AntiGravity Tab offers a unique look for your new tab page and homepage. Furthermore, it is claimed that it will enhance your browsing and search experience, and, above all, provide you with the means to check the weather in your location. However, we regard it as a potentially unwanted program that you should consider removing. It is not malicious, but there are things about it that check some of the boxes of a potentially unwanted program. For more information, we invite you to read this whole article.
Like most programs that we classify as potentially unwanted, AntiGravity Tab was created by an unknown developer and published by an unknown publisher, and that is not due to the lack of possibility to do so. This program has a dedicated distribution website at Antigravityflowtab.com from which you can download this application. However, the website gives no mention about the developer of publisher which is one of the reasons we consider this application untrustworthy. Furthermore, the website is not the only distribution channel for AntiGravity Tab. You can also get it from the Chrome Web Store. The statistic provided by the store indicates that this application has 9 users only. We have received unconfirmed information that this application can also be bundled with other software and put up for download on freeware distributing websites.
The primary reason we regard this program's ads potentially unwanted is the fact that it replaces Google Chrome’s homepage and new tab page upon installation. It changes these settings to a custom page. The fact that it changes the settings without prior warning is outrageous especially if you got this program unintentionally after installing a software bundle. This program may collect non-personally identifiable information such as your IP address, approximate location, search queries, browsing history, browser type, and OS type. We have found that this program can use this information to display slightly personalized commercial advertisements that can be both annoying and pose albeit small but real security threat.
While there is no evidence that the ads this program shows are malicious, you should consider the fact that AntiGravity Tab is a program that comes from an unknown background and it seems that its gimmicky feature of livening up your browser is just a front for its real objective. From the outset, it is clear that this program’s primary objective is to show you advertisements and generate advertising revenue for its developers. However, the program might use the pay-per-click system, so you need to click an ad for the publishers to get paid. Therefore, this might be the reason why this program collects information — to personalize the ads as much as possible to maximize the revenue potential.
In conclusion, AntiGravity Tab is a rather deceptive program that says to do one thing while secretly also doing another that is showing ads. The ads come from unknown sources, and this program’s origins are also unknown, so we assume it to be untrustworthy. This program is distributed via several channels, and if you get it accidentally from a software bundle, then you might want to get rid of it. If that is the case, then we advise that you use the removal guide provided below, provided that you not know how to remove an extension from Chrome. We also suggest that you scan your PC with an antimalware program to make user that there is no undesirable software that might cause you trouble.
