As mentioned in the beginning of this article, ConvertrzSearch might come from a website called get.convertrz-search.com. You should know that this site might offer you not only extension but also notifications on your screen. In others words, if you visit get.convertrz-search.com, you might receive a message saying that the website wants to show notifications. The message ought to let you decide if you want to allow or block such content. It is possible that the notifications could contain advertisements from various third parties. Meaning, they may not be reliable, for example, they could advertise other potentially unwanted programs, etc. Therefore, we advise not to click Allow if you do not want to risk seeing such content on your browser.
Another way to come across ConvertrzSearch, at least, at the moment of writing, is to visit Chrome Web Store. Like other similar potentially unwanted programs on the mentioned platform, the extension is advertised as: “The best way to search.” As for the description given on the extension’s official website (get.convertrz-search.com), it says that the tool provides a convenient search engine and allows you to search the Internet directly from your browser’s address box. The truth is that you do not have to install any third party tools to be able to search the Internet by inserting keywords directly into a browser’s address bar. Major browsers already offer such features. Usually, the results get to be displayed by your default search engine that you can set through your browser’s settings.
Another thing that we ought to mention is that ConvertrzSearch might change your default search engine with a search website of its own. Also, you should know that this search tool may redirect to a modified Yahoo search engine that ought to display the results. Again, you can surf the Internet through Yahoo or any other major search engine of your choice without installing any third party tools. Thus, the application’s description might make it sound as if you will get access to exclusive features and content, but the truth might be that you already have such access. The last thing that we believe users who are thinking about installing ConvertrzSearch should know is that it might ask to view their browsing history.
Such a permission might allow the potentially unwanted program to gather data about your browsing habits, for example, your visited websites, clicked ads, etc. Such information could be useful for various purposes, for example, to determine your interests and create targeted ads. We do not say this could necessarily happen, but if you do not want to take any chances, you may want to remove ConvertrzSearch.
As said earlier, there are a couple of ways to get rid of this potentially unwanted program. One of it is to complete the steps placed below that show how to remove ConvertrzSearch from Google Chrome, which is the only browser that it works on so far. The other way to eliminate the potentially unwanted program is to do a full system scan with a reliable antimalware tool and click the deletion button that it ought to show at the end of the scan.
