We have found that this PUP is also spread in freeware bundles. This also means that it is possible to install this extension without even realizing it because you may be targeting another free program indeed. Bundles are a tricky thing. They can be very deceptive. In fact, a bundle may carry a number of threats, including PUPs and malware infections (e.g., adware programs, ransomware programs, browser hijackers, and Trojans). If you are not careful while installing a bundle, you could end up with several threats on your system without even knowing. This is why you may not even recall installing this PUP.

We believe that it is best to run a trustworthy online malware scanner right after you delete Meme Generator - MemeTab so that you can identify all other possibly harmful programs as well.
When you install this Google Chrome browser extension, it changes your homepage and new tab page settings to search.memetab.com.

However, let us not forget about the fact that this PUP may gather information about your online activities based on your browsing history, for instance, and use it, or even share it with third parties, to target you with tailored third-party ads.
