What is I Need Directions Now?

I Need Directions Now is an extension for Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome users, and an application for Internet Explorer users. Although it offers services that might attract some users, our research team at Anti-Spyware-101.com classifies it as a potentially unwanted program; generally known as “PUP.” It does not look malicious, and its installer is free, which is why it is not surprising that many users choose to download it.

Of course, you do not have the option to decline changes to your New Tab, as this is where the extension represents itself. Whether or not changes to your browser are welcome, you should delete I Need Directions Now, and we discuss this in depth in this report.

How does I Need Directions Now work?

The suspicious I Need Directions Now was created by Polarity Technologies Ltd., and this name is linked to hundreds of potentially unwanted programs and hijackers. The more recent of them are Maps Driving Directions, Search.searchefc.com, Search.search4ppl.com, and Easy File Converter. In most cases, the hijackers are represented using unique extensions. The hijacker that is associated with I Need Directions Now is Search.hineeddirectionsnow.com, and, depending on the browser you use, you might have the option to refuse it. Regardless, it will be introduced to you via the New Tab page, which is why the PUP is often classified as a browser hijacker even if homepage and provider are not modified. These modifications are likely to be introduced to you regardless of whether you install the PUP from ineeddirectionsnow.com or some random source. In either case, we suggest that you scan your operating system because you do not want to overlook malicious threats that might have slithered into your operating system along with the extension. If malware is found, of course, you want to remove it as soon as possible.

If you enjoy quick-access links to Amazon, Walmart, Facebook, Google Maps, Bing Maps, YouTube, and similar well-known sites, you might think that I Need Directions Now is great. The thing is, you can easily add links to all of your favorite websites to your bookmarks bar, and you certainly do not need an extension or application to provide you with that. Of course, the PUP also presents a search tool that redirects to Yahoo Search, and that might convince some users that it can be trusted. Here’s a problem: The search tool is not trustworthy. Although it redirects to a well-known engine, it shows modified results, the kind that the creator of I Need Directions Now and Search.hineeddirectionsnow.com wants you to see. These might include advertisements, surveys, prize giveaways, and, possibly, even installers. Without a doubt, this is what you need to be cautious about, as well as the PUP’s ability to track your virtual activity and record some information about you. If you are not comfortable with this, you want to delete the PUP and hijacker.
