Mongo Search

Mongo Search, also known as QuericsSearch, is an extension for Google Chrome users that can be downloaded completely for free. This might be its main attraction because other than that it does not seem to be extremely useful or intriguing. The extension is officially introduced via the Chrome Web Store (, and the included description suggests that it can “configure your default search.” It is not explained how exactly this extension is meant to benefits its users, but at the time of research, a few had already installed it into their browsers. Is it possible that the PUP (potentially unwanted program) could be spread in other ways? Even the most trustworthy and legitimate apps have been found to spread via software bundles, and unreliable distributors often use them as bait. So, did you download the suspicious extension along with other suspicious things? If you did, perhaps you now need to delete malware? Hopefully, the only thing you need to figure out is how to remove Mongo Search.

We do not claim that you need to remove this extension because it certainly cannot be compared to extremely malicious threats that download dangerous files, steal passwords and other personal info, create and delete files, spy on users, and do other terrible things. Nonetheless, it can collect some information about you, and it can even impact what you end up seeing on certain websites. First of all, if you download Mongo Search, the default search provider of your Google Chrome browser is changed to represent If you visited this website, you would see a search dialog box with a beautiful image behind it. That is meant to make the search tool more appealing to the eye, which automatically puts some users at ease. However, it is much more important that the interface of this search engine does not include links to legal information. Of course, if you downloaded Mongo Search from the Chrome Web Store, you were provided with a link to A Privacy Policy is an extremely important statement that all users need to review but only a few do.

According to the Mongo Search privacy statement, the PUP’s creator works with third parties, who are not disclosed, but include “service providers, advertising companies, and ad networks.” These parties are permitted to place advertisements and use ad tags and beacons. They also can use cookies and other tracking technologies to collect information about users. Needless to say, most search providers reserve the right to share information with undisclosed parties and to allow them to place ads. That being said, you have to be very selective about tools and services that have such privileges. If you do not trust Mongo Search, for example, we are sure that you do not want it recording information about you and then relaying it to unknown parties. Of course, if you use to browse the web, your search queries and interaction with the shown results can be recorded. What is most disconcerting is that the PUP can redirect you to any search engine: “The Mongo Search Search will check the best suitable search provider for You automatically.” This puts you at risk of facing potentially unreliable providers too.
