iSportTV Search Plus Extension
iSportTV Search Plus Extension might look like a useful application that can improve your overall web search experience. However, computer security experts maintain that this extension is a potentially unwanted application that can be exploited by cyber criminals to expose users to harmful content. Therefore, if you happen to have this extension added to your browser, you should remove iSportTV Search Plus Extension as soon as possible. While you are at it, you should also look for other unwanted applications that could have entered your PC together with this extension. Do not hesitate to use a powerful antispyware application for that if necessary.
First, we must point out that this extension is compatible only with the Chrome browser. So it might not affect other popular browsers, but it does not mean you can breathe a sigh of relief if you do not use Chrome. If this extension comes bundled with freeware, you could end up installing more unnecessary programs that COULD affect Firefox or Internet Explorer (we seldom deal with potentially unwanted programs that affect Edge). The point is that there is more than one source that distributes iSportTV Search Plus Extension around. Of course, you can get it at its official homepage or the Chrome Web Store. But that is not the only road this extension may take before it reaches you.
When users are not aware of the extension’s presence, it is very likely that it has arrived at the target system in a software package. In fact, that is probably the most common freeware distribution method, and users quite often end up installing a lot of unwanted applications on their computers. When iSportTV Search Plus Extension comes bundled in a software package, you install several applications at the same time. Normally, it is possible to choose which programs you want to add to your system and which you want to leave out. However, if you go through the installation automatically, you will miss this opportunity.
Frankly, this extension does not look like anything dangerous. What’s more, if we were to visit its official website via ienjoyapps.com, we would find a lot of good words about it. Even on the Chrome Web Store, the extension is presented as a “powerful search engine, offering you a variety of unique features and search tools.” And with this extension on your browser, you will be able to “easily keep up to date with sport TV channels and search the web.” If you are an avid sports fan, perhaps this extension sounds like a good deal, but the question is whether you really need a third-party program to satisfy your hobby needs.
What’s more, iSportTV Search Plus Extension will change your default search engine when you add it to your browser. All of your search queries will be redirected through sport.searchalgo.com, and then you will be land on Yahoo! Search. The search results that you will find on the Yahoo! Search page might be modified because the extension clearly employs tracking cookies to collect information on the websites you visit and the keywords you use. It is very common for extensions and potentially unwanted programs to do that. They need to make some profit by promoting third-party content, and if you interact with that content (by clicking it), iSportTV Search Plus Extension will get paid for it.
Technically, seeing modified search results and other commercial content is more annoying than dangerous. But we have to consider the fact that it is still an invasion of your privacy. Not to mention that it could easily turn into an attack on your system’s security, too. There is always a chance that the program’s advertising network could be exploited by cyber criminals, so you have to prevent that.
The best way to do that is to remove iSportTV Search Plus Extension from your browser today. You should also consider resetting your browser to default because there might be more unwanted extensions added, too. If you want to know just how many undesirable programs you have on-board, scan your system with the SpyHunter free scanner. When you have the list of unwanted programs, you can uninstall them manually or remove them all with a licensed antispyware application of your choice. Whatever you might choose to do, make sure that your system is safe and protected from similar intruders.
