- Hijacks homepage
- Changes default search engine
Funtabcybersearch.com is a search tool that you might install bundled with the FunTabCyber add-on. This add-on was created by Imali Media, and this company is responsible for the search tool as well. The search tool – which we classify as a browser hijacker – is the main the feature of the extension, and other services are represented directly via it. At the time of research, the add-on was only compatible with Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox browsers, and so it is unlikely that you will find it installed on other browsers. The hijacker, on the other hand, could take over any browser if it spread on its own. The official installer of FunTabCyber is available at funtabcyber.com, and you can download it from the Chrome web store. However, third-party installers could distribute it as well. If the extension/hijacker reaches your browsers via unfamiliar installers, it is impossible that your operating system is now infected with other threats that must be deleted. Even if that is not the case, you should remove Funtabcybersearch.com from your browsers.
According to our malware researchers, Funtabcybersearch.com is most likely to be targeted at users living in the United States or Europe. Of course, no one is safe. The good news is that it is unlikely that this hijacker will corrupt browsers without your notice and permission. On the contrary, it is more likely that you will have the opportunity to accept or decline the suspicious search tool. Now, if you want to install FunTabCyber, you will be forced to accept homepage, new tab, and default search provider changes, which is why Funtabcybersearch.com is classified as a browser hijacker. It comes from the same group as Search.yourinstantradio.com, Search.yourinstantsocialhub.com, and other well-known browser hijackers that we have reviewed in the past. You can find removal guides linked to these threats on this website. Unfortunately, not all users realize right away that these hijackers should be deleted because they are represented in an attractive manner. For example, the search tool we are discussing in this report provides easy-access links to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Youtube, Linkedin, Amazon, eBay, and AliExpress, all of which are identified as reliable services.
If Funtabcybersearch.com was introduced to you along with the FunTabCyber extension, the chances are that you will delete Funtabcybersearch.com by eliminating this extension. If the hijacker operates on its own, you might have to change homepage and search provider tools, which is not all that hard to do. Our manual removal guide below explains how to erase this extension/hijacker manually. Of course, this is just one of the options you have. Another would be to install an automated malware remover, and this is the option we recommend in case other threats are active. Keep in mind that the malicious threats active on your PC could be much more dangerous than the hijacker, and so you have to take care of them right away.
