My Search Manager

My Search Manager is an extension that, according to our research, at this point works on Google Chrome only. Whether or not the extension will be developed for other browsers as well is unknown, but if anything new is found out, this report will be updated immediately. For now, we know that it acts as a potentially unwanted program because it changes search settings and forces users to interact with results that are likely to be modified. Although the tool is meant to provide users with different options, that is just an illusion. Without a doubt, we recommend removing My Search Manager from your web browser, and if you are confused as to why or how you should do it, we are hopeful that you can find all answers to your questions in this report. There is one thing you need to understand right away: This extension is not trustworthy. Even if you have found it useful, you need to delete it, and you need to do it now. Note that if you want to ask us anything regarding the threat, you should do so via the comments section.

Google Chrome users can download My Search Manager from or the Chrome web store at In either case, the extension always asks for the same privileges, which include replacing data on the sites you visit, reading browsing history, managing apps, and, of course, changing search settings. The PUP (potentially unwanted program) represents itself via the New Tab page, but it also hijacks the default search provider, which is the main reason some classify it as a browser hijacker. You are bound to be introduced to the permissions if you acquire the extension from the official sources, but if it comes bundled with something else and is carried by a malicious installer, it is unlikely that you would be given such information. In either case, reviewing the Privacy Policy and researching My Search Manager using unbiased sources is important. Hopefully, you have stumbled upon this review before installing the add-on, and you do not need to waste your time with its removal.

The interface of My Search Manager leaves much to desire. It is just a blank page with a search field in the center of it. On the right of this field, you are introduced to a drop-down menu, via which you can choose from Yahoo, Bing, Google, and Privacy options. Regardless of which one of these you choose, all search queries are automatically redirected to Yahoo Search ( Some users might be pushed into thinking that the results shown to them are just fine, but that might be an illusion. Many creators of browser hijackers redirect searches to Yahoo Search because users trust this engine, but the results are modified to expose them to potentially unreliable and undesirable content. This is what you need to be cautious about if you use My Search Manager. In fact, our research team does not recommend using at all. You can find a much better search tool – you can even choose Yahoo Search – and there is no reason why you should stick with a hijacker. We advise deleting this threat, but if you continue using it, you must be alert at all times.

Which method of removal will you choose to delete My Search Manager from your Google Chrome web browser? Will you erase the extension and then reset your browser to ensure that no leftovers remain? Or will you install a tool that will eliminate this potentially unwanted program automatically? The latter option might be most beneficial if other threats exist along with My Search Manager. How can you find that out? If you are not ready to invest in anti-malware software – which is the software that can erase all infections automatically – you can install a free malware scanner to inspect your operating system. Hopefully, nothing is found, and you can get your browser and operating system clean in no time. But if threats are found, quickly research them to learn more about them. Note that you can find information on most threats on this site. All you have to do is enter the name of the threat into the search box.
