MySafeTab is a browser extension that distributes Search.mysafetabsearch.com, which is known to be a questionable search engine. Both the search engine and the extension are products of IMALI – N.I. MEDIA LTD, and they are promoted at mysafetab.com and the Chrome Web Store. Therefore, there are many users who see the MySafeTab extension in the list of add-ons and have to use Search.mysafetabsearch.com as the default search engine. Some users download the extension themselves because it promises to provide the access to “security tools and useful links”, whereas others cannot explain why they have this extension on their computers. Researchers at 411-spyware.com do not find it surprising at all because they know that IMALI – N.I. MEDIA LTD products are often spread bundled with free applications or might find other ways to enter computers. As users are not careful enough, they install the entire package of software unknowingly. The way in which MySafeTab extension has entered your computer is not the most important thing the because you still need to erase it if you wish to set a more reliable search tool instead of Search.mysafetabsearch.com. To be frank, specialists suggest getting rid of this search provider ASAP. To find out why it is so, you should read this article.

At first glance, Search.mysafetabsearch.com looks like a perfectly decent search engine. There is a search box in the middle of the page and it returns the Yahoo! search results. Even though it really works as a search tool, tests run by researchers specializing in the field of malware have revealed that Search.mysafetabsearch.com promotes third-party websites mainly. In fact, it is very likely that it has been created just to drive traffic to particular websites. Of course, you will see decent search results in the search results page too if you enter a search query; however, the majority of search results do not have anything in common with the entered search query. Search.mysafetabsearch.com is not responsible for your safety. If you look at the Terms of Use more carefully, you will find out quickly that you use it at your own risk. As this search engine is not responsible for the safety of third-party websites it promotes, you might cause harm to your computer quickly. Furthermore, you should be aware of the fact that this search tool is interested in personal and non-personally identifiable information. It should record personal details only if you submit them yourself, but it will definitely gather non-personally identifiable information automatically every day. This type of information might still tell several facts about you, so you should put an end to this if you wish to feel safe.

You see Search.mysafetabsearch.com set in the place of your default search engine and the New Tab page because MySafeTab is added to your Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome browsers (yes, only these browsers are affected). There are four ways this piece of software is spread: users can get it from mysafetab.com, the Chrome Web Store (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/mysafetab/ijdcdideehdjconcfikhfmnhcgklelnm), it might come bundled with other applications, or it might be installed on the system the second a user clicks on a pop-up advertisement promoting it. There is a bunch of similar extensions promoting search.realcoolmoviessearch.com, search.wondrousmoviessearch.com, search.tvaddictsearch.com, and other similar search tools, so you need to be careful if you do not wish changes to be applied to your browsers again. Actually, it might not be enough to be careful, so we suggest installing a security tool too. Enable it and keep it active to ensure the system’s safety.
