Rescroller Extension

Rescroller Extension is a browser add-on that was created for Google Chrome users by PrivSearch, Ltd. The company set up to represent the Privacy Policy and the installer of the add-on that is available at The installer has been taken down already, and it is possible that this is the end of this suspicious extension that we classify as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). Unfortunately, it is also possible that the add-on could still be spread in other ways. For example, you might have let it in by downloading a malicious software bundle or by interacting with a misleading pop-up or advertisement. Of course, if this is the case, the chances are that you let in more than one unreliable and undesirable piece of software. Before you continue reading and learn how to remove Rescroller Extension from your web browser, install a legitimate malware scanner to examine your operating system and determine whether or not you need to delete other infections besides the PUP. If you do, note that we can find removal guides for most infections on this website.

Officially, Rescroller Extension is represented as a tool that ensures anonymous web browsing. It is suggested that the PUP blocks search providers from tracking your history, and that makes little sense, especially if you review the Privacy Policy. A link to this document can be found at the bottom of the home page, or you can go to As the statement reveals, all kinds of information can be recorded by automatically obtaining data and via cookies that are installed to spy on you. That means that Rescroller tracks your browsing activity, and that is exactly what it is meant to “protect” you against. That is not the only reason you should remove this extension. It is also disclosed that the recorded data might include personally identifiable information. Do you still feel safe using this suspicious extension? We are sure you do not, and that is not all you need to be aware of. It is also shared via the Privacy Policy that undisclosed parties are allowed to display advertisements and place tags and beacons to record information. This is another important reason to delete the PUP.

According to our malware researchers, the suspicious Rescroller Extension can show warning messages once installed, and so you need to be very cautious about that. Of course, you will not be safe until you delete this potentially unwanted program. What about other threats. A malware scanner should have already revealed the situation for you, and you should already know what you need to do. Considering that you are still reading, the chances are that no other threats were found or that you have eliminated them already. Without a doubt, cleaning the operating system is crucial because even one malicious file or tracking cookie can be detrimental to your virtual security. But even if the scan showed no other threats beforehand, it does not mean that your system is clean if you have interacted with the ads shown by Rescroller afterward. If you have done this, you might have let in other data trackers too, and you might have been scammed. Overall, we cannot say what exactly would happen if you interacted with the links shown by this PUP, and since there is a possibility that you could be exposed to something highly misleading, getting involved is not recommended.

You should be able to delete Rescroller Extension yourself because this add-on operates solely as an extension, and so you should get rid of it as soon as you erase the unwanted item from the “Extensions” menu. Please use the instructions below if you have no idea how to erase the unwanted extension from the Google Chrome web browser. If other threats exist, and you choose to erase them manually, make sure you research them thoroughly before you eliminate their components to ensure that you are successful. Another option would be to install anti-malware software, and this is strongly recommended because it can automatically remove Rescroller Extension along with other found threats, and, at the same time, it can also reinstate full-time protection. This is, of course, something you need to think about if you want to avoid letting in malware and potentially unwanted programs into your system in the future.
