Converter Suite can provide you with a toolbar that would have links to websites that can convert your documents into PDF and other formats. You should know that in order to provide this the extension may also alter your browser preferences like your homepage and view your browsing history. Such functionality might be undesirable and so the application was classified as a potentially unwanted program. If you want to learn more about it, we encourage you to read the rest of this article. In it, we talk about the application’s distribution, its working manner, and deletion. We also provide removal instructions a bit below the article that show how to delete Converter Suite from Google Chrome, the only website that it is compatible with at the moment of writing.
Bundled software installers, pop-ups, and ads are usually used to distribute potentially unwanted programs. Thus, even though Converter Suite has an official site (convertersuite.com) and it is available on the Chrome Web Store page, we believe it could still be spread through other sources too. Naturally, if you wish to avoid such applications it is advisable not to let your guard down on legit websites like Chrome Web Store page and to stay alert when you come across software offered on unreliable file-sharing websites, pop-ups, or ads. You should always learn about the company that created your chosen tool as well as what experts have to say about it. We recommend deciding whether to install a program or not only when you find out the mentioned information. If you want not only to avoid questionable tools but also to protect your system against malicious applications, we advise getting a reputable antimalware tool that could stand guard.
If Converter Suite gets installed, the application might add the earlier mentioned toolbar that should contain links to websites that can convert documents into various formats. Also, the toolbar could contain links to news websites, social media platforms, and so on. Such links could seem useful, but do not forget that you can bookmark any website or platform that you need to access quickly with your browser. In other words, you do not have to install third-party tools to save links. The toolbar is not the only change that the potentially unwanted program might do to your browser. Our researchers say that it could also change your homepage and new tab page with a search website called convertersuite.com/newtab/v1/7ei0k1.html. If you are wondering whether it is a powerful or advanced search engine, you should know that it might redirect you to search.yahoo.com instead of displaying search results itself. Thus, the search results that you might get while using Converter Suite’s search website might be displayed by the Yahoo search engine.
Moreover, users who are doing all they can to protect their privacy might be interested in the fact that this application could gather data from their browsing history. It is important to stress that the extension might gather only the information that is considered to be anonymous, for example, names of your visited websites, search keywords, clicked ads, and so on. However, some users consider such data private and might not want to share it with an application that falls under the classification of potentially unwanted programs. In such a case, it might be best to look for an online document converter that would not require installation.
If you have installed Converter Suite and now wish to delete it, there are a couple of ways to do so. First, you could try to erase it manually from the Google Chrome’s extensions menu. The task is not that complicated and if you need any help, feel free to use the instructions located below this paragraph. The other way to eliminate Converter Suite is to scan your computer with a reliable antimalware tool. The potentially unwanted program should get detected during the scan and you could erase it afterwards along with other possibly identified items.
