Convertmypdf.co is an extension that is currently compatible with Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer browsers. This extension is officially represented via its official website – which is also the name of the extension itself – and Chrome users are provided with the installer that is located on the Chrome web store. Both sources introduce potential users to the suspicious add-on as a great tool that can convert Word, Excel, PowerPoint, JPEG, and other files into PDF for free, which, of course, seems like a useful service. So why do we classify it as a PUP (potentially unwanted program)? When you install the extension, it automatically modifies browser’s settings. For one, the homepage on all browsers is switched to “http://www.convertmypdf.co/homepage/homepage.html?id=11162”. The PUP also displays this page via the New Tab. Internet Explorer users are likely to find liveemail set as the default provider as well. Due to this, we strongly recommend removing Convertmypdf.co from browsers.
