TheEasyWayPro is meant to make it easy for you to access maps and find directions, which suggests that it is a type of a navigation app. The thing is, however, that it is not actually that useful. First of all, it is an extension that you can only download on Google Chrome, and it is highly unlikely that you would use your browser to check for directions. There are plenty of apps that you are more likely to use on the go, and if you want to look up maps and directions using a browser – which you are most likely to do using a desktop computer or a laptop – you can always visit google.com/maps, bing.com/maps, and similar websites. That is not the only reason we classify it as a potentially unwanted program (PUP); however, the uselessness of this extension is the top reason users are likely to delete it from their web browsers. Do you want to remove TheEasyWayPro, but you are not sure how to do it? Are you looking for information that would explain how this program works? Continue reading, and you will find your answers.
TheEasyWayPro might be recognized as a hijacker because it changes the default search provider of Google Chrome upon installation. Your regular provider is replaced with srchbar.com, and if you enter keywords into the address bar, you are routed to the Bing search engine. If you are familiar with this engine, you might trust the results that are shown to you, but you should not because TheEasyWayPro modifies them. That means that you might be shown unreliable links and advertisements along with legitimate results. On top of that, the PUP uses data trackers to collect information about you to present you with personalized ads. Note that the collected information could be used against you. Of course, if you type “maps” into the address bar and then tap the “Tab” key on the keyboard, you can activate a unique search engine. You are meant to type in the name of the location you want to reach, and then you are routed to Google Maps. Needless to say, this isn’t very useful, considering that you can easily access google.com/maps yourself. In fact, if you bookmark the site, you might have an easier time accessing it.
If you install TheEasyWayPro, you grant it permission to change your data on certain websites, record your browsing history, change the default search provider, and even manage apps/extensions/themes. On top of that, the extension is not truly beneficial because it redirects to Google Maps to provide you with maps, and it redirects to Bing Search to provide you with search results. Unfortunately, they are modified and, therefore, cannot be trusted. Overall, the services provided by the PUP are neither trustworthy nor useful, and that is why we suggest deleting TheEasyWayPro immediately. You should have no trouble removing the unwanted extension, but do not forget that you also need to clear browsing data to ensure that cache is cleared and cookies are removed. If you are not sure how to handle all of this on your own, follow the instructions below. If you discover other PUPs or maybe even malware, do not hesitate to implement a trusted anti-malware tool that will be able to delete all threats automatically.
