Yoga New Tab

Yoga New Tab is an extension that is only compatible with Yoga New Tab. The extension appears to have been created by mystart.com, but it does not have an official download page. Unfortunately, the information representing this extension is very limited as well. The only somewhat official source for this add-on is chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/yoga-new-tab/jphkcdmoaacdaignphfganfdjadbfbim. You can acquire the extension from the Chrome web store, and it appears that it is only compatible with the Google Chrome browser. The page does not disclose privacy policies, terms of use, or any other legal information that we encourage all users to review before installing anything. Needless to say, this is one of the reasons why you should not install it. Unfortunately, users rarely take the time to review legal information, and so it is unlikely that many will notice its absence. Our research team classifies the suspicious add-on as a potentially unwanted program and recommends deleting it. If you need help with the removal of Yoga New Tab, just keep reading.

According to the information presented via the Chrome web store, Yoga New Tab customizes the new tab page to help you practice yoga. A collection of images is represented via this add-on, and you can use the “Change your backgrounds” tool to switch between them. Besides that, the add-on allows you to switch between Yahoo and Google search tools, presents the “To Do” feature, shows current date, time, and weather forecast, and enables you to view most visited websites. Needless to say, the features are quite intriguing, and so it is not surprising that some choose to install Yoga New Tab. Speaking of the installation, have you downloaded this add-on bundled with other programs? It is unlikely that you have found the Chrome app on your own. Instead, it is most likely that you have been introduced to it via a software bundle that you might have executed when downloading a different program. If you have downloaded other programs along with the add-on, you should inspect your operating system using a legitimate malware scanner immediately to check if you need to delete malicious infections.

Yoga New Tab is represented via the New Tab, and if you have set up New Tab to show up on startup, you might think that it has hijacked your homepage as well. When installing this add-on, you should have been introduced to a pop-up listing a number of permissions you give it. Few of them include recording your browsing history and changing your bookmarks. If you think that is weird, you are right. If you go through with the installation, you will be greeted by mystart.com/new-tab/olgyoga/ every time you visit the New Tab page. In the center of this page, you can see a search dialog box. If you enter search keywords, you will be redirected either to Yahoo or Google, depending on your preferences. In both cases, the search results can be modified, and this is the main reason to delete Yoga New Tab. Unfortunately, useless third-party content and potentially unreliable advertisements could be shown to you along with regular search results. As you can imagine, interacting with them could be risky.

Although Yoga New Tab offers somewhat interesting and useful services, you have to remember that this potentially unwanted program can spy on you, even modify your data, as well as introduce you to highly suspicious third-party content via the search tool. According to our research team, choosing to delete Yoga New Tab is the right decision. Fortunately, the removal of this PUP is not that complicated. You can either get rid of the extension by following the guide below or by resetting your Chrome web browser. Of course, if this potentially unwanted program has slithered into your operating system bundled with malicious threats, you have to scan your PC to check things out. In the worst case scenario, you will find malware that requires immediate removal. If you cannot erase the threats found manually, remember that anti-malware software can identify and eliminate all malicious components automatically.
