Ezy Photo Tab

Ezy Photo Tab is a browser extension that adds a toolbar with links to websites containing photo-editing tools below the browser’s address bar. It seems that at the moment of writing, the application works only on Google Chrome browsers, so we doubt that you could come across it if you are using Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, or other browsers. On the other hand, if you did encounter this extension or install it, we advise you to learn more about it. As you see, it is classified as a potentially unwanted program, which might mean that it could have undesirable qualities. You can learn more about it if you read the rest of this article. At the end of the text, you can find our deletion instructions too, that show how to delete Ezy Photo Tab from your browser’s extensions menu.

Applications like Ezy Photo Tab that fall under the classification of potentially unwanted programs often have official websites. However, they are also usually spread through platforms like the Chrome Web Store page as well as unreliable file-sharing websites, pop-ups, and ads. Thus, you could encounter it in various places.

Consequently, we advise being extra cautious while searching the Internet if you do not want to come across potentially unwanted programs. It is essential to check if a trustworthy company developed a program. Also, it would be smart to pay attention to both expert and user reviews. For example, at the moment of writing, this extension has a couple of reviews on Chrome Web Store. Both of the authors of the mentioned reviews complain about ads and give the application a low rating.

According to Ezy Photo Tab’s description, the application provides users with links to websites that have free photo-editing tools. If you do not want to install applications just to get a few links to websites containing photo-editing tools, we recommend bookmarking such web pages. However, adding a toolbar with links is not the only thing that this extension might do. As mentioned in the beginning, it is a potentially wanted program, which means it could have undesirable functionality.

Our researchers say that the tool could change a user’s homepage and new tab page with a search website that redirects to the Yahoo search engine. In other words, even though you might enter keywords into the extension’s search site, could be the one displaying you matching results. Again, it is vital to remember that you can search the Internet through without having to install any third-party tools; all you need to have is a browser and Internet connection.

Another thing that users ought to know about Ezy Photo Tab is that it might ask for permission to view their browsing history. Usually, such information is needed to determine a user's interests and create targeted advertisements. It is possible that this extension could gather data about your browsing for such a purpose as its Privacy Policy says that it can use collected data to “Enable service providers and us to serve relevant content and advertising.” Since the ads could come from various third parties, we advise being careful with them. Of course, if you do not want to see the advertisements that Ezy Photo Tab could display, you could eliminate it.

Researchers say that there are two ways to delete a browser extension like Ezy Photo Tab. One of them is to erase it directly from Google Chrome’s extensions menu. The task could be difficult, in which case, we advise using our removal instructions available at the end of this text as they can guide you through the process. The other option is to get a reliable antimalware tool that would detect the potentially unwanted program and help you erase it.
