AwayTab

AwayTab

AwayTab is a traveling application, or so it claims to be. According to the information presented on the official download website (awaytab.com) and the Chrome web store – where the installer can be found (chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/awaytab/homnophpjlhlpaglnfpomcambjmgceem) – this extension can help Google Chrome users discover new travel destinations, beautiful images, and the cheapest flights. Obviously, if you are interested in saving money when planning your next trip, this extension might sound pretty useful. That being said, at the time of research, only 311 users were counted by the Chrome web store, and so it is unlikely that this potentially unwanted program (PUP) is spreading actively.

In any case, this PUP is not an extension we can ignore, and we are sure that many users will choose to remove AwayTab. Are you one of them? If you are, we can help you delete this add-on.
