What is BubblePDF?

It is highly recommended that Google Chrome users install extensions carefully. BubblePDF is one of those extensions that look completely harmless and even useful at first sight but turn out to be neither.

Hopefully, you are reading this report because you are researching the suspicious add-on, and you have not yet installed it. However, if you have acquired this PUP (or potentially unwanted program), you will want to keep reading this article to learn more about it. The Anti-Spyware-101.com research team recommends removing it, but you can come to your own conclusions. Also, as always, if you find yourself with unanswered questions, you can use the comments section to add them. We can help you delete BubblePDF and also secure your entire operating system.test

How does BubblePDF work?

Before we get down to the functionality of BubblePDF, it is a good idea to explain how this suspicious extension is represented. Its official download website is bubblepdf.com, and those interested in the PUP can find a Privacy Policy link at the bottom of the homepage. Note that every time you are about to install a new program/extension or sign up for new services, you must review privacy policies, license agreements, and other documents that, although, boring contain very important information. You should always look into how the creator of a program/service is tracking information, how it is protected, and also how it is used. From reviewing the Privacy Policy of the PUP, we know that it can track some data – which might include personally identifiable information – and also use to assist third-party advertisers. We have also learned that the extension might be used to show advertisements, and so if you do not want to be bombarded by unpredictable ads presented by unknown third parties, you need to think very carefully if BubblePDF is the right tool for you.

The official download website does not offer an installer. Instead, it opens the installer page on the Chrome Web Store – chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/bubblepdf/jpemcaegpkkggfllgbfnpffnjaclhmeo. Both sources introduce the PUP as a tool that can convert PDF files, and this kind of service is always in great demand. So, does the tool work? To some extent, you might say that it does. BubblePDF hijacks the New Tab page of the browser to open hp.bubblepdf.com. This webpage shows easy-access links to popular social media and shopping websites, as well as attractive news headlines at the bottom. At the top, you can find a button that presents a converter. Of course, the PUP itself does not convert files. Instead, it redirects to onlinetools.sodapdf.com, and if you want to use the service presented via this website, you have to ask yourself if you really need the PUP around. At the end of the day, you have free access to the website, and the extension does NOT grant you exclusive access to it. This is exactly why Chrome users are choosing to remove this strange extension.

How to delete BubblePDF

In conclusion, although BubblePDF might have promised to help you convert PDF files, in reality, it can do nothing more than provide you with a link to a website that offers the service. On top of that, it can show ads and help third-party advertisers. Due to these reasons, it is advised that you remove BubblePDF from your Google Chrome browser. At the time of research, it was the only one that the extension was compatible with. We have modeled a guide that should make it very easy to delete this PUP as well as the cookies it might have employed to track information. Of course, you do not need to get into this if you are not comfortable with manual removal. Instead, you can install an anti-malware tool that will eliminate the PUP automatically. Should you invest in anti-malware software for a PUP? Think of it as an investment for your future because ransomware, trojans, and other threats could attack next.
