Where does Feed.tinychill.com come from?

It might seem that Feed.tinychill.com has an official website, but it is very unlikely that users would access the homepage and add the extension offered by this browser hijacker to their browsers. The interesting point though is that the extension that is offered for the Chrome browser can also be found on the Chrome Web Store. It is promoted as TinyChill – the best way to search. And since the app is on the Chrome Web Store, some users might think that it is a genuine app that can improve their web browsing experience.

However, that is not exactly true. Although there is a page for this app on the Chrome Web Store, the vast majority of users still download and install Feed.tinychill.com accidentally. It means that the browser hijacker comes with software bundles. Where do users encounter these bundles?

It is possible to come across software bundles almost anywhere. If you tend to download programs from file-sharing websites (third-party source), you can be almost sure that most of those installers will have several apps bundled together. Now, what you have to understand is that this kind of software distribution tactic is not illegal. In reality, these sites do not force the likes of Feed.tinychill.com upon you. You can always choose to deselect the unwanted components during the installation, but the problem is that users tend to breeze through the installation without checking all the steps. As a result, they end up with browser hijackers, adware apps, and other potential threats on their systems.

What does Feed.tinychill.com do?

Although browser hijackers are not direct computer security threats, they can easily expose you to potentially corrupt content. Consequently, that can lead to a malware infection, too. From what we know, Feed.tinychill.com mostly works as a search engine redirect. It means that this application monitors and redirects your search queries to affiliated websites.

Our research team has found that Feed.tinychill.com is known to redirect your search queries to snapdo.com, sidecubes.com, or modified search results on Searchfinder. It also means that Feed.tinychill.com might come bundled with anything that is associated with the previously mentioned third-party search providers. So, if you are about to upgrade your search engine, you might as well want to make sure that you are using a reliable service.

From this, we can see that Feed.tinychill.com works more like a mediator between some content and the program that wants to promote that content. All by itself, it cannot cause too much harm. However, we have to remember that such hijackers DO NOT review the content they promote and the websites they redirect you to. Thus, if a malware distributor decides to make use of this app to promote malicious program, you might be in a serious trouble.

Of course, malware infection through a browser hijacker is the worst-case scenario. Most of the time, hijackers are used for online marketing, where they collect your personally non-identifiable information, so that someone could sell their products to you. But we have to take all the potential threats into consideration, and you have Feed.tinychill.com on-board, you should remove it right now.
