What is Edentulatecontrol?

Edentulatecontrol is a browser extension you might be asked to install in order to leave a website you could be redirected too without asking any permission. Our researchers at Anti-spyware-101.com says the moment you end up on such a site; it could go full-screen making it more troublesome to close the unwanted tab or the browser itself. Under such circumstances, the add-on was categorized as a potentially unwanted program or a PUP in short. Further, in the article, we will tell you where the application comes from in more detail, also what may happen if it is added, and how it can be erased from the browser, it is compatible with. For users, who decide not to take any chances with Edentulatecontrol and want to get rid of it right away we will place removal instructions as well just below the article.testtesttest

Where does Edentulatecontrol come from?

For some time the extension was distributed through Chrome Web Store page; its ID number was fdcjlcgpnmedldaomijaeniedmfeobfl. However, it appears to be with time Edentulatecontrol was removed from the mentioned website. Nevertheless, our researchers noticed the PUP being distributed through unreliable web pages the user might get redirected to while clicking malicious pop-up ads or interacting with ads or other content on questionable file-sharing web pages. As we said earlier, after the redirection, the browser could be forced to go full-screen to make it harder to exit the website for inexperienced users. If you ever end up in such situation, have it in mind you can exit full-screen mode by pressing the F11 key once. On top of the site, there could be a pop-up messaging claiming you have to install the suggested extension if you wish to leave the opened web page. In reality, sometimes you can exit it by simply closing the tab it was opened on or in the worst case scenario by forcefully closing the browser via Control Panel. Thus, if you ever end up in a similar situation again, we advise you to remain calm and not to put up with any requests to add programs you do not want.

How does Edentulatecontrol work?

There is not much to say about the add-on’s working manner because it does not do a lot. Edentulatecontrol can be added only by Google Chrome users. After it settles in the PUP should create an icon a bit below the browser’s “Restore Down” button. If the icon is clicked, it should open a pop-up window or to be more precise a game called 2048; where you most likely have to insert numbers in correct order. It is rather strange that an extension with such limited functionality would be recommended as a “must-have” add-on. Unfortunately, there is a chance the provided game is not the only PUP’s functionality, as the application could also collect user’s information, although we cannot confirm it. If our researchers are right, and the application’s primary purpose is indeed to collect data related to your interests, browsing habits, and so on, it is quite likely it might be later used to display targeted advertising content. Since there is not much information about Edentulatecontrol and it falls under the classification of PUPs, we do not think the application or the advertising it might be displayed could be trusted.
