Danger level 3
Type: Potentially Unwanted Application

My Email Checker Tab

My Email Checker Tab is offered for users who want to have a toolbar that would provide quick access to different email providers. However, our researchers say that the application does more than provide a toolbar with links. Apparently, it could also make that your browser would load a specific search engine when you open a new tab. Also, the extension could gather information about your browsing habits. If you want to learn more about its behavior, you should read the rest of this article. We offer deletion instructions as well that show how to remove My Email Checker Tab from Google Chrome. Our researchers say that since the application belongs to the potentially unwanted programs category, it should be possible to erase it with a reliable antimalware tool too.

My Email Checker Tab comes from a website called myemailchecker.co. Also, Google Chrome users can download it from the Chrome Web Store page. If your browser is not Google Chrome, but Mozilla Firefox or any other browser, we doubt that you will encounter this extension. For now, it works just on Google Chrome. It is possible that users of this browser might also encounter the plugin while visiting file-sharing websites and interacting with pop-ups or similar ads. As you see, many potentially unwanted programs are spread through such channels. Thus, if you want to keep way from such software, we advise being careful with pop-ups and to avoid unreliable file-sharing websites. If you find it difficult to separate doubtful sites, you should keep your browser up to date as well as employ a reliable antimalware tool that would keep your system clean and protected.

Users who install My Email Checker Tab should notice changes like new website on their new tab page and a toolbar with links to various websites below their browser’s address bar. The website that the extension might replace your new tab page with might be called hp.hmyemailchecker.co. It is a search engine that redirects to Yahoo search engine. Meaning it does not gather or display search results itself. However, our researchers say that the potentially unwanted program might be able to modify Yahoo search results, so the results that you might get could be different from the ones that an unmodified search.yahoo.com would display. Such applications often modify search results so that they could insert advertisements from their third-party partners. It is possible that My Email Checker Tab could do so too and that the results it shows could be targeted.

While researching the extension we reviewed its Privacy Policy document. According to it, My Email Checker Tab could gather both personal and anonymous information. Usually, tools collect personal information if a user somehow provides it himself. Thus, it is not clear how the plugin could gather such data. As for anonymous information, the extension’s Privacy Policy says that it can gather data about your device, its operating system, your IP address, information about your extensions, your geographical location, and more. Besides, the application could get various information from the user’s browsing history, as the potentially unwanted program asks for a permission to view such data. Something else that you should know is that the plugin could share collected data with third parties. Also, it is said that it could be used to “assist third parties, such as advertisers and publishers, to connect with you to promote advertising in their apps and websites.” Meaning, it is possible that you could receive tailored ads.

If all things considered, My Email Checker Tab does not look like your dream extension, you do not have to waste any time with it. Our researchers say that the potentially unwanted program can be erased both manually and with automatic features. If you pick the first method, you could follow the instructions located below as they show how to delete My Email Checker Tab manually. On the other hand, if you select the second option, we advise getting a reputable antimalware tool. Once it is installed, you should be able to perform a full system scan and erase all detections at once as soon as the scan is over.
