SearchProConverter might not look like much, but it is a potentially unwanted application that is compatible with the Chrome browser. The application is supposed to improve your web search experience, but users often don’t understand how SearchProConverter enters their computers. It is very likely that this extension gets added to your browser accidentally. If you didn’t plan to have this app on-board, you might as well remove it right now. For more detailed guidelines, please scroll down to the manual removal instructions that you will find at the bottom of this description.
Needless to say, there are many ways for this application to reach your computer. Although it has an official website and it can also be found at the Chrome Web Store, it is very common for SearchProConverter to come bundled with freeware or through pop-ups and redirects. It also means that users agree to add this extension to their browsers. The point is that the app would not be added to your browser if you didn’t agree to do it. It’s just that you probably miss the notification that informs you about the application, and you click that blue “add” button without too much thought.
However, if you agree to add SearchProConverter to your browser, you also agree to other things that this extension comes with. For example, it says that by clicking the “Add to Chrome” button and installing Search by SearchProConverter, you are agreeing to install this extension,” and “by installing, Search by SearchProConverter will change your Chrome’s default search.” If you miss this memo, you will probably be caught unawares, and you will think that you got infected with a browser hijacker, but that’s definitely not the case because you ALLOWED this extension to enter your computer.
You might also say that it’s okay to keep SearchProConverter because it provides you with optimized search results. While that might be true to some extent, you mustn’t forget that this extension doesn’t have an original search service. It makes use of the Yahoo! Search engine to provide those search results. It doesn’t mean that Yahoo! Search has anything to do with this extension. It’s quite common for such apps to make use of popular search engines to make themselves look reliable. However, that doesn’t mean that you should keep SearchProConverter on-board if you don’t want it.
Also, let’s not forget that SearchProConverter might display commercial third-party content, too. This extension needs to earn a living somehow, so it might collect information on your web browsing habits to figure out your likes and preferences. That’s not anything illegal because it merely tracks your web browsing patterns and not personally identifiable data. However, if SearchProConverter really starts displaying custom ads, you have to be careful about the third-party sites that you get redirected to. While this extension doesn’t try to infect you with malware or anything like that, the same cannot be said about the third-party websites that make use of SearchProConverter to promote them. The app cannot review every single link it promotes, and so, you could land on a dangerous site, too.
The bottom line is that you can save yourself the trouble of dealing with potentially corrupted content by removing SearchProConverter today. As mentioned, you can delete the extension by following the instructions at the bottom of this description. The instructions we have provided will help you terminate all the other unwanted apps, too. However, it would also be a good idea to scan your computer with a licensed antispyware tool because you can never know whether you have more unwanted programs running or not. Just do all it takes to protect your system from harm.
