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, 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 from your browsers.

According to our malware researchers, 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 is classified as a browser hijacker. It comes from the same group as,, 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.

Besides promoting links to legitimate, well-known sites, also offers two unique widgets: Secure Notes and Secure Documents. These widgets allegedly allow creating notes and documents that can only be opened with the set password, and we are sure that many users will find these services attractive. What about the search tool? According to our research, the hijacker reroutes all search queries to, and the results delivered could include sponsored links. Needless to say, interacting with links that do not correspond to your search queries equals wasting time. Also, it could be dangerous to click on links that could route to unpredictable websites. As stated in the Privacy Policy, information regarding your virtual activity could be recorded to deliver “targeted content and advertisements.” Are you sure you want Imali Media to record your browsing behavior?
