What is AllMoviesSearch?

If you expected AllMoviesSearch to help you find or even watch movies, you have to be disappointed by this extension after installing it. It has nothing to do with movies specifically, and all it can offer is a search engine that you can use to find anything, including information about movies. The problem with the search tool offered by this PUP (potentially unwanted program) is that it cannot be trusted. Our research team has analyzed this PUP thoroughly, and we know for a fact that it exploits Yahoo Search to show modified search results. Therefore, the user might think that they are using Yahoo, when, in reality, they are browsing through the results selected by the PUP. If you do not understand why that is risky and why we recommend removing AllMoviesSearch, we strongly advise that you continue reading. To learn how to delete the PUP, check the last section specifically.test

How does AllMoviesSearch work?

AllMoviesSearch is a clone of SearchProConverter, StreaminSearchs, SearchConverterHD, and a bunch of other potentially unwanted programs that have been proven to be useless and unreliable. In most cases, we have found these extensions offered on the Chrome Web Store, where all of them are presented as “single purpose” extensions. That simply means that these extensions are useless. If you did not use the installer to acquire AllMoviesSearch, perhaps you used a third-party installer? This is risky because the PUP could be bundled with other questionable pieces of software, and if you have a suspicion that, perhaps, you now need to delete additionally installed threats, we advise implementing a trusted malware scanner. The tool will examine your system and determine whether there is anything that you must remove. Of course, regardless of the outcome, you must not forget about the PUP itself. Although it can seem pretty harmless, our researchers warn that it is not.

If you installed AllMoviesSearch, might have been set as your New Tab page, and must have replaced your old default search provider. The interface of the first page presents a search box and a menu of free widgets, which include a PDF converter, a currency converter, and also a calculator. If this menu is the only reason why you decide to keep the PUP installed, let us tell you that that is a terrible reason. You do not actually need an extension to convert files or use a calculator, and there is much more to AllMoviesSearch than that. When you use the search tool provided by this PUP, all of your browsing history is recorded. The extension also tracks your interactions with the content presented to you. The worst part is that the PUP can inject virtually any link into the results page, and that makes it unpredictable. The parties using this advertising platform are not disclosed, and we have to consider that they could be unreliable.
