Live PDF Converter

Live PDF Converter is not classified as a critically dangerous threat, but it is a PUP – potentially unwanted program. Do you know why that is so? To put it in very simple terms, this extension exposes users to unknown parties and their content via a search engine that most of us know and trust. Unfortunately, not all people realize how the PUP impacts what they see via this search engine, and these are the people, who are most likely to be affected by it. If you know exactly why you want to remove Live PDF Converter from your operating system – and that might be simply because you do not find it to be useful – we have a guide and a few important tips. If you do not know much about this suspicious extension, we have some interesting information. In either case, we recommend that you read this report, and if questions come up, move the discussion to the comments section below.

Did you download Live PDF Converter from the Chrome Web Store? If you were introduced to the installer at, you must have known that this infection can read browsing history and change search settings on the Google Chrome browser. If you acquired this suspicious PUP from a different source, perhaps you do not know much about it, and you ended up installing it just because it claims to offer free PDF conversion services. If you admit to installing the PUP carelessly, we hope that this is the last time you install anything that way. Instead of clicking download/install buttons left and right, whenever that feels right, you want to research and analyze the software and extensions you are interested in first. Even if you find positive user reviews, you also want to check privacy policies to make sure that you agree with everything. For example, if you do not think that a search tool should track your activities and share information about you with unknown third-party advertisers, Live PDF Converter is not the extension you should download.

When you install Live PDF Converter onto Google Chrome, your default search provider is switched to, and the New Tab page should be switched to The interface of the New Tab page should offer a free PDF converter, but this is not the main feature of the PUP. If you enter search keywords into the presented search box (or the address bar of your browser), you are redirected via to Are you familiar with this search engine? Millions of people around the world use Yahoo Search, but that does not mean that it can be trusted in every situation. When Live PDF Converter redirects to this search engine, it modifies the results to add the sponsored content of unknown advertisers and other parties. The Privacy Policy attached to the installer on the Chrome Web Store suggests that webcoapps is responsible for the PUP. It is also responsible for SearchZone, SearchOpedia, SearchConverter, and many other PUPs, all of which redirect to Yahoo Search to showcase sponsored links. Clearly, they are unreliable and deserve removal.

Hopefully, you will be more careful when installing new extensions and programs in the future, but right now, you need to figure out what you want to do with Live PDF Converter. Of course, we advise deleting this potentially unwanted program. Even if you do not care about it redirecting you to another search engine and showcasing sponsored links, you have to think about the utility of the tool as well. Do you find it useful?
