New Tab Minimal

New Tab Minimal is meant to provide you with a better experience when you are browsing the web. This suspicious extension has an interface of a normal search engine, but it offers the option to switch between different search providers. Also, it displays a ton of easy-access links routing to popular websites. By installing this extension, you agree for it to replace your regular New Tab page, and this is how it is represented. If you have set up New Tab to show up when you launch your browser, you might think that it has modified your homepage as well, but that is not exactly the case. All in all, although this add-on offers attractive services, our research team recommends deleting it without further delay, the first reason for that being that you might be exposed to unreliable search results. If you want to learn more about this, you should continue reading the report. If you cannot wait to remove New Tab Minimal from Google Chrome, our research team has prepared a guide that you can find below.

Chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/new-tab-minimal/kmfgdllhehfhcgkdnnoejlpoipafahhc (Chrome web store) offers the official installer of New Tab Minimal. Although it is stated that the extension is offered by newtab.club, this website is represented by the extension itself, and so the official source of this strange add-on is not known. Of course, it is unlikely that many users will acquire the extension from the Chrome web store. Have you found the add-on attached to a program you were trying to install using an unfamiliar installer? It is much more likely that this is how you were introduced to New Tab Minimal. According to our research team, this extension might come bundled with YoutubeAdBlocker, which is also classified as a potentially unwanted program (PUP) because it might force you to install adware. Unfortunately, other unreliable programs could be packaged along with the extension as well. Due to this, we suggest scanning your operating system to assess the situation. Obviously, if dangerous threats are found, you need to make sure you get rid of them as soon as possible.

Although newtab.club provides you with links to Facebook, Instagram, Gmail, Wikipedia, Booking, Netflix, YouTube, and many other well-known services, you should be more cautious about the search tool. As you can see, it allows you to switch between google.com, go.mail.ru, yandex.ru, bing.com, yahoo.com, and nova.rambler.ru search providers. Some of them are more popular and reputable than others, but what matters the most is that New Tab Minimal can exploit all of them. As stated in the Privacy Policy (newtab.club/privacy.html), advertisements can be introduced to you. It is most likely that they will be introduced to you via the search results page, and it does not matter which search tool you choose to use. So, whether you use Yandex or Google Search, sponsored content could be mixed in with regular search results. Needless to say, that is not how a reliable extension should work. While both Yandex and Google can support advertising, the results shown to you are controlled by a third-party, and that is a red flag. This is why we suggest deleting New Tab Minimal from Google Chrome ASAP.

If you are only focusing on New Tab Minimal – which is what you should do, unless more unreliable programs are running on your operating system – you should have no trouble getting rid of it manually. The guide below can help you eliminate this Google Chrome extension in no time. Unfortunately, protecting your operating system by yourself can be extremely complicated. Nowadays, malicious threats can hide behind random links, email attachments, downloaders, advertisements, pop-ups, and so on. Although you might be able to browse the web and use your computer without facing any threats, you do not need to tiptoe around just to evade malware. Anti-malware software is designed to catch and eliminate dangerous infections before they cause any problems, and you definitely should consider investing in it even if you can remove New Tab Minimal and all other threats currently active on your PC manually.
