Danger level 3
Type: Potentially Unwanted Application is a search tool that might take over your browsers without any warning. Even though most users agree to install this search provider themselves, they do that unknowingly. The search tool that you might expect to install instead is, but this is just a website that promotes a Chrome extension associated with the suspicious search tool. This extension is meant to provide videos along with your regular search results when you browse the web, and we identify it as a potentially unwanted program. If you want to learn the reasoning behind this, and you are trying to remove, you should read this report.

The suspicious comes with a browser extension called “Video Search Tools Plus” which is available from and (Chrome web store). When installing this extension, you will be informed that it can manage your applications, read your browsing history, and change your search settings to This is the main reason why so many computer users delete as a browser hijacker. After all, users are sort of deceived into installing this search tool, and this is a good enough reason to remove it from your Google Chrome browser.

Once installed, Video Search Tools Plus will set as your homepage, default search provider, and new tab. It takes over the entire browser, and computer users usually end up using it at least once. Unfortunately, this search tool is not exactly reliable because it shows banner ads on the homepage and sponsored links in the search results. This is the second reason why we recommend removing from your browsers as soon as possible. The creators of the ads injected by this search tool are undisclosed, which means that they are unpredictable! Do you want to interact with potentially misleading ads? If you do not, you must delete the PUP as soon as possible.

The final reason for removing is its ability to collect personal information. In the “Use of Persona Details” section in the Privacy Policy it is stated that personal information can be used by the creators of the extension, as well as the third-parties acting on their behalf. Again, these parties are not disclosed, which is why we do not recommend trusting them. In the worst case scenario, your personal information could be used in a malicious way, and, obviously, you do not want that. If you are worried about your virtual identity, change your passwords after deleting

Our researchers have found that can be bundled with other programs. Unfortunately, these programs might be malicious as well, and you might have to delete them along with the potentially unwanted program. Once you delete Video Search Tools Plus from your Google Chrome extension, the unreliable will be eliminated automatically. When it comes to the removal of unfamiliar third-party programs – if they exist – we suggest installing and trusting an automated malware removal tool, SpyHunter.
