PackTrackPlus is a browser add-on that works on Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Also, users should know it is classified as a potentially unwanted program, an application that might have undesirable qualities. According to our researchers, the extension’s annoying quality could be targeted advertising content that it might display while surfing the Internet. We would also like to mention that it might be best to be cautious with such ads as there is a possibility some of them could come from unreliable sources. To learn more about this and the add-on itself, we encourage you to continue reading our article. If you decide you no longer wish to keep PackTrackPlus on your browser, you should also take a look at the removal instructions available below. They will explain how to delete the add-on from Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
The potentially unwanted program is offered on the Chrome Web Store page (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/offers-by-packtrackplus/jbdmklhmhcmifepnmdagkieccjhidepf), but we doubt it is the only source where users can find it. After all, the application works on Mozilla Firefox too. The other ways PackTrackPlus could be spread might be bundled software installers, pop-ups or other ads, redirects, etc. Software coming from file-sharing web pages, sites distributing unknown freeware, and other unreliable sources should always be carefully researched. To understand whether a tool can be trusted or not, we recommend reading expert reviews and finding information about its developers. User reviews can be helpful to, but keep in mind they can be forged, so you should be careful, especially if the opinion sounds exaggerated or too good to be true. Also, it would not hurt to keep a reliable antimalware tool on the system so it could warn you about suspicious content.
According to the extension’s description, PackTrackPlus can monitor user’s browsing data to serve relevant or, in other words, targeted advertisements. It means the extension could record your visited web pages, clicked ads, search keywords, and so on. Then later it could display ads based on the information it gathered earlier. It is possible such ads could come from various third parties. In such a case, there may not be any guarantees the ads cannot come from unreliable sources. We do not say all of them could be suspicious or that they could lead to malicious websites, but some of them might promote other potentially unwanted programs, browser hijackers, adware, and so on. In case you do not want to risk encountering such content while searching the Internet, you could erase PackTrackPlus. This way you could no longer use the extension’s provided tracking tool, but there are plenty of online tools that can help you track your packages. In fact, many of them are offered by the services that are responsible for delivering your package.
If you decide to get rid of PackTrackPlus, there are two ways to remove it. One of them is to erase the extension manually. This you can do by going to your browser’s extensions settings. If you do not know how to do this, the instructions available below the article could guide you through the process. The other way to delete the potentially unwanted program from your system is to employ a reliable antimalware tool of your choice. Install the chosen tool and perform a full system scan. Then wait till the scanning is over and review the displayed results.
To eliminate identified issues at the same time, the tool should provide a deletion button. Lastly, we would like to mention that if you need more help with the extension’s deletion or have other questions about it, you could leave us a message at the end of this article.
