Spirals New Tab

Spirals New Tab is a Google Chrome extension that offers the users of this browser an interactive search page. This page has an animated background, and it can provide you with the latest weather forecast for your current geo-location. If that seems intriguing, you are likely to download this strange extension yourself, but you could also let it in by accident when downloading multiple programs and extensions bundled together. While the suspicious add-on – which we classify as a potentially unwanted program – works the same regardless of how you acquire it, it is, without a doubt, safer to install it from its official download sources. You can learn more about that by reading this report. This report also discusses the security issues you need to think about when using the PUP. The removal of Spirals New Tab is discussed as well. If you wish to delete this potentially unwanted program right away, check out the instructions below. If you need more information before you decide what to do, continue reading.

The official download sources of Spirals New Tab include (the official website) and (Chrome web store). At the time of research, these sources were still offering the installer of the PUP; however, that is no longer the case. The download page is not working normally, and the installer on the Chrome web store has been taken down. This only proves what we knew all along: The PUP is not reliable. Once installed, it would change the homepage and the new tab to introduce users to an animated search engine with the weather forecast data at the bottom. To make the page more attractive, easy-access links to YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Linkedin, Amazon, and eBay would be added. These links, according to our research, were not misleading or malicious, and users should not have had any problem interacting with them. Obviously, you want to delete Spirals New Tab not because of a few harmless easy-access links that are added to your homepage.

If you believe that Spirals New Tab was created for your pleasure, you have been mistaken. The interface of this potentially unwanted program is attractive because the creator of this PUP wants to convince you to use it. The Google Search engine is employed for the exact same reason. Since Google Search is the most popular search provider in the world right now, it is undeniable that most users using Spirals New Tab will trust the results shown to them. The good news is that the results shown via this engine are not modified by the PUP to include unreliable or irrelevant sponsored content. That being said, Spirals New Tab is likely to employ tracking technologies to spy on you and record information. This could include information about your operating system or your browsing habits. The creator of the PUP and the associated parties could use data trackers to learn what kind of content you interact with, and this information could be shared with less reliable parties. This is an important motive to delete this PUP.

As you can see, you only need to perform a few steps to get rid of this potentially unwanted program. It is also recommended that you clear the browsing data to ensure that no unwanted cookies continue spying on you without your notice. In case you have downloaded the extension along with other unreliable and unwanted pieces of software, you need to figure out if you can clean your operating system on your own. Obviously, it makes no sense for you to remove Spirals New Tab manually if you will need to employ anti-malware software to have other threats erased automatically.
