Easy News Now

When you downloaded Easy News Now, you might have expected great services from this extension. Perhaps you expected it to introduce you to the latest news from around the world. Did you acquire the extension from or the Chrome Web Store ( If that is the case, it is likely that you have been made to believe that his extension is truly beneficial. On the other hand, perhaps you do not know where this PUP (potentially unwanted program) has come from at all, and you were surprised to discover it in the Extensions menu (chrome://extensions/) of your browser. In both cases, inspecting the system with a legitimate malware scanner is strongly recommended. If you learn that you need to delete other threats, you might have to choose which ones you want to address first. If there is nothing else to worry about, you certainly should read our report to learn why removing Easy News Now is recommended.

Whether you installed Easy News Now on purpose or you have no idea where it came from, it is unlikely that you have checked the Privacy Policy of this PUP. According to it, the extension collects information that users provide, information about browsers, devices, and interactions with the extension, as well as information provided by third parties. One statement declares: “We may also obtain data from third parties, including providers of Third Party Ads and our Service Providers.” So, did you know that Easy News Now is involved in advertising? Not only does the PUP collect data from the undisclosed advertisers, but it also shares information with them to, allegedly, help “improve the relevancy of […] ads.” We are sure that most people will choose to delete the extension simply because they do not want to be flooded with ads. Especially, when they are coming from unknown parties. It is practically impossible to escape online advertising, but you certainly should pay close attention to the installed apps and extensions that can show ads.

At the time of research, over 100,000 Chrome users had downloaded Easy News Now from the Chrome Web Store. The PUP had a poor 2.8/5* rating and even poorer reviews. One of them came from a user who claimed that the extension redirected them to unwanted websites. Another one claimed that the extension was not installed on purpose. A third one called it “terrible” and claimed that it remained active even after removing it. Needless to say, this alone should deter users from downloading it. Nonetheless, people keep on letting it in. Why? First of all, some users pay little to no attention beyond the promotional information, which is always a mistake. Second, as it appears, not all users install Easy News Now willingly. Most likely, they do it by accident when installing something else. This is why it is extremely important to pay close attention when dealing with software bundles and unfamiliar installers. Once installed, the PUP is meant to show news-related pop-ups, but judging from the Privacy Policy, ads could be shown too.

Our recommendation is that you delete Easy News Now from Google Chrome. Even if this extension can show some news-related content, it is also likely to flood you with advertisements coming from unknown third parties. These parties might also track information about you and your activities, and their ads could be more personalized, but if they are unreliable, their allure could be misleading.
