Are you being constantly redirected to ask.com, and you have no idea why it happens? Perhaps you have Tab2Play installed on your browser, and you did not even notice that? We would like you to pay attention to details, as this description deals with the browser extension that can eventually lead to severe computer security issues. Needless to say, you need to remove Tab2Play and everything else that could be detrimental to your system’s security ASAP, but, at the same time, we would like you to know how this application enters your computer, and what you can do to avoid it.
The reason you are strongly recommended to avoid installing Tab2Play is that the extension is directly associated with the Mindspark adware family. Thus, it is not that different from GasGlance Toolbar, FunPopularGames Toolbar, HomeworkSimplified Toolbar, and many others. As far as our research goes, there are even browser hijackers associated with this group, so it should be enough to raise security concerns regarding Tab2Play. Thus, it should be important to note potential distribution channels used by this extension.
If that were not enough, let us not forget that Tab2Play modifies your default browser settings, too. The extension changes new tab settings, and the next time you click the new tab, you will be lead to Ask.com. This search engine is used by almost all Mindspark applications. The customized version of this search provider will also be set as your default homepage, although its address will be tab2play.com. The homepage will look like an interactive search engine that provides you shortcuts to your favorite websites, but you should not be so hasty as to click any of them.
Please bear in mind that Tab2Play can collect your online browsing information to expose you to potentially harmful third-party content. To put it simply, you need to remove Tab2Play right now if you want to avoid potential threats in the future. When you have the extension removed, scan your PC with a computer security tool of your choice.
