide below. At the time of research, the potentially unwanted program was compatible with Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome web browsers only, but if you find that you need to eliminate the PUP from a different browser, make sure you leave a comment below so that our research team could update the guide. We hope that you will find deleting PackTrackPlus manually easy, but we do not know how you will be able to handle other threats that might exist. As we discussed earlier, it is possible that other threats exist, and in that case, you need to figure out how to erase them also. You should be able to find removal guides on this website, but it might be quicker and safer for you to employ anti-malware software that would locate and erase all unreliable and malicious files or programs automatically.
