My Email Checker Tab is a tool that was designed by Eightpoint Technologies Ltd. This is the first sign that identifies a potential threat. Unfortunately, this company keeps producing more and more extensions that seem to offer legitimate services, but in reality, are completely useless and, perhaps, even intrusive and unreliable. A few other programs that are linked to the same company include Email Access Here, Your Search Tool, Find A Flight Pro, Breaking News Plus, and Watch Movies Live. Needless to say, it makes no sense for the same company to create several apps for email access/management, and that is another sign that, perhaps, these apps are not meant to be that useful. Of course, whether or not they are useful for you only you can decide. In either case, we recommend removing My Email Checker Tab and all other apps that were created by the same company.
