Where does ConvertrzSearch come from?

There has been an onslaught of similar browser extensions over the last few months. Since the functionality and the distribution method are more or less similar, we can assume that ConvertrzSearch belongs to the same extension group as ProductManualsPro Toolbar, Burst Search, Search-Plus, and multiple other extensions that are also compatible with the Chrome browser. Al these extensions usually get distributed through official channels (like official websites and Chrome Web Store), but they can also come bundled with freeware or through redirects and pop-ups.

Redirects and pop-ups could reach you through websites that support third-party advertising. It doesn’t have to be a website that promotes suspicious content. It could be your favorite streaming page. If that website provides free content, it has to make money in some other way. Thus, it could employ third-party advertisements to make up for its server fees. Third-party ads might display outgoing links that lead to other sites, and it’s also possible to launch pop-ups and redirect windows that promote ConvertrzSearch, too.

When you encounter such pop-ups, you should close those windows without any further ado. But some users might think that closing the window requires clicking the notification box that pops up as well. That’s not the case. The truth is that by clicking the notification box, you add ConvertrzSearch to your browser. At the same time, you indirectly agree to give this extension permissions that allow it to function on your system.

What does ConvertrzSearch do?

Right before the installation, ConvertrzSearch asks for permission to read your browsing history and change your search settings to Since the extension says it can provide you with “the best way to search,” it changes your search settings. If you don’t know that in advance, you might think that you were infected with a browser hijacker. However, once again, we would like to point out that ConvertrzSearch enters your system with your permission. You might not be aware of the fact that you’ve given your permission already, but the extension is there because you’ve authorized it.

On the other hand, it is very unlikely whether ConvertrzSearch can provide you with something original. One would expect the extension to come with an original search provider, but this app employs Yahoo! Search engine to provide their search results. So, the question is, why would you need a third-party application to redirect you to a search engine, when you can access it directly? When you can actually set it as your default search provider? Employing a third-party application is actually quite redundant.

Not to mention that this application can inadvertently expose you to something dangerous. For instance, if ConvertrzSearch starts displaying commercial ads that are related to your likes and preferences, some of those ads may contain outgoing links, leading to potentially harmful websites. It doesn’t mean that ConvertrzSearch tries to infect you with malware or tries to steal your personal information. It’s just that the application cannot review the third-party content it promotes, so you are entirely on your own here.

How do I remove ConvertrzSearch?

Keeping in mind such security threats, it would be a good idea to remove ConvertrzSearch today. You can simply restore your browser settings to default, and that would be it. However, if you want to make sure that your system is safe and secure, you might want to run a full system scan with the SpyHunter free scanner. Let’s not forget that potentially unwanted programs often travel in packs, so it is possible that you have more unwanted apps on-board.

Investing in a security tool of your choice wouldn’t be enough to protect you from such apps in the future, though. Please consider reviewing your browsing habits, too.
