Rescroller Extension is a free Google Chrome extension that promises to make it possible to surf the web anonymously. Some users install it consciously expecting that search providers will no longer track them if they keep this piece of software active, but, of course, there are still more people who cannot explain how and when this extension has affected their browsers. No matter how it has appeared on your computer, you should know that it acts the same in all the cases. That is, it is still a potentially unwanted program no matter if you have installed it yourself or it has been installed on your computer without your knowledge. Potentially unwanted applications are far from harmful malware, but they might act in an undesirable way, so you should not let Rescroller Extension stay active. It is not an ordinary program. Instead, it is a browser extension, so you will not remove it through Control Panel. You could erase it through the add-ons manager only. It is not a problem if you do not know how to do that because the last paragraph of this report will explain you the Rescroller Extension removal in detail.

Rescroller Extension is presented as a useful piece of software, but the truth is that it is a useless browser extension, so you should delete this extension mercilessly today. We do not say that it is malicious, but we are sure you will not find it very useful either, so you will definitely not regret disabling it. Yes, it is not as beneficial as it claims to be, but it is not the only reason it should be eliminated. No matter where you get this browser extension from, it will collect two types of information (1) personal information and 2) anonymous information) as long as it stays active. If you check its Privacy Policy document, you will see that the personal information it will record includes such details as name, address, email address, and telephone number. As for the anonymous information, it consists of details that do not “directly or indirectly identify you.” For example, link clicks, login times, and the number of page views. Non-personal details will be captured automatically, but personal details will be recorded only if you provide them yourself. Rescroller Extension is not harmful malware, so it will not access any sensitive information, we can assure you, but it does not mean that you should not put an end to this activity it performs because it is indicated in its Privacy Policy that personal information might be shared with authorized service providers, business partners, and other third parties, meaning that it is only a question of time when privacy-related problems come up if Rescroller Extension stays and continues gathering information about you.

You might see Rescroller Extension next to other Google Chrome extensions because you have installed this piece of software yourself from the Chrome Web Store (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/dmlhkniepcckhimnledfjmhkjomacddn) – the extension is no longer available there. Also, you could have downloaded it from http://jinlun007.com/cixv/?&from=media. Specialists say that this website is usually opened to users when they click on untrustworthy links. Also, they might be taken to it from another website against their will. Last but not least, this page might be opened to users in the form of a pop-up. In such a case, it would be a good idea to check all installed programs because these pop-ups might be shown by adware active on the system. These programs are often distributed bundled, which is why many users do not know anything about their installation. If you come across adware on your PC too, remove it right away.

We cannot tell anything positive about Rescroller Extension. It is not as useful as it claims to be, it might collect information about users, and it might even affect users’ Google Chrome browsers without their knowledge. Therefore, we suggest that you completely remove Rescroller Extension if you ever find this browser extension next to other active add-ons. You will delete it easily if you follow our removal guide (see below). As you can see, you need to remove it through the Add-ons Manager. If you find it impossible to disable it, or you do not have time for the manual Rescroller Extension removal, you can use an antimalware scanner instead.
