What is EasyArcade New Tab Extension?

EasyArcade New Tab Extension, also known as GetEasyArcade, is a browser extension that should work both on Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. It is promoted as a beneficial piece of software that can give “access to thousands of FREE Games with UNLIMITED play time right in your browser.” Because of this, we are not surprised at all that some users install this piece of software directly from its official website http://www.geteasyarcade.com or the Chrome Web Store (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/easy-arcade/apbofmodpodebgolpnejglhedmblmfen). If you are one of them, you should know that EasyArcade New Tab Extension is a potentially unwanted program no matter how useful it seems to be. Potentially unwanted programs are not harmful infections, but they cannot be called fully reliable programs either due to undesirable activities they perform on users’ computers. Continue reading to find out what you can expect from EasyArcade New Tab Extension if you keep it installed. We hope you will decide to delete it after you find more about it because even though it is not dangerous malware, it is a typical potentially unwanted application that might act in an undesirable way.

What does EasyArcade New Tab Extension do?

If you ever install EasyArcade New Tab Extension from its official website, the Chrome Web Store, or it somehow enters your PC without permission, you will immediately find the changes applied to your browsers. As mentioned above, it should only affect Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. Specifically speaking, you will find a new page set as your homepage and New Tab. You will find a search box powered by mysearch.com on this page. Additionally, quick-access buttons at the top of the page will allow you to access a collection of games. Specialists at anti-spyware-101.com have noticed that users can only download .swf (Flash Player) files of these games, and then they have to use another program to launch them. Because of this, we cannot consider EasyArcade New Tab Extension a very beneficial application. If you are one of those users who have found it useful, you should know that it has several drawbacks too. First, you should not use its search tool to perform web searches because you might be presented with the modified search results. These modified search results are third-party links that open all kinds of third-party pages, so it might be dangerous to click on them. You cannot avoid them if you use the search tool promoted by EasyArcade New Tab Extension because they are not very easy to recognize. Furthermore, this browser extension will collect several types of information about you if you keep it: 1) information by which you may be personally identified, 2) information that does not identify you, and 3) some technical details. The recorded data might be shared with third parties, so you should not let this potentially unwanted program collect information about you if you do not want third parties to find out something about you.

Where does EasyArcade New Tab Extension come from?

EasyArcade New Tab Extension can be downloaded directly from its official website or the Chrome Web Store, but it does not mean that it cannot arrive on users’ computers somehow differently. According to our malware researchers, this potentially unwanted program might also be spread bundled. On top of that, users might install it by clicking on a pop-up advertisement promoting it once. Users often come across such pop-up ads on untrustworthy domains or P2P websites, but you might see them open on your screen out of the blue from time to time too if you have an advertising-supported application (adware) active on your computer. In the latter case, the removal of adware is a necessary step as well.
