MyChristianPortal is an extension for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox browsers. It is officially introduced at mychristianportal.com, and while Firefox users can access an installer directly via this website, Chrome users are redirected to the Google Chrome Web Store to find its installer. You also could find it directly at chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/mychristianportal/ddlgplemmmbibdngmopialjfhdffpkan. If you have not used these sources for installation, we have to consider the possibility that you might have found this PUP (potentially unwanted program) bundled with other extensions or applications and introduced by third-party installers. If you do not remember how this PUP was installed, or if you know that a bundle was executed, implement a malware scanner immediately. If it detects threats, make sure you delete every single one of them. In this report, we show how to remove MyChristianPortal, and if you are not sure why that might be necessary, you definitely want to continue reading.
There is no secret that MyChristianPortal is part of the Mindspark Interactive Network, just like hundreds of other extensions, including NoteHomepage Toolbar, MyFileConvert Toolbar, or TaxCenterNow Toolbar. As you can tell by the names of these extensions, all of them are meant to offer something different. That said, the services offered by them are extremely limited, and the unifying factor is the search tool that comes attached. These extensions always hijack the New Tab page and/or the homepage of the browser (depending on the browser), and the introduced page always promotes search.myway.com. So, it seems that perhaps these extensions are mainly created to promote this particular search engine. It shows search results, but it is also likely to be used to collect information about users and how they interact with the content introduced to them. Advertisements and sponsored content could be shown too, which is why it is strongly recommended that users of MyChristianPortal and similar extensions pay attention to what search tools they use and also how they use them.
You now know how MyChristianPortal works, and so you can decide whether this extension is worth keeping around. If you are not amused by the idea of facing a suspicious search tool every time you open your browser or its New Tab page, and the extension also fails to provide you with the promised Christian resources, it is only fair if you decide to delete MyChristianPortal. That can be managed quite easily manually, and the guides below demonstrate how to get rid of the potentially unwanted program from Chrome and Firefox browsers. They also show how to clear browsing data in case you want to delete web cookies or clear the cache. Another solution you can apply is to install anti-malware software. Once it is installed, it will automatically remove the PUP and all other threats that might exist. Of course, in this situation, the software is most useful if additional threats exist, but if you care to have the system protected in the future, we suggest installing it in any case.
