A trustworthy and beneficial search tool is the most important thing for a smooth and efficient browsing experience, but Your Search Tool is not the kind of tool you can trust. It is presented as a beneficial extension for Google Chrome users, but it was created by Eightpoint Technologies, and this infamous company is known for View Free Recipes Now, Watch Movies Live, Easy Gaming App, and other well-known potentially unwanted programs. As you might have gathered already, the extension we are discussing in this report is classified as a PUP also, and our recommendation is that you remove it from your browser immediately. Without a doubt, if you think you need more information before you can decide what you want to do, you should continue reading our report. And if you are ready to delete Your Search Tool from your browser, you will find the tips that will help you get rid of the PUP immediately.
Eightpoint Technologies has set up yoursearchtool.com to introduce Your Search Tool, but the installer is found at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail//pnmllhjmofmdelekogimjbeaogjiigoi. If you click the ‘Add to Chrome’ button to install the extension, you are immediately informed that the PUP can read and change data on yoursearchtool.com sites, replace search with search.yoursearchtool.com, and also read browsing history to learn more about you and your preferences. While there are plenty of websites and online services that employ cookies and other data-tracking tools to gather information about their users, not all of them are as suspicious as Your Search Tool. It works with undisclosed third parties, and they also might have access to some of the information that is recorded. Most likely, these third parties are virtual advertisers who are working with Eightpoint Technologies so that their ads could be shown via Yahoo Search. As you must know already, if you used the PUP, it redirects to search.yahoo.com (Yahoo Search) via search.yoursearchtool.com, and this might be the number-one reason to remove it.
If you interact with the search results that are introduced to you by Your Search Tool, you could end up visiting questionable and, perhaps, unreliable websites.
