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.
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.
