What is BestConverterSearch?

Have you ever heard of those “converter” extensions before? There are tons of them out there, and BestConverterSearch is just another addition to the ever-growing pool if potentially unwanted applications. The good news is that we can easily remove BestConverterSearch and any other similar application. However, we also have to be careful about adding anything to our systems, so it would be for the best to add only programs that come from reliable sources. If a program doesn’t have a reliable source, it’s probably for the best to overlook it and move on.test

Where does BestConverterSearch come from?

As we’ve already mentioned, BestConverterSearch comes from a big group of similar applications. Most of them have the word “converter” in their names as well. There’s GlobalPDFConverterSearch, FileConverterSearch, StreamSearchClub, and many other browser extensions out there that belong to the same family. It means that whoever develops and distributes these applications do not sweat about them being unique or anything like that. All these apps look like they’ve just got off a conveyor belt, and they are practically identical.

Likewise, BestConverterSearch employs the same means of distribution as all the other extensions that came before it. It should be possible to find the extension at, but the Chrome Web Store page for the app has already been taken down. It means that there is definitely something suspicious about this application, and users shouldn’t be so hasty as to use it.

However, aside from the official sources that are easy to discern, there might be many other distribution sources that most of the users are not aware of. For instance, such apps could be easily distributed through random pop-ups that users encounter on third-party websites. Let’s say you’ve opened some page that offers free content. But that page is wrought with tons of commercial ads. Sometimes even clicking anywhere on the site launched a pop-up that tries to offer you some new product. BestConverterSearch might as well come from such pop-ups.

Of course, here you might say that it’s really easy to close such pop-ups, and there should be no problem with closing the pop-ups that distribute BestConverterSearch, too. Nevertheless, there are a lot of users who are too distracted to notice anything off about it. In fact, some of them even think that pop-ups are part of the site they are visiting, and they might follow the instructions on the pop-up, thinking they will be able to see even more content. And that’s how BestConverterSearch manages to slither into the target system.

What does BestConverterSearch do?

Luckily, this is not a malicious infection, and technically, it gets your permission to be added to your browser. However, if you don’t notice when or how that happens, you might think that you’ve been infected with a browser hijacker. Why? Because this extension changes your default search provider to It may also start logging your browsing history, but that’s beyond the point because this type of activity is not exactly visible.

So, the point is that some users don’t even understand how BestConverterSearch enters their systems. Although this extension says that it can provide you with a more enhanced search experience, you don’t really need a third-party app for something that you have achieve with your default search engine. Not to mention that by reading your browsing history, this extension could share that infromation with unreliable third parties, thus exposing you to unfamiliar and potentially corrupted content. Of course, exposing you to malware isn’t part of BestConverterSearch’s plan, but there are definitely issues that should not be ignored.

How do I remove BestConverterSearch?

These extensions can be deleted by going to your browser’s settings and opening the Extensions menu. But if you think that’s not enough to ensure your system’s safety, you might as well restore your browser’s settings to default. It is a rather drastic move, but it will help you start on a new slate, and all the unwanted programs will be gone.

You should also consider scanning your system with a licensed antispyware tool if you want to make sure that you don’t have more undesirable applications installed. Aside from relying on a powerful antispyware application, stay away from sites that could be part of freeware distribution networks.
