Mysupertab.com is a website that represents a potentially unwanted program called My Super Tab. This program is introduced by 50m.media ltd, and Google Chrome users can install it from the Chrome web store at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/mysupertabcom/lcflelakhnphegeofidpfnacmpmcmhgj. This extension has been classified as a PUP – which is short for “potentially unwanted program” – because although it allows users to browse the web, it does that in a way that might put users at some risk. While we do not claim that this extension is malicious, it certainly has many questionable permissions once it is installed on the browser. Also, it changes the homepage and the default search provider on Google Chrome to search.mysupertab.com/pse/search?&query, which some users might recognize as browser hijacking. Again, it is a PUP, not a hijacker. That being said, there are reasons you should consider deleting My Super Tab regardless of how you recognize it.

If you have discovered Mysupertab.com and My Super Tab via the Chrome web store, you might think that this PUP can offer the “best new tab experience.” The extension is supposed to provide users with the list of most-visited websites directly via the New Tab page on the browser. It also displays a search box, which is meant to offer an easy way to search the web. The extension is free, and it certainly does not sound like a malicious one, which is why you might download it without thinking too much about it. However, if you initiate the installation of the PUP, you are supposed to learn about the permissions that the PUP is granted if you proceed. These permissions include replacing the New Tab page, reading your browsing history, displaying notifications, changing search settings, detecting your physical location, and also managing other apps, extensions, and themes. Does that make the PUP intrusive? It sure does. After all, Mysupertab.com is meant to offer you search services and access to your favorite websites. Why does it need to spy on you or know your physical location? These are the reasons most users choose to delete the PUP.
It is also possible that Mysupertab.com and My Super Tab could be introduced to users via third-party websites and by third-party downloaders. Sometimes, unreliable parties and malware distributors employ attractive and seemingly useful programs to conceal threats and potentially unwanted programs. Did you acquire Mysupertab.com without meaning to when downloading something else completely? If that is the case, you need to examine your operating system immediately. Install a legitimate malware scanner, and it will let you know if there is anything that you need to delete. Do not be surprised if the PUP is identified as a threat also because, after all, it is not exactly innocent. Can you remove My Super Tab but leave Mysupertab.com as your default search provider? Well, if you delete the PUP, the search provider will be restored back to normal, and that is not something to worry about because Mysupertab.com is not that useful. Sure, it provides you with links to your favorite websites, but you can bookmark them for easy access. Also, it presents Google Search via its search engine, and if you like it, you can set it up as your search provider.
It is very easy to delete Mysupertab.com because all you need to do is get rid of My Super Tab. This extension can be found in the chrome://extensions menu, and we show how to access it via the guide below. Without a doubt, removing Mysupertab.com manually is a piece of cake. However, if there are any other potentially unwanted programs or even malicious infections – which you should have figured out by now using a malware scanner – manual removal might not be the best option. We recommend looking into anti-malware software that is built to find and erase malicious files and also PUPs. After this software deletes malware, it also secures your operating system, which should ensure that you do not face malware and PUPs ever again. Of course, you have to do your part as well. Stay away from unreliable downloaders, install all updates, and make sure you do research before installing new extensions and applications.
