My Daily Verse XP
My Daily Verse XP is an application that is not limited to those operating on Windows XP. As long as you have Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox installed on your operating system, you can download the app. It is installed as an application for Internet Explorer users, but Chrome and Firefox users install it as an extension. It is represented via the New Tab on all browsers, but it also can change the homepage and default search provider on IE and Firefox browsers. The good news is that all search settings should be restored once you remove My Daily Verse XP, and that is not difficult to do if you know how to approach the task. Since you are reading this report, it is likely that you need some help deleting this strange, potentially unwanted program that is also recognized as a browser hijacker. You can stop worrying right now because if you continue reading, you will find all the answers to your questions regarding the suspicious application/extension.
Polarity Technologies Ltd. created My Daily Verse XP. It also created I Need Directions Now, Maps Driving Directions, Easy File Converter, and a ton of other well-known PUPs that are accompanied by browser hijackers. The one following the app discussed in this report is Search.mydailyversexp.com. If you installed the app, this search tool must be represented via the New Tab, and you might need to remove it from the homepage and search provider too. This search tool is extremely suspicious, and if you enter keywords to use it, it redirects to search.yahoo.com via extsearch.maxwebsearch.com. Unfortunately, the results can be modified, and interacting with them can be dangerous. To make these results more attractive, My Daily Verse XP can record information about you using cookies and other data trackers. Some information can also be shared with third-party advertisers. This might be the most popular reason users choose to delete this strange application and its search tool from their browsers. Unfortunately, it has some attractive features as well, which is why some users might feel tempted to keep it around.
Whether you have downloaded My Daily Verse XP from an official website (in the past it used to be promoted at mydailyversexp.com/DailyBible), the Chrome web store, or an unreliable website that bundled it along with malware, it should promote the same third-party links via its home page. At the top, you should find links to blueletterbible.org/study.cfm, biblegateway.com, bible.com/bible/1/jhn.1.kjv, and americanbible.org/resources/daily-bible-reading. Below the search field in the middle, you should also find links to amazon.com, walmart.com, facebook.com, and gmail.com. All of these links are legitimate, and some users might find easy access to the sites pretty convenient. Of course, no one should sacrifice security for convenience, and we believe that that is what would happen if you did not delete My Daily Verse XP. This application/extension can appear to be useful, but you must not ignore the fact that it introduces users to a highly questionable search tool and that it collects information about them using silent tracking technologies. If you are prepared to face the risks just because of the easy-access links, we suggest adding them to your browser’s bookmarks bar. If you do that, you will not need to download any add-on or program to provide you with access to the bookmarked sites.
As we have promised already, it is not difficult to delete My Daily Verse XP. Internet Explorer users can uninstall it, and Firefox and Chrome users can remove the extension. The guide below shows how to eliminate the infection manually, but keep in mind that that is not the only option you should consider. It is wise to contemplate the employment of anti-malware software. If you install it, all PUPs, hijackers, and other unreliable pieces will be eliminated from your operating system and browsers automatically. You need to be extra careful about the additional threats that might exist on your system. They could hide completely, or they could use disguises, and you might be unaware of them. Even if you decide to remove them manually, you want to detect them first, and a reliable malware scanner can be very helpful.
