How many email accounts do you have? Do you use many different service providers? YourMailTab promises to give you access to them all from your new tab page on Chrome or Firefox web browser for free, and so you might see no harm in installing this extension. Officially, you can install it from chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/your-mail-tab/bdebjeelkdcdicneeddnconmanabgfni (Chrome web store) or yourmailtab.com, but it could also be introduced to you bundled with other suspicious programs and extensions. Even the official installer could be presented via random pop-ups on unreliable websites. In any case, we advise scanning the operating system to make sure that the PUP – potentially unwanted program – is the only thing that you need to remove from your entire operating system. If that is the case, it should be enough to follow the guides below to delete YourMailTab right away. However, if other strange pieces are found, you need to be more cautious.
YourMailTab has to collect information so that the creator could pass it on to parties working with online marketing and advertising. The information could be sold to make a profit, or the creator could be paid every time the user clicked on an ad. This service is called ‘pay-per-click.’ Although it does not look like the suspicious PUP shows banners or random pop-ups to deliver ads, we know that the search engine could be used to introduce advertisements and links to sponsored websites. You might have noticed this if you entered keywords into the YourMailTab search field. Unfortunately, the PUP uses a well-known search engine – Yahoo Search – to offer results, and since this search engine is trusted by millions, the added ads might not seem like much. The reality is that you do not know what kinds of ads could be shown, and Yahoo has nothing to do with that. While this search tool can show ads, trusting ads supported by a trusted company is completely different than trusting ads shown by a suspicious PUP that, originally, is meant to offer quick access to your email accounts, not ads.
It is our recommendation that you remove YourMailTab from your web browser right away. It is not that useful, and the PUP’s ability to record information, pass it on to unknown parties, redirect you, and show modified results via Yahoo Search is very questionable. Luckily, deleting YourMailTab is very easy. Just open your browser, access the list of extensions, and get rid of what you don’t want. We also recommend clearing browsing data to get rid of any data trackers that might have been injected by the PUP or its partners. That is easy to do as well, and you can learn about the process in the manual removal guide below. Your other option is to install an anti-malware program. This is definitely the best choice if there are other PUPs or malware to eliminate, and if you are worried that your operating system could be hit by serious malware, such as ransomware, Trojans, or keyloggers.
