What do you pay attention to when you are installing a new program or extension? AllConvertersSearches proves that you have to pay attention to everything from the app’s name to alleged services, from third-party reviews to privacy policies. Unfortunately, many people look at the tool’s name and glance over its description to decide whether or not it can be trusted. Sadly, first impressions are often misleading. If you did not research the tool before installing it, you might be surprised to learn that it is identified as a PUP, or potentially unwanted program. According to our research team, removing AllConvertersSearches might be best, but do not trust our recommendations blindly. Read the report to learn how this extension works and what kinds of risks you might be undertaking by trusting it. Once you have all of the information, you can decide if you want to delete the extension or if you want to continue trusting it. Also, note that we can answer questions about this extension in the comments section below.
Some people might install the PUP thinking that it would offer access to portal.allconverterssearches.com. This webpage displays a collapsible menu that offers a working PDF converter, a cryptocurrency converter, and also a calculator. It should present a general currency converter too, but that tool did not work at the time of our research. Although some people might think that this webpage offers beneficial services, from what we have seen during our tests, AllConvertersSearches does not introduce it in any way. In fact, it only introduces feed.allconverterssearches.com, which is a search tool that takes over the default search provider on Google Chrome. How useful is this search tool? Some people might think that it is great since it redirects to Yahoo Search to show results, but our researchers warn that it is capable of modifying the results. This is how it is likely to promote third-party content. Who knows whose ads could be shown? Who knows how safe it is to interact with them? We certainly do not, and if you do not want to take any chances, we suggest removing the PUP without hesitation. After all, it is not like you would be losing an incredibly beneficial, irreplaceable tool, now would you?
Can you delete AllConvertersSearches yourself? Yes, you can. Should you do that? That depends on the situation. First, employ a malware scanner that is legitimate and trustworthy and can help you figure out if other threats that should be removed exist on your operating system. If they do, it might be more convenient and safe for you to install anti-malware software that is created to catch and delete all malicious threats automatically. If other threats do not exist, it might be enough for you to complete the steps in the guide below. That being said, you need to figure out how to secure your system against PUPs and more serious threats in the future, and if you do not think that you can do that on your own, you should also think about implementing trusted anti-malware software. Hopefully, you will be more selective about new apps and extensions from now on.
